The fellas in Anberlin have confirmed they are working on their first new music since their 2014 record Lowborn. The alt-rock band broke up in 2014 with reunion shows in 2018 and 2019 yet now they’re officially making an appropriate 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 slated to be on the front burner.
The alt-rock act played a one-off show in 2018 with Underoath while the day prior they did a single headlining concert. 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.

“We decided we liked 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.
