Leanne Cushing’s ‘Best of 2013’ In Music

My friends, UTG colleagues and I are all driven and inspired by music in some way or another. It is the art form that we connect with the most; it is the way we communicate our aspirations to the outside world and helps connect us to people with similar loves, dreams and ambitions.

HOLY SH!T: The Strokes New Album Coming In 2013

The Strokes haven’t released an album since 2011’s Angles. They have talked about working on the next effort before, but this still caught me very off guard. The Strokes will have a new album out in 2013, with a new song, “All The Time”, sent to a radio station and set to leak “soon“. Guitarist […]

DOWNLOAD: Tera Melos – “Tropic Lane”

Tera Melos have been working on a new record for some time. I would even guess that the album’s been finished for a while since guitarist and vocalist Nick Reinhardt had the time to come out with a solo album for Christmas. Today, they had a song, “Tropic Lane” premier on Rolling Stone from their […]

Bad Religion

Bad Religion Announces Spring Tour With Against Me! And Polar Bear Club

Bad Religion recently were announced to be on the oddly titled Punk Rock Bowling lineup, but have now added several more tour dates. The entire tour also features Against Me!, hitting with a hard one-two punch of punk. Personally, Bad Religion is the right mix of pop/punk and heavy punk for me: it’s not so […]

Sparta Working On Their Fourth Record

Once upon a time, At The Drive In split up into two bands, The Mars Volta and Sparta. The Mars Volta gained a ton of fame, and Sparta gained a little. At The Drive In got back together, and then Sparta stayed quiet. Now Sparta has announced via Instagram that they have begun working on […]

RUMOR: The Postal Service Reunion Happening

The internet can be a great place, because its spontaneous microblogging and, quite frankly, sheer overload of information allows news to happen on the fly and let fans know instantly what the deal is. Unfortunately, it also allows websites to post a sincere lack of information about what’s going on for maximum hits. One BrooklynVegan […]

WATCH: Queens Of The Stone Age Behind The Scenes Video

Queens of the Stone Age have done a lot of teasing lately, what with the Trent Reznor, Dave Grohl, and Nick Oliveri news. They’ve even sent a strange message to Mojo Magazine recently that was rather cryptic and said nothing concrete except that we should look forward to the new album. Continuing their trend, today […]
