Underoath is an American Rock band based in Tampa, Florida; they are currently signed to Tooth & Nail/Solid State Records. Though the band's musical style has changed substantially since its inception in 1998, it may be said that currently the sextet plays a brand of hard music which combines elements of post-hardcore, emo, and metalcore. The band's members are all Christians and the band's lyrics occasionally speak of their faith, though not with as great regularity as when the band first started.br/>
 They're Only Chasing Safety
During the early months of 2004, the band hit the studio again with Wisner to record their first album with Spencer Chamberlain on vocals and their second record for Solid State. They're Only Chasing Safety proved to be a breakout success for the band, going on to sell about 350,000 copies to date. Far more melodic than past efforts, Underoath moved even further away from their metal roots; drummer Gillespie arguably made as much of an impact with his singing on the record as Chamberlain did with his screaming. "Reinventing Your Exit" and "It's Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door" were the album's singles; both songs spawned music videos that received airplay on MTV2 and Fuse.
They're Only Chasing Safety debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and later charted well into the Billboard 200. Following the release of the album, the band played a number of Warped Tour dates. In the Spring of 2005 the band was asked to participate on the inaugural Taste of Chaos tour. Shortly after the tour, the band embarked on its first headlining tour. The band premired two brand-new songs during the length of the tour.
The band landed on the cover of Alternative Press magazine for the first time in September of 2005, and in October of 2005, They're Only Chasing Safety was re-released in a two-disc set with four unreleased songs, new artwork by Converge's Jacob Bannon, and a DVD with over two hours worth of footage of the band touring in support of the album.
 Define the Great Line
Underoath entered the studio in January 2006 to record their fifth album. Matt Goldman, a founding member of Blue Man Group, and Adam Dutkiewicz, guitarist for Killswitch Engage, worked with the band in producing the album, which would come to be titled Define the Great Line. The album combined the intricate melodies of They're Only Chasing Safety with a partial return to the band's metalcore roots.
An unfinished version of the album was leaked onto BitTorrent websites and P2P services months before the release date. Members of the band released a statement saying that the leaked version was an unmixed & unmastered, raw copy of the album which lacked certain elements and the finished product would sound much different.
The band flew to Sweden in the spring of 2006 to make videos for the new songs "In Regards to Myself" and "Writing on the Walls"; the latter was chosen as the lead single for the album and was later nominated for the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Short Form Music Video. When Define the Great Line released on June 20, 2006, it sold 98,000 copies in its first week and made it's dbut on the Billboard 200 Chart at #2 , the highest debut for a Christian album since 1997 . In its first four weeks on the chart, it stayed in the top 50. It debuted at #1 on the Christian, Christian/Gospel, and Rock charts.
With the dbut of "Define the Great Line", Underoath simultaneously released a special edition version of the album featuring special artwork and a DVD that includes another behind-the-scenes movie and a "making of" video.
Define the Great Line was certified Gold by the RIAA on November 11, 2006, representing 500,000 shipped units of the album. It is the first album in Solid State history to reach that distinction.
The band toured extensively throughout Europe, Australia, and Asia in the fall of 2006 and is scheduled to tour with Taking Back Sunday and Armor for Sleep from February to April in 2007.
