AP.net Interview: Anberlin

Posted by - 11:41 AM on 03/05/13
Our interview with Anberlin can be found here.
I can probably say that this will be our last record on Universal. It was great, but major labels are always struggling. They’re polishing the brass on the Titanic. We had a good run, for sure, but there was always the risk of getting the major label rigmarole. It’s always about the profit. It’s always about the top dollar and what’s happening now, which is why every label is signing a bunch of bands that sound like Mumford & Sons. We released a super heavy rock record, but whatever. They’ve been good to us and breathed some good life into our career.

I don't think it's the minority. Everything through Cities was on T&N.

Just listened to Vital earlier today, I still think it's their best. Can't wait to see what they turn out next.

Even so, many regard Dark Is the Way and Vital to be on par with Cities.

Vital is probably the best album of their careers.

Huh, interesting. All my friends love their latest two, and I seem to remember that on AP as well, but maybe I'm wrong.

I think their run on Universal was pretty impressive considering how many other bands like them get dropped after one album and these guys lasted 5 years or so. Vital was such a good record. These guys have a lot of momentum so they should be fine if they decide to go the independent route.

Vital is Cities packaged in a radio-ready format. This band will never top Cities
