Tuesday, November 6th is the midterm election day in the US. In order to encourage music fans to get out and vote, the first 100 concert goers that come to the show and have a photo of themselves outside their polling place will be admitted free of charge. This is part of the #iVoted campaign, which was launched earlier this year with the goal of increasing voter turnout numbers.
With eight years having passed since we last heard new music from Underøath, that near decade-length absence weighed heavily upon music lovers’ hearts. When you consider all of the bands that formed using their idiosyncratic power and texture as blueprints (and then hearing those pretenders fail anyway), you can clearly see the hole Underøath left behind. Whatever real-life worries, psychic baggage or other concerns plagued Spencer Chamberlain, Aaron Gillespie, Tim McTague, Chris Dudley, Grant Brandell and James Smith at the time of their 2013 farewell tour, Underøath’s collective consciousness has been fortified by a renewed commitment to their art. On their Fearless Records debut Erase Me, Underøath have added another crucial chapter to their formidable legacy.
