Critically acclaimed alt-rock band Anberlin went their separate ways in 2014, with a grand finale that was an experience to anyone able to make it out. While the band did reunite for a late 2018 hometown show with Underoath and a subsequent successful tour last year, it appears the last bastion of the band’s hiatus is drawing to a close – the band just announced they’ll be releasing new music.
While the band’s recent comeback is not a permanent one – given the band all has families and activities outside of the band these days – this is an exciting development.

As part of the band’s Miles From Here, In Other Towns livestream event on May 24th, the band confirmed they’re working on new music for the first time in 6 years. “We decided we like each other enough to work on writing music together again,” frontman Stephen Christian said during the livestream as he was surrounded by bandmates. Notably, you’ll likely be hearing new Anberlin music within the next year, as well. The event took place as part of the band’s “making up” for a USA tour that was supposed to go on this summer. Thanks, COVID-19.
The band’s most recent album, Lowborn, was released the same year the band parted ways at the end of 2014.
