Canadian metal veterans Anvil have announced a 26-date US tour and confirmed they've started work on their 20th album.
The band say they have written 13 tracks for the upcoming follow-up to last year's Impact Is Imminent. In a post on their official Facebook page, they say: "13 smashing tracks all written. Expect more crushing Anvil."
The tour kicks off in Rhode Island at the end of March. Anvil will be supported by Midnite Hellion for the duration of the run.
Anvil'c career was given a boost by the release of 2009 documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil. The Emmy-winning film was hailed as one of the greatest rock documentaries ever produced. Last year, it was released in cinemas again.
