‘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).

“We’ve had success and we’ve come through a lot of waters,” explains drummer/vocalist 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.”

Gillespie‘s quote touches on the narratives behind the 11-song release: addressing the dire circumstances that led to the demise of the band, the ability to, now, be true to themselves and with their listeners as well as the individual band members disenchantment with religion.

“We took a step away and then we realized that we are a family,” adds singer Spencer Chamberlain. “We do miss it and we miss each other. We made the decision to never play again as Underøath and then we let that sit a couple of years. Band members rebuilt themselves and their friendships — and then we rebuilt the band.”

Underøath launches the “Nø Fix Tour” on April 20. Tickets for the band’s North American headlining dates include a download of “Erase Me”, with tickets and VIP packages available via Underoath777.com.
