ANVIL have parted ways with bassist Sal Italiano and have replaced him with Chris Robertson. ANVIL frontman Steve “Lips” Kudlow told M.E.A.T.’s Drew Masters “Chris has actually been in the ANVIL camp for some time now, having been both their rehearsal bassist, as well as part of their road crew.” LIPS also stated that he’s “glad the band is, once again, all Canadian — that is the heart and soul of Anvil”. Chris becomes the 5th bassist to be in the band. ANVIL’s fourth bassist, Sal Italiano, joined the band as the replacement for Glenn Gyorffy (a.k.a. Glenn Five or G5) in January 2013.
