With Anberlin's upcoming Universal Republic debut release
looming, singer Stephen Christian had the following to say about the album's title, New Surrender...
Hey guys, Stephen wrote a description on the album title, check it out below:
we will all come to the point in our life where we have to admit that we
feel defeated, that something has conquered us.
we must change, not because we want to, but because we desperately
have to. we can not take life in its current suffocating state, even to
admit such desperation shows that we are feeling deserted,
wandering the barren desert,
a shell of our former selves.
it is only up from here, it is impossible to sink any lower into ourselves
or our circumstances.
but we can be salvaged, a deliverance.
no vice can stand, no fix can take.
the thorn in the side can be removed,
but you have to be willing to admit and surrender.
surrender your habits,
and your future.
this is your new surrender.
the new surrender.
