Anberlin Returns to Tooth & Nail Records for Last Album
We are happy to announce the welcomed return of Anberlin with the band’s re-signing and release of their new and final studio album with Tooth & Nail Records due out this summer. Anberlin has been a staple of the Tooth & Nail catalog for years, and we’re excited to have played a part in both the beginning and end of their beautiful career. In support of their final album that is currently being recorded, Anberlin will set out on a final worldwide tour to say thank you to all of their loyal fans. Yet to be announced shows will include the USA, Canada, Brazil, UK, Netherlands, Australia, Singapore and Philippines with more countries to be announced. The band will also be a part of the massive 2014 Vans Warped Tour celebrating the tour's 20 years as one of the largest summer festivals.
"We are honored to welcome Anberlin back to the Tooth & Nail family, and we're humbled that they've chosen to work with us for the final chapter in their storied career,” shares Brandon Ebel, Tooth & Nail Records’ President. “Anberlin is among a few select bands that come to mind when thinking about the legacy of Tooth & Nail Records. We look forward to making Anberlin's final year memorable for everyone!”
