The band's last two albums, both released by Universal Republic, ascended the Central Florida group to a new level of both popularity and skill.
Their sixth studio release, Vital, looks to continue to grow and build upon the band's sound and fan-base. The quintet sorted through between 60-70 songs for Vital, about 40 of which came from guitarist Joey Milligan. Fifteen were recorded with 11 slated for the album. Front-man Stephen Christian credits producer Aaron Sprinkle with encouraging Anberlin to inject even more electronic elements into the mix. "He was the interpreter, the grand translator of how to add that stuff and make it sound like Anberlin," Christian recalls. "It's just a plethora of different keyboard sounds."
Anberlin's last album, Dark Is the Way, Light Is a Place in 2010 was the group's first top 10 entry on the Billboard 200 (No. 9), selling 95,000 copies according to SoundScan and launching the Top 5 Alternative Rock hit "Impossible".
