Underoath's Tour Bus Playlist Featuring Porches, Run The Jewels, And Sir Sly

Oh, and Kendrick Lamar—twice.

By Claire Skogsberg - Feb 26, 2018
UNDERØATH announces their 2018 tour today, and gave us the exclusive look at all of the jams they'll be bumping in the tour bus this year. Their album is slated for release April 6. Oh, and Kendrick Lamar—twice.

Last week, Underoath fans lost their minds when the six-piece announced that a new album was on its way. Now, four days later, we've also learned that the Tampa natives will be embarking on a 24-date tour in support of it! The group will be bringing their signature, high-energy sets to venues across the country this spring for their Nø Fix Tour, which will be making stops in Nevada, Florida, Rhode Island, Texas, and more.

The band, comprised of Grand Brandell (bass), Spencer Chamberlain (vocals), Chris Dudley (keyboards), Aaron Gillespie (drums/vocals), Tim McTague (guitar), and James Smith (guitar), has come a long way since its 1997 inception, enduring lineup changes, a two-year hiatus, and a total revamping of their sound.

Their sixth studio album promises a continuation of Underoath’s unique and melodic take on the hardcore genre. It's the culmination of 20 years worth of hard work and celebrates their evolution as a group. "We cannot wait to play songs off Erase Me live," said the band. “This record means so much to us and we just wanna share that with all of you guys. Can’t wait to get back on the road and play some music, new and old!”

In celebration of the announcement, the “Writing On the Walls” rockers gave us the skinny on what jams they’ll be bumping in their tour bus this spring. With tracks from The Knife, Sir Sly, and Foster The People, you’ll have this playlist on a loop—no question. Listen below and make sure to track Underoath on Bandsintown to stay up-to-date with all their touring news!
