The Union Underground have announced they will head out on the ‘Back To The 2000s Tour‘ in early 2024 with SOil, Ra, and Flaw in tow. The tour will find each band performing material from their early days.
The press release for the tour stated:
‘The ‘Back To The 2000’s Tour‘ features the return of Texas heavy weights The Union Underground, along with Chicago based SOiL and very special guests RA and Flaw. The tour launches in March 2024 and will feature each band playing exclusive material from their most popular albums that were released in the early 2000’s.
The Union Underground will perform selections from the hit debut ‘An Education In Rebellion‘. SOiL will perform songs from their sophomore breakthrough album ‘Scars‘. RA will play material from the album ‘From One‘, and Flaw will perform songs from their debut album ‘Through The Eyes‘.
The premise of this tour is to bring fans back to the days when festivals like Ozzfest gave new bands a chance to break through to the masses when the Nu Metal scene was thriving. Each band on the tour not only had massive hit songs at the time, but had also toured together and joined forces to create a massive heavy music scene.
According to The Union Underground frontman Bryan Scott: ‘I’m looking forward to re-introducing the world to ‘An Education In Rebellion‘, which in my clearly biased opinion, is a fantastic, timeless album! The continued love and support from Union Underground fans over the years has been overwhelming, and that devotion is exactly what has inspired the new music on the forthcoming album.
Make no mistake, this is not a nostalgia tour. It’s the launch of a new chapter for the band and an opportunity for new generations of music lovers to discover us. And our longtime friends in SOiL are the perfect partners in crime for the experience! We will perform ‘AEIR‘ in its entirety, Across The Nation and a couple of unreleased songs from the new album. Let’s Get It On!’
SOiL bassist Tim King remarks: ‘Bryan Scott and I came up with this idea quite some time ago. I’m so happy we were able to bring all these bands together for what is sure to be a great re-introduction to this genre of music.
The first tour SOiL did on the ‘Scars‘ album was with The Union Underground in 2001. Here we are over 20 years later doing it again. It just proves that great bands can last the test of time’
