The discography of Anberlin, an American alternative rock band, consists of seven studio albums, one extended play, one compilation album and seven singles. Prior to the release of their fourth studio album, Anberlin had sold over 400,000 albums.[1]

Anberlin's first studio album, Blueprints for the Black Market (2003), was the first of three to be released on Tooth & Nail Records. The album's lead single "Readyfuels" spurred the album's sales upwards of 60,000 copies, but the album failed to feature on any national charts. The band's second album, Never Take Friendship Personal (2005), peaked at No. 144 on the Billboard 200 and No. 3 on the Top Heatseekers charts. Anberlin's first single to feature on a national chart came from the album, with "Paperthin Hymn" peaking at No. 38 on the Alternative Songs chart. The album went on to sell over 150,000 copies, surpassing the previous album and their eventuating third album.

In December 2006, Anberlin released the Godspeed EP, featuring the upcoming third album's lead single "Godspeed". Their third album, Cities, was released in early 2007, peaking at No. 19 on the Billboard 200 and selling in excess of 100,000 copies. Following the album's success, the band announced they had signed with major record label Universal Republic.[1] Their final release on Tooth & Nail Records was Lost Songs, a compilation album of b-sides, demos, acoustics and covers.

Anberlin released their fourth studio album and first on a major label, in September 2008. New Surrender peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard 200, the band's highest chart performance. The first single from the album was a re-recording of "Feel Good Drag", which was originally from Never Take Friendship Personal. It claimed No. 1 on the Alternative Songs chart, after a record 29 weeks in the chart.[2]
