Underoath re-release three early albums
Florida Christian metal-core gents Underoath have announced the release of a special, triple-CD set, Play Your Old Stuff, featuring all the songs from three of their most popular albums: 2002’s The Changing of Times, 2004’s They’re Only Chasing Safety and 2006’s Define the Great Line. The assortment — which includes familiar metal tracks such as “The Best of Me,” “Reinventing Your Exit,” “The Changing of Time,” “The Impact of Reason,” “Letting Go of Tonight” and more — will be available in stores and online Oct. 18. If you’re a new fan and haven’t checked out the band’s earlier material, this is for you.
Per usual, Underoath opted for dark, slightly unnerving artwork for the album, which is pictured, left.
Underoath are currently on the road with metal bands Comeback Kid, the Chariot and This is Hell, and the jaunt runs through Oct. 20 in St. Petersburg, Fla. The band recently folded up an extensive summer tour, “The Illuminato[u]r,” with Times of Grace (featuring members of Killswitch Engage and Shadows Fall), Stray from the Path and LetLive.
Underoath’s most recent release, 2010’s Ø (Disambiguation), included 11 fierce, unified tracks, which scored the dudes a No. 23 spot on the Billboard 200 chart its first week out. A new, pummeling single from the album, “Paper Lung,” just dropped, and you can watch the video for the song, below.
