- Facebook, Underoath
Kicking off in Austin before making its way across the country to wrap up in California, nu-metal dads Korn, ’90s alt rockers Alice in Chains and post-hardcore faves Underoath are all set to tour … together? Because that’s what the record industry thinks we need?
While at first it seems a bit confusing why all three acts, none of which sound anything alike, would undertake a joint trek across the nation, maybe it actually isn’t that weird if you think about it.
All three bands have had active mainstream radio play for at least a decade. All three bands have appealed to the same young angsty teen market — just in different decades. And all three acts were sort of the powerhouses of their own generation before eventually producing poppier music and lounging underneath the vague umbrella of “active-rock.”
If you’re still reading at this point, the tour hits Austin on Thursday, July 18, for a performance at the Austin 360 Amphitheater.
