Anberlin has delayed the release of their seventh and final studio album "Lowborn" until July 22. The release date was formerly June 11.
In an e-mail update sent out to fans, the band explained "due to some not so fun circumstances having to do with this industry, our final album Lowborn has been delayed until July 22nd. Completely out of our control, and we're really sorry that we can't get this album into your hands when we had planned."
The group also reassured fans that preorders would be adjusted accordingly, with ship dates for those who have preordered from the band's official store now slated for July 18. An iTunes preorder is also available, now including the benefit of an immediate download of the song "Hearing Voices."
Anberlin plans to spend the latter half of the year on an extensive farewell tour, which will include stops in the United States as well as Australia, Brazil and the Philippines. Although most dates are pending, locations and tickets for the first few stops can found at http://www.anberlin.com/main/shows/.
In addition to releasing their final album, prior to their own farewell tour the band plans to hit the road this summer with the Vans Warped Tour, which will take them to over 40 cities nationwide.
