Tonight is Anberlin's final show. Figured it would make since to open up a thread to share your favorite Anberlin memories, say what you're thankful for, and just share one last time the greatness that was this band. We'll miss you guys, thanks for everything.

According to an interview with Oakland Press, Anberlin guitarist Christian McAlhaney stated he will be starting a new band after the final tour with bassist Deon Rexroat. He also states that Anberlin will be filming a few of the final dates of the Farewell tour; including the New York City date in which they will be playing Cities in it's entirety. The band also plans on releasing box set of sorts.

Anberlin's site with all their lyrics and write-ups about the lyrics has been updated with all of the band's songs.
The title is a mantra that we as Anberlin have always tried to adhere to, we never wanted to be ‘rock stars’ we never wanted people to think that we thought of ourselves as better than anyone. We hope that we were more than just a band, we hope in the end that we are considered friends; I felt this was the perfect message to leave out on.

In celebration of this week's release of Anberlin's final album, Lowborn, we have been posting an in-depth, three-part interview special looking back over the band's 12-year career. The final installment with guitarist Christian McAlhaney is now available here, while part II with vocalist Stephen Christian is here and part I with drummer Nate Young is here.
From the moment they asked me to be in the band, it’s been pretty epic, honestly. I feel very blessed and very grateful to have been able to have done this in two different bands now. Most musicians and kids growing up who had dreams and aspirations of being in a touring band, I’d say for 99% of them it doesn’t work out. It...

I’ve had so much success in the long term, and I’m not trying to say it in any monetized way or the amount of CD sales. I’m saying it by the fact that I went out, and I’ll be able to tell my grandkids one day, “Hey, follow your dreams,” and really mean it, and then say that I did. I went out, had this crazy pipedream, and I just pursued it with all I had. Look at the places I got to go, and look at the...

Honestly, I would say that if we could be remembered in a light of just positivity and encouragement. It hits me at different times. We were signing yesterday, and so many people were sharing these stories. “I was listening to you since I was 13.” “You helped me get through some heavy stuff.” “Your music helped me when my mom passed away.” All these things that were so deep. It was hitting me, and I was thankful I was wearing glasses so no one could see I...

Christian McAlhaney, of Anberlin, talks with The Garden Statement about how he has been "trying to arrange" Acceptance reunion shows for a Phantoms anniversary.
I’ve always been open to it, and I think the rest of the guys in the band are open to doing… I don’t think the band would ever get back together, but I definitely feel like some reunion shows would be appropriate for sure. I’ve been trying to organize it for years.

He also talks about Lowborn's album cover "controversy" -- which I guess I missed.
Yeah, we’ve had a guy that has done a lot of our layouts and graphic design. We kind of had an idea of his vision, and he sent us a lot of different versions of a photograph. I’m...

Billboard sat down with Anberlin to talk about the end.
I would rather people say, “Why are they disbanding?” than “Wait, they’re still a band?” That’s what it’s all about. Every band has to know when to hold ‘em, when to fold ‘em. And I just feel like if we want to keep the inspiration, the legacy and everything we’ve done and accomplished as something people are still excited about, we should leave before we’re back in a van playing for 40 people. Twelve years we just put our heart and soul into this, so why leave it with putting a bad taste in peoples' mouths?

I have been noticing a lot of lyrics from our records online that have been inaccurate. I thought I would create a tumblr to briefly explain the songs and give the actual lyrics. I only have the first three records up but I will finish the rest soon.
