Anberlin's frontman, Stephen Christian, announces the release of his new solo album, "Wildfires," will be later this summer with BEC Recordings.

With the disband of Anberlin in 2014 and working four part-time jobs, Christian began searching what was the next step for his future. During that challenging time, he was able to create this worship project that has special meaning to him.

"This album was written in the five months after the end of Anberlin. It was a time of great personal struggle and triumph," Christian said. "Some of the greatest songs in history have come from an artist's darkest times in life. This feels like the first time I put out a record, and in a way it is. These songs are me, they are the overflow of my heart, and when my kids want to listen to my music someday, 'Wildfires' will be the first record I show them."

Following the retirement of Anberlin, Christian is now a full-time worship leader at Calvary Albuquerque in New Mexico. Anberlin was a staple in the rock music industry (circa 2003) and was featured in USA Today, Billboard and A.V. Club. Seven albums and 11 years later, the band released its final full-length album in 2014 with "Tooth & Nail."
