Der Gitarrist James Smith, ein langjähriges Mitglied von Underoath, teilte die News von seinem Ausstieg aus der Band nach Jahren. In einem Statement drückt Smith seine Traurigkeit und Dankbarkeit seitens der Fans, die die Gruppe seit Jahren unterstützen, aus.
„After 20 years of music and friendship, I was informed that I’m no longer a member of Underoath. This saddens me to say, but unfortunately is where we have ended up. I appreciate everyone who, at any moment in their lives, have felt inspired, accepted, comforted, and energized by the music we created and the shows we performed together. It has been my honor and privilege to be a part of your lives in that way though we may have never met or shared our stories face to face. Your dedicated, grace, and love for this band have allowed us to exist this long. The memories I have from this ride are more than anyone could ever expect in a lifetime, and I genuinely thank you all for being a part of it.“
