Anberlin Say Farewell To Wonder Ballroom

Anberlin

Anberlin has been gracing the world with their sound for more than 10 years now, and although their existence has affected the musical world in a positive way, they’re retiring the band to move down separate paths. Unlike many bands, where that break-up is abrupt and dramatic, Anberlin is moving on amicably with their heads held high.

During their career, Anberlin has achieved considerable success. Although their debut album, Blueprints For The Black Market, failed to chart on Billboard 200, their following albums saw much greater popularity upon release. Never Take Friendship Personal peaked at 144, Cities peaked at 19, New Surrender peaked at 13, Dark Is The Way, Light Is A Place was their highest on Billboard to date which peaked at 9, and their most recent album, Lowborn peaked at 11.

Anberlin’s opener at the Wonder Ballroom, The Weather, had a smooth, fun sound and they set an energetic atmosphere for their headliners. The crowd was more than eager to watch Anberlin’s set. A spontaneously slow-clap grew into a chaotic mess from the crowd in anticipation. You can tell that Anberlin has built a following of die-hard, passionate fans.  Anberlin finally took their place on stage and hit the ground running with their first song “Never Take Friendship Personal”. Their set was a powerful blend of songs old and new. There was a short cool-down period in the middle where they set a somber mood with a few of their slower songs including their soulful track “The Unwinding Cable Car”. But just because the tempo dropped, it doesn’t mean that the crowd was falling asleep. There were times when the crowd was singing along so wholeheartedly that it nearly drowned out the sound of the band. Other songs from the set included the passionate “Paperthin Hymn” and the highly anticipated “ReadyFuels”.

  Anberlin will continue with their farewell tour across the United States until the end of November of this year, featuring other bands such as ‘68, Dayshell, Greek Fire and more on selected dates.
