UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Kevin William – “Children”

When the chill of fall weather cuts through the air I know it’s time to bury my pop punk mixtapes under a pile of releases more fitting of the changing leaves and dropping temperatures. For me, that music often involves acoustic albums and melodic hardcore, or really anything with deep emotions and complex ideas. It just so happens a young artist promoting one of those sounds came across my desk this week, and it took only a few minutes to know we had to find a way to work together soon.

Kevin William is an up and coming indie musician …

UTG INTERVIEW: Frank Iero Shows Simplistic Brilliance With New Record

Frank Iero stands with confidence behind his merchandise table. It’s a simple table — a few shirts hang while a stack of posters and records occupy the space between Iero and his patrons. He smiles as he deals out his products — all of which contain the symbol Iero created to represent his music.

Every person who comes to the table is greeted with poise and energy. A father of a group of young girls shakes Iero’s hand with vigor and tells him he came all the way from Cleveland for his show in Des Moines tonight. A mother walks …

Lil Wayne Releases “Gotti” Featuring The Lox

Rapper Lil Wayne has been pushing back the release of Tha Carter V for the past year for unknown reasons, with the most recent push back occurring this past week.
