Stream Pity Sex’s “Acid Reflex” From 7-Inch Split With Adventures

With their overlapping fans and the support of Run For Cover Records, it only makes sense that Pity Sex and Adventures (members of Code Orange) collaborate on a new release this year. Both bands have announced that they are releasing a 7-inch split EP on October 7. The split will contain an unreleased song and […]

Brooklyn, NY natives I Am The Avalanche stay true to their hometown when writing songs for their records.

The band released a video for their newest Brooklyn anthem “177” off Wolverines, which premiered today on USA Today. The […]

Willie and the Giant

PREMIERE: Willie and the Giant – “Poor Boy”

Tapping the sensual and sexual tone of adult contemporary jazz rock, Willie and the Giant are one of the best easy listens to rise out of the ranks of Nashville in recent memory. With roots in Alabama, the quartet mixes and matches jazz, rock, easy listening, and lo-fi jam music to make truly sweet sounds. […]

Watch The Music Video For Jon Bellion’s New Single, “Carry Your Throne”

I’m not one to gush much. Sure, there are bands and artists that I adore and may enjoy talking about but there aren’t too many. With that being said though, the one artist that I have shamelessly been promoting the last few months is Long Island-based singer/songwriter Jon Bellion. I have thoroughly enjoyed everything he’s […]

Mallory Knox recently announced that they would be releasing a brand new album next month, titled Asymmetry. This effort will be their sophomore full-length album. Some of us here at UTG have been swooning over the band since they dropped their EP, but with the group’s newest single even more people may find a reason […]

Love Bad Movies? Help The Internet Make ‘Samurai Cop 2’ A Reality

There are bad movies and then there are those films that are so godawful that they somehow become cult hits that outlast well made films in terms of popularity by a wide margin. The Room is a classic example, as well as Troll 2, but in my opinion neither of those creative endeavors can hold […]

FESTIVAL PREVIEW: The 10 Must-See Acts At Riot Fest Chicago

Most decisions in life are hard. Where should I go to college? What should I eat for lunch? What career path should I take? How should I cut my hair? Do I like Dumbledore or Gandalf better? Deep dish or thin crust? The most pressing question bothering us over the last week is which Riot […]

Unearth Unleash “The Swarm” Upon Us

Damn, this new Unearth absolutely rips. The band’s sixth studio album, Watchers Of Rule, is due out October 28 through eOne, and to stoke the fires of anticipation they’ve released “The Swarm” upon our ears. Featuring some welcomed shreds and blast beats, Unearth have certainly upped the game with their newest single. It’s heavy, it’s […]

REVIEW: Sleepwave – ‘Broken Compass’

Sir Sly Stream Debut Album ‘You Haunt Me’ In Full

Early last year, I bought a Sir Sly 7″ single from Neon Gold based on one single song that I couldn’t get enough of. I’ve been waiting for their debut ever since. The Los Angeles-based indie pop group began streaming that debut, entitled You Haunt Me, earlier this week over at Pigeons and Planes. As […]

FESTIVAL PREVIEW: The Best Riot Fest Chicago After Parties

Riot Fest Chicago doesn’t have to end at 10 p.m. when the last band hits the closing note of the evening — no, the punk rock party scatters and moves throughout the city for various after parties and social events for you to attend at your pleasure. Sets from Mineral, The Get Up Kids, Rise […]

Stream Generationals’ ‘Alix’ Just In Time To Close Out Summer

Sunny beats. Beachy vocals. Surf pop. I’m not entirely sure if any of those things are actually things but in the case of Generationals, I’m just going with it. As the followup to last year’s Heza, the New Orleans duo’s newest, Alix, is everything you love about summer all wrapped up into one 10-track, smile-pop […]
