You can give it a listen by taking a look below the break.

There are eleven tracks on The Blackest Beautiful, and so far we’ve heard two reinvented tracks from it. We will likely be hearing more of these over the next few months, so be sure to check in again soon.

Suicide Silence will be releasing their first album with Eddie Hermida, who took the reins as the frontman of the band after Mitch Lucker passed away. Fans knew the group would be releasing a new album, it was just a matter of when. They finally confirmed some details for the album, and it’s incredibly touching.

First, they confirmed the release date. Their new album will be hitting stores everywhere July 15. Second, the title of the album. The band has decided to name the album after a set of lyrics Lucker had written down before his passing. You Can’t Stop Me will be Suicide Silence’s fourth studio album. You can read a brief statement by the group below the jump.

It’s hard to know what to expect from this album, but it’s likely to be an emotional experience for everyone involved.

The long and short of it is this, Mitch left behind a set of lyrics with the title ‘You Can’t Stop Me‘. This gave us chills, to say the least, and we knew we had the title and title track. This filled us with inspiration for writing sessions to empower us and empower you, the supporters of Suicide Silence.

We as a band (and Steve Evetts) worked tirelessly on this record and I’m not gonna say we can’t wait for you to hear it. I’m gonna tell you that you have to hear it. You have to sit and listen from start to finish.

I’m not gonna tell you this is our best record we’ve ever done. I’m gonna tell you this is the record we care more about than any record we’ve ever done. This is a record that we fought, bled, sweated, and fucking cried over.

Go pick up a copy and turn this sucker up to eleven.

We couldn’t be more excited.

Thank you all for supporting Suicide Silence.

Australian producer, Flume, doubled the single’s runtime with all sorts of new (massive) electronic elements leaving Lorde’s lush vocal arrangements as the only truly recognizable aspect. Whereas some remixes hardly stray from the source material, Flume gave the Pure Heroine opener an entirely fresh makeover that will be sure to have fans of Lorde and EDM alike shaking their asses.

“Sail” was originally released as part of MGK’s birthday celebration. A free stream and download of the track can be found here.

We do not know when Machine Gun Kelly will deliver more new material, but we assume we will see at least a mixtape release before the end of the year. Stay tuned.

Someone call the band Aqua and let them know a big fat paycheck will [most likely] be on the way soon. Everyone’s favorite plastic doll is coming to the big screen in the not too distant future.

Sony Pictures, Mattel and Parkes + MacDonald/Image Nation announced plans today to bring Barbie to life in a live-action comedy. The film will be written by Jenny Bicks (What a Girl Wants) and produced by husband-and-wife team of Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald. The plot is said to be ‘focused’ on the iconic doll, but no additional information is available at this time. Sony sees the film as a global franchise and plans to go into production by the end of the year.

Given the gigantic success of The Lego Movie it’s a little surprising to see Mattel abandon the world of animation for the big screen debut of Barbie. That said, I would think making this film with the doll at the center of everything would be a far better idea than exploring what would happen if Barbie were a real person, but stranger/worse things have certainly been brought to the big screen. They let Jamie Kennedy star in a sequel to The Mask, after all. If they do decide to make a film set in a world where Barbie is a real person, however, let’s just hope Valeria Lukyanova does not get the part. Unless someone wants to make a racist Barbie movie, which I am entirely ready to see.

Here’s a free idea for Sony: Make Jingle All The Way, only with two parents trying to find the perfect Barbie to make their child love them again. It doesn’t have to be set around the holidays, but I doubt Mattel would want to pass up the opportunity to roll out a line of exclusive holiday/movie-themed toys.

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea released her new album yesterday, and during her morning press blitz she stopped by Hot97 studios in New York City for a quick promotional chat. It was the kind of typical radio PR stunt setup you would expect from an artist with major label backing, but things quickly became unique when Iggy dropped a bomb regarding the way certain fans treat her at shows.

“…I still have to have barriers even if it’s like 200 people because people try to finger me.”

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea released her new album yesterday, and during her morning press blitz she stopped by Hot97 studios in New York City for a quick promotional chat. It was the kind of typical radio PR stunt setup you would expect from an artist with major label backing, but things quickly became unique when Iggy dropped a bomb regarding the way certain fans treat her at shows.

“I had to stop [crowdsurfing]…” Azalea said. “I’m only doing like 2000-seaters, but I still have to have barriers even if it’s like 200 people because people try to finger me.” She later added that she has begun wearing tights and two pairs of underwear on stage for protection, which seems to be doing the trick – for now.

As revealing as all of this is, the most interesting tidbit might be that Azalea believes female fans are more often the culprits behind the sexual assault. “Girls will try to do it more than guys ’cause girls think it’s cool, like, ’We both got vaginas, it’s fine.’ Doesn’t make it OK.”

I could not have said it better myself.

Here’s some more of Iggy’s thoughts from the interview:

I will get lurk tweets for like a week before my show, like “I’m about to go to the Iggy Azalea show and I’m going to finger her,” and I’ll see it and be like, please don’t! That’s a violation. I don’t actually like that stuff.

Like, they think I’m real slutty, like “Oh, she got a song called ’Pussy,’ I know what she wants. She wants these two fingers.” Why would I want a stranger to ever finger me? Buying my album for $12 doesn’t mean you get to finger me when I come to your city.

It’s not hard to understand how this image of Azalea has spread throughout pop culture. Interviewers around the world have created entire features on her without ever mentioning her thoughts on songwriting or the industry in general. They see someone willing to expose their sex life to the world and pounce, forgetting those individuals are people as well. Even though they’re journalists they still feed the illusion she is here to be your fantasy instead of an artist.

The New Classic, Iggy’s latest creation, is available now. I know I spent this entire article discussing her image, but the bigger story should be (and is) her talent.

It’s that time of year again!

Today marks the beginning of the 2014 Independent Film Festival Boston, and per usual UTG is on the scene with two writers who will be bringing you reviews and insight into this year’s screenings. There are over 100 films playing this year, but you and I both know there is no way in hell anyone has the time or physical ability to see them all. So, in an attempt to lessen the frustration caused by pouring over schedules and choosing between conflicting features, we have compiled a list of six films you absolutely must make time to see. These are the films that people will be talking about, studios will be buying, and people will be committing to memory for years to come. Let’s dive in, shall we?



Skeleton Twins


skeleton twins iff boston

Saturday Night Live alums Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader reunite for a sibling journey to reexamine where their lives went wrong after they coincidentally cheat death on the same day. This involves revisiting past relationships and old wounds, as well as recognizing the faults in themselves, and it looks to be told through the painfully relatable yet somehow still hilarious dramatic style that Wiig has built a career on in recent years. Ty Burrell, Luke Wilson, and Kathleen Rose Perkins also star. (Screens April 24 @ Brattle Theater 9:30 PM)James Shotwell



Ping Pong Summer

Following on the thematic heels of last year’s runaway indie favorite The Way Way Back, Ping Pong Summer offers a nostalgic coming of age story that takes place on the shores of the Atlantic ocean during the late 1980s. There’s ping pong, break dancing, and Susan Sarandon acting far more limber than any of her other recent work would lead you to believe. I am going to go out on a limb and guess you can put together how the story ends well before the halfway point in the film, but movies like this are more about the journey than the destination, and for what it’s worth this journey looks like one people will want to take again and again. (Screens April 25 @Somerville Theater 9:30 PM)James Shotwell



Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon


1583

Mike Myers, the man behind Austin Powers and The Love Guru, directs his first documentary about the famed music manager, Shep Gordon. The film follows Shep’s days of excess in the 70s up into his Buddhist teachings/learning today with the help from many celebrities’ accounts of the man, the myth and the legend. Alice Cooper, Michael Douglas, Willie Nelson, Sylvester Stallone and Emeril Lagasse all lend their personal experiences with Shep to develop an image of the man along with archival footage to support those accounts. If this film is as foul-mouthed and hilarious as I have heard from rumblings at other fests, then consider me in a seat with my eyes open and mind attentive. (Screens April 27 @ Sommerville Theater 1:00 PM)Sam Cohen



Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter


13891-1

Have you ever watched a film and been totally convinced that the fictional events that happen are real? No? Well in Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim) stars as the titular character who is totally convinced that the events that conspired in the seminal Coen Brothers classic Fargo are real. So real that she runs from her mundane life in Tokyo in search for the buried satchel of money that is mentioned in the film all the way in Minnesota. I can imagine that the film will function as a story about a woman outside of her element while also being a study on how obsessions become realities in some cases. Sign me up for what sounds to be one of the weirdest films at the festival this year. (Screens April 27th @ Brattle Theater 6:00 PM)Sam Cohen



The Sacrament

I love a good cult movie. Who doesn’t? For his latest feature, filmmaker Ti West has channeled the spirit of a Vice TV news team for a found footage adventure that looks both engrossing and incredibly unsettling. A small film crew is sent to a remote location to capture a cult on camera and things go horribly awry. Whether or not the final results are as riveting as the trailer suggests remains to be seen, but if the execution is on par with the rest of West’s work we may be looking at an instant ‘shaky cam’ classic. (Screens April 28 @ Brattle Theater 9:45 PM)James Shotwell



The Double

Richard Ayoade, actor in both The Watch and the popular British show The IT Crowd, rounds up a cast including Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska, Chris O’Dowd and Sally Hawkins for his trippy sophomore feature film directorial effort. The film follows Eisenberg’s Simon who works as a clerk for a shady government agency and lacks the gut to approach Wasikowska’s Hannah for a date. Things take a turn for the weird when a man named James, who is Simon’s doppelganger, shows up with his infinite charm and throws a wrench into Simon’s life. With visual influences that look very akin to what Terry Gilliam has produced, The Double is a darkly comic tale about Simon becoming more assertive and taking back what is his from his doppelganger.

Motionless In White spent the majority of 2013 on the road, but as the year was winding down they began to open up about plans to enter the studio once more. 2014 arrived and not long after the group tucked themselves away for a three-month creation period that has produced a new record which will arrive this September under the name Reincarnate.

At this time there is no additional information available about Motionless In White’s new album, but given its title I would not be surprised if the band returned to a sound similar to their earlier releases (as opposed to the electronic tendencies of their most recent album). We have no idea when a single will find its way online.

As far as plans for the remainder of the year are concerned, Motionless In White will next be found performing all summer long on the Vans Warped Tour. They will likely take a brief break in August when that run wraps up, but will then hit the road again in time for the album release a month later. We’ll bring additional details as soon as more information becomes available.

Over the past few months the group has been able to showcase their unique sound by previewing several stellar tracks off their debut full-length, Loom, but as of today, fans can finally enjoy the release in its entirety. Give it a spin by heading over to Stereogum.
