Underoath Announce Break Up
Christian metalcore giants Underoath have just announced that they will be disbanding.
"It's sad to say that we feel like it's time to close this chapter, but we have never seen things more clearly," says vocalist Spencer Chamberlain. "These have been the best years of my entire life, and I owe that to every single person who ever supported this band along the way. This wasn't a quick decision by any means. It's just time for us to move on."
The Tampa, Florida-based group released seven albums in total – including the Gold-certified mid-2000s releases They're Only Chasing Safety and Define the Great Line – that collectively yielded Grammy and Dove Award nominations and total sales in excess of 1.3 million units.
To celebrate their legacy together, Underoath will be releasing a career-spanning retrospective album called Anthology 1999-2012 and going out on the road together one last time for a farewell tour. Hitting stores on Nov. 6 via Solid State Records, the album will also include two newly recorded tracks, "Sunburnt" and "Unsound." Underoath will be announcing dates for their farewell tour next week.
