The band broke up in 2014 with reunion shows in 2018 and 2019 but now they’re officially making a proper return with new material.
The band confirmed after their reunion shows that they won’t be making a full comeback anytime soon due to other commitments in their life but now a new record is coming.
Following that, in early 2019 they did a short run of shows in Australia with a North American tour to follow.
More recently, the band hosted a livestream event on May 24 performing acoustic tracks where they made the announcement.

Now, they’ll be preparing their first bit of new music since Lowborn aside from a 2015 live album.
“We decided we like each other enough to work on writing music together again,” frontman Stephen Christian said during the livestream.
They were planning on playing shows in the US this summer but with the coronavirus pandemic making concerts impossible to host the new album will likely be arriving sooner than expected.
Fans are undeniably happy about the news. You can see some of their reactions below.

Fun fact: The only band I ever cried for when they disbanded was @anberlin.
Funner fact: Also the only band I’ve ever jumped up and down for when they announced a new record.
Funnest fact: That new record announcement I jumped up and down for was last night. #anberlinLP8
