I am a music enthusiast with a deep love for the energy of crowded venues, loud music, & passionate fans. I have a diverse background that includes private security, talent buying, festival security planning, & media relations. I've also worked as a camera operator for various projects, including music videos featuring notable artists like Bernz, Tech N9ne, & Krizz Kaliko. Additionally, I am a camera operator for Full Moon Features, where I contribute to the production of horror movies.

In 2023, Underoath will be hitting the road with Periphery and Loathe. This tour is not just about Underoath showing fans some new music, but around the time that both Periphery and Loathe have new music out or well underway.

“We’re working on new music (as always),” said Underoath. “Some songs are done. Some are close. Some have just gotten started… but we wanted to find a way to bring you inside that creative process. At every VIP meet-and-greet on the ‘Blind Obedience’ tour, we’re going to be having a listening party of unreleased music we’re currently working on (in various stages of completion) as well as never-before-heard demos of songs you know well.

“You’ll get a taste of what’s to come as well as see how far songs you already love had to come to get to your ears. We think this is going to be rad for us and you because if one of our favorite band was doing it, we’d jump on it (which is always our mindset going into this sort of thing).”

A Little History On The Band Over The Years

Underoath is an American rock band from Tampa, Florida. It was founded in 1997 by lead vocalist Dallas Taylor and guitarist Luke Morton, followed by members from Tampa who include drummer Aaron Gillespie, clean vocalist and last remaining core member. Underoath’s current lineup consists of Gillespie, keyboardist Christopher Dudley, lead guitarist Timothy McTague, bassist Grant Brandell, lead vocalist Spencer Chamberlain, and rhythm guitarist James Smith. The band first identified as a Christian group but they have since distanced themselves from Christianity.

The band’s lineup started out with a few changes and shifted frequently during their early years. Taylor joined the group, recording Act of Depression, Cries of the Past, and The Changing of Times with it, and stayed with the group until 2003. Chamberlain replaced him as lead vocalist and remained for the most part when he left; this lineup has been stable since then. They then released They’re Only Chasing Safety and Define the Great Line, which reached gold certifications from the RIAA. These two albums became their most commercially successful releases and gave them mainstream status; they peaked at no. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart following Lost in the Sound of Separation. After Gillespie left in 2006 due to his departure with Underoath, he was replaced by Davison who formerly played drums for Norma Jean. Ø (Disambiguation) was released in 2010 and featured more prominent clean vocals from Chamberlain when Gillespie was absent. Upon announcing that Underoath would be disbanding after 2013, they played their final show on January 27th, 2013.

The band announced their reunion on August 17, 2015. Jeff Gillespie had returned, and they publicly abandoned the Christian musical approach that they had prior to the announcement. In 2016 the band played Self Help Fest to promote their new album, Erase Me. It would be their first in 8 years and only their second with Jeff; it was also the end of an 8 year hiatus for the group. Their next full-length was Voyeurist, which was released on January 18, 2022.
