Anberlin's New Surrender may not be out until late September, but the band is going to be offering an interesting pre-order on this summer's Warped Tour. For $15, you will be able to purchase a pre-order USB wristband that contains four exclusive tracks, "Breaking (Alternate Acoustic Remix)," "Hello Alone (Remix)," "Unwinding Cable Car (Remix)" and "Feel Good Drag (Remix)." More information can be found in the replies.
Anberlin are back with New Surrender, their new album, scheduled to release September 30th on Universal Republic. After working for years exclusively with longtime producer/friend Aaron Sprinkle this time around the band decided to enlist legendary producer Neal Avron (Fall Out Boy, Yellowcard, New Found Glory) to capture their sound.
Although the album won't be available until the end of September, Anberlin can be found all summer long on the main stage of this year's Vans Warped Tour, where they will be showcasing some of the new material. Available exclusively on the tour - a USB wristband that will be used as an exclusive pre-order for their Universal Republic debut. The retail price on tour will be $15.00 and it will bring fans 4 exclusive tracks containing remixes and alternate versions of material from both old & new albums. The content includes “Breaking (Alternate Acoustic Remix)," "Hello Alone (Remix)," "Unwinding Cable Car (Remix)” and “Feel Good Drag (Remix).” Anberlin will also send out surprise content to fans who buy the wristband via email once they register online after purchase. The wristband will also contain a link in which the purchaser can redeem a unique pin number that will enable fans to enter their email address and receive a full album download of New Surrender on street date.
I will be getting me one of these but urgh, I like having the actual CD! This looks the same as the Jack's Mannequin Bamboozle pre-orders - I'm paying for the digital download to get the extras but I'm still going to have to buy a copy of the CD for my collection. But ah well, that's two of my favourite bands right there so I'm okay with it.
It's a really cool idea, but with a cd like this you really want the physical copy. So it's like paying $15 for some extra things then going and buying the actual cd for $9.99-$11.99. I'll still probably do it though.
