The Almost

The Almost is an emo solo project by Aaron Gillespie, drummer and occasional lead singer for Underoath, the Christian metalcore outfit he co-founded in 1998. Choosing to come out from behind the skins like his idol Dave Grohl before him, the Florida-bred Gillespie (who relocated to Salt Lake City in early 2007, following his marriage) wanted to explore a different outlet for his songwriting outside of his hard-hitting main gig. Written as Underoath were recording their critically acclaimed 2006 album, Define the Great Line (and recorded soon after that album's completion), the songs on the Almost's melodically inclined debut album, 2007's Southern Weather, are pointedly lacking Underoath's metalcore sound; the album's first single, "Say It Sooner," features a rhythm guitar track directly inspired by Johnny Cash's original musical partner, Luther Perkins, among others. Although Gillespie played all of the instruments on Southern Weather, which was jointly released by Tooth & Nail and Virgin, he formed a full-band version of the Almost for touring purposes. This incarnation featured Gillespie on vocals, guitarist Jay Vilardi, bassist Alex Aponte, and drummer Kenny Bozich. For their second album, Monster Monster, Gillespie opted for a more collaborative approach to the songwriting and brought the entire band into the studio with him, making the leap from solo project to actual band. The album was released in 2009 by Tooth & Nail. Fear Inside Our Bones, the group's third long-player, followed in 2013. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

Glad Aaron left underoath. He never did lose his christian roots behind him. Respect the man for being a Christ like person. This band is better than underoath. Love the drums singing and guitar work.

Apparently, according to Pandora, all emo means in music is that the lyrics have a deeper, subliminal meaning to them, which is why they classify bands like The Almost, The Classic Crime, Paramore, Anberlin, Relient K, and others in that same emo category.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Seriously, the almost is DA BEST. Some people complain about Aaron's "Whiney and raspy" voice.. Well they deserve to be murdered.
