As others have said awesome interview. Really sad now that I never got to see them when they came to Cali.

Wait, so what songs are they going to play for this upcoming tour? :wave:

I had a project awhile back that I'd like to revisit. I'm a completely different world, but it's cool.

remember that Roman Carnival Of 1510 project ? i wonder if he'll work with Keith from ETID again

On a personal level, this is just me speaking for myself, Grant, I have lately found a big turnoff to Christians as far as an ignorance factor and a judgmental factor [goes]."


Really surprised to see Spencer land on that list. Wow.

Someone please record the Tampa show.

If it wasn't sold out already, I'd so be going.

because some people have different belief systems than you. is that so hard to accept?

Loved this. Especially when he calls out Southern California shows.

Why is it so hard for you to accept they believe differently?

They're not harming you, and to them, this 'higher being' isn't 'fake'. :shrug:

Great read. I'll always have a special place in my heart for Underoath, which is strange, because I never really got into anything that heavy outside of them. Something about them always spoke to me, though.

I'd be lying if I said I enjoyed "Disambiguation" all that much, though. Truthfully, I saw the writing on the walls (no pun intended) that the band wouldn't be around all that much longer after that. There was a genuine shift. Aaron was such an integral part of the band that to imagine them making music as Underoath without him just didn't feel right.

Bummed that there's no true Northeast date, I may have tried to make it out for nostalgia sake. Best of luck to all of them.

Yeah, it always bothers me. I think I always feel a bit like 'oh I'm nothing like them at all' after growing up relating to a band and then finding out they're religious. I'm from the UK though, and Christianity really isn't big with people in their twenties at all. I don't mean to come across like a dick by saying that, but it's the genuine feeling I get when I read interviews where bands just talk endlessly about God. Like I say though, it's probably a UK thing. No offense meant as Chris sounds like a nice guy.

Good interview. I'm glad these dudes are going out on a good note, and I can't wait to make that 7 hour drive to Atlanta to see them one last time.

It's not a UK thing, just more people over there have their heads on right. I have no issue with anyone being religious, but there's gonna be a day where everyone's on the same page.
