On July 22nd, Anberlin released their seventh and final album, Lowborn. So far it has received positive feedback from critics, being described as strong, chaotic, and emotive. After twelve years, this alternative rock band is going out on the right note.
Anberlin started in 2002 in Winter Haven, Florida, with their current line-up featuring Stephen Christian (lead vocals), Joseph Milligan (guitar), Christian McAlhaney (guitar), Deon Rexroat (bass), and Nathan Young (drums). When the band first started, they signed on to Tooth & Nail Records and under that label released their first three records. For Lowborn, Anberlin returned to Tooth & Nail Records after three records under the label Universal Republic. Being a band for twelve years, Anberlin is no stranger to success: in 2008, their hit song, “Feel Good Drag,” claimed the number one spot on the Alternative Songs chart, their third album, Cities, reached the Top 20 of the Billboard 200, and their fifth album, Dark Is The Way, Light Is A Place, sold over 1,000,000 albums, just to name a few successes.
