Anvil to Rock Conan

(HER) Anvil - whose rock-doc "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" has certainly been the most feel-good, comeback stories of recent times, will make its late-night performance debut on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien on Tuesday, October 6. "The Tonight Show" performance is in support of the release of the band's new album, This is Thirteen, which hits stores on Tuesday, September 15, and the "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" DVD set for an October 6 release date.

For this auspicious occasion, Anvil - guitarist/vocalist Steve "Lips" Kudlow, drummer Robb Reiner, and bassist Glenn Five - will perform the song that many consider their anthem, "Metal On Metal," which is included as a bonus track on the This is Thirteen limited edition vinyl. The band members will also get a little couch time with O'Brien.

"I am so nervous about doing the show," said Lips. "This is big, the biggest thing we have ever done on TV. I almost cried when my mom said she might not be able to stay up that late to watch it, so we're going to tape it for her. We can't wait to meet Conan, and I think Robb is pretty excited to meet Max Weinberg."

VH1 Classic Records, who is releasing This is Thirteen, has just Posted an exclusive premiere of the album on The Leak, which can be accessed at http://www.vh1.com/artists/az/anvil/2460945/album.jhtml Those who log on between today and September 16 will be able to stream the album in its entirety.
