In anticipation of Anberlin‘s forthcoming release Devotion: Vital Special Edition, the band is streaming their new single “City Electric,” exclusive on (listen above).

Available now for pre-order via and at retailers Oct.15, the massive collection features over 40 tracks of remixes, b-sides, and brand new songs, as well as the complete “Live from Williamsburg” acoustic show.

“It’s actually a re-release but we wanted to do cooler stuff to it.” explained drummer Nathan Young to the Gunz Show. “We did three new songs and we remixed the whole record as well.” Surprisingly, in six albums, the band has never had any of their songs remixed. But rather than just dabble in it, the band dove straight in with every song from Vital getting a tweak here or there. “We were just like, let’s go for it and see what happens.”

The Florida-based band will head out on a U.S. tour, (tickets available via kicking off October 2 and wrapping up November 5 at the House of Blues in Orlando, FL. “We used to care so much about who do we take out (on tour), what’s the right band, explained Young. At this point we’re just like, ‘you know what, we’re gonna tour with The Maine. It fit well, we talked to them, they’re rad dudes, we just finished Australia with them.'”
