Today, fans of central Florida-based band, Anberlin were given the sad news that the band would be calling it a day. The group, who have been together since 2002, have decided that it would be better to go out on top instead of fading into oblivion.
The news all began when members of the band started to tweet the band’s official website onto the social media site. Once the link was clicked, it led to a video with a Helen Keller quote in the first frame. The quote read, “What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose–All that we love deeply becomes a part of us”; a sad foreshadowing that was soon confirmed.
While they have announced the eventual disbandment, the band are not leaving fans empty-handed. They have revealed that they will be putting out their final album in 2014 through Tooth & Nail, their original record label. Along with that new record, they have revealed the plans to travel the world one last time together on tour and end the band’s career in a hurrah of hugs.
So tell us, how do you feel about Anberlin’s calling it a day later this year?
