Out of the Badlands is a mix of old and new. Writing this album was a therapeutic release for Gillespie who recently went through a divorce earlier this year. He says, “This is the healing process, this record, and the making of it pulled me through”. With refreshed versions of the Underoath classics like “A Boy Brushed Red Living In Black and White” and “Reinventing Your Exit”, The Almost fan-favorites including “Say This Sooner” and “Southern Weather”, covers of “Where The Streets Have No Name” by U2 and “Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Rait, as well as new original tracks, including “Raspberry Layer Cake“, which was released by Gillespie last year, the acoustic album is raw and has something for everyone.
Aaron Gillespie’s musical path began at age 14 when he co-founded Underoath. After nearly two decades, and over 10 albums released with Underoath, The Almost and as a solo artist, Gillespie is ready to begin a new era of his career with the release of Out of the Badlands.
