Having wrapped a European tour last month, UNDEROATH will begin recording their new as-yet-untitled album, the follow-up to their acclaimed disc Lost In The Sound of Separation (Tooth & Nail/Solid State) on May 24. For the new album, set for release in the late fall, the group will team with Matt Goldman (who co-produced the band’s Lost In The Sound of Separation and Define The Great Line albums) and Jeremy SH Griffith to produce.

In other news, lead vocalist SPENCER CHAMBERLAIN, guitarist TIM MCTAGUE, bassist GRANT BRANDELL, keyboardist CHRISTOPHER DUDLEY, and guitarist JAMES SMITH have announced that drummer Daniel Davison (ex Norma Jean) will be joining on drums for writing and recording the new album and the forthcoming tour. The group will head out this summer for a three-week trek on the “Cool Tour” with As I Lay Dying, Between the Buried and Me, blessthefall, The Acacia Strain, Architects, Cancer Bats and War of Ages.

UNDEROATH–whose last four albums have combined sales well in excess of one million copies–released Lost In The Sound Of Separation on Seattle indie Tooth & Nail/Solid State in 2008. The disc marked the top rock debut for the week and entered the Billboard Top 200 Album chart at #8, #1 on the Top Christian albums chart and #5 on the Top Digital albums chart. The band continue to garner new fans and widespread critical acclaim for Lost In The Sound Of Separation as well as their electrifying live performances.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
