Seeing them in 2 weeks. Hopefully they play a new track or two!
No way it's another full length. Just, no way.
Digging: The Wonder Years - No Closer to Heaven
That's a fairly compilationy type name
Vital was released October 16, 2012. Coincidence? Literally one whole year for a new album? I think this could be a b-side or compilation album. Like Lost Songs.
Digging: Foals - What Went Down
Knowing Anberlin, it's going to be pretty awesome.
Seems like these guys release an album every 6 months
This probably isn't a new album though...
Digging: FKA Twigs - M3LL155X
new surrender only took a year right? and that album was excellent.
True, I hope it's a new album...I just don't think it's likely.
same, but i think perhaps they might be riding on a bit of a high after vital was what seemed to be a creative renaissance for them; so that could be a catalyst for artistic productivity. it seemed to work that way for them after cities. but that's all just speculation.
they posted this on facebook. are these new songs? or ones from albums i don't have?
no way they're putting out a full-length a year later...
but minty those songs are definitely new. I have all of Anberlin's albums (and most of the b-sides from those albums) and I've never heard that.
I just don't want them to rush things out. Cities was magnificent, but New Surrender was extremely mediocre, and that came out about a year after Cities.
new surrender was better than cities. retrace, breath, feel good drag, the resistance and breaking?
although the closer on new surrender was really shit. bit of a fucker after fin set ridiculous standards.
anyway those new tracks sound really good. more of a new surrender vibe than a vital one which i like.
oh shit the third clip on that video sounds like one thing by one direction
Interesting... new anberlin music is always welcome to my library
Yeah this is probably going to be a b-sides album. They've been touring Vital and had their acoustic tour---not enough time to make a batch of new songs.
Anberlin b-sides are usually awesome though so I'm excited
Should be good whatever it is.
Miserabile Visu is shit? is that a joke?
Miserabile Visu is shit? is that a joke? 
I'm excited for whatever this is. Anything this band puts out blows me away.
I'd be a bit scared if it were an album since they definitely wouldn't have had enough time to write another excellent album yet.
hopefully it'll be just b-sides or an ep
i'm pretty sure it's an lp considering it's $16.30 or so on amazon, i'm going to guess it's a collection of b-sides since lost songs
pretty much, 'cept fin is indeed better than miserabile visu (which still rules)
Fin is like best song ever fuck you guys.
Digging: Elysia Crampton - American Drift
all of Anberlin's closers are amongst their best songs except for Depraved
I actually enjoyed Depraved, but all their other closers definitely blow it away. Hopefully this turns out to be good - cause a one year to write a new album? ehhh
Oh right nobody on sputnik hates New Surrender and Dark is the Way as much as I do
Not getting my hopes up for a new full length, the odds are low. Even a b-sides collection would rock.
Feel Good Drag was the best thing on New Surrender and it was just a remastered song from Never Take Friendship Personal.
I went to an acoustic set of theirs about a month ago in Las Vegas. Christian doesn't sound as smart when he's talking as he does when he's singing.
I'm like, so omg right now
"I went to an acoustic set of theirs about a month ago in Las Vegas. Christian doesn't sound as smart when he's talking as he does when he's singing."
don't say that, I imagine Stephen as an incredibly smart person.
arent they christian though?
hi stormy ♥. and also i'm sure stephen's southern accent is what makes him sound unintelligent.
i've read a lot of interviews online and blog posts he's made and they all point to him being a smart
and thoughtful dude
they posted some snippets of what seems to be real new songs on instagram (spoiler : they sound guuuuuuud)
already linked that above
No way it's a new album; regardless I'll like whatever the fuck it is.
"arent they christian though?"
smart Christians do exist
in an interview they were talking about how well recieved vital was and that they already started working on the follow up
It definitely wasn't his accent and despite currently living in Tennessee, he grew up in Michigan, so his accent isn't really Southern.
I'm sure he is a really intelligent person, but he just sounds odd when he's talking to audience members.
is he really not southern
i thought that explained "conversate" and "never take friendship personal"
there is absolutely no possible valid explanation for 'conversate'
lol for the south that's probably good english ...
band should conversate about quittin
wow what a great joke
Hi friends. Anberlin posted about this on the ol' fbook. Here's what they said:
"Hey guys - we're super pumped to finally be able to talk about our new release. We've been working on this for a very long time now, but on Oct. 15, we will release a collection we're calling “Devotion: Vital Special Edition”. Over the coming days and weeks, we'll be revealing different looks from this album, but in total this will have over 40 tracks!!
Live & Acoustic DVD from our show in Brooklyn NY, an entire album of remixes done by various artists, all the Vital b-sides in one place, AND 3 BRAND NEW SONGS. We cant wait to get all this music to you guys. More to come on this... stay tuned."
this is awesome. any new anberlin is good anberlin
I have more stuff to share:
Track listing of both standard and deluxe versions, as well as the artwork. Might have to get me that deluxe one.
sweet, looking forward to the new songs!
