The song, "Stranger Desires," features a light but snappy beat accented by soulful guitar and the always-perfect vocals of front Stephen Christian. It rests on the more ambient side of the Anberlin catalogue, but if their past album, 2012 's Vices, is any indication, this will most likely come as a calm-before-the-storm slow jam followed by a full-on rock n' roll head rush.
Lowborn, which drops on June 23 via Tooth & Nail Records, will be the last album of Anberlin's long-running career, as they announced their intent to call it quits earlier this year.
Fortunately, fans still have a chance to catch one last farewell show. The band is heading out on a mini world tour, including a stint on The Warped Tour, before bowing out.
