Underoath is excited to announce a 2022 headline tour across the United States and Canada including a stop in Cincinnati, OH at the new Andrew J Brady Music Center on Tuesday, March 22, 2022. The tour will follow the release of the band’s highly anticipated seventh full-length, Voyeurist, out on January 14th via Fearless Records. Support from the tour comes from fellow heavy music stalwarts Every Time I Die and the fast-rising Spiritbox.
On putting the tour together, vocalist Spencer Chamberlain stated:
“There was a time during the pandemic where I didn’t know if we’d ever get to tour again. I would sit up at night and try to wrap my brain around a world without live music and I just couldn’t ever digest that thought. That being said we couldn’t think of a better way to come back on the tour than with our friends Every Time I Die and Spiritbox. Our thought is if we are gonna do this, let’s DO IT!
We wanted to put together the best/craziest lineup we could think of so we could all let loose in a live setting together again. We want this show to be fun for everyone attending from start to finish, so here we go.”
The tour will mark the first time the band is performing live since their critically acclaimed Observatory livestream experience last year. With Observatory, Underoath breathed new life into the realm with a complete overhaul of the process - creating something equal parts intimate and monumental. It carried the weight of a sold-out arena show translated through vessels consumable in fan’s living rooms. What made it all the more impactful was the fact that the entire initiative was dreamt up and brought to fruition largely by the band’s internal team. Thus, providing another shining reminder of the innovation that the six members of Underoath are capable of pulling together.
Voyeurist is available for pre-order now, including a deluxe animated vinyl that features a plastic o-card sleeve that activates playback of the jacket’s interlaced video imagery. The band has also shared two singles from the album, the chaotic “Damn Excuses” and more haunting “Hallelujah”.
This far into their storied career, Underoath has unsurprisingly faced their fair share of adversity. Through the trials and tribulations, a commitment to their craft and a sense of accountability rooted in mutual respect for each other has ensured that each new chapter for the band continues to mold their legacy in a positive fashion. With their shared history of remarkable accolades and trying hardships continuing to shape who the individual members are as people, Underoath is still just scratching the surface of what they can accomplish as a band. There are few acts in the annals of rock history that can say their best work is still ahead of them almost two decades into their career. Fortunately, Underoath falls into that category. As the world opens back up in 2021, the band is deeply committed to living up to the high expectations that fans (and themselves) have come to expect for anything associated with the project. It will undoubtedly be something special to witness as this next chapter in the Underoath story manifests.
