The dream of many is now a reality: Underoath will reunite in 2016 for the Self Help Music Festical. The band’s last album was Ø (Disambiguation) in 2010. The reunited line-up is Aaron Gillespie, Grant Brandell, Spencer Chamberlain, Chris Dudley, James Smith and Tim McTague.

Aaron Gillespie and Spencer Chamberlain spoke via press release:

“This will be fun, just pure fun. So excited to get real closure and give all the peeps the best night ever with my five oldest buddies.” Spencer Chamberlain

“I think after the storm settled, we immediately started being friends again. I’m not sure if the ‘stars aligned’ or what,” added Chamberlain. “All of our schedules lined up to where we could do this show. I couldn’t be more stoked!” Aaron Gillespie

The band played their final show on Jan. 26, 2013. The Self Help Music Fest will take place on March 19 at NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA.
