anberlinAnberlin (Stephen Christian on vocals, Joeseph Milligan on guitar, Deon Rexroat on bass, Christian McAlhaney on guitar, and Nathan Young on drums) hit the music scene with a force with their debut album Blueprints for the Black Market. Quickly amassing a loyal following and touring with the likes of My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy, the stage was set. Citing the importance of pleasing their fans and not their critics, Anberlin followed up their first album with Never Take Friendship Personal. Their sophomore album was a rock n roll amalgamation of intensity and high energy, something that came quite naturally for them.

Fast forward to 2007 and their latest release – Cities. Some say the band has matured, others feel that they have just perfected what they were always good at – infectious songs with lyrics we can all relate to and the raw live chops that are primed and ready for fan-filled arenas.  And although it doesn’t always happen this way – it couldn’t happen to five more deserving guys.

Currently out on tour in support of their latest release, fans are eating them up and returning for more night after night. Lead singer Stephen Christian sat down with us to talk about the band, it’s evolution, and his personal aspirations and hopes for the future.
