Anberlin The Maine

If you look up the word “vital” in that dictionary app you downloaded onto your phone, you’ll discover that the word embraces a variety of meanings. Why are you looking this up? Because you should consider all possible interpretations of the title of Anberlin’s sixth album, Vital. The disc follows the group’s 2010 effort Dark Is The Way, Light Is A Place, paring down the musicians’ musical tendencies and influences to their essential form and culling together Anberlin’s decade of existence. The idea this time was to bring everything the musicians have learned while reinvigorating the music with the spark that initially fueled the Florida band during their early years of slogging around the country in a van. Stephen, in particular, was inspired by Anberlin’s history of raucous live shows and aimed to infuse the new music with that palpable raw vigor. “I recognize now that what I love the most about Anberlin is the high energy, the high momentum, the veins that are popping from necks when the fans scream along,” Stephen notes. “That’s the most fun. That is where I feel like Anberlin exists, in those kind of situations. And I think that’s where we excel.”As the band embraced their roots, they also brought in new ideas, driven by the songs and albums the musicians had been listening to lately. The surging electro indie pop crafted by artists like Active Child and M83 trickled into the songs, melding the band’s past with their present in a way that will still feel genuine to fans. “I feel like this record is like our interpretation of what we’re into without completely abandoning what Anberlin is,” Nate says. “For us this is the closest it could be to what we’re kind of into without leaving behind everything that’s made us the band we are.”
