Anberlin set to return to shelves Sept 21

Has it been forever since you heard some news on Anberlin?

That ends now.

Anberlin will release their fifth album, Dark is the Way, Light is a Place (Universal) on Sept. 21. The album was produced by Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, RATM, Springsteen), so expect something big.

Prior to the release, you'll be able to catch "We Owe This To Ourselves" countless times if you spend hours and hours watching the XGames in August, as the song has been licensed to ESPN for their coverage.

as for the album title, in their own words - Dark Is The Way, Light is a Place - which takes its title from a line in Dylan Thomas' "Poem On His Birthday" - examines the battle implicit in life and in love. "Love is a friction, a chemistry," says Anberlin's front man, Stephen Christian. "We need to fight it out in a good way, not with threats of leaving, but to, in love, find an understanding."

and topping that is some actual news we can use, as Anberlin does something more heart-warming by helping out Faceless International, a group poised to raise awareness about human trafficking.
