Black Anvil News Roundup

Greetings all! You might have noticed that this page hasn’t been updated in some time. This is primarily due to the fact that we’ve spent the better part of the last few months working hard on the launch of our new clothing line, Black Anvil Brand. Check out what we have to offer over at, and see the image below for an idea of what we’re about.


Beyond the launch of Black Anvil Brand, we’ve had some amazing guest artists come through, including Danielle Rose, Jenn Small, Jesse Strother and Amanda Leadman. We have an equally impressive roster of guests lined up for this year. Our good friend Colin McClain will be here next week, so don’t miss out. We’ll be doing our best to keep the site updated more frequently for your convenience, but be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for daily updates! It looks like 2014 is going to be a great year for the Anvil. As always, thanks for your continued support.
