ILoveMakonnen & Drake Go Up On A “Tuesday” In New Music Video

ILoveMakonnen and Drake created one of the most off-kilter bangers of the year with “Tuesday,” so it’s only fitting the track would be graced with a music video to match. Featuring scenes of random individuals’ everyday lives intertwined with the duo spitting their lines in the club surrounded by their squad and plenty of beautiful women, the visuals give a glimpse of just how different a Tuesday night is for Drake and his label’s rising star compared to the rest of the world’s population.

Chief Keef Dropped From Interscope Records

Just two months after Trinidad James was reportedly dropped by the folks at Def Jam, another hot name from the 2012 rap game has been released from his major label contract.

News is breaking this afternoon that Chief Keef has been dropped from Interscope Records. The label, which initially gave Keef a deal worth $3 million, have yet to comment on the news. The rapper, on the other hand, was quick to confirm the rumors by uploading a screenshot of a text conversation with a friend he had shortly after the news broke. You can view that image at the …

Sad News: ‘The Conjuring 2′ Moves To 2016

James Wan, director of The Conjuring, seems to have too much on his plate for the foreseeable future because of post-production on Fast & Furious 7.

Annabelle, the spinoff based upon a doll from The Conjuring, has now made $166 million dollars worldwide on a $6.5 million dollar budget, cementing the importance of the franchise to its financiers.

Bring Me The Horizon Debut A New Sound With “Drown”

Bring Me The Horizon have spent the last few years evolving, and the results have been evident in every piece of music they released. Their latest is no exception, and in fact might be the biggest change in sound the band has delivered to date.

“Drown” arrived online early this morning following an accidental reveal by the band’s label. The song boasts a very straightforward rock sound, with absolutely no screaming to be found anywhere in its four-minute runtime. Instead, Sykes sings about holes in his soul and how the weight of the world is increasingly hard to hold up. …

The Simpsons’ Halloween Tribute To Stanley Kubrick Is Perfect

A number of people on our staff may be closer to 30 than 20 these days, but that has not prevented us from maintaining a strong dedication to The Simpsons. Their adventures have kept us entertained our entire lives in a very literal sense, and this week they won us over once again by paying tribute to the great Stanley Kubrick.

The Simpsons aired the 25th installment of their Treehouse of Horror series last Sunday, and per usual the episode featured a collection of short stories that parodied the world of killers, chillers, and thrillers. The middle segment, which …

Jessica Pratt Announces New Album ‘On Your Own Love Again’

If you love folk, specifically the gentle sound of classical guitar playing, you likely spent much of 2012 and the following years giving Jessica Pratt‘s self-titled debut a whole lot of play time. Now the California-based singer-songwriter is returning in 2015 with a follow-up, at long last. The album, titled On Your Own Love Again, drops January 27 via Drag City. Pre-orders are ongoing.

Her austere playing and dark, whimsicle wanderings will sound similar to “Night Faces” and “Dreams” off her last release, likely because they were recorded at home over the past two years. According to the press …

Tesla Rossa Wishes

UTG PREMIERE: Tesla Rossa – “Wishes”

Nashville’s indie rock trio Tesla Rossa is a brilliant and bombastic example of everything that’s right about rock and roll music. The new self-titled record contains songs with utter sex appeal, songs with drive, songs with blistering distortion, and songs with the softest and most humble melodies. It’s an effort worthy of modern rock ‘n’ roll’s best — swaying and sensitive enough for this decade’s version of Arctic Monkeys and loud enough to be a product of Jack White.

Today, Under The Gun is premiering the band’s new song off the record, “Wishes.” A lo-fi and entrancing number, “Wishes” embodies …

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: The Weekend Classic – “Dread The Weather”

Several weeks ago we brought you an extensive introduction to fast-rising Indiana pop-rock outfit The Weekend Classic, and today it’s our great honor to assist the band in sharing their first music video with the world.

I have spent a lot of time over the last month listening to The Weekend Classic, which is kind of amazing when you consider the fact they have only released two songs to date. The debut single took us by surprise, and it has continued to win over new fans every single day since its initial release. I think that trend will only …
