Reggie and the Full Effect Release Monster Video for “37″

Just in time for Halloween, James Dewees, the genius behind Reggie and the Full Effect, as well as the keyboardist for The Get Up Kids, has released a timely monster video for the track “37″ off his 2013 effort, No Country For Old Musicians.

The video patterns with the song very well, including hating on Bruno Mars. The monster joins a band and goes on tour, and it’s hilarious, as predicted. Check the video out below and let us know what you think.

And don’t forget that Reggie is going to embark on one crazy good tour in …

Rick Ross Streams “If They Knew” Featuring K Michelle

Keeping himself in the headlines while fans await the release of his new album, Rick Ross has shared yet another Hood Billionaire promotional single.

“If They Knew” is the kind of beat Rick Ross fans wait all year to hear the boss ride. It’s a fun and driving production, with a wonderful blend of instrumentation backing Ross’ gruff vocal delivery. The presence of K Michelle on the hook helps raise the track to a level of infectiousness the radio will embrace, but the verses would be just as strong without her accompaniment. You can stream the track below:…

The Dead Weather Share New Song “Buzzkill(er)”

Last winter we got the pleasure of hearing a few new tunes from The Dead Weather. Both “Rough Detective” and “Open Up (That’s Enough)” proved to be standout tracks from the band, and now with a third this year, entitled “Buzzkill(er),” they continue to pull out surprises.

The track is perfect example of Alison Mosshart’s range in vocals and her ability to make us beg for more with every song. The guitar riffs replicate the motion of a buzz-saw or one that makes two people pull back and forth. It’s a classic tune, so check it out …

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 …

Having just kicked off their fall tour, we thought it would be rad for you guys to get the inside scoop on these folks. If you find yourself leaning towards lyrically angsty rock and roll, their music is definitely for you.…

Miss Fortune Dropped From Sumerian Records Due To Frontman’s Arrest

When you are a fan of an artist or musician, you’d like to think they are impervious to human flaws. Unfortunately, they are not infallible. Apparently Miss Fortune‘s frontman, Mikey Sawyer, was arrested October 24 for domestic violence.

Before the situation with their frontman was known, they let fans know they would not be making it to The Word Alive‘s ‘Get Real’ Tour. Shortly after they made that announcement though, Sumerian Records announced they had dropped Miss Fortune from their roster. This prompted another statement from the band, confirming that their frontman was in jail.…
