Anberlin to split after 2014
2014-01-16 by Jake Delia | 136 Comments

Floridian alternative rock outfit Anberlin have released a new video on their main website and their YouTube page. They have announced that later this year, they are releasing their seventh and final studio LP, touring across the world one last time, and are splitting up at the end of this year.

Anberlin has been my favorite band (along with Alice in Chains; I suppose the #1 spot depends on my mood) for about five years now. Can't believe this. I'm going to miss them tremendously.

This is bullshit but I know they'll continue with other projects.

It's interesting how they're going back to tooth and nail and hopefully that will mean better promotion than they got with Vital. At the same time, T&N kinda hit a rough patch last year.

@Yoyo, don't start with Cities, start from the beginning or Never Take Friendship Personal. You'll be able to apprechiate the growth of the band more.

This sucks but at the same time doesn't as much because this is how great bands like them are supposed to go. Hope I get a chance to catch them on their final tour in Germany or the States when I'm there.
I guess that also means that Carrollhood might get more active in 2015, at least some sort of a silver lining about this.

In before toxin and lakes. Can't say I'm surprised by this but I didn't expect it either after the positive response to Vital. I hope the last album is their best but likely won't ever top Cities.

Dudes were always cool and genuine. Hope to see more from anchor & Braille, carrollhood, and maybe acceptance.

As much as this signals the end of an incredibly solid band over the years, I think pretty much everyone agrees they peaked at cities and everything else was a small, if steady decline from there on.


Part of me is at peace with them ending the band before they become Oldberlin and pull an Offspring on us.

I just hope that the album doesn't come off as forced, since they feel they need to release an album. Vital was released only 16 months ago (not to mention Devotion with its three new songs was released 4 months ago), so there's definitely some lingering doubt on my part.

On the other hand, they've proved that they're consistently good, with just minor dips in quality on a few albums, so maybe I should just hope for the best
