Underoath frontman Spencer Chamberlain has released the first single with slo/tide, his newly launched solo project.
The track, titled "Neck High," is available now for digital download. Recorded with the alternative band Sir Sly, "Neck High" sounds very much not like Underoath, and that isn't an accident.
"I've been writing music since I was a kid, and 9 times out of 10 it's not the heavy music the world knows of me with Underoath," Chamberlain says, adding that slo/tide is meant to show "how the other side of my brain works."
"In ['Neck High'] I'm singing to myself in a hopeful tone about how no matter how bad things seem, I've always found a way to swim through it -- a theme that seems even more poignant now," he says.
You can look forward to more slo/tide music in the future, along with the forthcoming Underoath album Voyeurist, due out January 14. For an advance preview of the record, be sure to tune in to Underoath's upcoming streaming concert premiering December 3, during which they'll be playing Voyeurist in full.
