Anberlin are set to release their new album, Dark is the Way, Light is a Place, on September 21st through Universal Republic. The first single “Impossible” will go to radio stations in mid July.
The band recorded it at Nashville’s renowned Blackbird Studio with Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Rage Against the Machine), who won the GRAMMY® award for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical earlier this year. “Impossible” – the driving lead single that soars with an exhilarating pop Foo Fighters vibe as it captures love’s tug of war – will go to radio in mid-July. “We Owe This To Ourselves,” another track from Dark Is The Way, Light is a Place, will be the main song used on ESPN’s X-Games this summer.
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.”
