Celldweller Releases Epic New Song, “Down To Earth”

Detroit, Michigan’s electronic rock heavyweight Celldweller is back in action with a hard-hitting new track from Love, the second installment of his End of an Empire record. The new release, End of an Empire (Chapter 02: Love), is due out on Dec. 5 via FiXT Music.

Kurt Cobain 2012

Kurt Cobain Documentary, Featuring Hours Of Unreleased Music And Art, To Be Released In 2015

Earlier this month, a “new” mixtape emerged, curated by the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. Entitled Montage of Heck, it featured a mixture of Nirvana demos, random radio bits, music from bands like the Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel, and, in true Cobain fashion, toilets flushing and people vomiting.

This mixtape’s title will lend itself to the first “fully authorized” Kurt Cobain documentary, to be released in 2015 on HBO. Directed by Brett Morgen, the film credits Frances Bean, Cobain’s daughter, as an executive producer and features hours of previously unseen home videos as well as unreleased …

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Come Wind – “Come & Go”

In a display of pure aural and visual sagacity, Canton Ohio’s Come Wind have released a stripped down and utterly natural video performance of their song “Come & Go.” Featuring New Philadelphia High School’s Delphian Chorale, the video shows an essence of depth and beauty few musicians can manage to muster at any level. It’s a simplistically brillant homage to the craft of songmanship.

“Come & Go” is the second video to be released from the band’s EP of the same name.

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Penguins Of Madagascar’ Offers Fun & Adventure For Everyone

Film: Penguins Of Madagascar
Starring: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller
Directed by: Eric Darnell, Simon J. Smith

Several years after first appearing as lovable side characters in Madagascar, the flightless birds better known as the Penguins Of Madagascar have finally been given a hilarious film all their own.

Spinoffs are tricky. On the one hand, these features exist to allow beloved characters from popular films a chance to shine away from the large shadow of the original work’s leads. On the other hand, these features also help build cinematic universes, which in 2014 is something every major studio wants to …

It’s no secret that the eastern portion of the United States is currently being pummeled by snow. Even in normal winter conditions the roads can be treacherous for commuters as well as bands attempting to travel for a tour. We’ve already seen a handful of accidents this fall, so it’s no surprise that The Word Alive have made the decision to cancel a show due to bad weather.

The band announced a few hours ago that their stop in Worcester, Massachusetts would have to be canceled because of the weather forecast. They felt it was too unsafe for themselves, the …

Such Gold Premiere Strange Music Video For “Faced”

Melodic punk rockers Such Gold released their passionate new album, The New Sidewalk, via Razor & Tie Records, earlier this month, with much praise here at UTG.

The band has released a music video (via Fuse) for “Faced,” the lead single which was streamed alongside the initial album announcement. The video is rather weird and thrilling, showing an old man taking pills after a disgruntled sleep, followed by paint falling from the top of the ceiling down the four-walled room. There are also live shots of the band who have the same problem, yet they continue to …
