Here Is The Reason Why Everyone Is Suddenly Interested In Avril Lavigne Again

Avril Lavigne – aka Mrs. Chad Kroeger – has gone through many musical evolutions since the days when she hung out with Sk8r Bois at the local mall, but her latest transformation may baffle even longtime supporters (if those even exist at this point).

“Hello Kitty” is the latest single and video to be release from Lavigne as a means to promote her 2013 self-titled album. It’s a wildly chaotic clip, which finds Avril and a team of Japanese dancers attempting to spark viral video trendiness with over-the-top visuals, weird costumes, and all the bright colors you can possibly imagine. …

REVIEW: Skrillex – ‘Recess’

Artist: Skrillex
Album: Recess
Genre: Bass music
Label: Big Beat / OWSLA / Atlantic

After Skrillex’s popularity eclipsed the entirety of the electronic music scene, the star producer seemed to slip into the shadows. Yes, he released a Burial-esque EP along with the fact his explosive side project, Dog Blood, performed well within the dedicated electronic community, but neither achieved the crossover success Sonny Moore found with his main project. Regardless of popularity or sales, though, it was refreshing to hear Moore experiment with new styles as his shtick began to feel rather overdone throughout the majority of his third …

UTG PHOTOS: Superheroes Anonymous Tour (12/14/13)

Under The Gun photographer, Corbin Alvae, attended the Superheroes Anonymous tour at The Crofoot in Pontiac, MI.

Well, here we are again! I decided to go back and do yet another Electronic Dance Music event that came through Michigan. What a day and night this was! I have a few stories to share with you all before I get into how the tour was.

First off, to anyone that lives in the Midwest states, you probably got hit with a giant snow storm. Well, Michigan got hit pretty hard, which led me to wondering: should I drive in this? My …

UTG PHOTOS: Krewella’s ‘Get Wet Live Tour’ (10/20/13)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Corbin Alvae, to the Get Wet Live Tour at the Royal Oak Music Theatre in Royal Oak, MI.

My ears are currently still ringing while I write this. So I decided to go and enter the world of EDM. With this being my first time covering one of these events, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I did some research beforehand to look and see what I was about to get myself into, and let me tell you, I’ve never seen so many bodies jump and move all at once, minus being at …

LISTEN: Borgore – “Wild Out” (Feat. Waka Flocka Flame & Paige)

Electronic musician Borgore is best known for his wonky dubstep, but he’s teamed up with Rolling Stone to premiere a massive new collaboration that diverges away from what one would expect the producer to create. Featuring rapper Waka Flocka Flame and pop vocalist Paige, “Wild Out” finds Flocka laying down a truly hyped-up verse before Paige’s gorgeous singing leads the track into a barrage of festival house courtesy of Borgore that is sure to become a main-stage staple.

STREAM: Fall Out Boy – “Alone Together” (Krewella Remix)

Well, we knew this was bound to happen sooner or later.

Fall Out Boy has been remixed by EDM crush pair, Krewella (there is a guy in there too). There is dub, there is wub, and there is synth-a-plenty. There are mighty builds and mighty falls. (see what I did there?)

We talked to Krewella about collaborating with Fall Out Boy back in June.

The Krewella girls sings a few verses then leave room for Patrick Stump to scream from the top of his lungs, like he does. Actually turned what was the chorus into the pre-chorus and turn the …

REVIEW: Taylor Swift – Red

Artist: Taylor Swift
Album: Red
Label: Big Machine
Genre: Pop/country

In an interview with Billboard magazine recently, Taylor Swift was asked to characterise her latest release, Red. She replied, “It’s all the different ways you can say goodbye to someone.” This is a fitting description for the phenomenally successful artist’s fourth album, a complex and surely divisive leap of faith, as it represents more than anything she’s done a move from her precocious, girlish roots into something more self-aware, mature, and considered. It’s a beautiful album and a really magical listen to anyone in the right frame of mind, …

STREAM: Taylor Swift – “I Knew You Were Trouble”

We teased it yesterday, and now UTG readers can experience the full, dubstep-loving glory of Taylor Swift’s latest single, “I Knew You Were Trouble.” Released on iTunes this morning, “Trouble” marks the third single from Red to be released, and its by far the poppiest. You can stream the song after the jump.

Even if you hate the world of EDM, it’s pretty hard to deny the power of the hook on “I Knew You Were Trouble,” right? If you agree, click here to purchase the single on iTunes.
