Anberlin just kicked off a primarily Canadian tour with Paper Route and Make Do and Mend so we're teaming up with Union Events to give away a pair of tickets to the Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary and Edmonton shows. Want to win? Just leave a post in the replies clearly stating which city you want a pair of tickets for. Entries will be put into a draw and winners will be notified through private message by April 19th.
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.
I recently interviewed Christian McAlhaney of Anberlin and he had this to say about the possibility of an Acceptance reunion. Look for the full interview early next week.
Thereís always been whispers of reunion stuff here and there. Basically, I think Jason is the last person everyone is waiting on. I donít even know what that would look like or what we would do, I just want to get the dialogue going because itís been awhile. I think a lot of people would like that, and I would like it too. There was never any closure for the guys in Acceptance. We just said we were done and never played any final shows or anything. There was just never any closure.
All Get Out has been added as support to Fun. for two sold out shows this Friday, in Atlanta, and Saturday, in Nashville, before beginning their tour with Anberlin and Paper Route on Sunday. Full tour dates can be found in the replies.
