Bayside announce seventh LP ‘Vacancy,’ Fall headlining tour

We all know Bayside by now. If you never heard “Devotion and Desire” on a random Warped Tour sampler over the years, then you’ve probably been living beneath an igneous formation deep beneath the earth’s crust. Today, over on their Facebook, the band announced their seventh studio album, Vacancy, will be released on August 19 […]

UTG PREMIERE: Mother Goose – “Pity Party”

New Jersey rock unit Mother Goose are set to release their debut EP, Pity Party, on Friday, April 29. Today, we’re excited to exclusively premiere the effort’s title track. “Pity Party” perfectly showcases the band’s confessional lyrical leanings and bouncy rock-and-roll bravado, reminiscent of Say Anything’s Baseball and Menorah / Majorah, with just a hint of 1970s classic rock. The […]

REVIEW: Sorority Noise – ‘It Kindly Stopped For Me’

Artist: Sorority Noise Album: It Kindly Stopped For Me EP Genre: Acoustic, Indie Label: Topshelf Records In these four songs lie a very modest ancillary of Sorority Noise – one we saw emerge out of their last record Joy, Departed. That portion speaks largely from the backburner end of lyricist and frontman Cameron Boucher’s psyche; […]

With the thinnest layer of piano and a xylophone popping out of raw guitars and […]

The show, which airs Sunday nights on Adult Swim, follows a young boy (Morty) as he journeys with his scientist grandfather (Rick) through space and time on random adventures. […]

REVIEW: Sorority Noise – ‘Joy, Departed’

Artist: Sorority Noise Album: Joy, Departed Genre: Emo, Garage Rock Label: Topshelf Records Joy, Departed doesn’t sound like a Sorority Noise record, and that’s a good thing. The band’s debut record–the aptly titled Forgettable–is a fun listen with little substance beyond a few catchy choruses and well-written one-liner lyrics. Where Forgettable serves as the polar […]

Sorority Noise Stream New Record, ‘Joy, Departed’

Sorority Noise have finally unveiled their fantastic, highly-anticipated sophomore record, Joy, Departed. You can stream the record below, courtesy of Noisey. Joy, Departed makes a noticeable shift away from the fun, yet caustic vibe of Forgettable in favor of a slower, more emo-influenced drive. The band pull the new sound off exceedingly well, and a few mold-breaking […]

I never thought I’d ever be able to write lyrics about getting better and finding all the good in the terrible.” This very statement from vocalist Cam Boucher is probably the greatest depiction of Sorority Noise’s stellar new record, Joy, Departed, […]

Sorority Noise Just Released One Of The Year’s Best Songs In “Using”

I listen to a lot of music. I figure that I check out at least two new records every week. I like a lot of what I listen to, but every year or so, I hear a song that cuts through the rest, makes my jaw hit the floor, and immediately shines forward as a song that […]
