Underoath Return With ‘Erase Me’ April 6, 2018

Underoath’s new album, ‘Erase Me’, arrives April 6th via Fearless Records.
The album touches on the band’s demise/rebirth, their disenchantment with religion and some of the band member’s former substance abuse problems.
‘Erase Me’ is their first album in 8 years and their first in 10 years with founding drummer Aaron Gillespie.
Gillespie said of the album, “We’ve had success and we’ve come through a lot of waters. There’s been 11,000 things we’ve been through so you would think, almost rhetorically, ‘What do you need now?’ All of us are finally in that place in our lives where the only thing we care about is inclusion for everybody—for the world. For me, exclusion is the scariest thing in the world. And I think Underoath coming back now with a new record—which none of us thought was possible—we want people to know that this is your music and you can feel however the fuck you want about it. I just want to prove that we are doing everything in the most honest way we ever have. This is the healthiest we’ve ever been as a group of people, as musicians, and in our worldview.”

Upon announcing the album, the band updated their Spotify biography to read: “The band who once openly–and without apology–professed their faith-based worldview onstage nightly, have since moved beyond the realm of seemingly impenetrable polemics. At various junctures, Erase Me illustrates those moments of sanctuary, anxiety, betrayal and conflict that inevitably arise when humanity grapples with belief systems.”
The band has also confirmed a brief North American tour before their festival run this summer.
