Having wrapped a European tour last month, Underoath will begin recording their new as-yet-untitled album, the follow-up to their acclaimed disc Lost In The Sound Of Separation (Tooth & Nail/Solid State) on May 24.

For the new album, set for release in the late fall, the group will team with Matt Goldman (who co-produced the band's Lost In The Sound of Separation and Define The Great Line albums) and Jeremy SH Griffith to produce.

In other news, lead vocalist Spencer Chamberlain, guitarist Tim Mctague, bassist Grant Brandell, keyboardist Christopher Dudley, and guitarist James Smith have announced that drummer Daniel Davison (ex Norma Jean) will be joining on drums for the writing and the recording of the new album as well as the forthcoming tour. The group will head out this summer for a three-week trek on the "Cool Tour" with As I Lay Dying, Between The Buried And Me, blessthefall, The Acacia Strain, Architects, Cancer Bats and War Of Ages.

Underoath - whose last four albums have combined sales well in excess of one million copies - released Lost In The Sound Of Separation on Seattle indie Tooth & Nail/Solid State in 2008. The disc marked the top rock debut for the week and entered the Billboard Top 200 Album chart at #8, #1 on the Top Christian albums chart and #5 on the Top Digital albums chart. The band continue to garner new fans and widespread critical acclaim for Lost In The Sound Of Separation as well as their electrifying live performances.

    i couldn't suggest another drummer for underoath instead of davison... and i'm sure that tim has a great voice :-"
    You know, i hope this brings underoath to a much darker chapter of their careers. I always loved spencers clean vocals and Davison is the man, i've always been more of a norma jean fan then underoath anyways so this could be the change i think they needed
    .. oh, and i'm pretty sure that the new album will be released in summer.
    I dont know if i can get back into them without Aaron, it wasnt just his drumming, singing, or writing. When you met him he was such a huge spirit and a great guy and the whole reason i got into Underoath. Im gonna try but it's gonna be wierd
