With slo/tide, Chamberlain bravely steps outside Underoath's heavier sound to explore the genres that have inspired him throughout his career.

The release marks a compelling new chapter in Chamberlain's career, highlighting the continued growth and depth of one of the music industry's most revered artists.
"'It Always Seemed Easier' is a track about my mental health. I seem to always put myself last in every facet of life, and eventually, even when I feel like I’m doing the right thing, it catches up to me. I feel like I’m worried so much about others and how they feel/feel about me I forget to check in on myself. This song is just a reminder to myself to take a second and breathe, even when I remember past scenarios where it was 'easier' to fix before. I just gotta keep pushing forward and try harder."
The song is a testament to Spencer Chamberlain's emotional journey and his commitment to personal well-being. slo/tide is an outlet for Chamberlain's diverse musical inspirations, demonstrating his range and depth as an artist beyond the bounds of genre.
