    I honestly be perfectly content if they played an entire set of the second latter of their discog as much as I love the old stuff I’ve heard it over and over

    You know, I think they really should consider that...it'd need to be at shows in smaller venues because telling fans you mostly won't be playing songs from those two albums could be a more difficult sell.

    I'd love to see them do something similar to what Alkaline Trio did for with their 8-album, four show thing. Two albums at each show over four nights. That kind of idea.

    I’d also be totally down for this idea. Vital and Lowborn are both top-tier albums from this band for me.

    Also I wish that blue enamel pin wasn’t exclusive to Australia. I would love to have one.

    They played A Whisper & a Clamor at their farewell show in ATL. I am content with anything the band plays at this point. But it would indeed be great to hear some Lowborn.

    I am sad that they haven't announced any plans to get over to the UK. Genuinely thought they would since they are playing Australia!

    Uncanny came on shuffle and it dawned on me that it is low-key one of my favorite Anberlin songs.

    Sometimes I wonder what that song was actually supposed to be called. I was always pretty sure that “Uncanny” was an alternate title for “The Haunting” and there was some kind of mixup when they did the deluxe tracklist for that album.

    I remember hearing something about how that was the original title for The Haunting, and then they just changed the name of The Haunting and then just gave Uncanny to that one because they didn’t have a name.

    The special edition mix up would definitely make sense though.

    Saw them in Perth during their Australian tour. Good to see them together again. Fun show, even though it wasn't a great one.

    They had Ryan Mendez filling in on guitar and for a split second it looked like they were gonna cover Ocean Avenue. Would've probably jumped through the roof of the venue had they actually followed through on it.

    Stephen's vocals didn't come through too well at the start of the show and the guitars didn't sound too distinct either. I thought both improved as the show went on. FWIW, I saw them at the same venue on their farewell tour and they had similar problems so maybe it was just a venue thing.

    Having said that, Stephen fucking nailed Unwinding Cable Car. Sounded so so good.

    I feel like the vocals are always super low at Anberlin shows. I've seen them six or seven times, and it's always an issue.

    Let's talk sound at Anberlin shows. I refuse to go to anymore Anberlin shows and it's solely because of their live mix. The first time I thought "maybe that piercing sound that won't stop is just because the sound guy is going deaf." The next two times, same exact thing. It was the worst concert experience I've ever had those three times. And I think it's because the sound guy is trying to get Stephen's voice to cut thru the mix, and maybe it is but as a listener, it's absolutely miserable.

    And just to make sure it wasn't me and my ears being weird, I have a friend who's seen them twice at separate venues and he complained of the same thing. Said it kind of ruined the entire show, exactly how I feel.

    /Off the soapbox. Sry.

    They sounded absolutely terrific the last two times I saw them. First show I ever went to of theirs was a similar experience though.

    I’ve seen them 12 times and that’s happened a couple times.

    But most of the mixes have been great.

    i recall the drummer always being off of the beat pretty significantly live.
