The first official trailer for Sonic Highways found its way online this afternoon through the various social channels controlled by members of Foo Fighters. The three and a half minute clip features a variety of music icons, as well as beautiful …

Hidden In Plain View Announce NYC Show, Tickets On Sale Tomorrow

Earlier this week, our buddies in Hidden In Plain View announced a one night only show in New York City on October 4 at the Gramercy Theatre. This show comes after a recent reunion date at the Skate and Surf Festival in Asbury Park, NJ.

The band’s most successful album Life In Dreaming was released in 2005 and is often associated with the glory days of Drive-Thru Records. Our very own John Bazley conducted an interview with the band just after their performance in New Jersey last month.

Could we expect any more upcoming dates from the band? What other …

the Last Man on Earth

Will Forte is All Alone in ‘The Last Man on Earth’ Trailer

It looks like Fox is ready to get weird. The TV station will be picking up a new comedy series called The Last Man on Earth later this year which stars Will Forte and whose pilot was directed by the guys behind The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Seth Cohen is also an executive producer. The show follows Phil Miller (Forte) who is literally the last man on Earth… making Forte the only star of the show. Yes, really.

Considering there’s only so much one person can do, we’ll see how this show pans out. Forte is, …

Bring Me The Horizon To Play Wembley Arena This Year

When it comes to indoor concert venues, it doesn’t get much bigger than Wembley Arena (literally, and figuratively speaking). In its 80 year history it has hosted some of the biggest artists in the world. The list includes The Beatles, The Who, David Bowie and many more. It would undoubtedly be a huge honor to have the opportunity to play at such an iconic venue – and that’s exactly what Bring Me The Horizon will be doing.

The band announced early this morning that they will perform at Wembley Arena December 5. Pre-sale tickets will go on sale this Wednesday …


UTG PHOTOS: Twenty One Pilots, Robert DeLong & Sirah (10/24/13)

Under The Gun’s photographer, Tori Thomas, attended the Twenty One Pilots show featuring Robert DeLong and Sirah at The Intersection in Grand Rapids, MI on October 24, 2013.

When I arrived to The Intersection, I could tell that this was going to be one of the best shows I’ve seen. I had the chance to interview Sirah (check back here tomorrow) before the show and got an idea where her music comes from; she’s down to earth and you could tell during her performance. During one song, she had a security guard support her on the barricade to be closer …


UTG PHOTOS: Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, & Twenty One Pilots (9/14/13)

Under The Gun sent photographers Corbin Alvae and Tori Thomas to The Palace on September 14 in Auburn Hills, MI.

This tour had an absolutely fabulous line-up on an amazing and memorable sunny day in Michigan! Shocker, since I, Corbin, usually always get stuck in the rain for events as you may have seen in any of my previous sets. Anyway, Tori and I were extremely excited to team up together to capture some photographic memories of this tour filled with acts we both grew up listening to and one newer act who is fantastic! So let’s get to how …

A$AP Rocky

A$AP Rocky Concert Ends Quickly After Someone Steals His Hat

According to HipHop DX and a fan with video proof, A$AP Rocky ended his show yesterday in Germany rather quickly after someone stole his Supreme hat. The A$AP Mob and Rocky were performing the A$AP Ferg track, “Work (Remix),” when apparently someone snatched the hat off his head while engaging with fans.

At around 0:51, A$AP Rocky cut the music and went on to say, “I came to party with y’all. Who took my shit, man? Give me my hat so I can go. That’s a one-of-a-kind hat. Don’t try and creep to the back. Who got my …

Twenty One Pilots

UTG PHOTOS: Twenty One Pilots & New Politics (4/26/13)

Under The Gun’s photographer, Tori Thomas attended the Twenty One Pilots show featuring New Politics and Five Knives at the LC Pavilion in Columbus, OH on April 26, 2013.

I arrived to this show expecting nothing but surprises, especially with this being a hometown show for Twenty One Pilots. First in the lineup was Five Knives, however I was unable to make it in time to see their set. Judging from a previous show I saw them at opening for TOP, I’m sure they set the mood for the evening with a flawless performance.

Next up was New Politics

Lauryn Hill Is Doing A Show In Brooklyn, Then Going To Jail

Hill is slated to go to prison on July 8, so what is she doing with her final month? Doing one live show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York. Tickets went on sale today; they are available here for a hefty price. According to her Twitter, the reason she’s doing a …
