Amberlin to headline at El Rey on March 13

ANBERLIN will be headlining the EL REY THEATRE on Tuesday, March 13.

ANBERLIN’s nationwide headlining U.S. tour is off to a great start as five of the first seven shows have sold out, including New York City’s Bowery Ballroom, Philadelphia’s Theatre of Living Arts, Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club, Charlotte's Tremont Music Hall, Boston’s Axis and Chicago’s Metro.

ANBERLIN just released their new album CITIES last week (2/20) via indie Tooth & Nail. CITIES marks the group's third full-length CD and is the follow-up to their breakthrough album Never Take Friendship Personal (2005), which went on to sell over 140,000 copies. CITIES is already garnering critical praise:

NEW YORK TIMES “…grand and rousing.” (2/19/07)

USA TODAY “…towering melodies.” (2/20/07).

BILLBOARD "Cities is a whirlwind tour through the world of driving rock act Anberlin, with producer Aaron Sprinkle again serving as the guide to the band's adrenaline-fueled endeavors of the heart. The sheer force of first single ‘Godspeed’ destroys the notion that a pop song can't kick some furious butt if it's recorded right.“ (2/20/07)

ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER “…quality craftsmanship. …make way for "Inevitable": When you put softie hooks like that to a lyric like I want to be the last first kiss that you'll ever have,’you end up with inescapable, last-a-lifetime stuff.” (2/23/07)

In other news, this week, ANBERLIN streamed their new CITIES album in its entirety for fans on their MySpace page (, logging a massive 500,000 hits in just two days.
