In a match made in folk-punk heaven, Hot Water Music’s Chuck Ragan, Avail’s Tim Barry and Lucero’s Ben Nichols will embark on The Revival Tour this fall, a series of shows that will see all three artists playing solo sets as well as performing on each other’s material.
Underoath has posted an update from the studio. Check it out below. The bands new live CD/DVD, Survive Kaleidoscope, can be pre-ordered here.
Hey everyone! It’s Tim from Underoath. We’re finally out of the studio and the stuff is coming along great! We mix in about 2 weeks and I can’t wait to hear the finished product!!! I wanted to let you all know that we finally have the live cd/dvd project that we’ve been working on since our headlining tour at the end of last year called ‘Survive Kaleidoscope’ finally done! As many of you know, we shot an entire live set at the Electric Factory in Philly. Our friends in Art/Industry shot it and ADG’s Ryan Gardner did all the editing, and all the audio was mixed by our good friend and producer ADAM D., and it turned out great! We also recorded our sets every nightof the tour mostly, and we are releasing a 12 song live cd from random cities on the tour so there very well may be a song that you actually saw live on there…if you listen closely you may hear you and your friends screaming..hah. Our friend Beau from Saosin mixed the live discand he couldn’t have done a a better job. I know some of you have been keeping up with the documentary portion of the project at underoathmovie.com and unfortunately due to differences in opinion as a band on the content and pacing, we’ve decided to hold back the documentary portion of ‘Survive’. The quality of everything we do is at the forefront of our thinking on this and I speak for all of us in UO when I say that we will continue working on the film throughout the year and hopefully will be able to get it out to you guys at little to no cost around the time of our new record release in the fall. I apologize for all of you who have supported us and this film from day 1 and I assure you something will come out somewhere…even if we have to put it online for free. With that said, I am proud to finally announce the official Underoath pre-order for our Live DVD/CD package ‘Survive Kaleidoscope’ officiallyreleasing 5/27/08. The Live DVD is at the Electric Factory in Philly andcomes loaded with a full 14 song set. It includes the entire Define The Great Line track listing as well as some of our favorites from They’re Only Chasing Safety. More information on the entire package is available here . We have a pretty killer pre-order going on at the UO store rightnow! You can be one of the first to order it direct from us! Everywhere else is pre-ordering it right now at $20-23. You can get it at our store for the next month up until street date for $15! We also had our friend Justin Nelson from Verdure Studio hand draw and stencil a custom UO shirt that is ONLYavailable at UO’s ‘Survive Kaleidoscope’ pre-order, and it’s only andextra $10! There will be an extremely limited run of these and when the pre-order is done…so will the shirt. Lastly we have 500 autographed posters that will be packaged with the Verdure custom shirt and ‘SurviveKaleidoscope’ for $30 while supplies last. I know this project is takinga different shape than originally intended but if you’re into livedisc’s and live dvd’s this is for you!!!!!!Be sure to check out ADG (the new UO band run webstore) for more info specials and coupon codes on UO andVerdure Studio. Until we have an up and running site this is the place to be for all things UO!!! Jay, Ryan and I will be frequenting the site to keep you all in the loop. Be well friends and be blessed.
