Looking for something heavy to kickstart your weekend? Then Underoath‘s new album ‘Erase Me’ is for you.
Having previously given fans a taste of what’s to come off their long-awaited eigth studio album ‘Erase Me‘ – due out for release this Friday, April 6 – with the releases of On My Teeth and Rapture, the six-piece out of Miami, Florida gave fans that much needed Underoath craving they had been missing for nearly six years.
It has been nearly eight years – if you don’t include the release of Underoath’s ‘Anthology: 1999–2013’ compilation album – since Underoath last released a record, explaining the long period away from music, Underoath drummer Aaron Gillespie explains how there has “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,” Aaron concludes.
The wait was over for fans as they got On My Teeth.
Underøath got fans ready for the release of their eighth studio album ‘Erase Me‘ with the release of ‘Rapture’.
Coming off the release of On My Teeth in February, Rapture was the second release of the new album from Underoath and it saw the six-piece tackle the story of capturing “something different”, explains guitarist Tim McTague.
However vague that is, Tim expands:
“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.”
Rapture is just another reason as to why Underøath are still one of the best hardcore bands going around.
With songs on the album like ‘Wake Me’, ‘Sink With You’, ‘Hold Your Breath’ and ‘In Motion’ being standouts of the album; whether your into heavy metal, metalcore, loud noises, or storytelling, it is great to see Underoath return to form and show why they are still one of the best metalcore bands going around… even if they did take some time off.
2018 looks to be a big year for Underoath as not only do they have a new album on the way, but a tour is no doubt imminent for Australia and the world!
