For Vegas Lights, a young post-hardcore group from Detroit, the answer to how they will make themselves stand out was simple: Cover One Direction.

Today, UTG is thrilled to present …

UTG INTERVIEW: Corpus Discuss ‘The Sliding Scale of Morality’

Sometimes, while waiting for a headliner to take the stage, you encounter a support act whose performance flips the script on your expectations and leaves an indelible mark on your memories of the night. For me, Corpus is one of those acts.

Personally selected by Bert McCracken to support The Used on the Australian leg of their dual headlining tour with Taking Back Sunday, the duo from Western Sydney took the eyes and ears of the Melbourne audience hostage with an energetic, raw and utterly captivating performance that didn’t so much as just warm the stage as set it on …

Cedar Boulevard Stream New Song, “A Raven Like A Writing Desk”

Resonant of early-era A Day To Remember blended into the instrumental force of bands such as Pierce The Veil and smooth vocal timbres from You Me And Everyone We Know, these Toronoto newcomers who go by the name of Cedar Boulevard are undeniably putting the heavier elements of pop-punk onto the foreground.

This first track, which is called “A Raven Like A Writing Desk,” is taken from their upcoming self-titled EP. The theatrical introduction gates listeners properly for a hard-hitting, mosh pit-inducing ride. Check out the new song below and let us know what you think.

Sydney duo Corpus have been causing quite the ruckus down under over the last three years with their unique brand of indie-tinged post-hardcore and riotous live shows, earning them dizzying acclaim from some of the scene’s most discerning ears (including Sydney resident and frontman of The Used, Bert McCracken).

I Prevail Cover Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space”

Believe it or not, there are still some bands out there who are churning out high quality cover songs.
