Underoath Cancel Upcoming Warped Tour Appearances

UNDEROATH have canceled their upcoming appearances on the Vans Warped Tour due to unforeseen circumstances. “We’re deeply frustrated and sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. We felt it necessary to take some immediate time to focus on our friendship, as that’s more important than risking it for the sake of touring at this time,” the band stated.

Stay tuned for information about new dates.

I hope Underoath can get everything settled and back to normal . I would hate to see a band come such a long way and then fall apart. Underoath was getting alot of critisim because of the religon issue and maybe they do need a break from all that too. Although I am a fan of NOFX I think Fat Mike needs to STFU and leave Underoath alone .

didnt NOFsuX peak like, 10 years ago? who the hell invited them on the warped tour? i think two things about fat mike....he's a little touchy cause he's fat, and he's a little jealous cause NOFsuX hasn't had a decent delling album since i can't remember....unlike the young kids from underoath. perhaps he's finally feeling like the waste of a life he actually is....go home fat mike....people would much rather have underoath on the warped tour. oh and by the way, if the idiots above would stop jerking off to NOFsuX and get educated, they would actually realize that in this day and age, the non-conformists are the ones preaching....cause we are endlessly and tirelessly dealing with your stupid "the world hates me and im gonna go slit my wrists" crappy attitude.....go back to being some dude's b**** in prison fat mike.....he's the only one who will really ever love you.......

Correct me if im not right here, but NOFX isnt close to cutting ur writs and lame sh** like that, if f***ing anything Underoath has that soft element to their music. And u dumb p***y b**** NOFX has never had a good selling album ever, they could care less about album sales and dumb a$$ wannabe punks like u so go f*** ur self and really u should get educated u c***. And Underoath i hope that peace of sh** band breaks apart, i mean keep ur f***ing religious beliefs to urself most america is f***in Christian in some way any how. Their music can do the preaching without actual preaching.

f*** this screamo music and all its insides.Underoath is a whiny christian band. I cannot stand one more moment of this abortion of a music genre taking over and destroying what is music for my and your generation. The reason I am venting my anger is because all of a sudden it became cool to bash punk music since underoath is taking a hiatus......NO....that p***y christian Underoath band got canceled during the Warped Tour....too bad. First off, all the Warped Tour used to stand for was PUNK PUNK AND MORE PUNK now it is some fare ground for scene obnoxious douche bags running around quoting illedible lyrics and backing them up with incoherant screaming. Now granted a few bands have made it apparent they have talent (the used,taking back sunday...etc.) OTHERS like f***ing norma jean, underoath, hawthorne heights, senses fail, from first to last, and my chemical c***muffins are pathetic and hide their sexuality by saying "im not gay....i just like wearing makeup and trying on my sisters jeans".....NO i remember a time where that was called HOMOMOTHERf***INGSEXUALITY. now underoath is followed by a fanbase of scenesters whether you like to call them that or not. they LOATH being called scensters. thats the equivelant of a man CLEARLY aborting a child in an alley THEN saying "NAHHH MAN I DIDNT DO THAT." WHERE HAS THIS GENERATION GONE??????????? i remember a time when true metal and punk existed and they were (rarely used word nowadays) TALENTED. underoath is a screamo hardcore band that yells and belches out their feelings.... I'd rather see a priest scream on stage with his small christian p***s. i say metallica devil worshipping baby and throwing your feces on stage like a true punk.

R.I.P. scensters.

find another abortion of a genre

so wait....what other reason would fat mike have to criticize and ridicule the guys from underoath the way he did, unprovoked?! if thats what a true punk is......THATS A WHINY BABY.......underoath had nothing against him, theyre just playing shows, on a tour with a bunch of other groups that should be doing the same thing......grow up fat mike.....just shut up and play....and to the idiot that said most of america is christian in one way or another knows nothing.....most people in this country that make that claim, including those in gov't offices, act nothing like the way they should be.........and stop cussing you uneducated imbeciles......your just showing your lack of intelligence more and more when you can only express yourself with an f word....learn about what youre talking about first, then get agressive with your speech.......long live zach de la rocha and rage.......better than nofx and underoath anyday

NO OFFENSE I ENJOY EMO AS MUCH AS THE NEXT PERSON AND I DON'T MIND UNDEROATH BUT FOR THEM TO QUIT CAUSE NOFX WAS MAKING FUN OF THEM, COME ON GROW SOME F**KING BALLS, FAT MIKE AND THEM ARE PUNKS THEY MAKE FUN EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE, IT'S NOTHING PERSONAL. AND IF UNDEROATH IS SO RELIGIOUS WHY JOIN WARPED TOUR ANYWAY KNOWING FULL WELL THAT YOU ARE GOING TO BE SURROUNDED BY sh** YOU DON'T APPROVE OF.DON'T GO ON A TOUR WITH BANDS THAT ARE KNOWN FOR DRINKING AND PARTYING AND THEN PREACH TO THEM ABOUT HOW WRONG THAT IS.

It's funny how people get so riled up over this. Underoath usually talks for about 30 seconds during their 30 minute set about christianity and why they're not better than anyone else, they just love God and try to be better people. and as far as the abortion of music and the destruction of a genre, when was it a crime to create something that you thought people might like? If it's popular, it's obviously because people like it. They're not getting a lot of mainstream radio play or have huge promotional campaigns, so you can't say that they are just a pop culture fad.

20. UnderOath all the way writes:

who cares about scensters and punk, go listen to good charlotte or Greenday which to say the least are poser punk, what is real punk. Forget about genres and listen to the music, none of you know what your saying. How bout pick up and instrument and learn something. UnderOath is talented and have been blessed by God to get in to the Mainstream the reason they joined warped is to reach out which is what being a christian is all about doing work for the Lord not what Genre or how "PUNK" they are forget that i have the upmost respect for UnderOath for what their doing. They're doing ministry and if you dont agree go find a "REAL PUNK" band as you all say. Underoath has GOD givin talent
Go UnderOath i support you.

nofx is just like any other non conforming conformist band.they're pathetic.their ideas to "offend every single christian" or just piss anyone off,is basically like reverse psycology.they don't care what the fans think?they'd be nowhere without fans.not that their fans can function properly as it is.the reason that they try to offend oh so many people is because THAT'S what draws them in.the whole "hey they're badass,they're f*** THIS f*** THAT on serious issues,if i go along with them i'm hot sh**!"get over it.underoath has talent.nofx sounds like a guys with a bunch of god damn banjos and bad hygiene.

Hi Kids,

The difference is plain to see. NOFX strives to make you hate them and open your mind. They love their fans. Matter of fact, they love everybody more than you know. Melvin and Fat Mike are two of the greatest guys I've every had the pleasure to meet. They through no label between themselves and you. It is OK for those of you that have "expectations" to hate NOFX. You can only chose one label, and NOFX has chosen punk. How can you be more than one thing? NOFX is free, Underoath and all of you folks who have expectations for other people (why do you preach? NOFX pokes fun, yet you preach?) will forever be in prison. You are prisoners of yourself and you don't know it. Now take your flags and your Christianity, your Islamic beliefs and go back to the status quo of the last 2,000 years where you came. NOFX is on Warped Tour 2006 because after all this time they are still Avante Guarde. I mean, just their name along should send strong warning signals to those of us who are trying to change the world by expecting nothing from anybody except ourselves (not God, not anyone). They are wrong to be Christian, but I now Mike and he doesn't hate them for that, he is only trying to change the world. Change that will never come while we believe that Jesus performed miracles because he did not. When you die you are gone and while your here you can continue the madness of Vlad the Impaler or you can change the world. NOFX is changing the world. Look at the hate the Christians, Muslims, Americans, Europeans, Africans, Koreans, Chinese, Indians, Arabs, Caucasians, and what not are bringing to the world? We have infinity of resource and land in space, the atmosphere of Mars is ready to grow anything you want with a bit of magnetism to block the gamma rays and a dash of warmth to unfreeze the ice in the core to grow all the Indigo you please. Titan is an aquarium ready to happen. If there is a God, he wants you to spread life and he speaks through me.

I wish the guys in Underoath freedom and liberty. Break your oath. You have everything you need, you should not have to evolve for 15 billion years from nanobes caused by magnetism to microbes that can carry DNA to homo sapien sapien and then keep a promise to the status quo. There are two paths. May I suggest the one least traveled? Someone said that will make all the difference and it will. Dont lower you expectaions for others. Throw them away.

Yet you all judge NOFX. You judge them good and you judge them bad. They don't care because they are free. Enjoy them if you do, don't if you don't. They are part of the small minority of us who will change the world while the seratonine in your heads is like the H2O on Mars if you don't respect and appreciate them. Same like I respect and appreciate all artists. Good luck Underoath, it is good you took some time off. There is more than one good book to read.

Vlad

i see alot of people useing the term "punk" while refering to the warped tour and or nofx, maybe im missing something here... i payed 30 bucks to get in the door, then was hit with more corperate advertising than i felt was necessary, i had to politly refuse the trojan people sampling their product to young teens, say no thanks to the PETA morons, and listen to nofx campaign for the democratic party, then spend 7 bucks for a crappy hot dog........there was a point in my life were i called myself punk, then i grew up and admited that i was just another demographic. at that point i truly began to not give a damn what people thought of me...i stopped painting my nails, i started wearing nice clothes that were comfortable, even if they had a label, as long as i could afford them, and worst of all i started to like my natural hair color. as far as im concerned "punks" are insecure little kids with daddy issues, i know that because i was one.

not only do both of these bands suck, but all punk became a parity of itself before it even started. emo, screamo and rap/metal all follow the same concept--write sh** three chord songs and cry about nothing. Most of them suck live because they actually manage to sound worse than on the record. f*** em all, TRUE metal is all that matters anyway.

Remember, no matter your tastes there is always something more extreme and more "metal" than whatever you listen to. Unless you listen to Gorgoroth exclusively, which, in that case, I have no argument...maybe they should tour with Underoath next time out.

Everyone has insecurities, and second dont stereotype people just becasue u listened to dookie back in the day and taught that made u a punker. Dressing like a punk obviously doesnt make u one and it doesnt mean u still cant enjoy the music if u dont dress like one. And why the f*** does this site even cover CRAP like Underoath, their not Undergroung and their definitely not Metal. Same goes for NOFX. This Site is call METALUNDERGROUND. I mean sh** they seriously need to change the name to Heavymusic.com that way they dont mislead people into coming to this site to get news on METAL.
