AP.net Chat Reminder: Anberlin/The Maine

Posted by - 02:38 PM on 10/02/13
Here's a friendly reminder that Anberlin and The Maine will be chatting with us tonight at 8 PM EST/5 PM PST. In addition, we're giving away a pair of tickets to the tour to the person who asks the best question regarding the tour. Leave your question in the replies with your local date and the band will select a winner.

Update: Due to it being the first day of tour, certain tasks are taking longer than expected. Therefore, Anberlin will be chatting from 8 - 8:30 and then The Maine will take over from 8:30 - 9.

How much pressure do you guys feel to balance a set list between older material and newer material? Obviously releasing a new album is exciting and bands naturally want to play new stuff, but at the same time obviously you guys are aware that there is always older material that fans want/expect. Also, is it annoying when fans are constantly yelling for old songs that you guys rarely ever play anymore?

If you had to cover one of the other band's songs, which would you choose and why?

In this thread or in te chat thread? Oh well I guess it wouldn't hurt to post in both.

To Anberlin: A lot of bands are against the use of "VIP upgrade packages" in which fans make a significant monetary investment to meet a band. However, on your two most recent tours, you guys have been a big proponent of this type of funding opportunity. Could you explain what you like about the "VIP package" idea and in what ways you try to make it worthwhile for the fans?

(would like to go to oct. 30 at Starland or oct. 23 at UT.)

My question is for both the Maine and Anberlin? How Do you guys go about deciding who to bring out or share the stage with? For example, Lydia is more ambient and From Indian Lakes have more of an indie rock feel while Anberlin and The Maine's newer stuff come off as more alternative rock

Question for all, and I must know...how many pairs of socks did you all pack? ;)
Just wanted to lighten up the mood, but seriously, I am beyond stoked for this tour, all of these are incredible bands, and Anberlin never fails to amaze me.
How do you handle the stresses that come from doing tours?
Take care and I can't wait to see you tomorrow!

What is your reaction to fans that tell you that you've basically been their life savers? Does it get hard being role models?

What would you say is the biggest change you've seen in your music and tours since your first album?
