Indiloop.com is a cloud based remix software that has been described as ‘the Instagram for music creation’. Users can drag and drop stems (isolated instrumental or vocal tracks from any given song) into the mixer, then share their creations on social networks. Anberlin is the newest addition to Indiloop’s library of stems from various artists, and Tyson Paoletti, Director of Marketing for Anberlin’s label Tooth and Nail, says “We’re excited to be exploring new ways to engage our fans, Indiloop’s proven user-friendly platform was a no-brainer for us. Anberlin wanted to thank the fans in an authentic way for 12 years of amazing support, and handing their music to the fans is about as personal as it gets.“

Consisting of Stephen Christian (vocals), Joseph Milligan (guitar), Deon Rexroat (bass), Nathan Young (drums), and Christian McAlhaney (guitar), Anberlin have been a band for 12 years. The rock group formed in central Florida in 2002 and have released six innovative and sincere albums that have affected fans in deeply emotional ways. lowborn is the band’s seventh and final full-length.
Each musician has plans for the future after Anberlin, some concrete and some vague, some musical and some not. Those plans, in various ways, will be revealed in the coming months. For everyone, this is a celebration of what has been achieved rather than the mourning of a loss. “This is the end of an era of my life,” Rexroat says. “A long and great era. It also means a new beginning. It’s overwhelming to think about filling all my time with something new, but it’s also exciting.”
