Miss live shows? So do Underoath, and the metalcore veterans are doing something about it. Today (July 7th) the Floridian band announced “Underoath: Observatory,” an innovative livestream concert series that will see the group playing not one, not two but three classic albums in full: the Grammy-nominated Lost in the Sound of Separation and the gold-certified Define the Great Line and They’re Only Chasing Safety. Underoath will play the trio of shows over successive July Fridays at 8 p.m. ET, broadcasting from a secret location and utilizing a “groundbreaking” new stage design employing a full touring production exclusively built for the performances. See the full schedule below:
Friday, July 17th: Lost in the Sound of Separation
Friday, July 24th: Define the Great Line
Friday, July 31st: They’re Only Chasing Safety
“We’ve always been a live band so this is a big deal for us,” Underoath said of the livestream series in a joint statement. ‘We’ve never attempted something of this scope so tackling it has been a big undertaking, but also exciting. It’s a different arena, for sure, but I think this will be something that changes how we approach our live shows from here on out. We can’t wait to see what happens … We’ll do it live.”
In addition to planning the shows, Underoath have also reissued Lost in the Sound of Separation, Define the Great Line and They’re Only Chasing Safety on vinyl, and they have exclusive merch drops planned, as well. Tickets for each livestream are available now.
