Tonight as part of their Miles From Here, In Other Towns livestream acoustic set, Anberlin announced that they are officially working on writing new music.
“We decided we like each other enough to work on writing music together again,” frontman Stephen Christian joked, surrounded by reunited bandmates (Joseph Milligan, Deon Rexroat, Nathan Young, Christian McAlhaney). They shared that though they’re very early in the process right now, fans could likely expect to hear new Anberlin songs within the next year.
The livestream was the band’s way of making up for having to cancel a tour originally slated for this summer, a follow up to last summer’s overwhelmingly successful reunion tour. Miles From Here, In Other Towns presented a full set of fan favorites in acoustic form. The event was digitally ticketed, with special Anberlin-branded masks available as part of the preorder packages. You can see all currently available merch at anberlinmerch.com.
