Fresh off an electrifying performance at the Aftershock Festival in the US over the weekend, where singer Spencer Chamberlain performed while still nursing a still-healing broken foot that he sustained during the band’s previous appearance at Riot Fest, Underoath have released the cinematic and thematically arresting video for “ihateit.”

“The “ihateit” video is a glimpse into what it’s like to feel alienated, to need something you shouldn’t need, to feel trapped and isolated and to feel like you have to keep returning to that place to find solace, it’s a vicious cycle,” said Underoath’s Aaron Gillespie.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
