UNDEROATH perform on Fuel TV
UNDEROATH will perform “Too Bright To See, Too Loud to Hear”–their ambient and most-accessible single to date–as well as the epic and brutal track “Desperate Times, Desperate Measures” today, Thursday, July 30 on FUEL TV’s “The Daily Habit” at 9:00pm ET/PT and 12:00 AM ET/PT. Check out the group’s two-song performance again on Friday, July 31 at (12:00 AM ET/PT, 8:30 AM ET/PT and 3:00 PM ET/PT). For more information, visit: www.fuel.tv/TheDailyHabit.

The ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER heralded, “’Too Bright to See, Too Loud to Hear’” showed why the group has moved far ahead of its metal peers. Armed with soaring instrumentals you’d expect from someone like Explosions in the Sky, combined with epic gang vocals and hand claps, Underoath makes clear that this is not a typical band. Not only does it know how to headbang but this is also a group of acute musicians, and that talent is what stood out the most”
-(Jonathan Bautts11/16/08).

This TV performance comes in the midst of the acclaimed group’s summer-long main stage slot on the Vans Warped Tour. The 2009 trek marks the group’s sixth outing on the annual punk rock festival and their fourth run as a headlining act on the tour (see the full list of tour dates, cities and venues below). In his live review of the recent Cleveland show, Michael Gallucci noted of sextet:

“Underoath closed Warped down, one of two acts with 8 p.m. slots as the other stages tore down. They continue to have one of the more impressive stage shows, highlighted by keyboardist Chris Dudley who head-banged nearly the entire time, while switching between the keys and a pair of drums located nearby. The Christian metalcore act turn up the sonic heat, with blistering breaks, slashing guitars and frontman Spencer Chamberlain’s howling vocals.”
-(CLEVELAND SCENE, Live Review, July 10, 2009)

On Sunday, September 6, UNDEROATH perform with 3OH3!, All American Rejects, Bad Religion, Katy Perry, NOFX, Rise Against and more in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre for the Vans Warped Tour 15th Anniversary Celebration. Performances from the event and behind-the-scenes footage will be a one-night-only event airing in more than 460 movie theaters across the U.S. on Thursday, September 17.

UNDEROATH–whose last three albums have combined sales in excess of one million copies–released their fourth album 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, with over 9,476 digital downloads sold in its first week alone. UNDEROATH–lead vocalist SPENCER CHAMBERLAIN, guitarist TIM MCTAGUE, bassist GRANT BRANDELL, drummer AARON GILLESPIE, keyboardist CHRISTOPHER DUDLEY and guitarist JAMES SMITH–continue to garner new fans and widespread critical acclaim for LOST IN THE SOUND OF SEPARATION as well as their powerful live performances.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
