Underoath coming to the Yuengling Center in Tampa

Underoath's comeback is getting bigger than ever.

The (formerly) Christian metalcore band, one of the biggest acts ever to come out of Tampa Bay, broke up in 2013, reformed in 2016, and have been touring the world and playing to huge audiences ever since.

Now they're about to play their biggest hometown venue to date: The Yuengling Center.

Underoath will bring their Erase Me Tour to the former USF Sun Dome on Dec. 14, alongside The Plot In You, Dance Gavin Dance and at least one more band to be announced soon. It's the band's only show in Florida. Tickets, $26 and up, are on a presale now, going on sale to the general public on Friday. Click here for details.

In an interview this spring, singer Spencer Chamberlain said the band's breakup — which both culminated and ended with sold-out concerts at Jannus Live — was necessary for them to get back to the point where touring together made sense again.

"We needed that," he said. "We never thought we'd play again. We never thought, we never knew this would happen. But we are a family, we do love what we do, and we love each other. The most important thing to us is this band and each other. But we kind of needed to knock the building down to see what the lot looks like, when the smoke settles."

With a show at one of Tampa's largest arenas, it's proof that the future's looking pretty good.
