With the upcoming release of Anberlin‘s new album, Lowborn, the band has premiered “Stranger Ways,” the first single from their seventh album. Lowborn will hit shelves June 23 on Tooth and Nail, the band’s original record label.

In an interesting twist on the recording process, Billboard noted the “musicians recorded their parts with separate producers they each selected, rather than cut the project as a unit.”

The 12-year-strong band formed in 2002 in central Florida and, through their years together, have released six albums. The band has confirmed Lowborn will be their seventh and final full-length album.

Anberlin will be on Warped Tour this summer, followed up with a farewell world tour. Dates below.
