One tactic that seems to be doing well for artists is for them to premiere a new song exclusively on their Battle Of The Bands page. This is a tactic that the band has decided to take advantage of, and they’ve revealed a brand new song titled “Preach.” You can give the song a quick listen by heading right on over to their Battle Of The Bands page.

Like many other bands out there right now, It Lives, It Breathes are currently fighting for a spot on this year’s Warped Tour through Ernie Ball’s Battle Of The Bands. One tactic that seems to be doing well for artists is for them to premiere a new song exclusively on their Battle Of The Bands page. This is a tactic that the band has decided to take advantage of, and they’ve revealed a brand new song titled “Preach.” You can give the song a quick listen by heading right on over to their Battle Of The Bands page.

If you are already a fan of ILIB, then this song will be a nice treat. The song is similar in style to previous tracks they’ve released and has a catchy chorus. The fact that the band has released a new song doesn’t necessarily mean they plan on dropping a new album, but if they are planning on it “Preach” would make a solid lead single.

One album undoubtedly at the top of many of these lists is Bruce Springsteen’s latest offering, American Beauty, which hits shelves exclusively this weekend. The 12″ EP will feature four unreleased songs by The Boss, one of which, titled “Hurry Up Sundown,” can now be streamed over at NPR.

Electrifying and straightforward, this sneak peek showcases the Rock N’ Roll legend’s versatility (he plays every instrument on the track except the drums), and will likely sit well with long-time fans. Comment below and let us know if you’ll be picking up a copy of American Beauty.

Supposedly the video is based on real events (“It’s obviously based off of real events,” Ferreira said. “People always ask me questions about certain things, and it’s kind of like my response. I think actions speak louder than words.”), which certainly seems to be true looking at her past record and arrest for drug use last fall. I don’t recall Ferreira ever dancing in an interrogation room before, though. But then again, I wouldn’t put it past her.

The single takes more of a sodden pop route, tracing heartbroken lyrics out in a pretty produced, anthemic piece of sweeping vocals and sturdy guitar work. All in all, it sounds in line with her other work while ditching some of the old hooks.

The album, titled I Never Learn, is slated to come out May 5 via LL/Atlantic Records. So far we’ve also heard “Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone” and “No Rest For The Wicked

The album, titled I Never Learn, is slated to come out May 5 via LL/Atlantic Records. So far we’ve also heard “Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone” and “No Rest For The Wicked” (the latter of which has a bummer of a music video), both of which cover her spectrum of sounds. Looks like we can expect another solid LP from the Swedish singer.

Go ahead and give the single a listen here. The full tracklist for I Never Learn can be seen below.

I Never Learn Tracklist:
01. I Never Learn
02. No Rest for the Wicked
03. Just Like a Dream
04. Silverline
05. Gunshot
06. Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone
07. Never Gonna Love Again

There are some clean vocals as well as unclean, but neither overwhelm the other. If you like what you hear, you can pick it up on iTunes.

Now that Kick Ass 2 has faded from the biggest disappointment of 2013 to being just another letdown from last year, Chloe Grace-Moretz is ready to return to the big screen with a story that is likely to stir emotions around the globe.

Directed by R.J. Cutler (Nashville) and based on the novel of the same name by Gayle Forman, If I Stay is an upcoming dramatic teen romance that puts Moretz front and center. She stars as a bright, talented teen in Portland who falls into a coma after a car accident kills the rest of her family. Moretz’s character awakens at the scene of the accident – or at least she thinks she does – and soon realizes that, in reality, she has entered into a coma. The doctors do their best to save her, but ultimately she must make a choice: Fight to survive and live a life completely alone, or let go and embrace death and follow the rest of her family into the beyond. You can view the film’s first trailer below:

The setup for If I Stay is fairly straightforward, which makes the sly way the plot is presented in the trailer all the more exciting. I was almost moved to tears by the two minute mark, and I can promise you right now a full flood will likely fall from my eyes when the full feature is released on August 22.

Official synopsis:

Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz) thought the hardest decision she would ever face would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at Juilliard or follow a different path to be with the love of her life, Adam (Jamie Blackley). But what should have been a carefree family drive changes everything in an instant, and now her own life hangs in the balance. Caught between life and death for one revealing day, Mia has only one decision left, which will not only decide her future but her ultimate fate. “If I Stay” is based on the best-selling novel of the same name.

On Monday, April 14, Taking Back Sunday performed an exclusive performance at Revolution in Amityville, NY. To gain entrance to the event, fans pre-ordered the limited vinyl pressing of their brand new album Happiness Is. The event was limited to 500 die-hard fans who were able to meet their hometown favorites and hear the special acoustic set.

Looney Tunes CDs, the same Long Island record store to bring in other UTG favorites Bayside and I Am The Avalanche graciously orchestrated and hosted the event alongside Club Loaded.

Check below the jump for some photos from the show, some insight into the performance, and Taking Back Sunday’s remaining tour dates.

TBS-6

“I love you too, strange woman,” replies guitarist John Nolan after finishing up their first song, “Flicker, Fade.” A strong single off the new album, it was the perfect way to open up the performance. The band carried on with some funny stories in between songs, as vocalist Adam Lazzara explained how he and Nolan used to trade identification to sneak into the very same venue they were performing in. Unfortunately, the “ID swap” didn’t work for Lazzara in Disneyland.

TBS-8

The guys brought it back to 2002 with “Timberwolves At New Jersey.” Next came “Faith (When I Let You Down),” jumping nearly a decade forward to the band’s original lineup reunion and self-titled album. At this point, one thing became apparent: although Taking Back Sunday’s entire catalog has something strong to offer, nothing beats the combination of John and Adam.

Hearing Nolan’s strong backup vocals was my favorite part of the experience. After performing a cover of Tom Petty’s “Yer So Bad,” Lazzara left the stage to give his buddy a chance to perform one of his older songs.

Watching John Nolan perform Straylight Run’s “Existentialism On Prom Night,” immediately brought me back to 2004. It is horrifying to come to terms with that record being 10 years old.

TBS

The duo reconvened to play another track off of Happiness Is entitled “Stood A Chance.” To wrap up the performance, the crowd sang along with “MakeDamnSure.”

The event went off without a hitch and was definitely an intimate hometown performance. Club Loaded and Looney Tunes have always worked hard to make sure they maintain quality events for their community.

If you were to ask me, my only complaint would be the set length. I think the boys could’ve done a little more than 45 minutes. That being said, I’m sure they had a lot of people to visit. Overall, the songs did sound terrific. I’m really looking forward to seeing them perform with a full band later this week.

TBS-2

Currently, Taking Back Sunday are on the road with The Used, Tonight Alive and Sleepwave. Keep an eye out for a photo set from one of the three nights at Best Buy Theater in New York City, coming to Under The Gun soon.

Remaining tour dates:

SAT 4/19/2014 SANDS BETHLEHEM PA

The Front Bottoms‘ bassist, Tom Warren, is effectively Big Neil, and UTG is proud to bring you the debut track from his creative output.

Reigning from Demarest, New Jersey, Big Neil describes their start as something done “as a way to kill time.” Their first album was self-released in 2011, but an upcoming EP, Do Puppies Dream Of Herding

The Front Bottoms have exploded in the past year, and their success is due in no small part to a tremendous publicity campaign and an infectious live act that goes past core band members Brian Sella and Matt Uychich. The Front Bottoms‘ bassist, Tom Warren, is effectively Big Neil, and UTG is proud to bring you the debut track from his creative output.

Reigning from Demarest, New Jersey, Big Neil describes their start as something done “as a way to kill time.” Their first album was self-released in 2011, but an upcoming EP, Do Puppies Dream Of Herding Sheep?, will be released by Connecticut kings Seagreen Records in 2014. Sounding like a modern mix of The Replacements and melancholy 70s rock, Big Neil deserves your ears on “Never Had.”

Check out the stream after the break.

Summer 2014 Release Set For Woody Allen’s ‘Magic In The Moonlight’ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/16/summer-2014-release-set-for-woody-allens-magic-in-the-moonlight/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/16/summer-2014-release-set-for-woody-allens-magic-in-the-moonlight/#comments Wed, 16 Apr 2014 14:51:13 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1110546 Sony Pictures Classics has revealed a July 25, 2014 release date for Woody Allen’s Magic In The Moonlight. It will be his fourth summertime release in as many years, following 2013′s award-winning Blue Jasmine.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly for a new feature, Allen shared some insight on Magic‘s origins by informing the writer “I had it on a piece of notepaper in my drawer for ages…I knew it was a good plot, but I kept seeing it as a contemporary thing and something about that just didn’t smell right to me.

Sony Pictures Classics has revealed a July 25, 2014 release date for Woody Allen’s Magic In The Moonlight. It will be his fourth summertime release in as many years, following 2013′s award-winning Blue Jasmine.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly for a new feature, Allen shared some insight on Magic‘s origins by informing the writer “I had it on a piece of notepaper in my drawer for ages…I knew it was a good plot, but I kept seeing it as a contemporary thing and something about that just didn’t smell right to me. Then when it occurred to me it could be set in the south of France in the 1920s, all of a sudden it just felt good.”

The plot of Magic In The Moonlight is being kept under wraps for the time being, but the story is said to focus on a man (Firth) who attempts to expose a phoney mystic (Stone), only to end up falling for her. It’s a new angle for Allen to take as far as storytelling is concerned, but unlikely lovers, not to mention those starring actors with large age gaps (there is a 28-year age difference between Firth in Stone in real-life) is certainly nothing new for the filmmaker.

We expect a trailer for Magic In The Moonlight will surface in the next month, but we can not confirm that information at this time. There is talk the film may also open Cannes, but again – it’s only a rumor for the time being. You can view a still from the EW article below.

Final ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Trailer Will Kick Your Ass http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/16/final-x-men-days-of-future-past-trailer-will-kick-your-ass/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/16/final-x-men-days-of-future-past-trailer-will-kick-your-ass/#comments Wed, 16 Apr 2014 14:20:24 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1110541 As much as we love a good X-Men movie, we will be the first to admit the promotional efforts for Days Of Future Past have left us a little on the fence about the team’s upcoming adventure.

As much as we love a good X-Men movie, we will be the first to admit the promotional efforts for Days Of Future Past have left us a little on the fence about the team’s upcoming adventure. That is, until we saw the film’s final trailer.

Clocking in at just under three minutes in length, which is more than enough time to make your eyes water with tears of pure joy, the third trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past focuses almost all its energy on the larger-than-life action sequences that have largely been kept in the shadows up to this point. Also, sentinels. Lots and lots of sentinels. You can view the trailer below:

I could write about this all morning, breaking down several new shots revealed in the clip above, but the one that captures my imagination the most is witnessing Magneto lift what appears to be an entire stadium (only to drop it on a highway mere moments later).

Up...

Up…

...And down

…And down

What could be happening on the highway to warrant such a response? A sentinel? An ARMY of sentinels? Maybe just a pissed off Peter Dinklage? Also, how will the destruction porn of this feature compare to that of last summer’s Man Of Steel?

All that, as well as the final verdict on whether or not having two of every character is awesome or incredibly silly, will be answered when X-Men: Days of Future Past rolls into theaters May 23. Expect a full review to appear on UTG earlier the same day.
