Underoath Confirm Tour for Spring 2016

After teasing that there was a possibility of a tenth year anniversary tour in support of Define the Great Line and several 2016 shows confirmed, Underoath has finally given their dedicated fan base just what they were waiting to hear; the band will be touring in early 2016.

A few short hours after the Florida-based band were confirmed to be playing at Dallas’ South By So What?! Festival, the band released an over a month-long tour itinerary for the new year. The tour which has been named the “Rebirth Tour,” will kick off at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, FL on March 16 and wrap up on April 23 at the Tabernacle in Atlanta. The predominately United States-based tour will feature one stop in Toronto on April 19.

But if them going on tour wasn’t good enough, the formerly defunct band has also revealed that they will play 2004’s They’re Only Chasing Safety and 2006’s Define the Great Line in its entirety while also tossing in some “extra goodies.”

In a press release, guitarist Tim McTague said: “I think the thought of Underoath playing again seemed really exciting. We never thought we’d ever even want to play together again, much less be as excited to do so. It was a really cool feeling, and when discussing what this tour could be, it just felt right to play the two albums that our fans have held dearly for so many years. I think it’s going to be really special.”

Tickets for the tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, Aug. 28. For more information, head on over to the band’s website here.

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.
