Hardcore rock crew Underoath have just dropped their new single ‘Rapture’.
The dark, pulsating track is taken from their upcoming sixth album Erase Me. And the tune already has Underoath fans talking!
This new Underoath single is 🔥🔥 #Rapture

Underoath Releases from Erase Me:
"On My Teeth" was a solid 10/10. Strong comeback for the Underoath we've been missing for all these years.
"Rapture" is like a 4/10. I don't like the adoption of the Sleepwave sound refitted to the Underoath brand. Super disappointing.

This new Underoath song is just a pile of garbage. Please don’t let the new cd be like rapture. Please.

The song is clearly receiving some mixed reviews from fans. But a majority of them feel the way that we do–it’s not a bad song by any means. It just doesn’t feel particularly Underoath-esque. (A lot of people have been making a comparison to Spencer Chamberlain‘s other band Sleepwave.)
The song’s punchy riffs, industrial flourishes, and energetic vocals have all the makings of a decent rock track, but this isn’t exactly what we were expecting from the band.
Is this their new musical direction? We’re not sure yet. I guess we’ll have to listen to Erase Me and find out.
