Formed in 2002, Anberlin released its album Blueprints for the Black Market to great acclaim. Amassing a following through steady touring with label mates on Tooth & Nail Records, and with singles “Readyfuels” and “Change the World”, the disc sold 60,000 copies. Never Take Friendship Personal, the group’s second album, was released in 2005 and was praised by critics, and the disc, along with tours with Fall Out Boy, Yellowcard, Hawthorne Heights, and My Chemical Romance, won the Florida-raised quintet thousands of new fans. Anberlin’s latest album, the bombastic and breathtaking Cities, is already being called one of the best rock records of the year.

In August of 2005, The Reason sequestered themselves at a cottage near their hometown of Hamilton and began writing songs for Things Couldn’t Be Better, the sophomore follow-up to 2004’s Ravenna. The demo recorded through this session attracted the attention of Juno-winning producer Gavin Brown who, after hearing the new songs and seeing the band perform live, agreed to work with The Reason as a labour of love. Though the new album is recognizably The Reason, it is a departure in many ways. Things Couldn’t Be Better leaves behind some of the aggressive tendencies of Ravenna in favour of more melodic vocals, keyboard undertones and dancier beats.
