Oh, great day! Anberlin has returned!
By “returned,” I don’t mean they made a record, toured a bit, then made another one. I mean they are back to the way it should be. I consider Dark is Way, Light is a Place to be their worst record, with New Surrender right behind. Both are dry and dull. Products of major label woes. This song, however, is gold.
“Self-Starter” premiered this morning on Billboard and has been circulating around the web all day. I just got a moment to take a listen and I like what I hear. It’s Never Take Friendship Personal-esq with a bit of a rougher, Cities, touch. In other words, it’s perfect.
