Since reuniting in 2016, metalcore godfathers, UNDEROATH are a band that have been just as brilliant as they have been nostalgic.
Dropping a surprise new single in the form of, On My Teeth, and in short, and as politely as possible, the internet went bat sh*t crazy.
Then just as we thought the adrenaline was at an all time high the band released a 30 second clip about how it would be very silly for them not to put out a full length. All of which has now lead to the band releasing a brand new record, Erase Me, via Fearless Records on April 6th.

“We’ve had success and we’ve come through a lot of waters,” said drummer/vocalist Aaron Gillespie in a statement. “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 Underoath 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.”
Singer Spencer Chamberlain added, “We took a step away and then we realized that we are a family. We do miss it and we miss each other. We made the decision to never play again as Underoath and then we let that sit a couple of years. Band members rebuilt themselves and their friendships — and then we rebuilt the band.”
You can pre order the new record now.
