    Underoath: Don’t Fix it if it Ain’t Broke

    Underoath: Don’t Fix it if it Ain’t Broke

    It was just over 1 year ago when we began this series and covered the formation of Tooth & Nail and the tiniest little trickle of house shows and Calvary Chapels and community centers organized by people like Billy Power.  Then we saw the rise of cornerstone with John Herrin as the scene had just begun to emerge.  So we've traveled quite a long way to get here, and today we reach the high watermark. It's a couple of decades of community building and talent compiling, large technological leaps, an exploding genre, a sharp and well oiled indie label, the perfect band (Underoath)at the perfect time and all of that backed and supercharged by multi billion dollar global cooperation….
     
    This episode covers Underoath's 2006 album, Define The Great Line, with guitarist Tim McTauge and features Brandon Ebel as well.

    Underoath: Kids From Florida

    Underoath: Kids From Florida

    Chapter 24
    There is no question that Underoath is the biggest Christian heavy band of our scene. They completely broke the ceiling of what was assumed was possible beyond our scene, but what are all the factors that go into a landmark success story like that of Underoath? In a sense, this podcast so far is a list and account of many of those factors, or maybe it's just "They’re Only Chasing Safety" was directly born out of the Tooth & Nail culture. It was a perfect wave that had been built by thousands of people collaborating and supporting one another and as they grew and gained momentum, the wave was ready to break, and Underaoth was the perfect band to harness its energy and break our scene wide open into the mainstream and become Tooth & Nail's biggest rock band to date.
    My favorite viewpoint for this story is that of Tim McTague's, who at that time was something like Underoath's quarterback. Not only is he a giant of an artist and musician, but at age 21, he took the responsibility to handle their business. As we have seen in this series, the biggest pitfalls are often managing the managers, agents, labels, lawyers, promoters, pressure from other bands, and fans, all of whom desperately want something from the band, and in Underoath's case, turn the intensity of all that up about 10x, starting with the release of "They're Only Chasing Safety."

    Labeled Special: Mike Hranica and Jeremy DePoyster of The Devil Wears Prada

    The Devil Wears Prada is the type of band that if you didn’t know any better, you might confuse them for a career-long Solid State artist, with good reason. They grew up as fans of the label, started a terrific band, did the  first decade and a half of their career on other labels, and now, at last, they are in fact a Solid State band. So there is plenty to discuss and listen to including their new and debut release on Solid State, "The Act" which came out in October.

    Beloved: Powerful and Fragile

    Beloved: Powerful and Fragile

    Chapter 23.2
    Not only was Josh Moore focused on his goal of becoming a musician from a very early age, but he was also recognizably good as an early teenager who eventually was noticed by older kids at his school who picked him up and made him their lead singer. Finishing high school by an alternative program, Josh is touring as Beloved's frontman at 18 years old, and by 21 that journey would be over and Josh would move in a different direction musically and personally.

    Beloved: One and Done

    Beloved: One and Done

    Chapter 23.1
    Beloved’s 2003 debut, "Failure On," is a legendary album in the Solid State Records catalog. They had so much in their favor: made a flawless debut record, had an incredibly promising trajectory, had all been friends since childhood, and described themselves as family, were respected in the scene that was exploding and supportive, and were a priority to the best record label in the Christian heavy music space in the middle of its most powerful moment.
    Dusty Redmond gives his point of view as to how after just a few tours, and amid the anticipation of the entire scene for their follow up record, the Beloved train was derailed. Since then, Beloved has existed in conversations in greenrooms, tour busses, and record industry people as a “what if” band. There were occasionally feint rumors of possible reunions, but alas, after nearly 15 years, most people have given up hope.
    You would think that it would take something extraordinary to stop the incredible momentum that Beloved had in 2004, but some things can be both powerful and fragile at the same time.

    Emery's "I'm Only a Man:" Certified Flop

    Emery's "I'm Only a Man:" Certified Flop

    Chapter 22
    The guys in Emery grew up as far from punk and underground culture as you could get. Not until their twenties did they even find out about this whole scene. But they made up for lost time, and thanks to the foundations laid by the earlier bands, the explosion of this new scene, and the peak of the Tooth & Nail merger with EMI, Emery rode a wave of success and got used to it a little too quickly.

Customer Reviews

bjponto ,

A run back through my teenage years

I love this podcast. Taking a behind the scenes tour with all my favorite bands in high school and realizing how lucky I was to be getting into the music scene at that time. I forgot about so much of this music and have been listening to it all over again. Thank you for making this podcast!

Emery Episode

If it makes you feel any better, I think “I’m Only a Man” is your best record front to back. It’s really incredible. One of my all time favorites.

wesley thomas johnson ,

Ehh

Well, it’s good occasionally. The show doesn’t seem to live up to its original premise. They never address anything remotely controversial. If there is a chance T&N might look a little bad from a topic, they don’t cover it. A show like this should be fully independent of the label.
