BRONCHO Announce New Album ‘Just Enough Hip To Be Woman’ and Tour Dates

When we found out BRONCHO would be touring with Brand New, our ears perked up. Now that they’ve announced a new record, BRONCHO have our ears perked up again, and this time we’re not going to stop listening. The fuzzy, guitar-driven garage rock group will be dropping Just Enough Hip To Be Woman on September 16 via Dine Alone Records, and the album’s first single, “Class Historian,” is already streaming over at Stereogum.

Just Enough Hip To Be Woman sees the band taking on a poppier sound without losing any of the volume. With 11 tracks, it clocks in …

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: IONIA – “Captain Humility”

Under The Gun Review is excited to be teaming up with New York City’s own IONIA for the premiere of “Captain Humility,” off of the band’s EP of the same name. The track holds the essense of Devil And God era Brand New with an eerie video full of anguish and heartbreak. It is an emotional video for a song that oozes with the deepest thought and sentiment. IONIA frontman Blaise Beyhan had this to say about the video, which he also directed:

“The Captain Humility video is part of a larger concept about finding a way to release one’s

Riot Fest Toronto Reveals Lineup

Riot Fest will return this year to Toronto, Chicago, and Denver, and the real excitement – the lineup announcements – begins today.

The first city to find out what they have in store for September is Toronto. This year’s edition of Riot Fest Toronto will feature prominent Canadian artists like City And Colour, Billy Talent, and hometown heroes Death From …

Brand New and Modest Mouse Announce MASSIVE One-Night-Only Stadium Show In Queens

Hold on to your butts, fans of indie rock laced with emo tendencies. The end of summer just got awesome.

Brand New and Modest Mouse have announced a one-night-only stadium performance at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in Queens, NY for August 9, 2014. The venue is one of the largest either artist has ever headlined, with a reported seating capacity around 14,000. Tickets for the event will go on sale tomorrow, April 30, at 10AM EST via DucatKing.

I know the idea that there are potentially 14,000 tickets available for this concert may lead some to believe they have …

Brand New Live 2

Watch Brand New Cover Coldplay and Modest Mouse

Brand New have done their fair share of covers over time, often showing a lot of love for Neutral Milk Hotel way back when. A few days ago, though, the band played a show at the London Troxy and mixed up “The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot” with a little bit of Coldplay and Modest Mouse.

This isn’t the first time Jesse’s launched into Coldplay during “The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot,” but hearing all three together–that, Coldplay’s “Yellow,” and Modest Mouse’s “Trailer Trash”–is the emotional combo that tops off an already perfect song. Watch a video of …

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Will Connect With ‘Avengers 3′

Marvel has created an exceptional cinematic universe. Tying in big budget film after big budget film, it should be safe to assume that the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy will serve up plot lines for films to come, though one may be taken aback to learn that Guardians is aiding the plot all the way up to Avengers 3.

Looking at the clues left behind in all the Marvel films up to this point, I surmise that the planned Avengers 3 will most likely be tied to the epic Infinity Gauntlet story-line. In the past films we have seen …

Sledding With Tigers Stream “The Devil And A California Burrito Are Raging Inside Me”

The countdown to the April 15 release of Sledding With Tigers‘ debut album continues today with the premiere of a new song titled “The Devil And A California Burrito Are Raging Inside Me.”

An obvious play on the Brand New album The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me, the latest track to surface off Sledding With Tigers’ upcoming album is a short and bittersweet tale of realizing just how minuscule one’s problems are in the grand scheme of existence. You may feel down on yourself for a plethora of reasons, but if you step back and look …

Summerfest 2014

Summerfest Unveils Impressive Lineup

As a Milwaukee native, I’ll be the first to admit that, in recent years, Summerfest has left a lot to be desired. Waves of nefarious activity, coupled with expanding crowds and consistently lackluster lineups have made the annual, 11-day event sort of a running joke amongst my circle of friends—a place for teens to blackout on grain alcohol and garner new profile pics. However, it seems like this will not be the case this coming summer, as earlier today, “The Big Gig” announced an absolutely killer roster, including Fall Out Boy, Paramore, Brand New, Rise Against, …

Brand New Announce Support For Upcoming US Headliner

Thus far, 2014 has been a phenomenal year for Brand New fans. The Long Island four-piece made a triumphant return to the spotlight during the latter half of 2013, and in recent months have been promoting their first headlining tour in almost three years.

And it seems the good news just keeps coming. Earlier this morning, the outfit announced that Kevin Devine, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Man Man and Into It. Over It. will act as support on various dates during their upcoming summer outing. Concertgoers are urged to check venue listings for exact line-ups, and additionally take heed when …
