Celebrating over twenty years as a band, Anberlin are gearing up to start the second half of 2022 on a strong note. Today the band announces their signing to Equal Vision Records and their new EP, Silverline, set for release on July 29th. Silverline marks their first new collection of music in 8 years, following 2014’s Lowborn. Anberlin gave fans an early taste of new music last year with the standalone release of “Two Graves” and follow that up today with “Circles”. “Circles” is an anthemic track about how hard it can be to find ourselves when we feel lost, and how discovering hope can feel impossible. The song starts with a graceful, slow build before soaring into the chorus highlighted by intense drums and Stephen Christian’s signature vocals.
Writing and recording Silverline was a very collaborative and do-it-yourself experience for the band. Entering Feral Sound Studios in Tampa, FL, the band self-produced the EP alongside help from friends Tim McTague (of Underoath), Chad Carouthers, and JJ Revell. The five songs on the album showcase the band’s penchant for creating incredible alternative rock, filled with engaging tempo changes and thoughtful lyrics. Silverline is available for pre-order now through Equal Vision Records.
Anberlin have also announced a tour celebrating their history as a band. In select cities they’ll be doing three nights of full album performances for Never Take Friendship Personal, Cities, and New Surrender. They’ll also be appearing at Riot Fest in Chicago, IL and When We Were Young in Las Vegas, NV. Tickets for all shows are on-sale here now.
Anberlin is Stephen Christian (vocals), Nate Young (drums), Deon Rexroat (bass), Joey Milligan (guitar), and Christian McAlhaney (guitar).
