Max Jury 2014 interview

Max Jury Delivers Clever New Single, “Black Metal”

Des Moines, Iowa’s own singer-songwriter Max Jury debuted his brand new single, “Black Metal,” off of the upcoming EP, All I Want: The Sonic Factory Sessions via Clash yesterday. The song is a clever demise of a damsel who enjoys…you guessed it, black metal.

Jury is at his best when channeling his unique style of late ’60s and early ’70s piano-balanced rock ‘n’ roll, which is shown in the new single. If the new track is any indication of the direction of the new EP, then this Midwestern boy is ready to steal listeners’ hearts and souls far and wide. …

Unreleased Smashing Pumpkins Remix by P. Diddy Is Here

Almost two decades ago, P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, Puffy–whatever you want to call him–reportedly took his turn on two of Smashing Pumpkins‘ classic songs, “Perfect” and “Ava Adore.” The former was released shortly after they were announced. “Ava Adore,” on the other hand, has never seen the light of day. Until now.

This is how a remix should be done. Taking elements of a song, and enhancing them with some different ideas. Removing pretty much every guitar part and replacing them with a vibrant, celestial string section with the drum track, enhances this track to a new dimension. The …

UTG PREMIERE: Sara Rachele – “Never Come Around”

As one of New York City’s via Atlanta, Georgia’s best-kept gems, Sara Rachele (pronounced ra-kelly) is creating the type of music lost in the digital age. Her new record, Diamond Street, produced by Ponderosa’s Kris Sampson (Balkans, B-52′s, The Coathangers), is a lo-fi rock ‘n’ roll effort worthy of Stevie Nicks. Her form of transparent and loose songwriting is ready to capture the hearts of America and beyond.

Today we are bringing you a song titled “Never Come Around” off of the brand new record. Inheriting the lo-fi essence described above, Rachele knocks out a swooning and sweet …

Jermaine Dupri Shares “Pull-Up” Featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Migos

That headline is not a lie and you are not dreaming. Jermaine Dupri has returned to the studio and delivered a new single featuring two of the biggest names in urban music today.

“Pull-Up” has all the makings of a chart-topping single, at least on paper. Dupri, a seasoned industry vet with a house made of platinum plaques to back up his pedigree, paired with Taylor Gang member Ty Dolla $ign and the “Versace” loving rap family known as Migos. The problem is, no one has anything to share that hasn’t been spit on a thousand tracks before. Migos …

Vanities Band 2014 Dead Beats EP

UTG Premiere: Vanities – “Too Little Too Late”

I am not sure what else can be written about Vanities that has not already been scrawled across this site a dozen times in the past year. Rising from relative obscurity in New England, Vanities have quickly become a band everyone with an ear for the heavier side of music needs to know. Their debut EP was released in the fall of 2013, and today it gives us great pleasure to inform you the group’s second release, Dead Beats, will be self-released by the band on September 23.

In our opinion there is no reason to announce a new …

MUSIC VIDEO: The Weeknd – “King Of The Fall”

About a week ago The Weeknd revealed a music video for his single “Often.” Even though only a short amount of time has passed since that video dropped the artist is streaming another new video. This time the visuals are for the song “King Of The Fall,” and you can enjoy them below the break.

Though Tesfaye has not announced a new album or mixtape at this time, it seems that he may have something in the works. With two brand new tracks and an upcoming tour with the same name as the aforementioned single, it’s hard not to wonder …

The Smith Street Band Stream “Surrender”

Australian folk-punk heroes The Smith Street Band are streaming a new track titled “Surrender” via Noisey. “Surrender” is the first single to be lifted off of their highly anticipated third full-length, Throw Me In The River, which will be released in the USA via SideOneDummy Records on October 28.

“Surrender” is an absolute corker of a track which features the witty lyricism, unbridled passion and raw instrumentation the band is infamous for, delivered in the most assured and accomplished manner yet. Gritty, challenging and yet oddly cathartic at the same time, “Surrender” serves as the ideal introduction to …

Exotype

STREAM: Exotype – “Wide Awake” Feat. Chad Ruhling

When Exotype announced that they had signed on to Rise Records earlier this year, all they had to offer for fans to listen to was a demo they had been working on. Now that some time has passed the band is finally ready to unleash the lead single off their forthcoming full-length album.

The new song is titled “Wide Awake,” and it features guest vocals by Chad Ruhling of For The Fallen Dreams. It’s available to stream below the jump.

The group will be dropping their debut full-length album October 7. Pre-order bundles are available for purchase through MerchNow

Texas In July Stream “Nooses” From ‘Bloodwork’

Not long after metalcore quintet Texas In July streamed their new song, “Sweetest Poison,” the band has once again put out another new song entitled “Nooses,” which premiered over at Metal Injection today.

Notably heavier and more aggressive, it seems as though the band has gone above and beyond their usual recording cycle to produce these new tracks, as so many of its unusual and experimental characteristics bleed right through. TIJ fans can expect a lot more of these nuances from the upcoming record, which is set to be released on September 16 under Equal Vision Records.

LISTEN: Zedd Remixes MAGIC!’s Radio Hit, “Rude”

It’s safe to say that anything EDM Producer/DJ Zedd puts his hands has the potential to make you love his version a little more than the original.

This most recent remix sure makes it seem like it, at least. Millions of people across the globe have been listening to Canadian reggae fusion outfit MAGIC!’s radio hit, “Rude,” and it’s pretty catchy. As every song being aired a hundred times a day, however, it eventually gets old and the desire to listen to the same track once more declines to a zero. This is where Zedd swoops in and gives the …

Asking Alexandria Release “Moving On” Music Video

Metalcore turned heavy metal outfit Asking Alexandria have released a brand new music video for “Moving On,” one of the many cuts from the group’s most recent record, From Death to Destiny. Staying in line with the track’s lyrical content, the video contains a slew of emotional live shots mixed with members of other bands holding up signs for loved ones left behind every time they hit the road.

Follow the jump to check out “Moving On,” and once you’ve done that, be sure to check out our interview with Asking Alexandria’s own Danny Worsnop here.…

Ace Enders Shares Half of a Song, Tentatively Called “Keep Moving”

It’s been a minute since Ace Enders has excited me this much. Between this and the song he released earlier this year, “One More Song,” it’s getting pretty obvious he’s working on something.

Today, Enders shared a iPhone Session video, that was taken in the studio as he was apparently helping mix another band’s record. The description below the video on YouTube tells the story of the creation.

“A few months back I was mixing a record for another band. While each track was bouncing down (roughly 3-4 minutess each), I wrote 8 songs in that time, playing …
