For more than 15 years Underøath has been sharpening its fierce eloquence when it comes to pounding out the Christian-slanted hard rock that has earned the band a glowing global rep. Blending post-hardcore and heavy metal with a decent dose of screamo, the Tampa outfit featuring Aaron Gillespie and Spencer Chamberlain has moved from blustery broadsides like “I’ve Got Ten Friends and a Crowbar That Says You Ain’t Gonna Do Jack” to refined explosions such as those that dot their first disc in eight years, “Erase Me.” The album hits hard. From ‘Bloodlust’ to ‘I Gave Up’ the band rails through a storm of sound. But that sound is no-longer associated with overt Christian perspectives. Chamberlain has told the press that they “couldn’t grow musically” under that banner, and once they let it go they “became healthy, happy….and were able to create again.” Underøath‘s ‘Three Thoughts’ interview finds them amplifying that notion, with the guys questioning recent actions in the name of Christianity. “When you believe in the rules and not the reason [behind them], then you got an issue,” says Gillespie. Watch them shoot from the hip about the act of speaking truth to power. – The video can be watched below.

Underøath will embark on the “Erase Me” tour this fall. It is the band’s first major market headline tour in support of its new album, “Erase Me” (Fearless Records), which recently debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart.

‘Rapture’, the new video from the metalcore act Underøath. can be seen below. The song is taken from the band’s sixth album, “Erase Me”, which will be releaed on April 6 via Fearless Records.

“I think we really wanted to capture something different with this video,” said guitar player Tim McTague. “The song is so unique for Underøath and we have always been a visual band. I think being able to tell a visual story with an audible narrative that ties everything together is one of the things that makes Underøath special to fans. We are stoked to see the reaction.”

“Erase Me” was written and recorded over the summer of 2017 with producer Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco3OH!3) and mixed by Ken Andrews (Failure, Jimmy Eat World). Continue reading »

After an eight year studio drought, the metalcore icons Underøath will finally put an release a new album on April 6th when “Erase Me,” their sixth album, drops on Fearless Records. It’s an 11-track affair (see below for the listing and artwork) and while the opening single is dubbed “It Has to Start Somewhere,” Underøath are starting somewhere else with the third track, ‘On My Teeth.’ The music video for ‘On My Teeth’ can be seen below.

“We’ve had success and we’ve come through a lot of waters,” comments drummer/clean singer Aaron Gillespie. “There’s been 11,000 things we’ve been through so you would think, almost rhetorically, ‘What do you need now?’ All of us are finally in that place in our lives where the only thing we care about is inclusion for everybody—for the world. For me, exclusion is the scariest thing in the world. And I think Underøath coming back now with a new record—which none of us thought was possible—we want people to know that this is your music and you can feel however the fuck you want about it. I just want to prove that we are doing everything in the most honest way we ever have. This is the healthiest we’ve ever been as a group of people, as musicians, and in our worldview.” Continue reading »
