REVIEW: Adam Lambert – Trespassing

Artist: Adam Lambert Album: Trespassing Genre: Pop Label: RCA Adam Lambert is one of the few artists who make reality talent shows seem worthwhile. In a sea of indentical, fleeting wannabes, he stood out even during his American Idol days as a talented and provocative artist and extravagant showman. This diligence and glamour has seeped […]

Owl City Announce Tour Dates

Pop and electronic fronted group, Owl City has announced a number of tour dates this summer. The tour will run from June 29th to July 23rd. Support for the tour have yet to be announced.

STREAM: Driveway – South Ossetia

Dublin-based punk group Driveway recently released their new EP South Ossetia on bandcamp to stream and buy. Driveway hasn’t really broken in the United States yet, but their new EP is very enjoyable that is sure to please fans of bands such as Turnover, You Blew It!, Citizen, Basement and those who are into that […]

Warped Tour Releases Compilation Tracklist

Summer punk extravaganza Warped Tour has announced the tracklist for its famous compilation album that it puts out every year, and it’s got a very great mix of awesome bands on the tour this year.

Freddie Mercury to Appear on Stage With Queen

Well, this was inevitable I guess. Queen recently announced that their late-singer Freddie Mercury will be playing with them on Monday in order to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their musical We Will Rock You. Now I know what you’re thinking, “But Under the Gun Review, Freddie Mercury is dead, right?” Well, you thought right, […]

Looks like blues rockers The Black Keys have a documentary in the works. Director, photographer and friend of the band, Noah Abrams calls it “a buddy comedy with perhaps the greatest soundtrack of all time.” Abrams has been alongside the band since January as they’ve been touring and will continue to collect footage until August. […]

PREMIERE: Runaway Brother – “We Don’t Have to Go Home Anymore”

Runaway Brother has been on the UTG radar for a while now and we’ve been (most patiently) waiting for a full length record from a band that so far has boasted 2 solid EPs. That full length album will be out fairly soon. But before then, a third EP called Bedhead (which is currently in the […]

REVIEW: Kip Moore – Up All Night

Artist: Kip Moore Album: Up All Night Genre: Country Label: MCA Nashville Kip Moore certainly won’t be winning any awards for boldness. His achingly romanticized odes, while charming, loiter throughout this album like a clingy ex that just won’t go away. Practically every song is rooted in the same subject, so much so that after […]

LIVE VIDEO: Geoff Rickly – “Understanding in a Car Crash (Acoustic)”

Geoff Rickly (Ex-Thursday… man that’s weird write ex-Thursday) recently played a solo show in Philadelphia, and the venue was courteous enough to record arguably one of their best tracks, “Understanding in a Car Crash” on video! The band recently called it a day, but the lead singer has been playing solo shows here and there […]
