Snarl (Parker Cannon of The Story So Far) Stream Debut Demo

A few days back, The Story So Far’s Parker Cannon took to social media to announce the existence of Snarl, a hardcore side project that he planned to soon make a reality. We were as eager as anyone to hear what this new undertaking had to offer, and I’m pleased to report that after only two days, we have our answer. You can stream Snarl’s debut demo, via Bandcamp, after the break.

Featuring Cannon on guitar, bass, and vocals, and Cam Mcbain on drums, this gritty four-song attempt is a mere 5 minutes in length, and a far …

‘V/H/S Viral’ Red-Band Trailer: Third Time May Be The Bloody Charm

Following suit from its predecessors, V/H/S Viral compiles short horror films from a myriad of up and coming directors. Tied together loosely by a main story about teenagers stumbling upon some horrific videotapes, the third entry in the V/H/S series seems to amp up the insanity, gore, violence, and body horror. Releasing on October 23 via VOD and with a limited theatrical run on November 21, this venture into the horror compilation includes entries from directors such as Justin Benson (Resolution), Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead), Todd Lincoln (The Apparition), Aaron Moorhead (…

Tycho Awake

Get Lost In Tycho’s Video For “See (Official Performance Cut)”

San Francisco producer Tycho has released a wonderful new video for the track “See (Official Performance Cut).”

Featuring the band members as living and moving constellations, the video was assembled using kinetic technology. Watch as the beautiful sounds of the track weave in and out of the cosmos, instilling images of geometrical bliss coupled with the music transpiring in front of you. Trust me, this video is an experience.

As well as releasing the video, a long string of tour dates have been announced, ranging from September all the way to the end of the year.

Little May Are Sure To Make Pet Lovers Cry With Their Video For “Dust”

We haven’t featured Little May in quite some time; since their gorgeous video for “Hide” hit last year, to be exact. That’s entirely on us, but the Sydney-based trio have a brand new video out now for another beautiful track, entitled “Dust,” which will be featured on their forthcoming self-titled EP, due out October 14 through Capitol Records.

The video, which premiered over at The Fader, is a tearjerker — primarily for pet/animal lovers, but really for anyone that has a heart. The loss of a pet is never easy, and that’s something that’s beautifully portrayed in …

Queen Forever

New Queen Anthology To Feature Unreleased Freddie Mercury And Michael Jackson Duet

The announcement of Queen‘s latest anthology release, titled Queen Forever, comes with the intriguing surprise of new, previously unreleased music from the band featuring original frontman Freddie Mercury.

Amongst these new tracks is a song featuring Michael Jackson — yes, Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson performing a duet on a Queen track. The collaboration is titled “There Must Be More to Life Than This.” The anthology, which is set to be released November 11, also features other unheard Queen numbers, including “Let Me in Your Heart Again,” an unfinished track featuring Mercury from the band’s sessions for 1984′s …

UTG PREMIERE: Nemes – “Black Streak”

With a little more than a month to go before their long awaited full-length debut arrives in stores, New England folk rock outfit Nemes have joined forces with UTG to share a brand new song.

It’s hard to know the right way to describe the sound of Nemes to someone who has never encountered their unique take on music. The best explanation I have been able to put together is asking people to imagine what would happen if My Morning Jacket had a baby with Mumford And Sons while listening to acoustic-driven emo music from the early millennium. I know …

WATCH: New JLo Video For “Booty” Proves She Is Still A Goddess

According to Wikipedia, Jennifer Lopez is 45 years old. But that can’t be right — she hasn’t aged a day. JLo’s new video for the single “Booty,” is as sexual and sensational as the JLo we fell in love with decades ago. It’s apparent, by the 2.3 million views in less than 24 hours, that this pop Goddess has found the elixir of life and she just hasn’t told us yet.

All jokes of how amazing JLo looks aside, the duet single with Iggy Azalea is infectious as pop music can be. The hook of “big, big booty…butchu got a …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Tusk’ Will Stay With You Long After The Credits Roll

Film: Tusk
Starring: Justin Long, Michael Parks
Directed by: Kevin Smith

Kevin Smith has gone full walrus with his latest feature, and the world of horror may never be the same.

Wallace (Justin Long) is a grown man-child who makes his living hosting a podcast with his best friend called the ‘Not-See Party.’ Their show’s premise is never explained, but suffice to say they spend a lot of time watching and commenting on ridiculous videos they find online. One clip, which features a young man accidentally harming himself in an incredibly embarrassing way, inspires Wallace to travel from his home …

The Rural Alberta Advantage Stream “Runners In The Night”

The Rural Alberta Advantage, a wildly underrated act, have an album of the year contender on their hands with Mended With Gold, their newest full-length which comes out on September 30.

Following two fantastic singles in “Terrified” and “On The Rocks,” the band are currently streaming a third, entitled “Runners in the Night,” over at Stereogum. The newest taste of Mended With Gold is probably the most straightforward we’ve been offered yet but it should have easy crossover appeal for fans of modern day indie-folk and earlier genre pioneers such as Bob Dylan …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Maze Runner’ Is Surprisingly Good

Film: The Maze Runner
Starring: Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario
Directed by: Wes Ball

Inability to end without setting up a sequel aside, The Maze Runner is the best YA adaptation to hit the screen in years.

I have never read The Maze Runner, but I am a firm believer that a film is truly good then I should not need to be familiar with its source material in order to appreciate the adventure it has to share. The Maze Runner begins with a boy being lifted on an elevator from deep underground to the Earth’s surface. He’s cold, wet, …

UTG INTERVIEW: Director Ned Benson Discusses ‘The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby’

To cast both Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy in your first feature film you’ve got to be a pretty special director, and after seeing The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them, I can vouch for the fact that Ned Benson has some pretty special traits to him as a filmmaker.

His first feature film, The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby, is split into three parts – HimHer, and Them – each exploring different viewpoints and perspectives as to why the relationship between Conor Ludlow (McAvoy) and Eleanor Rigby (Chastain) failed. It portrays their relationship in both a raw
