Bane Announce North American Tour

Bane has been a staple of the hardcore scene for 19 years, but the band will soon say farewell as they have announced their upcoming LP Don’t Wait Up will be their last.

A string of tour dates has been announced to accompany the album’s release, with support coming from Turnstile and Take Offense. If you’re a fan of the band, you aren’t going to want to miss these shows because, well — you don’t know how many more chances you’re going to get. Don’t Wait Up officially hits stores on May 13, while pre-order packages are currently up at …


Bane Release Trailer for Final Album, ‘Don’t Wait Up’

Boston hardcore legends Bane released a trailer today for their upcoming album, Don’t Wait Up. The trailer, at least to longtime fans of the band, is very emotional, as they chronicle what it was like putting together their final album before they call it quits. Bane is one of the most influential modern hardcore bands in the scene, and while it’s sad to see them go, the way they are gracefully turning out the lights on their 19-year-old band is extremely respectable, and bands should be taking notes on how to say goodbye.

Don’t Wait Up comes out on …

There was no indication of whether …

I See Stars Borrow From Bane For “Can We Start Again;” Announce Digital Mixtape ‘Renegades Forever’

Michigan’s I See Stars have returned to the UTG headlines with the release of a new song and the promise of more to come in the (very) near future.

“Can We Start Again” is the first song to surface from I See Stars since the 2012 release of Digital Renegade. The song, which started as a b-side, features guest vocals from Frankie Palmeri of Emmure and Mattie Montgomery, as well as lyrics from the legendary hardcore group Bane.

MOVIE REVIEW: The Dark Knight Rises

Movie: The Dark Knight Rises
Director: Christopher Nolan

I’ve been racking my brains for a week trying to think of some artistic analogy with which to introduce this film. I couldn’t muster one. In actual fact, I’m pleased this review is belated, because it’s given me the chance to take the film in twice and see my opinion do an almost total 180. I thought The Dark Knight Rises was a beautiful, contrarian disaster the first time I watched it – perhaps I was too overhyped or emotional, or a Friday evening viewing after a stressful week at work was …

EDITORIAL: “The Dark Knight Rises: Why The Caped Crusader Couldn’t Take Down The Avengers”

The Dark Knight Rises
marks the unofficial end of the 2012 summer movie season, one that has seen its fair share of surprises and disappointments. Although August still has some high-profile releases left – Total Recall, The Bourne Legacy, and The Expendables II among them – the major studios have all released their $200 million dollar box office contenders by now. Marketing budgets were exhausted and records were set, but the party is now over and the next few weeks should see a calmer box office. Warner Brothers’ TDKR was to be the final celebration of the season, …


WATCH: New Dark Knight Rises TV Spot

With just under two months to go until Christopher Nolan’s behemoth conclusion to the Dark Knight trilogy hits cinema screens, the marketing campaign is stepping up a notch with a new TV spot. This 30-second clip uses mainly the same footage as the theatrical trailer, with a few chilling additions including Sir Michael Caine’s Alfred telling Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale), “You’re not Batman anymore.” The breakneck pace, chaotic crowd scenes, and frenetic editing also give a further indication as to the extent of the carnage Tom Hardy’s ruthless Bane will bring to bear on Gotham. …
