Drake Releases “Days In The East”

For the second time in a week Drake has released a previously unannounced single online. His new song is titled “Days In The East,” and it’s available to be streamed below. This is a song that he had previously performed live, but hadn’t premiered digitally until now. Unlike “Draft Day,” “Days In The East” is […]

MUSIC VIDEO: New Empire – “Say It Like You Mean It”

I think I just discovered one of my new favorite indie rock/pop bands. The group is named New Empire, and they are based out of New South Wales, Australia. They are planning on releasing a brand new album on April 29, titled In A Breath. The group premiered a single from the album a few […]

Sigur Rós To Release “The Rains Of Castamere” For ‘Game Of Thrones’

HBO’s Game of Thrones will be returning to television screens for its fourth season this Sunday, April 6. We found out late last year that Sigur Rós would have a cameo this season. Now they have also recorded a cover of “The Rains of Castamere” for the show. The original track served as the score […]

Artifex Pereo are a six-piece alternative rock outfit based out of Louisville, Kentucky. The group was founded in 2009, and after garnering a dedicated fanbase they’ve finally been picked up by a record label.

Stream Slaves’ Teaser For First Single

A month ago, we saw Jonny Craig announce his new band Slaves via a teaser video. Now, Slaves is streaming a teaser for their first single “The Fire Down Below,” due out on April 22.

ALBUM STREAM: Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks – ‘Enter the Slasher House’

“Millions are waiting to be thrilled by the greatest horror the screen has ever known,” reads the opening text on the new video stream for Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks debut album, Enter the Slasher House.  Animal Collective‘s founding member made his new side project, Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, not too long ago to record some new material […]

Stream Lana Del Rey’s Disco-Inspired Single “Meet Me In The Pale Moonlight”

EDIT: Lana Del Rey herself tweeted that this song is actually an older song intended for someone else and is not included on Ultraviolence. The new single will be called “West Coast.” No matter how devoted or casual a Lana Del Rey fan you are (if at all), it makes sense to associate her as being a pouty-lipped […]

Being As An Ocean Premiere New Song, Announce European Tour

Melodic hardcore act Being As An Ocean have premiered the first single from their upcoming album, How We Both Wondrously Perish, and you can stream it after the break.

Fireworks Stream B-Side From ‘Oh, Common Life’

Michigan’s resident pop punk heroes Fireworks released their third album, Oh, Common Life last week, and it has been a big hit here at UTG and elsewhere. For fans who followed the album’s marketing campaign, however, something seemed to be missing from the album. The haunting song that appeared in an early teaser video did […]

Canadian experimental post rock group Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra will release a new EP called Hang On To Each Other on April 29, and you can stream a new song from the effort, titled “Birds Toss Precious Flowers,” after the break. Following closely on the heels of the group’s seventh album, Fuck Off […]

Gerard Way Disassociates Himself From My Chemical Romance Via Twitter

Given this week’s reunion of Copeland, the tragic and strung-out disbanding of The Dangerous Summer, and last year’s massive comeback year for Fall Out Boy, it’s more apparent than ever that nothing lasts forever. With the ten-year anniversary tour becoming such a common money maker for veteran bands, we’ve seen bands we haven’t heard from […]

Skate And Surf Festival Adds New Found Glory, Alkaline Trio to Lineup

The folks behind Skate and Surf Festival shocked us back in February when they announced that Midtown and Saosin would be headlining this year’s edition of the fest. Today, the lineup gets even better with the addition of headliners New Found Glory and Alkaline Trio. Over the past few weeks, the festival promoters have secretly […]
