Coming off their gold-certified Define The Great Line disc, UNDERÃ˜ATH–who’ve built their career on being both heavy and experimental–return September 2 with the succinct and resolute LOST IN THE SOUND OF SEPARATION, their fourth album on Seattle’s Tooth & Nail/Solid State Records.
A diverse musical display coupled with the input of six opinionated souls, LOST IN THE SOUND OF SEPARATION is their most accomplished album to date.
By trusting their instincts, pushing their songcraft to the limit and meticulously perfecting it with Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, Atlanta-based producer/drummer Matt Goldman and the skilled mixing of veteran David Bendeth, UNDEROATH has soared to new artistic heights with LOST IN THE SOUND OF SEPARATION. Catapulting them far beyond their previous works to create a sound that’s both epic and intimate, brutal and beautiful, UNDERÃ˜ATH deliver one highlight after another including “A Fault Line A Fault Of Mine,” the melodic reprieve of “Too Bright To See Too Loud To Hear” and “The Created Void,” as well as the striking first single “Desperate Times, Desperate Measures.” Defying the band’s traditional approach, the stunning and uplifting “Too Bright To See, Too Loud To Hear” is a beautiful near-ballad destined to become a fan favorite.
UNDEROATH–lead vocalist SPENCER CHAMBERLAIN, guitarist TIM MCTAGUE, bassist GRANT BRANDELL, drummer AARON GILLESPIE, keyboardist CHRISTOPHER DUDLEY and guitarist JAMES SMITH–whose last three albums count combined sales in excess of one million copies–have worked diligently to reach this creative apex while building one of the biggest metalcore followings in the world.
Meanwhile, Hot Topic has come back on board with UNDERÃ˜ATH for a chain-wide early listening party. Last Friday, August 22, all 684 Hot Topic stores nationwide played the entire new UNDEROATH album LOST IN THE SOUND OF SEPARATION. During the listening event, fans received 10% off their entire purchase and fans that pre-ordered a copy of the new UNDEROATH CD received a special gift onsite.
UNDERÃ˜ATH will launch their world tour beginning Saturday, August 30 in Mexico City at the Centro De Convenciones. This show marks the group’s first-ever visit to Mexico. On September 2, the day of release of LOST IN THE SOUND OF SEPARATION, UNDEROATH will hold a special in-store signing at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square beginning at 4:00pm (1540 Broadway, New York, NY; 212-921-1020). Later that evening, the band will perform at their CD release party at The Fillmore at Irving Plaza in the city. Following the CD kick off party, the group will launch the U.K. portion of the trek September 6. Tours of Germany, Italy, South Africa and Australia will follow. The band will return to the U.S. for a special show on October 4 at Honolulu’s Pipeline CafÃ© before launching their major autumn nationwide U.S. tour on October 15 with Saosin, Devil Wears Prada, P.O.S., Person L and Famine supporting. Look for more dates to be announced shortly as UNDEROATH will tour throughout 2008 and 2009.
In other news, the group recently shot a video for “Desperate Times, Desperate Measures” with director Walter Robot (Modest Mouse “Missed the Boat”) in Los Angeles. Expect an announcement about the clip’s debut soon.
