Anberlin was formed in 2002 in Winter Haven, FL, USA and disbanded after the release of their final album, lowborn, in 2014. Their debut album, Blueprints for the Black Market, was quite successful. Spurred on by popular singles Readyfuels and Change the World, it sold over 60,000 copies and raised Anberlin's profile. They released their sophomore album, Never Take Friendship Personal, in February 2005. The album was praised by critics, garnering favourable reviews and winning the band new fans.

We are so incredibly devastated at the news of our longtime friend and bandmate Nate Strayer, has passed away. The weight of any words that we could possibly say feel insufficient. Our hearts break along side of his wife, children, friends, and family. We loved Strayer and are so thankful we had the opportunity to share so many memories together.
I released my first solo record today called WILDFIRES, your support now would mean the world!
Thank you, so much,

Hey guys, This is Christian (no not that one, the other one).
For those of you who don't know, before I played in Anberlin, I had played in a band from Seattle called Acceptance (http://acceptanceband.com). We broke up in the early 2000's and I joined Anberlin shortly after.
Last year, after almost a decade, Acceptance decided to reunite to play a handful of shows. That reunion has turned into a reformation. That reformation has spawned the first Acceptance record in 10 years.
We recently made this new album available for pre-order at http://pledgemusic.com/acceptance. We also announced some tour dates (see below), and we'll be announcing more cities in the months ahead.
Short story long, I'm still playing music. Give it a listen. Come out to a show and say hi!
