Dustin Kensrue To Release New Solo Album, ‘Carry The Fire’

Thrice frontman Dustin Kensrue has never been a stranger to the world of solo material, but he’s admittedly kept his participation in this area to a minimum in recent years. Now, just as Thrice are preparing to return in some form, Kensrue has revealed plans to release his first non-holiday solo album in years.

Carry The Fire will arrive in stores on April 21, 2015. The album will contain ten new songs, the titles of which were all revealed alongside the cover art for the record earlier today. You can view that information below.

In fact, West is on record stating that the album will not be available for pre-order, and has asked fans to, “Please Purchase June 18.” A …

LIVE VIDEO: Led Zeppelin – “Black Dog” (Taken from ‘Celebration Day’)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock that last few months, it’s likely you’re at least somewhat aware that Led Zeppelin recently put a concert film into limited release and (according to their publicist) found gigantic success. The film is called Celebration Day and features amazing footage from the group’s 2010 reunion show. Tickets sold so well that the group ended up announcing additional screenings, and next week they’ll release the CD/DVD. To mark the occasion, the group have released footage of their “Black Dog” performance, which sounds admittedly different, yet familiar. We think they’ve still got it, and something …


REVIEW: Lions Lions – To Carve Our Names

Artist: Lions Lions
Album: To Carve Our Names
Genre: Rock/Hardcore
Label: Hollywood Waste Records

Methinks To Carve Our Names could be a grower. It’s a fine album, all fresh-faced ardour and youthful bombast, but it doesn’t leave the most lingering of impressions on its first listen. The problem with hardcore of this kind is that it’s so easily put together. Without meaning to impugn the technical skills of any of the bands in the genre, it’s a scene that has a very specific and certain sound and covers such a wide array of bands that it is very tough to …


Hawthorne Heights Comment On Acoustic Tour

Hawthorne Heights have released a statement regarding their forthcoming acoustic tour.

In an open letter to fans released earlier this week, Hawthorne Heights wrote:

Last February we embarked on our first ever full band, all acoustic tour…just for fun. The idea was to hear our songs in a different way for our own sanity, and to give our die hard fans a different type of show. We only booked it for two weeks, because we had no idea how it would go for us, or our fans. What happened in those two weeks turned out to be more than

REVIEW: The Maine – Pioneer

Artist: The Maine
Album: Pioneer
Genre: Rock
Label: Action Theory/Warner Bros

The Maine have come far for a relatively young band, and on this evidence, it’s not difficult to see why. Pioneer combines a light-hearted, easygoing vocal with big, resounding choruses to create a widely accessible and highly enjoyable album. It doesn’t have any hidden depths or darkness, and succeeds in its capable and fresh take on traditional, straightforward rock.

James Shotwell is the founder of Under The Gun Review. He loves writing about music and movies almost as much as he loves his two fat cats. He’s


REVIEW: Hot Chelle Rae – Whatever

Artist: Hot Chelle Rae
Album: Whatever
Genre: Pop-rock
Label: RCA

Whatever is a most fitting title for this album, commencing as it does with a flippant, uniform dismissal of an offending girlfriend. It evolves into something more bizarre, its initial devil-may-care tunes giving way to soapy emotional ballads that sing only too highly of another girl (at least I’m hoping and assuming it’s not the same one). It is, nonetheless, a really enjoyable album with an appealing and upbeat disposition. The tracks are poppy and summery – a good antidote for the rapidly escalating winter weather – and while they’re …
