Tooth & Nail Records announced the return of Anberlin to its artist roster, but for fans, the announcement was more than bittersweet, as the band announced that its next album—due this summer—would be its last.
"We are honored to welcome Anberlin back to the Tooth & Nail family, and we're humbled that they've chosen to work with us for the final chapter in their storied career,” shares Brandon Ebel, Tooth & Nail Records’ President. “Anberlin is among a few select bands that come to mind when thinking about the legacy of Tooth & Nail Records. We look forward to making Anberlin's final year memorable for everyone!”
In addition to joining the 2014 Vans Warped Tour (which will celebrate its 20th year), the band also plans to go on one final tour supporting the yet-untitled forthcoming release. Shows will take place in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, U.K., Netherlands, Australia, Singapore and Philippines with additional countries to be announced.
Hailing from central Florida, Anberlin formed from the ashes of various other area projects. Led by the soaring vocals of Stephen Christian, Anberlin also includes Joseph Milligan (guitar), Nathan Young (drums), Christian McAlhaney (guitar), and Deon Rexroat (bass).
Anberlin has had a highly successful career for more than a decade that has included six studio albums (Blueprints for the Black Market — 2003, Never Take Friendship Personal — 2005, Cities – 2007, New Surrender — 2008, Dark is the Way, Light is a Place — 2010, Vital — 2012 and an extended edition release Devotion — 2013) and has sold more than 1,000,000 albums to date. Anberlin originally signed and released their debut album in addition to their second and third studio projects on Tooth & Nail Records (Blueprints for the Black Market, Never Take Friendship Personal, and Cities, respectively).
