Underoath Announce Benefit Show For Lucas Starr (Ex-Oh, Sleeper)

Lucas Starr (Terminal, ex-Oh, Sleeper) was recently diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and Underoath have decided to help him out with a special benefit show at 2513 Deep Ellum in Dallas, TX on November 5. Terminal, Crown The Empire, ’68, and The Plot In You will serve as support. Underoath‘s Tim McTague commented:

“A lot of stuff that happens in life — you can’t change. Every once in a while, there’s something you can. When our friend Lucas was diagnosed with cancer, we wanted to do more than just posting a GoFundMe. It took a minute, and a lot of work from our team and the promoter, but everyone rallied and we are doing this show. All of the bands are playing to celebrate Lucas and bless his family. 100% of all money made at the door is going straight to Lucas and his family. We hope to see you all there for a sick party for an even better cause.”
