Cornerstone Vids #35, Anberlin – 2009

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Here we are! The last video in my series of Cornerstone videos from years past. That means the festival is just around the corner. Anberline has been a regular at the festival (though, sadly, absent from the lineup this year) for 6 or 7 years now and they’ve moved from the tent stages to a […]

At first, the songs just seem like rambling yelling over some pretty rocking grooves, but as the listener digs deeper the layers start to unfold and things start to make a little more sense. Their live show is always […]
