Anberlin Tease Return?

By in News | 6 Comments

If Anberlin’s recent post on Instagram is any indication of an imminent “reunion”, count me as excited. I love this band and any mention of new music from them is certainly reason enough to justify a GOOD DAY. I didn’t really understand their breakup the first time (a hiatus would have been sufficient). Check out the post below and discuss among yourselves. Anyone game for more Anberlin music?

I feel the same. I’m excited, but a band breaking up in this day and age, outside of having some kind of insanely nonnegotiable and potentially violent conflict between members, seems silly. Then again, Stephen has always been such a romantic, I can see the “allure” in breaking up. It’s way more dramatic! Hope to hear more from them soon.
