The Tampa metalcore band will break up following a 2013 tour

Underoath has announced that they disband following a 2013 farewell tour. After 15 years and 1.3 million record sales later, the Tampa metalcore outfit has decided to call it quits. News of Underoath’s disbanding comes via the group’s web page.

“It’s sad to say that we feel like it’s time to close this chapter, but we have never seen things more clearly,” says Underoath vocalist Spencer Chamberlain. “These have been the best years of my entire life, and I owe that to every single person who ever supported this band along the way. This wasn’t a quick decision by any means. It’s just time for us to move on.”

As a last hurrah, Underoath will embark on a 2013 farewell tour and will release a compilation album spanning the years of their success. Underoath’s Anthology 1999-2013 will drop on Nov. 6 via the band’s Solid State Records and will include songs from all of the band’s albums. Expect to see tracks from the Underoath’s 1999 album Act of Depression through their 2010 record Ø (Disambiguation). Anthology 1999-2013 will also feature two newly recorded songs entitled “Sunburnt” and “Unsound.”

“Over the past decade or so of our lives, we have been able to live a dream traveling the world, playing music that excites us, and meeting more amazing people than we could have ever fathomed,” says Underoath keyboardist Chris Dudley. “This couldn’t be a more bittersweet moment for us. We have accomplished more, met more friends, seen more places and have just done more than we could have ever imagined, and we really wanted to just go out on the highest note possible.”

“That’s why we put together a group of great friends and musicians for what will be our final tour ever,” Dudley continues. “We are taking every moment of this tour as an opportunity to say goodbye to you all, as well as celebrate what has taken place over all these years. The love we have and the debt of gratitude that we owe to all of your is not to be measured in any way.”
