Underøath Calls It Quits

TAMPA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Christian Metalcore band Underøath has announced that they plan to disband after 15 years of making music together.

“It’s sad to say that we feel like it’s time to close this chapter, but we have never seen things more clearly,” says vocalist Spencer Chamberlain in a statement published on the band's website. “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.”

The Tampa, Florida-based group has dropped 7 albums over the course of their career, including the Gold-certified mid-2000s releases They're Only Chasing Safety and Define the Great Line which sold 1.3 million units and garnered the group Grammy and Dove award noms.

Fans will have a few final gifts from the band though, including a brand new 'best of' anthology as well as a farewell tour that is set for 2013, with details forthcoming, we are promised. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
