I was unaware they ever outright stopped being a Christian band. I know most of their songs were pretty secular anyway, but I always respected that they were able to take a stand publicly as a Christian band and be popular in a secular music scene. Still respect them for not trying to live up to that expectation when it wasn't something right for everyone in the band.

From Grant's quote, it sounds like he (and maybe Spencer) is in a similar place to me; I believe in God but am not happy with a lot of what the Church has come to stand for.

Really surprised to see Spencer land on that list. Wow.
He tweeted the other day about not relying on anyone else but yourself, and for some reason I thought he was losing his faith

I was never huge into Underoath but I respect the hell out of them for sticking to their beliefs. The scene will be a little shittier once they finish this tour.

Damn no Aaron. Was going to road trip to the D for this, but I think I'll stick with the live memories I have of them from the TOST/DTGL days.

Great interview. I also hope that they record the last Tampa show. That would be something amazing to see; hopefully they do an actual documentary about the history and life of the band but I don't see them doing that anytime soon. I never was aware that they made the announcement that they decided not to be a Christian band anymore; Spencer's interview caught me by surprise.

" We're real dudes who like playing real music, and try to be as cool as possible - not in a dress a certain way and act a certain way, but cool as in "Hey, let's just hang out and go get some food, let's talk"."

If any of those dudes were in a the Nashville area, I'd totally take them out to eat to just chill and talk... haha.
Thought I was the only APer in Nashville. Are you gonna go to the Atlanta show?

It was a big part. I thought it was also the reason Dan left Norma Jean in the first place?
