With today being a day to dress up and act like someone other than yourself, scene staples Underoath are taking full advantage by sharing a brand new collaboration with EDM producer Kayzo.
Joining forces for a track dubbed “Wasted Space,” the new single showcases Spencer Chamberlain and Aaron Gillespie’s well-known vocals on top of a synthy drum and bass loop.
Speaking on the new track, the Los Angeles-based DJ Kayzo said: “‘Wasted Space‘ is everything you wouldn’t expect from an electronic producer like myself and a legendary band such as Underoath. This is a head-on collision of sonic frequencies and sounds from different sides of the musical world. This is true experimentation in its rawest form.”
“When I was told of the opportunity to work with Underoath,” Kayzo added, “it brought me back to my hockey days prior to music. Their album They’re Only Chasing Safety was on heavy rotation for me during my athletic career. It was a perfect opportunity to put to test the idea I have been pushing forward of the blurring of worlds and sonic sounds of my youth in rock, pop punk and my love for electronic music.”
Sharing a similar enthusiasm for the collaboration, Underoath said in a shared statement: “Kayzo is super excited about music and this track and that’s why we are so so excited about it. It’s refreshing these days and in this time [to] see someone as excited as he is about music.”
