Underoath / Biography


Underoath (occasionally typeset as underOATH or UNDERØATH) is an American band originally formed on November 30, 1997 in Ocala, Florida, but since then, have re-located to Tampa, Florida, which was home to some of their newer members. The band’s line-up consists entirely of Christian members. They are currently signed with Solid State Records, a subsidiary of Tooth and Nail Records, and are the label’s most popular group.

After several line-up changes, Underøath no longer has any of the original band members. During the band’s early years, when they were fronted by former vocalist Dallas Taylor, Underøath displayed a more deathcore sound with their music, with the exception of clean vocals, and the usage of double-bass drums and breakdowns. With Taylor, they released Act of Depression, Cries of the Past, and The Changing of Times. Following his departure, Spencer Chamberlain became lead vocalist. The band then released They’re Only Chasing Safety and Define The Great Line, gaining a certified gold rating and the highest-charting Christian album on The Billboard 200 since 1997, respectively. These two albums have given them more mainstream and commercial success. They’re Only Chasing Safety and Define the Great Line took on a lighter, more mainstream sound compared to their albums with Taylor.
