Our Speakers Were Blowing Up All Night Because Killer Mike & El-P Leaked ‘RTJ2′

Killer Mike and El-P don’t typically play by the rules. The dynamic tag-team are on another level within the rap game and we’ve simply given up trying to understand how they consistently raise the bar for their peers in the genre.

The duo’s followup to last year’s unreal debut was set to release via Mass Appeal in just four days’ time on October 28, but late last night, they decided “Aw, fuck it. We can’t wait any longer.” Thus, we’ve been graced with the ability to download the epicness that is RTJ2, for free. Featuring guest spots from Rage …

REVIEW: Vision The Kid & Tru – ‘Somewhere In A Dark City’

Artist: Vision The Kid & Tru
Album: Somewhere In A Dark City
Genre: Hip-Hop

Minneapolis tag-team, rapper Vision The Kid and producer Tru, joined forces roughly two years ago to combine their talents and create the best material that their capabilities would allow. The result is this year’s Somewhere In A Dark City, a 14-track hip-hop album that swings for the seats with impressive form — (excuse the baseball metaphor; I’ve been enveloped in the postseason/Fall Classic). Akin to the works of Macklemore and the lesser known and under-appreciated Common Market, Vision The Kid uses Tru’s excellent production as …

Cosby Release Video For Newest Single, “Heartracer”

This has nothing to do with ridiculous sweaters or Jell-O.

Virginia-based brothers Chris and Chip Cosby only formed their band two years ago, but Cosby have already released a healthy catalogue of music in that short period of time.

Most recently: their newest single, entitled “Heartracer.” A fun, poppy, synth-driven, indie-rock track in the vein of M83 and Phoenix, “Heartracer” is a great place to start with Cosby if you’ve yet to check out their work. The accompanying visuals explore some of the ’80s-esque vibes found in the song, with an arcade, plenty of neon and even …

Dayseeker To Release Deluxe Reissue Of ‘What It Means To Be Defeated’

Last year the post hardcore outfit Dayseeker released their debut full-length effort, What It Means To Be Defeated. Since then, the band has kept themselves busy with touring. Apparently that’s not all they’ve been up to though, which was made clear by their exciting announcement.

The band confirmed they are releasing a deluxe reissue of What It Means To Be Defeated next month. The reissue will feature four acoustic renditions of their popular songs. The original tracks have also been remixed and remastered. You can pre-order the album through InVogue Records’ MerchNow page.

In addition to the announcement, the …

Bring Me The Horizon To Release Another Single Next Week

It’s only been a couple of days since Bring Me The Horizon premiered their standalone single, “Drown,” but it seems they are poised to drop another one on us much sooner than expected. Frontman Oli Sykes tweeted earlier this evening that the band will release a new song titled “Don’t Look Down” next week. You can read his tweet below the jump.

Though it’s unlikely the band will be releasing a new album this year, the fact that they are releasing two songs right in a row is very exciting. I know I’m looking forward to hearing it …

Of Mice & Men Release Music Video For “Feels Like Forever”

Metalcore kings Of Mice & Men have been on the road non-stop and releasing singles since their latest record, Restoring Force, dropped via Rise Records this past year. Who would’ve known that this record would jettison the band to mainstream success to the point of opening for Linkin Park on their upcoming European tour?

The band has released yet another video, this time for their latest single entitled “Feel Like Forever” which premiered on USA Today. The video shows the band performing inside a beatdown warehouse and singer Austin Carlile being submerged into deep water before coming back …

Marian Hill’s “Got It” and We Love It

We’re about as bummed as can be that we’re just now discovering Philadelphia’s Marian Hill. The electronic duo have soul and swagger for miles and it’s wholly evident on their fantastic new single, “Got It.”

Following their super smooth Play EP, Samantha Gongol and Jeremy Lloyd are back with a sultry, modern R&B jam that we’ve had on repeat for hours on end. Originally premiering over at Disco Naïveté last week, the track features the big, refreshing beats that were prominent on their last release, serving as a foundation for Gongol’s hypnotic vocal prowess and funky electronic elements that …

You know Halloween is close because the number of trailers for studio-backed horror features has been on the rise for several weeks. Today, it’s Insidious: Chapter 3 that finds its way onto our front page.

Set years prior to the events witnessed in the first two Insidious films, Insidious: Chapter 3 will tell the story of how gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) reluctantly agreed to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl (Stefanie Scott) who had been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
