"Sunburnt" is one of two new songs recorded by UNDERØATH with longtime producer Matt Goldman for release on the band's career retrospective album, "Anthology 1999-2013", available November 6 on Solid State Records. Together with final new track "Unsound", "Sunburnt" is a worthy addition to the career-spanning collection, which includes fan favorites culled from the band's 1999 debut, "Act Of Depression", through the instant classics on 2010's "Ø (Disambiguation)".
Due to unexpectedly high demand and in the midst of several rapid sell-outs, UNDERØATH's previously announced farewell tour has been expanded to include additional dates, with several of the tour's shows to be moved to higher capacity venues. Among the dates added are a January 13 stop at Worcester, Massachusetts' The Palladium and an additional night at New York City's Irving Plaza. Changes of venue have taken place in Toronto, Detroit and St. Petersburg, allowing for the accommodation of additional fans seeking to watch the powerhouse live act one final time. Shows in five of the tour's ten cities have already sold out.
The group's unanticipated decision to disband sent shockwaves through social media networks, with UNDERØATH becoming a worldwide trending topic on Twitter as countless fans shared their thoughts on the influential band and the impact its music had on their lives.
One of hard rock's biggest success stories, UNDERØATH leaves a remarkable legacy that includes seven acclaimed albums — chief among them gold-certified releases "They're Only Chasing Safety" and "Define The Great Line" — multiple Grammy nominations, tours of six continents and over 1.3 million records sold.
