Underøath announce new album Voyeurist, share choir-enhanced Hallelujah

    Underøath will release their ninth studio album, Voyeurist, in January, and they’re returning in some style with dramatic new choir-enhanced single Hallelujah.

    Voyeurist was self-produced by the band at guitarist Tim McTague’s own Feral Sound studio, located in an old Tampa church, with assistance from engineer JJ Revell. The sextet offered a first taste of the album in the form of lead-off single Damn Excuses last month.

    Speaking of the new single, Tim McTague says, “Hallelujah was one of those songs that kind of just came out. We had a rough outline in a day or so, and then we started building around it. When Aaron [Gillespie], had the choir idea, which is almost a nod to [2004 single] It’s Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door in a way, we wanted to make it really dark sounding.”

    “We ended up getting a handful of our homies and lady friends to come in and recorded the choir downstairs as a group. The song is about wrestling with everything – faith, life and so on. It’s interesting wrestling with these intense subjects while sitting in a church, and having their support to be honest and transparent was amazing.”
