AP.net Chat: Anberlin/The Maine

Posted by - 05:50 PM on 10/02/13
Tonight we're chatting with Anberlin and The Maine. Although originally scheduled for 8 PM EST, we've bumped this to 8:30 PM EST due to some technical difficulties for the bands first day of tour. Currently, Anberlin will join us at 8:30 PM EST and The Maine will switch in at 9 PM EST.

Update: The guys have to wrap up and start their first night of tour! Thanks again for chatting and catch them on the road this fall!

Rules for Chat
Be respectful. Don't be afraid to ask questions, but make sure that you aren't crossing any boundaries of any sort. If you have any hesitations about posting a certain question, odds are you shouldn't post it. Disrespect will not be tolerated and will be met with a deleted post and a ban.

Double, triple, and quadruple posts will be deleted, along with posts that are overly modified to get attention. No extra formatting is needed; I'm sure they can read just as well as, if not better than, most of us.

If they doesn't answer your question, feel free to ask another.

This is not a way to ask them for favors, to ask them if they'll make your voicemail message for you or visit you at your house.

Have fun. The idea is for everyone to talk together and share in a collective experience.

Some Posting Tips

Obviously you need to register for an account to participate. It's free. It's easy.

You may want to add an avatar to your account. It's that little icon by your post and it makes you stand out.

The chat takes place in the comments section of this thread -- it's just like a regular forum thread.

To reply to a post, click the "quote" link on it - and then type your reply. Simple.

To post a new reply, scroll to the bottom of the page and use either the "quick reply" box - or click the "write a comment" button.

If this is your first time on the website, remember that it may take a little getting used to - but we hope we made the experience easy for even first time posters. Hope you have a good time. Don't forget to come back daily to see what kinds of things we have going on during the day. Or follow us on twitter or facebook to not miss any important announcements.

In this thread or in te chat thread? Oh well I guess it wouldn't hurt to post in both.

To Anberlin: A lot of bands are against the use of "VIP upgrade packages" in which fans make a significant monetary investment to meet a band. However, on your two most recent tours, you guys have been a big proponent of this type of funding opportunity. Could you explain what you like about the "VIP package" idea and in what ways you try to make it worthwhile for the fans?

(would like to go to oct. 30 at Starland or oct. 23 at UT.)

2x10" is an odd choice for a vinyl format - why did you guys go that way for Vital?

We just like meeting the people that support us and giving them the chance to see what our day is like

It gives us a chance to actually spend more one on one time with our fans. If we just did an open meet and greet for a few hundred people, we wouldn't get to play cornhole with everybody.

I've seen on twitter that you guys are playing some new songs you've never played at a live show and some old favorites from "the vault" that the band hasn't played in a while. I imagine you'll add "City Electric" to the setlist - care to elaborate anymore on the amended setlist for this tour? See you guys in Altoona, PA! Safe Travels out on the road until then!

We'd love to but Christian doesn't have anymore room in his brain for songs
