Underoath to Play Self-Help Fest 2016

Underoath 2015

Following a seemingly endless swirl of rumors and hearsay, Alternative Press have confirmed that Underoath will reunite to play Self-Help Fest next March. The beloved Florida six-piece will be playing their critically acclaimed album, Define The Great Line, in full, along with a few other fan favorites.

“It’ll probably be [Define The Great Line] and then, depending on how much time we have, some songs off of They’re Only Chasing Safety and some songs off Lost In The Sound [Of Separation],” vocalist Spencer Chamberlain explains to AP’s Tyler Sharp. “We haven’t worked on the set for it yet, but I’ve talked about doing it like that with Tim, because 2016 will be 10 years [since] Define The Great Line.

As if this news wasn’t exciting enough, Chamberlain also alluded to the possibility of new Underoath tunes in the future.

“I want to leave things open-ended. I don’t think we’re ever going to be a full-time band again, but I don’t like the idea of being so closed off to things. That’s what was so hard about the farewell tour, because it could’ve been that we were going on an indefinite hiatus. And I think now, the idea is the hiatus is off. Are we writing? I don’t know until we get in a room together. Are we going to do another tour? I don’t know,” Chamberlain said.

In addition to Chamberlain, Sharp also spoke with drummer Aaron Gillespie, who detailed the band’s farewell documentary, Tired Violence, as well as the group’s reputation as a Christian band. Read the full interview here.

Self-Help Fest 2016 will also feature performances by August Burns Red, Issues, Further Seems Forever (How To Start A Fire lineup with Jason Gleason), Letlive., Tonight Alive, and more. VIP and general admission tickets are on sale now.
