Anberlin's story began a decade ago in Winter Haven, Florida, when Stephen, Deon and Joey formed an early incarnation of the band out of sheer boredom. Polk County is easily the redneck capital of Florida, Stephen explains. There's literally nothing to do. And being so young, we couldn't just drive to Orlando or Tampa to hang out. So we started forming a band. And up to that point there was no other scene in Central Florida. There were no other bands that we know of. So we had to teach ourselves everything. So we forged ahead on our own, the singer continues. Influenced by everyone from Depeche Mode to The Smiths to the Ramones to Metallica, Anberlin as we know it created its own club scene along with hometown friends, Copeland and Underoath, but really gelled with the addition of Young, a protege drummer and John Bonham devotee. The gents assumed their moniker and got serious. One day we decided this is what we want to do with our lives, Christian says succinctly.
Tooth & Nail Records will release Anberlin: The Anthology, a 33 song, 3-CD set including all the songs from three albums: Blueprints For The Black Market (2003), Never Take Friendship Personal (2005) and Cities (2007). This new anthology will be a great addition for fans that may not have all Anberlin's best-selling catalog as well as a great way for new fans to discover and get all three catalog albums for a great price. Collections like this are a great way for stores to carry all of Anberlin's albums in one SKU and make great gifts for the upcoming holiday season.
Format: Audio CD
