Biography

Winter Haven, FL, USA (2002 – present)

Anberlin was formed in 2002 in Winter Haven, FL, USA. Their debut album, Blueprints For The Black Market, was quite successful. Spurred on by popular singles Readyfuels and Change the World, it sold over 60,000 copies and raised Anberlin’s profile. They released their sophomore album, Never Take Friendship Personal, in February 2005. The album was praised by critics, garnering favourable reviews and winning the band new fans.

Prior to its release, the band promoted the album by releasing a track per week on their Purevolume and Myspace website accounts, as well as on their own website. So far, two radio singles have been released from the album: A Day Late and Paperthin Hymn. Both have been quite successful on alternative rock radio. A video for A Day Late has been released and the video for Paperthin Hymn released on March 17, 2006.

Furthermore, Anberlin recorded covers of the Bob Dylan song Like A Rolling Stone, the Depeche Mode song Enjoy The Silence, The Cure’s Love Song, and the popular Christmas song Baby Please Come Home, included on the compilation album Lost Songs in 2007.

Singer Stephen Christian is also working on some solo music under the name of Anchor & Braille with Aaron Marsh of Copeland, which is expected to take the form of a full length album sometime in 2008.

The band performed on G4’s Attack of the Show on March 23, 2006

    It is impossible for these guys to release a less than amazing album. I'm coming up close to ten years listening to them and I still get the same great feeling from listening to any of their songs.

    I second that; saw them twice during the NTFP tour in '05 (had tickets to their acoustic tour a few years ago too but couldn't make it!!), but still super bummed they're not touring the states anywhere nearby for their farewell. anberlin rocks!
