Under The Gun recently sent Staff Photographer Kellie Gannon to cover the No Guts No Glory Tour stop in Cleveland!

December is always a hectic month.  Between family time, getting ready for the impending holidays, and the end of the semester (if you’re still in school), this is always a crazy, busy, final month of the year.  Two weeks ago, on December 7th, the No Guts No Glory Tour graced Peabody’s in Cleveland, OH & I’m still reminiscing on what may have been one of the most energetic tours to wrap up the year.  The Amity Affliction, Letlive, …

REVIEW: Punk Goes Pop Volume 4

Artist: Various
Album: Punk Goes Pop Volume 4
Genre: Compilation/Covers
Label: Fearless

It is hard to know if the current scene can survive a year without a Punk Goes… compilation. Started in 2000, eleven different entries have hit shelves to date, each featuring a wide array of talent from across the alternative music scene performing covers of various subgenre classics. The twelfth entry, Punk Goes Pop Volume 4, hits shelves this week and proves once again that no one can makes a mixtape quite like Fearless Records.

James Shotwell is the founder of Under The Gun Review.

the ready set

STREAM: The Ready Set ft. MODSUN – Roll Up (Wiz Khalifa Cover)

Another song off Fearless Records’ forthcoming Punk Goes Pop compilation has made its way online.

Bringing together The Ready Set and UTG favorite MODSUN, this rendition of “Roll Up” is hands down the best contribution to PGP4 to surface yet. A perfect combination of the original with just enough pop rock and hippy hop to make it feel fresh once again. Click through to experience it for yourself.

We’ll probably say it another half dozen times before November 21, but if you like any of the Punk Goes Pop 4 tracks we post, please go out and buy the record …

Another track off Fearless Records’ forthcoming Punk Goes Pop 4 compilation has found its way online ahead of the street date.

Following in the footsteps of August Burns Red on Punk Goes… compilations past, Sumerian Records’ I See Stars have taken on Ms. Britney Spears. Their song of choice: “Til The World Ends” of course (because, you know, they’re throwing the end of the world party). You can stream the track, which has been reworked to feature dueling vocals, breakdowns, and enough chugs to make the guys not feel bad for realizing they know all the words to a …

STREAM: For All Those Sleeping – You Belong To Me (Taylor Swift Cover)

We told you more Punk Goes Pop 4 tracks would be on the way and low and behold, here’s another!

Fearless Records’ For All Those Sleeping have added a plethora of breakdowns and chugs to country songstress Taylor Swift’s “You Belong To Me.” You can stream the cover after the jump.

For All Those Sleeping’s debut went by without much coverage, but their dedication to touring has earned them a crazed live following. Fans of breakdowns and all-over print shirts dig this band. If that applies to you, maybe you’ll enjoy them too.
