UNDERØATH Land On Billboard Chart With Erase Me Album
April 16, 2018, 10 months ago
Underøath released their sixth album, Erase Me, on April 6th via Fearless Records. The album has debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart.
“When we decided to make a new album, we didn’t know what it would sound like, what the response would be or exactly who’d be interested. Finding out we have the #4 album in the country is just insanity,” said the band in a joint statement. “The response has been more than we could have hoped for and we’re still processing it all. In the streaming age we’re in, when money is spent on an album, we know it’s a conscious effort to support and we don’t take that for granted. Incredibly grateful today. Enjoy Erase Me. Dig in. Play it loud. 2018 is just getting started.”
“We challenged our creative boundaries in the roll out of this incredible album, to create a campaign as defining and defiant as the music," explained Jenny Reader, Vice President of Marketing and Project Management for Fearless Records. "We are so proud to be a part of this new era for a seminal band, with the ability to now reach new audiences, redefining what the genre of rock is capable of. This is just the beginning.”
Reader and Underøath manager Randy Nichols spearheaded the viral marketing campaign behind Erase Me, which included hand-scrawled CDs with the words “Erase Me” arriving at fan’s homes prior to the album announcement, a cleverly disguised website countdown clock and mysterious billboards popping up nationwide.
Erase Me was written and recorded over the summer of 2017 with producer Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco, 3OH!3) and mixed by Ken Andrews (Failure, Jimmy Eat World). Get the album at retailers and digital service providers.
