Official press release:

Underoath, who recently confirmed two reunion shows at the 2016 Self Help Festival and South By So What, have announced a North American tour. Dubbed the Rebirth Tour, the band will be playing the albums They’re Only Chasing Safety and Define The Great Line in their entirety. Tim McTague explains:

“I think the thought of Underoath playing again seemed really exciting. We never thought we’d ever even want to play together again, much less be as excited to do so. It was a really cool feeling, and when discussing what this tour could be, it just felt right to play the two albums that our fans have held dearly for so many years. I think it’s going to be really special.”

Spencer Chamberlain said:

“I hated the idea of Underoath being ‘over’ and I’m not sure what we are, but we are all friends again and that’s really the most important thing. That being said, we felt like now is a great time to do a tour and celebrate Define The Great Line turning ten.”

Pre-sale tickets are available now via http://underoath.merchline.com. VIP packages feature an assortment of items including an exclusive, limited edition, double vinyl reissue of the two releases as well as t-shirts, sound check access, etc (full details below).

They’re Only Chasing Safety and Define The Great Line were released in 2004 and 2006 respectively, with both albums receiving gold certification. Define The Great Line debuted at 2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album chart and led the Florida outfit to a Grammy nomination for their “Writing On The Walls” video.

Underoath’s reunited line-up is Aaron Gillespie, Grant Brandell, Spencer Chamberlain, Chris Dudley, James Smith and Tim McTague. The band announced a farewell tour in late 2012, following a decade plus career and five full-length albums, with their final performance on Jan. 26, 2013 in St. Petersburg, Fla. Gillespie surprised attendees by joining his former band mates for two songs.
