It would appear that getting the band back together was the right idea. In the past year, Underoath has gotten back together, released a highly successful album, Erase Me, toured the country to sold out shows (selling out their first-ever arena-headlining show on Dec. 14 in their hometown of Tampa, FL) – and now they’re nominated for a Grammy. The band was made known of their Best Metal Performance nomination for their track “On My Teeth.”

The band has been previously nominated for packaging and videos.

“Surreal. Gratitude doesn’t even begin to express what we’re feeling. Wild, wild times.”

Band statement

Erase Me topped the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, reaching No. 1, and entered the Top 20 of the Billboard Top 200.

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.

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.
