Purchase the EP […]

Squid The Whale

LIVE VIDEO: Squid the Whale – “Bad Man”

I recently went to see Squid the Whale in Columbus, Ohio where I stood near fans who skipped out on the Twenty One Pilots show, that was right down the road, just to be there. If you have spent any time with fans of southern Ohio music, you’d know this to be a big deal. […]

Reign Supreme Release Lyric Video For New Song “The Hopelessly Devoted”, Set Release Date For ‘Sky Burial’ EP

Moshy hardcore act Reign Supreme have been teasing their Sky Burial EP for a long time. Frontman Jay Pepito was talking about the concept behind the title back in July of 2011. They tweeted that the dang thing was done back in May of last year. Then, silence. Until now. According to the band’s Facebook, Sky […]

WATCH: Nardwuar Interviews Hopsin

Not a fan of the shrill, intentionally awkward interview style of internet persona grata est Nardwuar? A) What is the matter with you? He’s awesome! And B) That’s too bad you feel that way. You’re about to be inundated with a whole lotta Nard. The Vancouver-based interviewer went one on one with the emcee with […]

Lovelectric Ovation

REVIEW: Lovelectric – An Ovation For Innovation

Band: Lovelectric Album: An Ovation For Innovation Genre: Rock/Pop Label: Unsigned I can already tell it’s going to be an amazing year for NY/NJ pop-rock act, Lovelectric. In fact, had their new EP, An Ovation For Innovation, been released any earlier, it would’ve easily made the top of my Best of 2012 list for UTG, […]

Chiodos 2012

Thomas Erak (Ex-Fall Of Troy) Joins Chiodos

Michigan’s hard rock act Chiodos has officially announced Thomas Erak (ex-Fall Of Troy) as their new guitarist. The decision comes two months after Jason Hale parted ways with the group. In an announcement video released this morning, Erak introduces himself to fans, gives some insight into his musical background, and hints at a small change […]

The Bronx

REVIEW: The Bronx – IV

Artist: The Bronx Album: IV Genre: Hardcore/Punk Label: White Drugs I’m tempted to write that it’s business as usual here for The Bronx, but doing so feels like a disservice. The simply-titled IV (as in, their fourth eponymous album) is a model of cast-iron efficiency, utilising all the toughness and relish and jarring qualities that […]

james iha

MUSIC VIDEO: James Iha – “Speed Of Love”

James Iha, axe slinger most famous for his time with The Smashing Pumpkins during their heyday, has been keeping himself mighty busy since he split with Billy Corgan and co. Just don’t expect everything he does to sound even remotely Pumpkins-esque. Iha manages to split his time between a couple of different bands, including A Perfect […]


TRAILER: More Found Footage Horror Awaits In ‘S-VHS’

Whether you stand on the side of loving it, hating it, or simply appreciating what it attempts to do in terms of trying new things, there is no doubt VHS was one of the most popular horror titles of 2012. That said, it should come as absolute no surprise that another round of found footage […]

Paint Branch

ALBUM STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Paint Branch (ex-Q And Not U) – ‘I Wanna Live’

Q And Not U are perhaps my favorite Dischord Records band that never had Ian MacKaye in them and one of my favorite post-hardcore bands. They were composed of amazing musicians in John Davis, Harris Klahr, Christopher Richards, and Matt Borlik, with Matt leaving the band before they broke up in 2005. Now, two members have formed a new […]
