Metal innovators, Underoath, have announced they will be performing their highly anticipated new record Voyeurist in its entirety via their “Digital Ghost” cinematic concert, in partnership with Moment House. The Digital Ghost event will continue to push further down the path the band blazed in the digital performance space last year with their groundbreaking “Observatory” event.

This time around, “Digital Ghost” offers something entirely different – a chance to be part of a communal moment built around Underoath music that nobody has ever heard before. Voyeurist is arguably the most ambitious record of the band’s career, and it’s only fitting that the first time fans hear it will be during this equally ambitious event. Get your tickets now for Digital Ghost through Moment House and secure your spot in witnessing a pivotal moment in Underoath history.

Asia + Australia + New Zealand: Saturday, December 4th – 9am GMT
UK + Europe + Africa: Saturday, December 4th – 6pm GMT

Speaking about “Digital Ghost”, Tim McTague of Underoath said: “When we started conceptualising the Voyeurist event, we knew that we wanted to do something different than a traditional live stream. We have done three of them and, coming back a year after Observatory, we knew we didn’t want to just repeat the cycle. One of the biggest goals was the idea of blending narrative with the visuals. Threading the needle on a live performance while adding in cinematic elements was a big part of “Digital Ghost”. The goal of Observatory was never to re-create a static live performance, and I think “Digital Ghost” is an extension of that thought. In the end, “Digital Ghost” is an attempt to push boundaries as a band and set a new bar for what virtual live experiences can be. With everything we do, there is a lot of risk and some lofty goals. It’s pretty special to conceptualise these projects and then watch them form in real-time, especially when you have a finite amount of time and resources.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with Underoath for their “Digital Ghost” cinematic concert ahead of the release of their new album,” said Moment House co-founder and CEO Arjun Mehta. “The band have masterfully embraced this powerful new medium and we can’t wait to help bring their remarkable creative vision to life with their fans around the world.”

Over the past few months, Underoath have continued to excite fans with a cryptic release plan that has included four singles from Voyeurist to date. Each track revealed has been accompanied by a deeper glance into the meaning behind the new record, which functions more as a multimedia art project than a standard album campaign. At the heart of this release is the immersive website, voyeurist.io, where visitors are able to peer in on other fans, as well as the band, begging the question of whether or not what they’re witnessing is happening in real-time or is something pre-recorded. This serves as a microcosm of the overall effect that a digital existence has on us all and provides some insight into the concept of “digital ghosts” that is essential to the meaning behind the record.

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.
