Anberlin

Anberlin was an American alternative rock band formed in Winter Haven, Florida in 2002, disbanded in 2014, reunited in 2018. Since the beginning of 2007, the band consisted of lead vocalist Stephen Christian, guitarists Joseph Milligan and Christian McAlhaney, bassist Deon Rexroat, drummer Nathan Young. Members of Anberlin formed a band under the name SaGoh 24/7 in 1998, releasing two studio albums before disbanding, with the members having a change in musical direction and name. Anberlin was formed in 2002. In 2005, the band released their second album; the band's third album, was released in 2007, became their first album to reach the top 20 of the Billboard 200, selling 34,000 copies in its debut week. Anberlin signed with major label Universal Republic in 2007 and in 2008 released New Surrender, which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard 200, with the first single, "Feel Good Drag", claiming No. 1 on the Alternative Songs chart, after 29 weeks in the chart. Prior to the release of their fifth studio album, Dark Is the Way, Light Is a Place, Anberlin had sold over 1,000,000 albums.

Their sixth studio album Vital was released October 16, 2012, rereleased on Big3 Records under the title Devotion a year October 15, 2013. On January 16, 2014, it was announced that Anberlin would be disbanding in 2014 after recording their seventh and final studio album, Lowborn, on their original label, Tooth & Nail Records, touring one last time. Lead singer Stephen Christian met bassist Deon Rexroat while they were both in high school, they formed a punk band called SaGoh 24/7. Drummer Sean Hutson and guitarist Joseph Milligan joined the group as well; the band released two albums, Servants After God's Own Heart, Then I Corrupt Youth, both under Rescue Records. After the albums sold only 1,300 units, Hutson left the band to start a family, Nathan Young was brought in as a replacement. Christian and Rexroat began working on a side project, marking the beginning of the end for SaGoh 24/7; the side project's sound transformed after a suggestion from Milligan to develop more of a rock sound for Anberlin.

They used money left over from shows SaGoh had performed and teamed up with producer Matt Goldman to record five demos. The demos that were posted on PureVolume. On the advice of friends, including Chad Johnson, Timmy McTague from Underoath, the band signed with Tooth & Nail Records. Out of the five demos Anberlin recorded with Matt Goldman, three were chosen to be reworked for the band's debut album, the lead single "Readyfuels", "Driving" and "Foreign Language". Another song, "Embrace the Dead", was recorded as a demo track and is mistaken as an Anberlin song, the song didn't make it onto the band's debut album as it didn't constitute the stylistic direction the band wanted to head in. After hearing demos from the band Acceptance, Anberlin chose to record their debut album with the same producer, Aaron Sprinkle, creating a relationship that would last the entire duration of their time with Tooth & Nail Records. A year after their formation, their first album as a new band was entitled Blueprints for the Black Market.

It failed to chart, but spurred on by their debut single, "Readyfuels", the album sold over 60,000 units. They toured with other bands in their label. Rhythm guitarist Joey Bruce was ejected from the band. According to Christian, he was "all about sex and drugs", was going in a different direction than the rest of the band. After several failed replacements, Nathan Strayer from The Mosaic took over rhythm guitar duties. Anberlin released their follow-up to Blueprints, Never Take Friendship Personal, in early 2005, again produced by Aaron Sprinkle. Charting at No. 144 on the Billboard 200, the album brought the band closer to the mainstream. NTFP was more well received by critics than Blueprints for the Black Market. Before its release, the band promoted the album by releasing a track per week on their PureVolume and MySpace website accounts, as well as on their own website. Two singles were released from the album: "A Day Late" and "Paperthin Hymn". Both were reasonably successful on alternative rock radio, with the latter peaking at the No. 38 position on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart.

Anberlin participated in a number of compilations during this time, recording covers of Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone", Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence," and the song "Christmas". Anberlin's third album produced by Aaron Sprinkle was released in early 2007 under the title Cities, it sold 34,000 copies in its first week of release, debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard 200 chart, like their previous album, received positive reviews from critics. Before the release of Cities, the band released Godspeed EP through the iTunes Store in late 2006 to give a preview to the new album. In support of the album, Anberlin held their first headlining tour, supported by Bayside, Meg & Dia and Jonezetta. In an interview about the album, Christian commented that the lyrics throughout the band's discography are progressively becoming more mature. "The first CD was childish in the manner that it was Man vs. World in the lyrics; the second was Man Vs. Man. Cities is more adult in the manner. Cities was the most anticipated album on Jesus Freak Hideout's Most Anticipated Albums of 2007.

Three to four weeks before the release of Cities, it was announced that guitarist Nathan Strayer
