New Underoath album, single

2018-02-22 by ThyCrossAwaits | 226 Comments
Underoath have announced their first release since 2010's Disambiguation and their decisive split in 2012. The album is titled Erase Me, similar to the label on a supposed leak of new Underoath material.

Along with the announcement, the band released the first single, “On My Teeth”, and an accompanying music video.

The album marks drummer/vocalist and founding member Aaron Gillespie's first appearance since 2008's Lost In The Sound of Separation.




Artwork and other information is now up on the band’s Facebook page, and preorders for the album are available at a separate URL.

at least half the band is no longer practicing christians and this song in particular seems to be criticizing religion pretty overtly.

plus there's this bit from the bio on the merch page:

"The audacity to profess your true self is a virtue. Moreover, the transparency to outwardly proclaim a significant shift in the sentiment you once held so sacred is both courageous and compelling."

I figured most of the Christian Metalcore bands I listened to during high school only labeled themselves as such because it was more marketable to kids. Most adults can't be fucked with what religion a band subscribes to. I would even go as far as to say that most adults that listen to metal are likely non-religious so being a Christian Metalcore band would be counter-productive past a certain point.

This is definitely not one of the Underoath songs with emphasis on guitar. I trust the album will have a lot of substance but this song is meant to amp live and AMP IT DOES.

Normie choruses are the bedrock of Fearless Records but I have a feeling Spencer will make sure that it doesn't sound like total doodoo as long as the rest of the album doesn't heavily feature Aaron like TOCS. Gimme my boy Spence with a 90/10 split like on LITSOS.

I enjoy swearing as much as the next guy, but I too was kinda like eh when "fuck" came up in the song.

I always respected them for staying heavy while not resorting to swearing as an easy way to sound heavy. The song would still be heavy without "fuck" in it is what I'm saying.

The situation reminds me of the latest Depeche Mode album, which could be why I am being extra vocal about it.

@Hawks

I don't listen to this type of music at all anymore. I clicked on the track because I used to be a fan of Underoath & other similar metalcore bands back in the day. To see a band I used to highly enjoy come out of retirement and make the same stuff I left in the past leaves a bad impression on the direction of the genre as a whole. What's the point of reuniting if they're just going to make the same type of music (in my opinion worse music) and not try to change or improve in the slightest?

It comes off as a safe play because this is the standard they're setting and/or following. Singles are supposed to be sellers. If this is their seller than it tells me that there's no reason to expect anything new or innovative from a leading band in the genre.

If you're a fan of this type of music and have any sort of enlightening information to change my mind then feel free to share it instead of leaving a one-sentence soft reply like that hunk of baby shit you left me.

I’m still looking forward to hearing this whole album, but this track disappointed me. I’m all for bands doing different stuff, but this just seems like a huge step back in terms of songwriting, lyrics, and atmosphere. Hoping the album has way more to offer, I know they can do way better than this because they’ve been doing it since 2006

Hell I’d even say that some tracks on TOCS are better

It’s a good song, but to me it’s probably one of the less interesting things they’ve put out since TOCS. I do dig the rawness of it, I’m just hoping they deliver more of what I love about them. There’s always a chance that the song will grow on me a lot in the context of the album, or even before that, I admit that seeing all of those preorder bundles is making me super nostalgic and I really want to buy one lol

chorus is dope, the nu metal pre chorus is the only part of this I strongly dislike tbh

Underoath have always released the weakest song first (bar Desperate Times, but there is no weakest song on LITSOS) so I'm fine with this

Drumming was the highlight, aside from the hype that comes with hearing Spencer scream again.

Aaron really beat the shit out of that snare. I like what he did with this track.

I have no issues with the chorus, it's the total lack of the usual atmosphere and depth that bugs me. The guitar work in this song may be some of their most bland ever.

I'm not big on the chorus, but the song was alright. Chorus was too much like... I don't know, Linkin Park?
I'm hyped as fuck because it's Underoath though, and the news of a new album is completely out of left field for me. Define the Great Line is definitely one of my top 20 albums of all time, so if they go for the more non linear song structures on the rest of the album, I'll be happy.

Lost in the sound and disambiguation are their best imo so I was hoping they'd continue down that dark path, but this is so much lighter sounding. This is still a decent song, very catchy and energetic and I suppose the Aaron's backing vocals wouldn't suit the direction of the last album so much.

It's great to have them back.

"people apparently really care that they said "fuck" here. i mean...okay."

Oh, don't pretend to be so indifferent as to not see the significance. No one said anything when Linkin Park dropped an f-bomb on 'Minutes to Midnight', despite the fact that neither 'Hybrid Theory' nor 'Meteora' have a single curse word on them...there was nothing groundbreaking there, except to get a bit edgier (but they were already the choice du jur for angsty pre-teens, so it didn't really herald a second coming).

Underoath, on the other hand, went their entire career being marketed within a genre that is defined by, among other things, the lack of cursing (even at the end, where even if some of the band members were no longer Christian, they were still on Solid State and still marketed within that corner of the music industry)...and now they're cursing.

No one cares that they said "fuck" because of the actual word "fuck." They care because it's Underoath making the statement that they are not the band they used to be, they are not bound by the unstated rules of their old genre, and they are not going to hold back for anyone else's sensibilities. They made that statement in one word. They probably lost half their fans and perhaps burned a few bridges with that word, but also may have opened themselves up to new fans and new bridges at the same time.

"Fuck" doesn't mean anything, but the subtext means everything.

I find it really interesting how Underoath swear and a lot of people get upset about it (no one here obviously) / but mewithoutYou do the same thing and no one seems to care (along with a lot of weird lyrics "i'm the isis flag design" being one) though underoath just might be way more popular?
