NSYNC Are Just As Surprised By Their New Album As You Are

Surprise albums seem to be what’s in right now. But an album so under wraps that the band itself isn’t aware of its existence? Is that going to be a thing now?

A new NSYNC album was released yesterday, and physical copies of it are quickly flying off the shelves. The album, titled The Essential, is a two disc compilation of their best hits as well as a CD’s worth of songs never released on an album before. This is exciting news, so what’s the problem? Apparently none of the band members even knew this album was being released. …


Animal Collective Stream DJ Set; Announce Dates

After Avey Tare has had a few dates in support of his side project, Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, it appears that three-fourths (Geologist, Deakin and Avey Tare) of Animal Collective will hit up a couple of major cities in the US and host some DJ sets. Unfortunately there is no Panda Bear, but this should still be a really interesting and fun experience if they happen to be coming to your city. This group of guys knows how to put on a show, that turns out to be an experience of a lifetime.

They also shared a DJ set …


Cymbals Eat Guitars Post “Warning” and Add Tour Dates

The noise rockers in Cymbals Eat Guitars have a new album entitled LOSE coming out very soon. And the band has been steadily releasing tracks from the effort, and it’s definitely a sleeper pick.

As said, they have already posted the album opener “Jackson”, the melodic “Chambers”, and now they have posted the loud and emotional “Warning.”

The track fits collectively with the prior that they have released. It’s got a fuzzy touch, but the melodies that were present on the earlier tracks are still there, and it’s mixed perfectly.…

Today, we’re pleased to share with you the fantastic debut EP from North Carolina-based skate-punk / melodic hardcore band, FUTURE PRIMITIVEFP14 sounds like the work of a band that already has a few releases under their belt, yet somehow FUTURE PRIMITIVE has only been around for a few months.

Matthew Heller

UTG PREMIERE: Matthew Heller – “Tragedy Town”

Under The Gun Review is excited to team up with Portland Oregon’s Matthew Heller to bring you his dynamic new single, “Tragedy Town.”

The guitar-driven, near-six-minute number is a product of lo-fi and spacey rock ‘n’ roll that sends you through an aural trip into a whole different universe. Mirroring music of a generation past, such as the late ’60s Zappa-esque solo half way through the number, Heller mixes an essence of outright musicianship and songwriting ability — turning the track into a wavy ride.

Listen To Artist Vs Poet’s New Single, “Sincerely Me”

Over the weekend the pop group Artist Vs Poet debuted a brand new single titled “Sincerely Me.” The song is true to their typical style and is pretty damn adorable.

Unfortunately the song cannot be purchased quite yet, but the band confirmed it will be released on iTunes by next week. In the meantime, you can grab their recently released EP Sake Of Love if you haven’t already.…

Our Last Night

MUSIC VIDEO: Our Last Night – “Falling Away”

Our Last Night have released a music video for their single “Falling Away.” The band made the video very personal, and showed a side of one of their members you don’t get to see very often. The video features frontman brothers Matt and Trevor Wentworth singing the lyrics back and forth, but it focuses mostly on Trevor. He’s either sitting, longingly staring out a window or playing on the beach with his son. The song talks about having to be away from friends and family all the time, so it makes sense the video embodies that feeling. You can watch …

Favorite Weapon

Ex-Woe, Is Me Vocalist Starts New Band, Premieres Lead Single

Though the members tried to make things work, it didn’t take long for their band Woe, Is Me to die a slow, painful death. Many of the members went their separate ways, and now former vocalist Hance Alligood has teamed up with Alternative Press to announce his new project. His new band, named Favorite Weapon, is a five piece alternative rock outfit.

In fact, Hance is the only member of the band who …

Run The Jewels Release Proper Teaser of “Blockbuster Night Part 1″

One week ago, we got a brief snippet of a new Run The Jewels track via El-P’s Instagram. Today, we get a proper 90-second teaser of that same track, which we now know is tentatively entitled “Blockbuster Night Part 1.”

With an absolutely nasty beat and comedically angsty lines like “I Jake The Snake ‘em / DDT ‘em in mausoleums,” and “Top o’ the morning / my fist to your face is fuckin’ Folgers,” Killer Mike and El-P are firing on all cylinders with RTJ2. According to a tweet from El-P earlier today, the follow-up to last year’s near-perfect …
