"This is us ready to get back into a loud room with sweaty people and experience something real together"



Underøath
are right back at it again with their first new music since 2018's 'Erase Me'.

The track is called 'Damn Excuses' and was ​self-recorded and produced at guitarist Tim McTague’s studio. It finds the band at their raw and raucous best, blending their bubbling intensity with callous energy.

Down-tuned riffs, banshee-like vocals and hooks that stick to your eardrum like tar, it's a belligerent and bold return from a band that continue to push the limits of what their band can be.

Keyboardist Chris Dudley had this to say about where the songs came from:

“This song came out of nowhere for us. In hindsight, it probably stems emotionally from the anxiousness that a year of isolation will give you, and that ‘wanting-to-explode’ feeling came out with zero effort. It was therapeutic. This is us ready to get back into a loud room with sweaty people and experience something real together.”

Here we goooo:



The band spent 2020 playing their albums in full from the stunning surroundings of the Obsveratory.

here they are absolutely demolishing it during 'I’ve Got Ten Friends and a Crowbar That Says You Ain’t Gonna Do Jack':
