Underoath are back with another new single. Back in March, the metalcore vets released a riotous new song called "Let Go" that was their first piece of new music since 2022's Voyeurist LP. Today (June 30th), they're back with a much different-sounding track called "Lifeline (Drowning)."
Throughout their long career, Underoath have flipped between several different sounds, some heavier and some catchier than others. However, "Lifeline (Drowning)" might be one of the most overtly melodic tunes they've ever written, with a triumphant chorus that Spencer Chamberlain and Aaron Gillespie take turns belting.
It still sounds like Underoath, but it's different, too. Listen above via YouTube.
"'Lifeline (Drowning)' is a cry for help," the band said. "I feel like we've all been there, be it as simple as miscommunication or a full on toxic relationship — that very feeling that you cannot tread water like this any longer or you may end up drowning.
"We wanted to create a song centered around the melody that could still hold the energy of a full-blown heavy song."
