UTG PREMIERE: Stream Zach Zeller & The Crooked Timbers’ Self-Titled Debut

Three long years ago, we featured California’s Zach Zeller & The Crooked Timbers with some early tracks from the still-budding band. We later premiered the debut self-titled album from frontman Zach Zeller’s other band, Belda Beast. Now, we’re thrilled to have the exclusive first stream of Zeller’s solo project turned full band’s self-titled debut as well. Zach Zeller & The Crooked Timbers will be officially released on August 1 through Around Town Collective.

In regards to the album, Zeller tells us, “We recorded the album at Origami Recording Lounge in Chico, CA (owned and operated by our keys …

Counterparts Stream ‘Tragedy Will Find Us’ In Full

Canadian melodic hardcore band Counterparts are streaming their Pure Noise Records debut Tragedy Will Find Us in full, ahead of its July 24 release date. Listen to the record below via Noisey.

Tragedy Will Find Us doubles down on the band’s technical hardcore elements found on previous full-lengths, The Current Will Carry Us and The Difference Between Hell And Home, while picking up the pace with more aggressive vocals, faster tempos from the first track, and occasional spoken word elements. Tragedy Will Find Us shows Counterparts shedding any excess and dovetailing perfectly into their niche sound with their …

Senses Fail Stream ‘Pull The Thorns From Your Heart’

Senses Fail have begun streaming their highly anticipated Pure Noise debut, Pull The Thorns From Your Heart, a full week ahead of its official June 30 release. Check it out below (via MerchNow), along with a track-by-track commentary courtesy of vocalist Buddy Nielsen.

“Music-wise, it’s heavy as fuck, and I think on another level, it’s very post-rocky,” Nielsen told Alternative Press back in March. “There are a lot of movements and space and fluidity to the music. I’m really proud of it musically. I’m really proud of it lyrically. It’s the most complete presentation of the band as …

We’re all friends here and the fact you’re making the existence of your sex soundtrack (or sex playlists) known is the first step toward really knowing yourself.

Everyone has their own preference when it comes to the music that accompanies their bursts of passion–be they one night stands with strangers or sensual encounters between lifelong partners–but no matter where you fall in the vast spectrum of active …

WRVTH

Stream WRVTH’s Spectacular Self-Titled Debut

The death metal masterminds of WRVTH (formerly Wrath of Vesuvius) have joined forces with Metal Sucks to begin streaming their brand new self-titled album in full.

While I’m usually hesitant to lean on bold proclamations, WRVTH is, without question, one of the best metal albums of the year. The Bay Area quartet’s stunning debut is both dynamically devastating and expertly refined, comprised of 11 pulse-pounding tracks that will almost certainly appease fans of Fallujah, All Shall Perish, and other shred-happy headbangers. Lush atmospherics share the stage with bone-crushing breaks and dizzying guitar solos, making for a delightfully unpredictable …

Citizen_-_Everybody_Is_Going_To_Heaven

Citizen Stream ‘Everybody Is Going To Heaven’

Though it was only yesterday we heard “Numb Yourself,” Citizen are streaming their sophomore LP Everybody Is Going To Heaven in full over at Spin. The album is also available digitally for pre-order on Bandcamp for 5 dollars.

Produced by Will Yip, the sophomore release from Citizen is as adventurous in sound as the previously released tracks have alluded to. Bringing heavy and melancholy, the album features heavy hitters like “Cement” and “Stain,” but also produce fantastic mid-tempo tracks like “Heaviside” and “Yellow Love.” Tracks like “My Favorite Color” and “Weave Me (Into Yr Sin)” truly show the band’s …

A follow-up to 2011’s ‘Ceremonials, the English outfit’s latest undertaking was recorded between London and Los Angeles with acclaimed producer Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Coldplay, Björk), and features guest spots from Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, Paul Epworth, Kid Harpoon, and John Hill.

Active Child Streams Gorgeous New LP, ‘Mercy’

Pat Grossi somehow manages to get better and better. I know practice makes perfect, but I probably called Active Child “perfect” a long time ago. Yet, here we are with Mercy, his newest LP, and it’s, uh, breathtaking.

Taking to Facebook to excitedly share the album’s stream, Grossi said: “POURED MY HEART AND SOUL INTO THIS ALBUM. I HOPE U CAN FEEL IT! MUCH LOVE.”

We can’t help but feel it. Grossi’s heart has always been evident in his music, and it’s much the same with Mercy, maybe more than ever. It’s poignant and vulnerable and it makes …

UTG PREMIERE: Attalus – ‘Into The Sea’

We recently wrote about Raleigh, NC’s Attalus, in which we raved a bit about their forthcoming album, Into The Sea. Set to release tomorrow, June 2, via Facedown Records, Attalus’ newest effort is a welcomed change of pace for the label and a monumental stride, not only for the band, but for rock music and its various sub-genres.

A 16-track concept epic, Into The Sea, as mentioned in our previous piece, should both appease and excite fans of The Receiving End Of Sirens, Emery, Thrice, and The Dear Hunter with meticulously layered instrumentation, dynamic vocals, unique storytelling …

Stream Holychild’s New Album and Succumb to the Power of Brat Pop

Los Angeles duo Holychild are set to release their debut full-length tomorrow, June 2, through Glassnote. Following sporadic single releases over the past couple of years and 2014′s Mindspeak EP, these two have been building up to something big, and that something is finally upon us: The Shape Of Brat Pop To Come.

This album calls for side ponytails and some serious gum smacking. It oozes brattitude (someone else has probably already coined that.) Frankly, I feel like this album is one I’d typically swear off, but I’m addicted. I can’t escape the huge synths, the massive beats, and …

Sins Divider

Sins (Joseph Milligan of Anberlin) Streams New Album, ‘Divider’

Ex-Anberlin guitarist Joseph Milligan has begun streaming his brand new album, Divider, under his longtime solo moniker, Sins. Check it out by following the jump below.

Catchy and calculated, Milligan’s latest undertaking is a straightforward alt-rock rager that will no doubt conjure fond memories of Anberlin’s heyday, which isn’t particularly surprising considering he was one of the group’s primary songwriters for well over a decade. If you like what you hear, sound off in the replies.
