Underoath Says 'It's Time To Move On'


The Christian Hardcore band you tuned in to back in high school has formally announced their split after a long, 15-year run. Along with this announcement, they revealed that they would be kicking off a farewell tour for their fans.

Vocalist Spencer Chamberlain states, “It’s sad to say that we feel like it’s time to close this chapter, but we have never seen things more clearly. These have been the best years of my entire life, and I owe that to every single person who ever supported this band along the way. This wasn’t a quick decision by any means. It’s just time for us to move on.”

They will be releasing newly recorded material on a new album, which demonstrates their evolution over the band’s entire career.

“This couldn’t be a more bittersweet moment for us. We have accomplished more, met more friends, seen more places and have just done more than we could have ever imagined, and we really wanted to just go out on the highest note possible,” says keyboardist Chris Dudley, “That’s why we have put together a group of great friends and musicians for what will be our final tour ever. We are taking every moment of this tour as an opportunity to say goodbye to you all, as well as celebrate what has taken place over all these years. The love we have and the debt of gratitude that we owe to all of you is not able to be measured in any way.”
