Nick Santino To Release New EP, ‘Savannah,’ In December

Not too long after former A Rocket To The Moon frontman, Nick Santino, released two EPs and his debut full-length as a solo artist, the Boston singer-songwriter is scheduled to put out another EP this year. Savannah is slated for a December 19 release under 81twentythree.

The forthcoming effort, following his stellar, country-infused May 2014 record, Big Skies, is reportedly self-written and self-produced by Santino in his own attic. On the announcement he made earlier today, Santino writes, “Really excited to officially announce my upcoming new EP – Savannah. I wrote and recorded these new songs up in …

Frank Ocean Shares New Song “Memrise”

Frank Ocean is finally back. After the success of his debut studio album, Channel Orange, in 2012, the Odd Future crooner has been back in his studio working on his follow-up full-length. The last material we heard from him was back in March of this year when he teamed up with Diplo and members of The Clash for free mp3 “Hero.” Today, he returns with a short new song that satisfies our sweet tooth until a new LP is announced.

The song, titled “Memrise,” sees Frank Ocean asking a lover to come over, dazzling his tale with …

Abigail Breslin Shares Epic Breakup Anthem “You Suck”

Remember that adorable girl from Little Miss Sunshine? She’s matured into a young woman and recently had her heart broken by some guy in a band (rumored to be Michael Clifford from 5 Seconds Of Summer). Her response? Write a song, of course.

Abigail Breslin partnered with the fine folks at Teen Vogue recently to share the music video for the actresses’ latest single, “You Suck.” The track is a midtempo anthem for every girl who has ever fallen in love with someone in a band and lived to regret it. The video is basically Breslin performing in and …

From Autumn To Ashes End Their Six-Year Hiatus, Playing First Show in 2015

After taking a previously indefinite break from their career, the Long Island post-hardcore outfit known as From Autumn To Ashes have finally announced their comeback. This reunion will be solidified by their newly-announced appearance at the Amnesia Rockfest with Swedish outfit Refused (among others to be announced), in Montebello, Canada which will run from June 18 to June 21 in 2015.

FATA first hinted at their reunion in October when the band ambiguously tweeted a photo of the cover art for their debut record, Too Bad You’re Beautiful, from 2001. The band also made a Facebook page on November …

Written and directed by Jennifer Kent, The Babaook may be the best horror film of 2014, and with a little help from loyal genre fans those who enjoy the flick can now own a cool piece of memorabilia.

Decide How You Want Coldplay’s New Music Video For “Ink” To Play Out

With about 300 available outcomes for Coldplay‘s new interactive music video for their song, “Ink,” viewers can decide the different paths taken by the main character during his quest for a lost lover. Each selection a viewer makes changes the scenario’s outcome, but ultimately results in a conclusion that coincides with the song’s disheartening sentiments.

Directed by Los Angeles agency, Blind, with the help of a media company called Interlude, the music video features a stunningly animated storyline that accentuates the magic brought about by the heartbreaking track’s mystique.

“Ink” is taken from Coldplay’s most recent full-length album, Ghost

Chance The Rapper and The Social Experiment Give First Glimpse of ‘Surf’

Looks like we’re getting our first glimpse at the previously announced upcoming album from Chance The Rapper and his band The Social Experiment.

For those who don’t know, The Social Experiment is actually a band which includes Chance, and their upcoming album, Surf, is not going to directly bear Chance’s name. In fact, the lead single from Surf is listed as “Donnie Trumpet And The Social Experiment.” Donnie, like Chance, is simply a member of the band.

Regardless, the track is a slick one and features some classic Chance The Rapper sounds both instrumentally and in Bennett’s vocal …

‘Unfinished Business’ Trailer: Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco & Tom Wilkinson Head To Europe

I’ve lost count of how many times Vince Vaughn has played a wise-cracking loser who is on the verge of turning his luck around, but his latest attempt to extend his stay in the world of comedy looks like it may actually be worth your time and money.

Unfinished Business finds Vince Vaughn trying to save a company he started while going head-to-head with a much larger firm (his former employer) during a business trip to Europe. He has two associates–Dave Franco and Tom Wilkinson–each of whom possess many quirks that will (likely) save the film. The first trailer hit …

The Gaslight Anthem Release “1000 Years” Music Video

The Gaslight Anthem released their latest full-length album, Get Hurt, back in August with a slight shift in sound. However, they’ve certainly held onto the musical roots that fans have cherished from their past works. We here at UTG loved it.

Today, the band has released a new music video for their latest single “1000 Years” off the latest effort that came out via Island Records. The video depicts the band in a live setting so the viewer has front row seats to a typical Gaslight Anthem live experience.

REVIEW: Cursive – ‘The Ugly Organ’ Reissue

Artist: Cursive
Album: The Ugly Organ Reissue
Genre: Post-Hardcore, Indie
Label: Saddle Creek

Cursive recently reissued their monumental album, The Ugly Organ. Featuring the original work remastered, and eight bonus tracks, The Ugly Organ revisited is a wonderfully eccentric trip down memory lane.

Featuring a fuller, more prominent production, every percussion hit, guitar resonance, and vocal outburst feels all the more weighted. For those who–and there are many of you–adored the psychedelic rock experience that was The Ugly Organ back in 2003, there is no reason for you to not once again be gawking over its glory these eleven …
