Underoath speak about the departure of Aaron Gillespie

In a recent interview, Underoath‘s Chris Dudley spoke out about the departure of former drummer Aaron Gillespie. This is what he had to say,

“It was definitely a long time coming. Obviously, we had been in a band with him forever, but musically it had become increasingly harder to write with him. As a lot of people know, he has pop-rock tendencies and that was not where we were going with the music. There was that, but there were personal things and what not. He’s not going to leave the band because he does not like a song or something. He is doing another solo record right now. All in all, Aaron leaving was really beneficial for everyone involved. I was talking to him the other day and he said he was saying that he was working on his record and everything. It is so awesome because for a long time it had been—in a lot of ways—the five of us on one page and then him on another musically and in other ways. With him leaving, he is able to write the music he wants to write and work on his own, which he wanted to do for a long time. For us, it was awesome because when Daniel joined, he was on the exact same page as we are, as a person and musically. Aaron actually heard the record a little bit ago and he thought it was awesome and could not believe we had done it. I’m sure when his stuff comes out it is going to be awesome. All in all, for everyone, it was really good.”

Interview: Fat Mike explains why he loves to pick on Underoath

MySpace actually did a pretty entertaining interview/article about the semi-feud between NOFX front-man Fat Mike and Christian metalcore band Underoath that took place on the 2006 Warped Tour.  The two bands couldn’t be more different in their beliefs and we all know how outspoken Fat Mike is so it’s not hard to imagine Fat Mike raining hell down on his Christian contemporaries from his own version of a pulpit – a Warped Tour stage.

You can check out a video of Fat Mike ripping into Underoath right here and read the full article on MySpace here.

Fast forward- all the rad dudes you know and love joined this band and we made music together, and i Believe with my all that God used it (and still does and will) to touch alot of people. I feel so blessed to have been a part of this, it has been triple what i ever imagined or thought could happen,and some of the most fun times of my life. Truth be told, things change, people change, lives rearrange. My time here in this band is up. I love it, the people the traveling. It is just time for me to go. I will still be doing the almost, still giving drum lessons, still hanging with you when I was fourteen i was asked to join a band called’ “underoath” this was long before any of the members you know now were here. We began as a sort of progressive-metalish type band. I just knew i was young and had an incredible opportunity to play as fast as i could, which was super fun.”

Underoath part ways with drummer/vocalist Aaron Gillespie

underoath4Metalcore act Underoath have [amicably] parted ways with drummer & clean vocalist Aaron Gillespie. The news comes amidst the band’s European tour.

“We are taking this opportunity to sadly inform you the six of us have decided at the end of the current European tour, Aaron will no longer be playing in Underoath. This was not a decision made in haste but a thought out and prayed upon group agreement. It in no way effects any of the shows left on this tour. They will still be our best efforts and enjoyable experiences for all. For the future, Aaron will be pursuing other musical and ministry endeavors. As for the rest of us we will continue to work hard on the new Underoath record. We appreciate the love and support from everyone in the past and hope that all of us will continue to receive your support on our future paths. We love you guys…
Tim, Grant, Aaron, James, Chris, and Spencer….”
