HiM Sign To Razor & Tie, Tour And Album Coming Soon

According to the most hypercritical news post I’ve seen made on a website other than UTG, HiM have signed to Razor & Tie Records. Their next album, Tears On Tape, will be released on April 30. At first, I thought that album title was just a play on sadder sounding music, but it turns out […]

Mark Lanegan Appears On New Queens Of The Stone Age Record

We predicted this (or maybe just prayed for it) back in November. Dave Grohl is the drummer on the new Queens of the Stone Age album, Nick Oliveri sings on a track, and now we know one Mark Lanegan, former vocalist for QotSA and Screaming Trees, has also recorded on the new album. This means […]

The New Jersey duo’s album will […]

DOWNLOAD: Dinosaur Pile-Up – “Lip Hook Kiss”

Dinosaur Pile-Up may not be a name everybody recognizes at this point, but they should be, in our opinion. One Matt Bigland used to be the guitarist and singer for Mother Vulpine, who were on a major rise in popularity when they broke up; he is now the every man for DPU. (Pulled Apart By […]
