How does a band that’s been in the music game celebrate its 20th anniversary?

Announce a massive anniversary tour? Check.

Sign to a new record label? Check.

Announce a new album to coincide with said tour? Double check.

On Wednesday (Jan. 8), Silverstein revealed plans to unleash their tenth studio album later this year. Titled A Beautiful Place to Drown, the new set of tunes is due out on March 6 through independent record label UNFD. Pre-orders for the record are currently available for purchase here.

Taking to social media (like everyone does nowadays), the Canadian group made the official announcement.

“We are proud to announce our new album, ‘A Beautiful Place to Drown’ available on March 6 via UNFD (you can pre-order now),” the band posted.

The post continues: “We poured every ounce of energy and emotion into this body of work and truly believe it’s our best yet.”

To coincide with the new album announcement, the quintet also debuted the album’s lead single, “Infinite.” The barely three-minute track features Underoath/the Almost’s Aaron Gillespie.

Check out the new song above.

Silverstein’s last studio album was 2017’s Dead Reflection. Last February, the five-piece released a retrospective album titled Redux: The First Ten Years. The compilation featured newly-recorded versions of select songs from their first four studio albums (When Broken is Easily Fixed, Discovering the Waterfront, Arrivals & Departures, and A Shipwreck in the Sand).

Silverstein also surprised fans by releasing a single titled “Burn it Down” last summer featuring Beartooth’s Caleb Shomo.

Later this year, the group will embark on their massive 20th-anniversary tour. The 33-stop outing begins on Feb. 28 at the London Music Hall in London, Ontario, and concludes a month and a half later on April 11 at the Danforth in Toronto.

Mayday Parade, The Juliana Theory, Story of the Year added to Warped Rewind at Sea

Back in December, the inaugural Warped Rewind at Sea was announced. The music-centric cruise would take all the good aspects of the annual punk rock music festival known as the Vans Warped Tour and place it on a boat instead of a hot parking lot. During the announcement, it was also revealed that 3OH!3, Bowling for Soup, Cartel, Good Charlotte, Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Simple Plan, and the Starting Line would all perform during the four-night excursion. At the time, Warped Tour founder, Kevin Lyman had promised that many more artists would be revealed at a later time.

On Thursday (Jan. 19), more Warped Tour veterans were added to the lineup. Mayday Parade, Story of the Year, Face to Face, The Juliana Theory, and Underoath’s Aaron Gillespie would also be hitting the high seas at the end of October/beginning of November.

The announcement was officially made on the music cruise’s social media accounts. “Let’s go! Story of the Year, Mayday Parade, The Juliana Theory, Face to Face, Aaron Gillespie, and the Emo Band are joining the party,” says the high-sea music festival’s Twitter accompanied by a short clip announcing the additions.

Warped Rewind at Sea will take place during the weekend of Oct. 28, 2017-Nov. 1, 2017. The excursion will include a four-night round-trip cruise from New Orleans to Cozumel, Mexico. In addition to the lengthy list of performers, the cruise will also feature DJs, comedians, a Q&A session with Lyman, activities and autograph sessions with the artists, “Emo Nite” parties, and more. Tickets for Warped Rewind at Sea are currently available on the event’s website here.

Watch Aaron Gillespie’s music video for ‘You Don’t Love Me Anymore’

It’s been a couple of months since Underoath drummer Aaron Gillespie announced plans to release a brand new solo album this fall. On Tuesday (Aug. 9), the musician debuted the music video for another track off of his new solo album, Out of the Badlands. The track is titled “You Don’t Love Me Anymore” and is one of the three original songs the musician wrote for the album.

“The video for ‘You Don’t Love Me Anymore’ is beautiful, number one, but I think also really speaks to the nature of the song,” explains Gillespie about the new song. “It’s sparse, afraid and alone.”  Back in June, the drummer revealed that he had gone through a divorce and writing the album as a way to cope with it. “This is the healing process, this record, and the making of it pulled me through,” he explained in an email to fans at the time.

Watch the music video for “You Don’t Love Me Anymore” below.

“You Don’t Love Me Anymore” will join lead single, “Raspberry Layer Cake” on Out of the Badlands. Out of the Badlands is set to be released on Aug. 19. In support of the upcoming release, Gillespie previously announced plans to hit the road this fall alongside The Early November’s Ace Enders and I Am the Avalanche/The Movielife’s Vinnie Caruana. The tour will kick off on Sept. 19 at the Brighton Music Hall in Boston and wrap up on Oct. 30 at The Canal Club in Richmond, VA.

Underoath drummer to release new solo album

Underoath’s Aaron Gillespie seems to always be a busy man. If he’s not behind the drum kit for the Florida-based band, then he’s fronting The Almost, or on tour with Paramore as their current drummer. On Wednesday (June 22), the musician announced plans to release a new solo album. The solo record will be titled Out of the Badlands and will feature originals tracks as well as new versions of songs by Underoath and The Almost. Out of the Badlands is set to be released on Aug. 19 and will be the somewhat follow-up to Gillespie’s 2015 solo release, Grace Through the Wandering.

Recently, Gillespie went through a divorce and said that creating this album helped him through the tough time. “This is the healing process, this record, and the making of it pulled me through.” Pre-orders for Out of the Badlands are currently available on Gillespie’s website here. In addition to the pre-orders, you can subscribe to the email list and gain access to a new song titled “Raspberry Layer Cake.” The complete track list and cover art for the record can be seen below.



1. “A Boy Brushed Red Living In Black and White” (Underoath)
2. “Can’t Make You Love Me”
3. “No I Don’t” (The Almost)
4. “Raspberry Layer Cake”
5. “Reinventing Your Exit” (Underoath)
6. “Say This Sooner” (The Almost)
7. “Southern Weather” (The Almost)
8. “Where the Streets Have No Name”
9. “The Fox”
10. “You Don’t Love Me Anymore”

Underøath to Reunite at Self Help 2016

The Underøath hiatus is now off.

A couple of weeks after a mysterious and cryptic video was uploaded onto the band’s Facebook page, the once defunct group has now announced that the hiatus is over. Thanks to a poster for A Day to Remember’s Self Help Festival, the status of the band was pretty much confirmed to be “on.” Speaking exclusively with Alternative Press, vocalist Spencer Chamberlain and drummer/vocalist Aaron Gillespie revealed a lot of information about the reunion which fans can all agree was a longtime coming.

When asked about why they decided to reunited at Self Help, Gillespie told the publications that it was offered to them and decided to do the festival when they noticed that a lot of bands that were inspired by them were playing it. They also felt that playing the show was some form of comradery with A Day to Remember.

“A Day To Remember started in the same town that Underøath started in, so I think it’s going to be dope. I’m really excited,” said Gillespie.

When the subject about one of their albums being played in full was addressed, Chamberlain answered with what a lot of fans were hoping to hear.

“Yeah, it’ll probably be [Define The Great Line in full] and then, depending on how much time we have, some songs off of They’re Only Chasing Safety and some songs off Lost In The Sound [Of Separation],” explained Chamberlain.

He continued, “We haven’t worked on the set for it yet, but I’ve talked about doing it like that with Tim, because 2016 will be 10 years [since] Define The Great Line. That way we wouldn’t go too far over on time.”

But when the topic about this being a one-time gig or a full-blown tour, Chamberlain was a little more mum about the topic, but did give some kind of hope when he said that he would love to play shows for those fans who were not privy to see them during their farewell tour.

“I would absolutely love to celebrate that record with our fans across the world if I could. The opportunities we’ve had as Underoath came from those fans, so I would love to play for them and the ones that we missed [on the farewell tour].”

And while the tour talk was kind of cryptic, the response to getting back together and creating new music was even more broad. While they would not confirm or deny getting back together to write new music, Chamberlain and Gillespie did agree on one thing; there’s always that possibility.

“I want to leave things open-ended. I don’t think we’re ever going to be a full-time band again, but I don’t like the idea of being so closed off to things,” said Chamberlain.

“I would never rule that out,” said Gillespie.

Underøath ‘Define the Great Line’ Tenth Anniversary Won’t Happen

If you were hoping Underøath would reunite following their official disbandment in 2013 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their fifth studio album, Define the Great Line, then we’re sorry to announce that it’s not happening.

At least, not at the moment.

In a recent interview with MindEqualsBlown, former lead vocalist Spencer Chamberlain revealed the news, breaking the hearts of fans who grew up with the album which turns ten in 2016.

“Yeah, I mean, I’ve talked about it, We all talk about it. We talk all the time. But it’s not realistic, like Aaron plays drums in Paramore, I do Sleepwave, Tim owns a merch company, Chris has a full-time job,” said Chamberlain.

But maybe not all hope is lost.

“It’s really if the star aligned. No one is against doing it. I’m still out here doing this. I would take a break for a month to do a full U.S. tour. I think for me, it would have to be a full tour.”

See, hope.

On that “if the star align” note, it appears Chamberlain isn’t the only one with that mentality when it comes to the potential of a Define the Great Line tenth anniversary tour.

During an interview with Alternative Press about the band’s recently released DVD, Tired Violence, guitarist Tim McTague said something very similar about a reunion.

“I don’t think any of us are necessarily opposed, it’s always just [up to] our schedules. None of us left the band hating it; none of us don’t like each other. If anything, we talk about how we all miss it. I think something like that is 100 percent possible.”

And not to be left out, former drummer Aaron Gillespie also said that if there were to be a reunion that he would do it “100 percent. Easily.”

With that being said, it might be time to get all the Underøath fans together and see if they can change the band members’ minds. Or maybe the band is planning it in secret and want to surprise fans come 2016. Who knows.

Aaron Gillespie to Drum for Paramore on Tour


News that Aaron Gillespie, former drummer for Underoath and frontman of The Almost  would be taking over the drumming duties during Paramore’s upcoming tour has slightly been exaggerated by social media. Paramore just confirmed that the sticksman would only be filling in during selected dates of the tour while in Europe.

The band’s live drummer, Miles McPherson had gotten seriously injured in a golf cart accident where he lost control of a golf cart, which flipped on top of him and dragged him by the face for approximately 20 feet. It’s only safe to assume that due to McPherson’s injuries, Gillespie will be on the tour for a little while.

Rumors began earlier today when Paramore posted on their Instagram a picture of a red trunk with Underoath written on it as well as what looks like bright yellow electric tape with Paramore written in black sharpie. This only led to the talk that someone form Underoath would be joining and eventually  they confirmed it would be Gillespie.


For now, check out the tour dates for ALL of Paramore’s upcoming tour and let us know if you’ll be getting the chance to see Gillespie back behind the kit.
