Define the Great Line is the fifth album by American metalcore band Underoath. The album was released in the United States on June 20th, 2006, debuting at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 charts and generating over 98 000 sales in its first week. [1] It is the first album by Underoath that was not produced by their usual producer, James Paul Wisner.

There is a limited edition version of the album featuring exclusive artwork and a DVD, which includes a short documentary on the making of the album and its artwork along with a short film about a man's encounter with a UFO.


Lyric content and style

Unlike their previous album, They're Only Chasing Safety, Define The Great Line was written by both Spencer Chamberlain (vocals) and Aaron Gillespie (drums). Chamberlain would write the lyrics he would sing and Gillespie would write the lyrics he would sing, and sometimes they would trade lyrics with each other. The lyrics in They're Only Chasing Safety were solely written by and about drummer Aaron Gillespie.

The track "Sálmarnir", is keyboardist Christopher Dudley's cousin reading Psalm 50:1-6 in Russian. In the background is a live recording of English, repeating verse two a second time after verse three (1, 2, 3, 2, 4, 5, 6), the track is a reflection of the band's strong Christian beliefs.[2] The song is produced by Chris Dudley's band, The Roman Carnival of 1510.
