Anberlin & The Maine co-headline tour is set to come to the House of Blues on Nov. 5 in support of their new albums.

Both rock bands have teamed up for the tour that will end nationally in Orlando.

Anberlin originally released their seventh album “Devotion” last year but decided to make changes to it for re-release. It was retitled “Devotion: Vital Special Edition” and re-released on Oct. 15. The new album features three new songs: “B-sides,” “13 remixes” and a live DVD from their “Acoustic Tour.”

The group formed in Winter Haven in 2002, signed a record deal and began releasing albums. Anberlin’s third album “Cities” became their first album to reach the top 20 of the Billboard 200, selling 34,000 copies in its debut week. Their last album, “Vital” peaked at number 19 on the Billboard 200.

The Maine, from Tempe, Ariz, released their fourth full-length album, “Forever Halloween” on June 4. The album debuted at number 39 on the Billboard 200 and sold more than 10,000 copies in its first week.
Door open at 5:30 p.m. and the show starts at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are still available and can be purchased at House of Blues box office or online via Live Nation for $27.
