Underoath are back for another round of shows next spring. The group just announced a 2023 headline run that will include support from special guests Periphery and Loathe, making it one of the must-see bills of the early calendar year.

The tour comes as the band are winding down support of their early 2022 release Voyeurist and starting to look ahead to new music. “We’re working on new music (as always). Some songs are done. Some are close. Some have just gotten started… but we wanted to find a way to bring you inside that creative process,” Underoath shares. “At every VIP meet & greet on the Blind Obedience tour, we’re going to be having a listening party of unreleased music we’re currently working on (in various stages of completion) as well as never before heard demos of songs you know well. You’ll get a taste of what’s to come as well as see how far songs you already love had to come to get to your ears. We think this is going to be rad for us *and* you because if one of our favorite band was doing it, we’d jump on it (which is always our mindset going into this sort of thing).”

As previously stated, Underoath will be joined on the run by Periphery, who recently revealed that they've completed their next album and details on that release should be coming soon. Loathe, meanwhile, are currently writing for the follow-up to 2021's The Things They Believe album.

The 24-city tour launches March 3 in Silver Spring, Md., crossing the country, then circling back to an April 2 finale in Nashville. All cities, dates and venues can be viewed below. Tickets for the run will go on sale this Friday (Dec. 16) at 10AM local time via the band's website. You can also take part in a special Citi cardmember pre-sale through the Citi Entertainment program starting today (Dec. 13) at 11AM ET through Thursday (Dec. 15) at 10PM local time. As for those special VIP packages with the demo listening parties, head on over to the band's website for more details.
