I just want to start off by saying that there are some good bands out there, and then there are some great bands out there. If you have not yet heard of or listened to The Anchor then you are missing out on one of the great bands. So who is this band that I think is so great and why are they this months artist?
Hailing from Denver, The Anchor is fronted by Linzey Rae (star of Metal Kitchen on Youtube) along with Keenan, Cory, Adam, and Ryan on bass, guitar, drums, and guitar respectively. This metalcore group puts on a hell of a show which is high energy and very entertaining to watch. They have been rocking the scene for the last 5 years and are currently signed to Manic Kat Records. In December 2016, The Anchor released their first full-length album, A World Ahead, which charted #7 on the metal iTunes charts. After signing with Manic Kat Records, The Anchor released their next EP, Make it Last, in February 2018. Following the EP release, Make it Last charted #19 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, #11 on the iTunes Alternative chart, and #99 on the iTunes New Release chart. The group is currently in the process of recording a new album titled “Breathe”. Below is the music video for the song Revive which is off of the upcoming album.
Off their facebook page, their story states “We write music with the objective of providing an uplifting message, while promoting the value of self worth. Knowing firsthand the refuge that music can offer away from life’s struggles, we hope to be a voice of understanding and provide a place that someone can call their home.This is yours just as much as it is ours.”
This fall The Anchor hits the road with A War Within for a US/Canadian tour so if they are coming to a city near you, do not miss it!
