Hailing from York, Pennsylvania, the Underwater have been on a steady rise since their inception in late 2001.
After a successful tour in 2002 with hardcore legends Zao, Unearth, Underoath and Dead Poetic, the band entered the studio to record their debut album entitled Bleed Me Blue (EP). The album was released nationally on Tribunal Records in early 2003, and then was later released in Europe on Lifeforce/Impression music in the late summer of 2003. In less than a years time the release had sold in excess of 6,000 copies, giving the Underwater the opportunity to land supporting gigs with Nickelback, Supergrass, Seether, and The Fire Theft to name a few.
The band completed several European headlining tours, during which they received massive support from fans as well as the media. The single "To Find You" received heavy rotation on many European radio stations, and even charted top 25 on stations in Switzerland and Austria.
In 2004 the band had a chance to work with famed producer David Bendeth (Hawthorne Heights, Imarobot, Breaking Benjamin). During that session they finished the tracks "Fallen One" and "Everyone".
2005 was the year that the band found themselves free from contractual obligations thus they released their second ep in 2 years entitled "Lungs". "Lungs" became the 1 seller at FYE / Coconuts.com in the localeyez section which led to retail distribution through FYE and Coconuts in PA, NJ, DE & WV, in addition to the prexisting distribution through all Record and Tape Traders in MD. In April 2006, The Underwater was named XM Radio artist of the week, adding to their radio success.
From 2006-2007, The Underwater has played numerous shows including shows with Live, Shinedown, Fuel, Trapt, Saliva, Quiet Drive, Dropping Daylight, Halestorm, City Sleeps and Lennon, among others. The forthcoming LP "Forces", recorded with David Bendeth, Warren Riker and Marshall Deasy and mastered by Ted Jensen, was released in May 2007.
