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.
The show last night was stripped down so the song probably sounded different, but all in all it sounded really good. They put on a good show and can't wait for the new album. They even had the singer from Mae joining them for a song since he just moved to Nashville.
People shouldn't expect 'cities' part 2. Their writing style has changed since that album. Now that Christian M. joined he brought a whole new out look writing wise. Prior (first three albums) were mainly written by Joey. If you want 'cities' part 2 then have Joey write an entire album without Christian, haha.
