Grab your 2022 calendars, kids! Metalcore favourites, Underoath, have today revealed they’ll be releasing their highly anticipated seventh album, Voyeurist, on January 14th. To celebrate, and keep us sane until next year, the band have shared anthemic new single ‘Halleluja’.
Guitarist, Tim McTague, summarises the track perfectly: “I think the song is one of the more powerful songs on the album for a myriad of reasons, but sharing a night of beers and stories with a handful of the people you love, unpacking a ton of heady concepts and recording a choir really put an exclamation point on the song for me. It’s dark, beautiful, haunting and heavy all at the same time. That’s what Underoath does best in my opinion.”

Voyeurist marks the first time in Underoath’s storied career that they took the recording process completely into their own hands. Doing so led to plenty of difficult conversations, but it also provided the ideal situation for artistic innovation.
As McTague continues “I’ve always wanted to record our own album. I think we just needed to get into a headspace personally that would allow criticism and critique to land in a productive and constructive way.” The result is the most collaborative album of Underoath’s career and, anchored in a profound respect for each other, one that left no stone unturned creatively. McTague adds again “We grew so much in real time and I think the record speaks to that growth and collaboration. I haven’t ever felt this attached to a project in my life.”
