Top 10 Anberlin Songs

Our top 10 Anberlin songs introduce us to an American band that has been quite notable in the alternative rock and emo music genres. Initially, the original members of Anberlin had in 1998 formed a band SaGoh 24/7, where they released two albums. However, they would disband to establish a new band, with the new name ushering a change in musical direction for the members. The band used the money they had obtained from the few successful shows from their former band to record several demos for their new journey teaming up with producer Goldman. Anberlin would later rework three of the demos they had recorded for their debut album. However, they would have producer Aaron Sprinkle who had helped Acceptance with its demos.
