Skrillex Drops Cinematic New Video

Yesterday, Skrillex released a new video for his song “Fuck That.” It already has nearly 325,000 views in one day, which would be impressive for most artists. But for the former From First To Last vocalist turned dubstep innovator, this just seems to be par for the course at this point.

The track hails off of his latest album, Recess, which was released back in March. The video features desert highway chases, machine guns, and a Fight Club-esque scene that David Fincher would be proud of.

Ben Howard Directs His Own Beautiful Video For “I Forget Where We Were”

Ben Howard released his second full-length record, I Forget Where We Were, just last month, with plenty of time to shoot to the top of several music lovers’ ‘best of’ lists for 2014 – some of ours here at UTG included.

For the title track’s video, Howard decided to get behind the camera and try his hand at a bit of directing, a choice that seems to be unanimously agreed upon as a wise one. The entire album explores some of the most poignant and affecting lyricism of the year, and the visuals for “I Forget Where We Were” …

UTG PHOTOS: Anberlin’s Final Tour Hits NYC (11/16/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to Irving Plaza in New York City to photograph Anberlin’s Final Tour on November 16, 2014.

Over a decade ago, Anberlin released their first full-length album, Blueprints for the Black Market. In 2014, the band released a studio album entitled Lowborn before they embarked on their final tour ever. On November 26, the band will play their last show with ’68 at the House of Blues in Orlando, FL.

Anberlin took over New York City last weekend, playing two sold-out shows to Irving Plaza. Almost immediately, vocalist Stephen Christian made his way …

NEW EMINEM: Slaughterhouse And Yelawolf Join Slim On “Psychopath Killer”

Eminem dropped a new track yesterday from his upcoming release Shady XV, featuring Slaughterhouse and Alabama’s own Yelawolf.

Mr. Mathers has been making headlines seemingly every day for the past few weeks, whether for jabs at Lana Del Rey or Iggy Azalea. But for as long as he keeps coming out with fire tracks, the primary task at hand should be giving them a listen regardless of your stance on his controversial lyricism.

Shady XV is set to come out this Monday, November 24, just one year following his return to the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 …

Girls Love Beyonce - Drake

Beyoncé Releases Two New Songs, “7/11″ And “Ring Off”

In December of 2013, modern-day icon, Beyoncé, took the world by surprise as she unveiled her self-titled visual album on iTunes without prior promotion. Immediately topping Billboard charts upon its debut, the musician bagged multiple BET awards and was pronounced as the top earning female musician that year.

Refusing to end 2014 without more surprises, the former Destiny’s Child member has revealed that there is more in store. Fans of Queen Bey have been buzzing with rumors about some new material and it would appear that they were right. Beyoncé is reportedly scheduled to release a platinum version of …

Stream The Official Video for “Carousels” from Wild Imaginaries

San Francisco piano-rock band, Wild Imaginaries are fresh off the release of their debut EP and already have more media for fans to enjoy.

You may remember Wild Imaginaries from our recent review of Shades, a powerful 5-song album that the guys produced themselves over the last year.

The official video for the EP’s lead single, “Carousels,” premiered on The Bay Area’s Live 105 website earlier this evening. You can also can stream “Carousels” below the jump.…

Pianos Become The Teeth Release Dual Music Videos For “Repine”

Pianos Become The Teeth have graced us with not one, but two music videos for their track, “Repine.” Taken from their outstanding new record Keep You, the set of clips premiered earlier today on NYLON Guys, and can be viewed in full after the jump.

The first video finds lead singer Kyle Durfey slaving over a large wooden structure with uncertain intent, while the other features an emotive live performance. According to the band, this unique approach was meant to display the song from two different perspectives.

“It should be looked at less as ‘two versions’ for the …

Freddie Gibbs And Mike Dean Team For ‘GTA V’ Track “Sellin’ Dope”

While this isn’t as tight as FlyLo FM and DOOM Lotus – keep in mind that nothing is – “Sellin’ Dope” is yet another stellar addition to the Grand Theft Auto V reissue for XBOX One and Playstation 4.

Much like “Masquatch,” it’s a track tailor-made for cruising around the city at night, up to no good. It’s chilly and throbbing, a beat with a cold edge that the masterful Freddie Gibbs rides like the professional he is. In a game that is, at the end of the day, about ice cold murder, it’ll soundtrack your virtual nightlife nicely.…

Ghostface Killah And AZ Go Hard On “Double Cross”

The latest off Ghostface Killah’s “superhero-revenge concept album” is, as the kids say, straight fire. “The Battlefield” was cool and all, but “Double Cross” is a two-minute, take-no-prisoners throw down about a man wronged by fake friends.

Its place in the story of 36 Seasons seems pretty clear, and it almost certainly sets up more fireworks to come. This isn’t AZ’s only spot on the album either, which only makes that seem more certain.

36 Seasons will be released by Tommy Boy Records on December 9, making it a great stocking stuffer for the whole family. Pre-order it here

Flying Lotus-Doom

Make Time In Your Life For This Track From Flying Lotus And DOOM

It’s “only” two minutes long, but anything from a team of Flying Lotus and DOOM is worth pausing for. The track is one of many from the music Flying Lotus contributed to the Xbox One and Playstation 4 reissues of Grand Theft Auto V (for in-game radio station FlyLo FM), but DOOM’s presence sets “Masquatch” apart.

DOOM spits fast over a late-night beat that manages to be both low-key and unrelenting, a bevy of unnerving effects clattering around a drum’s heartbeat (“heartbeat sounds like Sasquatch feet”).

DOOM, as exquisitely odd as ever, is the perfect partner for the off-kilter productions …

Run The Jewels Are The Worst EMTs In New Video For “Blockbuster Night, Pt. 1″

Killer Mike and El-P recently talked to Pitchfork about the unexpected resounding success of Run The Jewels, with Killer Mike even intimating that he was “ready for retirement” before the duo took off. Whether that’s actually true and Mike really would’ve joined the church is a moot point now, although it’s a good thing it happened. Their late-burgeoning careers mean more good music is in the world, and the two would’ve been terrible EMTs.

In the new video for the fiery, foul-mouthed, bass-heavy single “Blockbuster Night Pt. 1,” Mike and El are clearly the coolest EMTs out there. The …
