New KROQ Music: Anberlin “Impossible”
- Stephen Christian – Vocals
- Joseph Milligan – Guitar
- Deon Rexroat – Bass
- Nathan Young – Drums
- Christian McAlhaney – Guitar
The band’s last album and major label debut, 2008’s New Surrender, ascended the Central Florida group to a new level of both popularity and skill. The record’s first single “Feel Good Drag” became the No. 1 radio track of 2009 and the No. 30 track of the decade.
On this fifth album, Dark Is The Way. Light Is A Place, Anberlin found themselves in a new headspace, recharged with creativity following their touring cycle for New Surrender. The band was unsure which producer to use for this effort, but fortuitously that decision was made for them when Grammy-winning producer Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen) approached the group. O’Brien had followed their career after being alerted to Anberlin by his daughter and felt that this was the right occasion to collaborate with the musicians.
“For us, this is the best record that we can ever accomplish,” Stephen concludes. “We were absolutely in our element on this record.[pullquote quote="We were absolutely in our element on this record." credit="Stephan Christian"] I hope that everything we were able to convey on this album is inspiring to our fans. We want to bring them on this journey with us and I hope when they hear our new record they feel as empowered and confident as we did while making it.”
Just this month Anberlin relased a new single from their forthcoming album. The new single is titled “Impossible.”
