Sins Divider

Sins (Joseph Milligan of Anberlin) Streams New Album, ‘Divider’

Ex-Anberlin guitarist Joseph Milligan has begun streaming his brand new album, Divider, under his longtime solo moniker, Sins. Check it out by following the jump below.

Catchy and calculated, Milligan’s latest undertaking is a straightforward alt-rock rager that will no doubt conjure fond memories of Anberlin’s heyday, which isn’t particularly surprising considering he was one of the group’s primary songwriters for well over a decade. If you like what you hear, sound off in the replies.

UTG PHOTOS: Sasquatch! 2015 – Days 3 & 4 in Quincy, WA

Days three and four of Sasquatch! were nothing short of excellent. Though the weather was unpredictable, it wasn’t as sweltering as many had predicted it would be. With performances from Lana Del Rey, Run The Jewels, SBTRKT, Tame Impala and The Glitch Mob, this year’s Sasquatch! turned out to be pretty impressive. It was also a step up from the disaster that was last year’s festival.

Following up our photo set from days one and two, below you can find our photos from the second half of the fest, featuring Twin Peaks, SBTRKT, Sharon Van Etten, MØ, Run The Jewels, …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Tooken’ Is Just Another Worthless Parody

Film: Tooken
Starring: Lee Tergesen
Directed by: Josh Asher

Despite a cast of notable names and more than enough source material to work with, Tooken is yet another mindless parody film that will quickly be forgotten.

Tooken markets itself as the ultimate parody of the Taken franchise, but from the very first sequence that idea is thrown out the window in lieu of poking fun at every major Liam Neeson film. That would be fine if there were some original ideas to be found, but unfortunately there is very little to be found in this project. Instead, viewers are subjected …

Blurred: It’s OK Not To Be OK

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I don’t think we are vulnerable enough. Being vulnerable is another type of courage. Perhaps we are too much in love with being invincible. A couple weeks ago, I took a look at the much talked about documentary, Montage Of Heck, which chronicled Kurt Cobain, the man and not the mythical figure that we may be familiar with. Albums like Nevermind and In Utero were basically the pulling off of the bandages of life’s old wounds that were persistent within Cobain as he grew up. That pain drew millions and millions …

Sit Down And Watch ‘Kung Fury,’ For Free, Right Now

The Kickstarter campaign that sparked a viral sensation amongst film fans young and old has finally transformed into the final product we all hoped it would become. Kung Fury is here, and it’s 100% free.

If you’re unaware of the magic that awaits, Kung Fury is an over-the-top 80s action movie made in the modern day, but with all the qualities (and drawbacks) of VHS in its glory days. It features Kung Fury, a Kung Fu renegade cop who travels back in time to kill his nemesis, Hitler. The film also features Nazis, dinosaurs, vikings and cheesy one-liners. What’s not …

SINGLE REVIEW: We Came As Romans – “The World I Used To Know”

Artist: We Came As Romans
Song: “The World I Used To Know”
Album: Self-Titled

The evolution of We Came As Romans is entangled with the band’s own passion for storytelling and inspirational lyricism. Their journey is their song, and their songs detail their journey. Having long conquered the world of post-hardcore with multiple albums featuring top shelf production and the perfect combination of sing/scream vocals, the group have now stripped their music to its core, and through doing so found a new sound that marks the beginning of yet another chapter in their already celebrated career.…

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Drunk Wedding’ Offers Cheap POV Laughs

Film: Drunk Wedding
Starring: Nick P. Ross, J.R. Ramirez
Directed by: Nick Weiss

Having suffered through well over a decade of increasingly mindless found footage horror that is typically far too shaky for most audiences to thoroughly enjoy, Drunk Wedding has arrived as proof that POV filmmaking can also be funny.

If there was ever a film about a group of people wandering around a foreign place with cameras you could buy at your local department store that you could actually relate to, it’s Nick Weiss’ Drunk Wedding.…

Tyler, The Creator Hints That Odd Future Are “No More”

It’s hard to believe Odd Future are a group that only came onto the nation rap radar six years ago, but when that happened the crew seemed as tight as any the industry had seen before. Not only were they all friends, but they each possessed a unique take on hip-hop that allowed them to avoid ever sounding too redundant in their delivery. Now, it seems, we may never hear new material from the crew again.

Any fan of Odd Future could tell you it has been a minute since the group was seen together. After initially touring as a …

Drake Drops Unreleased Freestyle During Detroit Performance

Warning: You probably aren’t ready for this.

Drake is not spending much of the summer on the road, but right now he’s currently joining Future on the far too short ‘Jungle’ tour that is hitting arenas nationwide. Last night the run stopped in Detroit at the Palace Of Auburn Hills, and the man behind Views From The Six decided to share something never before released with the crowd of thousands who had paid to see him perform. We weren’t there, but fortunately for us (and you), someone shot a video.

Now you’ve probably seen Drake freestyle before. His flow, though …
