Underoath Not Breaking Up, Dismisses Rumors

After remaining relatively silent since the dropped off the Warped tour in in late July, Underoath has finally made a cryptic statement about their status as a band and some of the various rumours that surfaced in the aftermath. One of the more popular rumours was the NOFX's Fat Mike had somehow tormented the band to such an extent that the band had left the tour, one that Mike quickly refuted.

Instead, the band left this brief statement:

"Don't belive the rumors, Underoath did not break up, no one has been kicked out or quit or in rehab or any other silly places people are talking about. The dudes are getting ready to do their Canadian tour and then Taste of Choas international and then will do a headline tour in the US after that."

The wildly popular Christian metalcore act is supporting their 2006 full length, Define the Great Line.

son of a b****. I hate underoath!!! I would love it if they broke up.

P.S. - is underoath that well known around the country? cause I live in tampa and they're from here. but it seems like they're just some local band not some huge well known band like Marilyn Manson or Cannibal Corpse(both being from Tampa)

Underoath is good and all the satanists who hate then should get harpooned in the a$$ by satan. If you heard them without even knowing that they were a Christian band would you really think iit sounds all that Christian. Besides their music kicks ass

underoath is the best. and yes they are metalcore, or atleast their new stuff is.

and if you don't like them, you dont have to say things like "This sucks! Why can't they do us a favor and stop playing?!?! Sucks the rumors aren't true!"

does that make you feel good? cuz people who actually like underoath dont.

and for you sons of b****es who say they are emo, you are probably a dumbass freshman or something. panic! at the disco is emo. cute is what we aim for is emo.

saying underoath is emo is like saying you guys have lives.

NOFX is one of the greatest punk bands to ever live. Fat Mike is the man, and I'm sure Underoath didn't leave because he was making fun of them...

Have any of you thats been bashing on Underoath ever listened to them? Their new cd is fantastic. I thought they would put something soft out again, but thank God they proved me wrong and went back to making the heavy goodness. Check out their old EP's if you want to hear just blazing speed and "originality". Whether they are Christian or not, why would you judge. I'm Christian, but I love Cradle of Filth. You can like music, and disagree with what they stand for.

Ok, all u haters out there need to keep ur opinions to urselves. UNDEROATH IS NOT EMO!!!!!!!!! Speaking for all christians, such as them, being emo goes against the bible and is promoted by the devil, meaning Underoath wouldn't be Christian if they were emo. Duh. Think about it u fools!!!!! They can play beeter than u all can anyways!!!! And Cannibal Corpse? U Thin Cannibal Corpse is good???? UnderOath used to be heavier and more Black Metal sounding than them, but Dallas quit so they had to change things up a bit, but their current sound is good, and they have great lyrics. Cannibal Corpse writes all there songs while they hit the John everyday and they recall what they had for dinner the other night and put it into words and call it a song, but u can't tell cause u can't understand them. Seriously, who wants to listen to a band that sings about Dissembouing Children and Making People Suffer??? Oh well, they will all burn in hell one day anyway, while Underoath can rock for eternity. Death Metal is lame. Thrash is the stuff. Tourniquet, Extol, Kekal, Becoming The Archetype, and With Faith Or Flames arer the best bands ever. Enough said. Underoath is awesome also. They prove that u don't have to be metal to make good music. All u haters just shove it.

Dude, Black Metal is a genre, Not a way of life. You can sound like a Black Metal band, but u don't have to be satanists, it is just the way they sounded. They were good then, and they still are now.

LLT-- emo's just a genre too, not a way of life. it doesnt matter what they believe in, its about the music they write. if they write emo than their f***ing emo, if they write thrash their thrash. my point was that black metal generally tends to give homage to satan...blah blah blah. which is pretty anti-christian. i never said that you had to be a satanist to write black metal (which according to venom, black metal is about drugs, sex, rebellion, etc. etc., and satan worshipping "black metal" is just another form of death metal). but if underoath only followed their good upstanding christian faith in music, they probably wouldnt be satanic black metal.
