80's metal rockers Anvil will make a stop in Saratoga Springs this Friday, March 3. The band is about to kick off a tour celebrating their 40th anniversary.

Toronto, Canada's Anvil features Steve "Lips" Kudlow on vocals and guitar, Rob Reiner on drums, and bassist Chris Robertson. The band has released sixteen studio albums over the course of their career and they've been cited as an influence to bands like Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, and Metallica. Anvil received critical acclaim in 2008 for their documentary film, Anvil! The Story of Anvil. The film helped renew interest in the band, and it earned them a spot opening for AC/DC on several dates of their Black Ice Tour. 

Tickets for Anvil with special guests Night Demon, Graveshadow, and more this Friday at 8pm are on sale now through the Putnam Den and are $15 in advance, $20 day of show. Click here for more info and to purchase tickets.
