The Scoop: Florida alt-rock heavyweights Anberlin have released another new song off their final album Lowborn, titled “Atonement”, which you can listen to exclusively on USA Today.
The Spin: “Atonement” is an extremely personal song for frontman Stephen Christian, who says on his personal facebook page that it explains why the band decided to break up. He tells USA Today:
“None of us are angry, there’s no chaos within the band. I wanted to show the fans and the listeners, ‘Here’s what I’m thinking, here’s the logic behind calling it a day.'”
“My passion has shifted, has changed to being with my family and living a different life. If I continue going on with Anberlin, when the winds have already shifted, I feel like I’m ripping them off, that I’m not putting my heart and soul into my performances on the stage.”
