The veteran band -- dubbed "the real life Spinal Tap" -- were the stars of the 2008 documentary film, 'Anvil! The Story of Anvil,' which saw the weathered headbangers trying to revisit past glories and attempt to push Anvil back into heavy metal fame again.
Much of the film saw the band attempt to secure a record deal, but nothing was forthcoming.
However, as the Metro reports, they've signed a deal with the End Records and will release new album, 'Juggernauts of Justice,' in 2011.
The band enjoyed a renaissance after the release of the endearing film, playing festivals such as Download in the UK and selling out venues across Europe, but the deal marks their first full album since their self-released DIY effort, 'This Is Thirteen,' in 2007.
Speaking of the upcoming album, vocalist and guitarist Lips said, "I must say that this is by far the best Anvil ever. The production far surpasses anything we've done in the past. The excitement within the band is over the top and we can't wait to unleash this amazing CD to the fans."
