Underoath at The Fillmore

Fun fact: Underoath started out as a Christian metalcore band back in the late 90s. While plenty has changed over more than two decades of work, including a roster of 15 musicians who have at various times been members, the Tampa-based band still delivers.

In honor of their ninth studio album, Voyeurist, Underoath hit the road on a 27-city North American tour. Originally, they were supposed to be accompanied by Every Time I Die. But unfortunately, the band broke up in between the time the tour was announced and Underoath was scheduled to hit the road. In their place, Spiritbox and Bad Omens joined the fun and helped set the stage for a wonderfully entertaining evening.

Frontman Spencer Chamberlain, lead guitarist Timothy McTague, bassist Grant Brandell, rhythm guitarist James Smith, drummer Aaron Gillespie and keyboardist Christopher Dudley used absolutely every inch of the stage during an action-packed 15 song set, which included a two-track encore.

By the time they broke into their current single, “Hallelujah,” bedlam had completely overtaken The Fillmore. The sellout crowd clearly fed off of the amazing energy reverberating from the stage and gave back everything they had.
