Stream The New Mercy Street (ex-Rufio) Album Now

If you were ever a fan of the almighty Rufio, then frontman Scott Sellers’ newest project in Mercy Street should be right up your alley. Following an excellent debut EP in 2012, the band is finally streaming their first LP–which releases today–through Bandcamp.

Featuring the fast-paced, rifftastic, pop-punk stylings that were prominent in Rufio’s discography, all fronted by Sellers’ recognizable vocals, Let Me Live certainly fills the void left by the departure of one of the most talented bands in the scene in the mid to late 2000s. Featuring 13 tracks–few of which break the three-minute mark–Mercy Street’s …


Stream “Howl” And Fall In Love With Have Mercy All Over Again

Have Mercy are gearing up to release their Hopeless Records debut, and early this morning a new album cut titled “Howl” found its way online. You can receive the song as a download if you pre-order the record today, but if money is low we have a stream right here on UTG that you can enjoy free of charge.

I don’t know about you, but when I think about Have Mercy my mind immediately goes to the moody and emotional “Let’s Talk About Your Hair.” Their latest, “Howl,” maintains the strong lyricism of that track and pairs it with a …


Yellowcard Stream ‘Lift A Sail’ In Its Entirety

A week ahead of its official release date, pop-punk luminaries Yellowcard are streaming their ninth full-length album in full through Pandora.

Featuring even more radio-friendly tracks with an alternative rock sound that’s quite the departure from their earlier pop-punk roots found on One For The Kids and Ocean Avenue, the Florida-based act’s newest release should still appeal to longtime fans but find the band with a wealth of new followers as well.

Lift A Sail is set to release on October 7 through Razor & Tie. You still have time to pre-order the album digitally on iTunes, …


MIXTAPE: Rich Gang – ‘The Tour: Part 1′

Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan, and Birdman have finally released their collaborative mixtape. It’s not exactly what we expected, but it’s guaranteed to keep you bobbing along for many weeks to come.

Released under the guise of the Rich Gang, The Tour: Part One found its way online earlier today following months of blog promotion. The London On Da Track produced effort features twenty brand new tracks with absolutely no guest appearances. Considering the amount of material both Quan and Thugga Thugga have been putting out as of late, the fact there are twenty MORE songs waiting …

Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness will be releasing a self-titled album next month. The musician has had his hand in many projects over the years, and this is his first solo effort. He has released a few new singles over the last couple months. He teamed up with MTV to premiere the latest song off the album, titled “See Her On The Weekend,” and you can listen to it below.

Crystal Caines And A$AP Ferg Deliver Heat On “Whiteline”

Crystal Caines has never made an appearance on UTG before this post, but after hearing her latest single I could quickly see the up and coming emcee become a regular on our front page.

Joined by the incredibly talented A$AP Ferg, who is in the midst of his own breakout year, Crystal Caines’ latest single is a hard-hitting track about putting in work and rubbing shoulders with those who deal in cocaine that you won’t soon forget. It’s the kind of unsuspecting production that is made almost entirely by the flow and aggression brought to the track by the …


New Slipknot Track “XIX” Finds Its Way Online

“This song is not for the living. This song is for the dead.”

“XIX,” otherwise known as the opening track off Slipknot‘s highly-anticipated new album, has appeared online ahead of the record’s late October release. The track begins with a soft spoken Corey Taylor uttering the phrase above before transitioning into an acoustic-driven track that finds Taylor belting about how disconnected he feels from everything around him. He’s broken, alone, and contrary to what you might hear he is not doing well. He wants you to join him, and in many ways “XIX” serves as his call to arms. …


Stream Aretha Franklin’s Cover Of “Rolling In The Deep”

No, that headline is not a lie. The greatest living diva is gearing up to release a new album of covers, and earlier today her take on one relatively young diva’s modern classic debuted online.

Few artists have the ability to instill a sense of excitement and fun in your average music fan quite like Aretha, and it’s not all that hard to understand why. For Decades, Aretha Franklin has been a beacon for all that is good and entertaining in the world of music. Even when her health began to fail, Franklin was a rock in the pop community, …

Funeral For A Friend

Funeral For A Friend Reveal Details For New Album, Stream Lead Single

The post hardcore veterans known as Funeral For A Friend aren’t going anywhere any time soon. As proven by their announcement today, the group is as ready as ever to continue their march forward as a band.

They have announced the details of their latest full-length album, which will end up being their seventh studio release (that’s not even including their EPs!). The new album is titled Chapter And Verse, and it will be released January 15 via Distiller Records. In addition to the announcement, the band has revealed the first official single off the album. The song is …

pianos become the teeth

Pianos Become The Teeth Stream Another Beautiful Single From ‘Keep You’

With each bit we hear from Pianos Become The Teeth‘s Epitaph Records debut, Keep You, we grow accustomed to their somewhat drastic change in sound. The complete omission of screaming previously found throughout their catalogue has left many fans scratching their heads (and bitching), but we’re embracing the new sound as it makes for some of the best material we’ve heard so far this year.

Following the incredible single “Repine,” “Late Lives,” which premiered over at BrooklynVegan today, continues PBTT’s shift with a gorgeously poignant and quietly powerful offering that builds in both beauty and sadness …


Steal My Song: One Direction’s New Single Sounds A Lot Like A Classic New Found Glory Song

One Direction have spent the last several months touring the world in support of their 2013 effort, Midnight Memories. The group somehow found time amidst all their travels to record a new record, which is scheduled to hit stores in November, and earlier today the album’s first single found its way online. The only problem is – I swear I have heard (at least part of it) before.

Let’s rewind. New Found Glory switched gears in 2006 and released a laid back record known as Come Home. It’s an album that sounds unlike any other record from the …


Young Thug [Finally] Releases “Danny Glover” Music Video

Atlanta native Young Thug has finally released the official video for “Danny Glover,” a song that originally found its way online at the beginning of 2014.

You could make the argument that Young Thug rose to fame throughout 2013, but I think it makes more sense to contribute the genre takeover of Thugga Thugga to everything the up and coming emcee has delivered in 2014. There were a few hit singles last year, including “2 Cups Stuffed” and “Stoner,” but when “Danny Glover” hit it became clear that Young Thug was more than a flash in the pan …
