Anberlin – New Surrender
Anberlin’s artistic progression continues with a brilliantly produced new CD that combines a restless musical energy with a revolutionary-charged spirit that shines through on songs like The Resistance: we will hold together/to become the change/voice for the voiceless/with every common man engaged. In the song Burn Out Brighter (Northern Lights) the message is clear: Live, I want live inspired/Die, I want to die for something/Higher than myself/Live and die for anyone else. Other standout tracks include that haunting song of surrounder Breathe and the bittersweet Retrace. Watch for New Surrender to catch fire on national charts soon.
