Editor’s Pick #209: Anberlin by 20watts

Anberlin's aggressive pop songs have rocked crowds all over the world.

This Sunday, the five piece pop-rock act known as Anberlin will be headlining Syracuse’s The Lost Horizon. Since their 2002 formation the band has steadily become more and more popular. Both 2003’s Blueprints for the Black Market and 2005’s Never Take Friendship Personal showed that the band had tremendous potential. On February 20, 2007 Cites was released and it debuted at number 19 on the Billboard 200 music chart.

During 2007 Anberlin headlined a major US tour supported by Bayside, made music videos for “Godspeed” and “The Unwinding Cable Car” and signed with major label Universal Republic Records. Their latest album, New Surrender, was released in September 2008 and it peaked at number 13 on the Billboard 200 music chart.  New Surrender’s lead single “The Feel Good Drag” was all over rock radio stations, and the band is currently supporting The All American Rejects and Taking Back Sunday on tour.  So, if you like Anberlin, go to their show on Sunday, and come back to 20 Watts this Monday to check out our review of their performance at The Lost Horizon.
