From Indian Lakes Stream Upcoming Full-Length, ‘Absent Sounds’

California indie/post-rock outfit From Indian Lakes has just premiered their upcoming 10-track record, entitled Absent Sounds. The promising effort set to be released on October 7–a little over a year after signing to Triple Crown Records–features the band’s original sonic elements that will most certainly appeal to the audience they have captivated with the release of their 2012 independent record, Able Bodies.

Frontman and ace lyricist John Vannucchi describes this step in their career as, “finally sleeping at night, or the first sigh of relief after good news.”

You can pre-order the upcoming record via Triple Crown here, and …

ALBUM STREAM: Weezer – ‘Everything Will Be Alright In The End’

With Weezer‘s 9th studio album arriving in just over a week, it seems the guys still have a few surprises. Their latest release, Everything Will Be Alright In The End, has just recently become available for pre-release streaming and urges listeners to forget what they know about the band.

Minus The Bear

Get Acquainted With All of Minus the Bear’s ‘Lost Loves’

Lost Loves is not new. It’s not old. It’s just a collection of songs that have never had a proper recording, or that we didn’t know existed.

Well, finally Minus the Bear have given us this package of glorious songs that were recorded during the sessions of Planet of Ice, Omni, and Infinity Overhead. Having heard “The Lucky Ones” and “Cat Calls & Ill Means,” the band isn’t trying to hide the prior fact.

The album has a strange sense of unity, as the songs aren’t clunky, or obviously recorded at different times. …

When Cities Sleep are an up-and-coming post-hardcore outfit based out of Waldorf, Maryland.

Fireworks-Cant-Hardly-Wait

Flashback: Stream Fireworks’ Original Demo EP, ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’

We have been spending a lot of time at UTG talking about the origin of bands that dominate headlines today. We have been around for over half a decade at this point, but that’s not quite as long enough to have covered every step of an artist’s career. Many bands had several years of recording and touring experience before UTG came into existence. As a result, we missed the opportunity to showcase these acts when they were young and unknown. We can never get that experience in full, but we recently realized we could stroll through memory lane ever-so-slightly by …

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 …

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, …
