Canuck metallers ANVIL recently announced that their latest album, Juggernaut Of Justice, will be released on May 10th, via The End Records. The album’s title track, ‘Juggernaut Of Justice’, is currently available for free download as part of The End Records Spring 2011 sampler, at this location.
The band recorded the material for the new album at FOO FIGHTER Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 in Northridge, California with famed producer Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, AIRBOURNE, FILTER, ATREYU, ALICE COOPER).
Frontman Steve “Lips” Kudlow recently commented: “I must say that this is by far the best Anvil ever. There will be a few new surprises including Glenn 5’s first lead vocals in Anvil’s history. The production that Bob Marlette has done far surpasses anything we’ve done in the past. The excitement within the band is over the top and we can’t wait to unleash this amazing cd to the fans.”
Drummer Robb Reiner concurs: “The new album is pure Anvil with a new fresh kick, very exciting. Looking to rocking with The End, putting the music where it belongs – in everybody’s ears and face!”
Prior to the release of Juggernaut Of Justice, The End will be releasing the definitive Anvil anthology. The collection will be comprised of classics old and new, with some surprises, and will showcase the band’s entire career spanning back to 1978.
