Watch Paramore’s New Music Video For “Hate To See Your Heart Break”

Paramore released one of the most phenomenal records of 2013 in their self-titled album through longtime label, Fueled By Ramen. To celebrate, the band announced last week that they would release a 29-track deluxe reissue that includes bonus tracks as well as several live tracks recorded at their recent performance at Red Rocks.

Also included in the reissue is a re-recording of “Hate To See Your Heart Break” which features ex-The Civil Wars singer Joy Williams chiming in on vocals for the song. A music video for the track has been premiered depicting both Williams ladies (Hayley and Joy) …

Such Gold Premiere Strange Music Video For “Faced”

Melodic punk rockers Such Gold released their passionate new album, The New Sidewalk, via Razor & Tie Records, earlier this month, with much praise here at UTG.

The band has released a music video (via Fuse) for “Faced,” the lead single which was streamed alongside the initial album announcement. The video is rather weird and thrilling, showing an old man taking pills after a disgruntled sleep, followed by paint falling from the top of the ceiling down the four-walled room. There are also live shots of the band who have the same problem, yet they continue to …

Quavo (Migos) Responds To Recent Robbery With “Tha Truth”

A week after being assaulted and robbed following a performance outside our nation’s capital, Migos member Quavo has released a song he hopes will reach those responsible.

Here’s what we know to be fact: Last week, Quavo and the rest of Migos were performing in Washington D.C. At the end of the night, Migos were leaving the club when they were approached by people claiming to be associated with rapper Fat Trel. Mayhem soon ensued, and in the midst of the chaos someone snatched Quavo’s gold chain. This information eventually made it to rap blogs, and over the last …

WATCH: Dej Loaf Performs On Fallon

I have a confession to make: We recently dropped the ball on a hot hip-hop talent that has quickly begun making huge waves in the music industry. Dej Loaf is a Detroit emcee with a lot of passion for music, and her sound is quickly setting her apart from others on the rise. We missed her recent mixtape release, but we are making it a point to never miss another big headline, starting with her recent TV debut.

Appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show, Dej Loaf made her television debut last night with a performance of her popular mixtape …

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: The Classic Crime – “We All Look Elsewhere (Revisited)”

After reaching the milestone of existing an entire decade as a band, The Classic Crime looked to celebrate with the assistance of their fans. Creating a Kickstarter project that received over triple its original goal, the Seattle outfit were thus able to recently release What Was Done, Vol. 1: A Decade Revisited — a phenomenal compilation of re-recorded fan favorites that guitarist/vocalist Matt MacDonald explains in further detail:

“I think a lot of folks were expecting an acoustic record, or very live sounding, stripped-down versions of our songs. To be honest, that’s what we were planning to do, until we …

Out now, the platinum edition reissue features the original studio recording with a bonus disc that includes two new songs in “7/11″ and “Ring Pop,” both of which were released last week in true Beyoncé fashion. Also included on the …

Charli-XCX-Sucker

Charli XCX Releases Yet Another Punchy Single With “Breaking Up”

It’s almost criminal that Charli XCX‘s sophomore album, Sucker, is dropping in December (for now). Old Charli made sense in cooler months, slick and moody alt-pop that had unfortunate timing in coinciding with Lorde’s rise. This sophomore album has taken a hard left into sun-drenched pop of blissful youth, steering determinedly into the unexpected success of “Boom Clap.” I’m working on a comparison to Avril Lavigne’s shift from Under My Skin to The Best Damn Thing, but it needs some work. They both even have hearts!

Much like past singles “Break the Rules,” “London
