The Scoop: Probably one of the most anticipated announcements in recent memory, Underoath has announced a one-off reunion at this year’s 2016 Self Help Music Festival. The reunited line-up is Aaron Gillespie, Grant Brandell, Spencer Chamberlain, Chris Dudley, James Smith and Tim McTague.
Gillespie, who parted ways with the band in 2009, talks about his decision to re-join his former band mates for the outing: “This will be fun, just pure fun. So excited to get real closure and give all the peeps the best night ever with my five oldest buddies.”
“I think after the storm settled, we immediately started being friends again. I’m not sure if the ‘stars aligned’ or what,” added Chamberlain. “All of our schedules lined up to where we could do this show. I couldn’t be more stoked!”
The Spin: If you haven’t already, I would head over to the Self Help Festival website and get a pre-sale ticket.
