Episode 13 - Aaron Gillespie (Underoath, The Almost)

On part 2 of the "two-part Underoath mini-series", Shane speaks with Aaron Gillespie, drummer and clean vocalist from 1997-2010. Aaron talks about his reasons for leaving the band ("I was mentally unhealthy, I was miserable in my own skin"), his now defunct side project The Almost ("I put a bullet in it before it got bad"), the success of Underoath ("We wanted to be like Jimmy Eat World, but heavy), and gearing up to get back behind the kit playing drums and singing on the reunion tour ("I've gotta re-figure out how the hell I'm gonna do this"). He also talks about his current gig playing drums for Paramore.
