ANVIL kicks off the "Droppin' The Anvil" 2010 North American Tour on January 7, 2010 at the House Of Blues in Cleveland. Originally the plan for the tour was to show the "Anvil! The Story Of Anvil!" movie and then have the band perform live after the film. This been changed to having local acts open in each market.
"Anvil! The Story of Anvil", was honored in the "Feature Documentary" category during the 2009 International Documentary Association Documentary Awards on December 4 at the DGA Theater in Los Angeles.
According to Documentary.org, "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" took home two prizes, having already won the previously-announced IDA "Music Documentary" award. During a taped introduction to the film, "The Office" actor Rainn Wilson called the film about the long-struggling metal band, a "heavy metal hymn to the human spirit."
