Free Your Mind extends beyond the cut-and-paste albums being churned out, instead infusing dynamic guitars behind the soul-shaking howls and relatable melodies from frontman Slade Echeverria. Crafted in Los Angeles by producer Mike Green (Paramore, Good Charlotte) over a four-week span in Los Angeles, Free Your Mind's formation came from a desire to break out from the "fad band" chokehold and delve into what was real.

“The distinctive sound we are reaching for is rock and roll. We don't record any instruments in our songs that we don’t play live, we are going for a very raw and real sound for this record,” Kitlas said.

Anarbor is currently on the 2009 Sub City Take Action Tour, Presented by FYE. The 2009 lineup features headliner Cute Is What We Aim For, along with Breathe Carolina, Meg & Dia, and Every Avenue. The annual nationwide charity tour, now in its eighth year, raises funds and awareness for youth involvement in charitable action.
