Anberlin to perform at Rams Head Live in January
Alternative rock band Anberlin announced a tour Wednesday that includes a stop in Baltimore.
The Winter Haven, Florida five-piece will play Rams Head Live January 26.
I hadn't heard of these guys until just yesterday, when Al Shipley mentioned them over narrowcast. His assessment? Catchier than the new Jimmy Eat World song, but with a look that's too "ridiculous and European boy band." In their defense, that is the offiicial emo uniform of Winter Haven, FL.
The band is enjoying some new success after eight years together. Their fifth album, "Dark is the way, Light is a Place," peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard 200. Tickets for the RHL show are on sale now.
Incidentally, Jimmy Eat World also announced new tour dates Wednesday.
