Cancel Your Plans & Watch This Fan-Filmed Footage Of Rush

Rush, otherwise known to anyone with a lick of sense as one of the greatest musical creations to ever be given to mankind, recently kicked off their ‘R40’ 40th anniversary tour on May 8 at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

UTG FEATURE: Last Night Leon Bridges Changed My Life

For the better part of the last year I have had my eye on Dallas, Texas native Leon Bridges. His music is both a callback to the now long gone heyday of soul, with influences ranging from Etta James to Sam Cooke, as well as a testament to the power of great songwriting. He can make you fall in love just as easily as he can make you ponder your relationship with the unknown, and he does it all while supplying a steady stream of dancehall-ready music that is sure to get your feet moving.

On Sunday night, May …

Today, May 5, From Autumn To Ashes revealed plans to embark on a summer …


Pure Noise Records Welcomes No Good News

During the winter of 2014 I discovered a band from New York called No Good News that I immediately knew had something special to their sound. I can’t describe what that something was in detail, but I knew it when I heard it, and with each of the thirty-plus plays I gave their EP since that time I have heard it again and again.

Turns out, I’m not alone in thinking this band could be the next big thing.

Today, Pure Noise Records announced the addition of No Good News to their ever-growing roster of talent. The label will be …
