Anvil have had a phenomenal start to the 2018, with their just-released seventeenth studio album, 'Pounding The Pavement', giving the Canadian Metallers their first ever UK chart position of their 41 year history.

The album entered the UK Independent chart at number 79 and the Official Independent Album Breakers Chart at number 18.


Anvil were also inducted into The Hall Of Heavy Metal History in Anaheim, California last week but no way are they resting on their laurels as mammoth European tour starts in London on Tuesday 6th February.

Robb Reiner said on Steve Göldby Talks Metal the week before last that should Anvil gain their first ever UK chart position, it would be a fitting tribute to former producer Chris Tsangarides, who sadly passed away earlier this month.

If you haven't heard the album yet, you can hear every track here as Robb talks you through them all.

So now that Anvil have broken into the UK chart for the first time ever, let's pack out The Underworld on Tuesday 6th February for the first date of the European tour. It's sure to be a crazy and memorable night and one you do not want to miss.
