Steve “Lips” Kudlow, guitarist and singer of the resuscitated heavy metal band Anvil, recently told Andrew Matte of The Regina Leader-Post about the huge boost the band has gotten from Anvil: The Story of Anvil.
“The momentum of the movie doesn’t seem to dissipating. More and more people are seeing it. It went from the theatres and it was shown on VH1 in the States. It’s still circulating in the pay TV circuit and I think it might reach another plateau when it reaches regular TV.”
Anvil! The Story of Anvil, produced by a former Anvil roadie, is a documentary on the band that opened an incredible amount of doors for the trio.
According to Kudlow, he, drummer Robb Reiner and bassist Glenn Five are “still considered an attraction and people want to come and see us, particularly in places we’ve never been.”
He went on to remark on the band’s state when recording their new album, Juggernaut Of Justice as compared to their endeavors in the past:
“There are labels, management, producers, all the things that you need to be successful has finally surrounded the band. When you have that kind energy and support, then you stand up and be counted. When we wrote music in the past, we were always like, ‘Are we going to be able to put this out? Are people going to like this? Who’s going to produce it?’ In this case, those questions were answered. So we just set out to make the best possible music because we knew we’d get heard. We knew we’d get seen.”
