Anvil Everything

  • Vocalist/guitarist James Petralli told UK music magazine the NME about this Rock-Operaesque tune, which veers into prog territory: "I don't think we'll ever go full-on prog but all of us like to be challenged in that way. We listen to a lot of Soft Machine and a lot of Yes. Prog music is challenging and hilarious and we've always wanted to do something which walks that line. 'Anvil Everything' was our attempt to fulfil a bit of a prog fantasy, to see if we could make it acceptable."
