Ever since Florida-based post-hardcore sextet Underoath dropped off Warped Tour earlier this summer citing needing “immediate time to focus on our friendship,” rumors have flown that certain band members will be leaving the band, or that the band might actually even be breaking up. AP is incredibly happy to tell you that neither of those two scenarios are the case: The band are back at full speed, according to their manager, Randy Nichols, who wrote us earlier tonight.
“I thought you might be curious to know that Underoath did not break up [and] no one has quit or left the band,” says Nichols. “[They] are about to get back on the road again and do all their touring for the year, and next year, too.”
In the immediate future, this means the band’s Canadian tour with Silverstein and Moneen is still on, as well as their slot on this fall’s Taste Of Chaos International tour alongside Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, Anti-Flag and others. No touring plans for 2007 have been announced yet, but when they are, we’ll bring them to you.
