I can probably say that this will be our last record on Universal. It was great, but major labels are always struggling. Theyíre polishing the brass on the Titanic. We had a good run, for sure, but there was always the risk of getting the major label rigmarole. Itís always about the profit. Itís always about the top dollar and whatís happening now, which is why every label is signing a bunch of bands that sound like Mumford & Sons. We released a super heavy rock record, but whatever. Theyíve been good to us and breathed some good life into our career.
At Anberlin's show last night in Nashville, Stephen Christian announced the band's new album will be named Vital and that more details will come soon. He said it is Anberlin's "most aggressive" record to date and the band performed one new song.
