UTG PHOTOS: The Used, Every Time I Die & Marmozets In Cleveland, OH (5/2/15)

Under The Gun sent photographer Kellie Gannon to photograph The Used at House of Blues in Cleveland on May 2.

The Used is not the kind of band whose show you can attend without getting some sort of accidental bruise, mosh pit elbow in the eye, or crowd surfers’ foot in the head. It’s worth every minute and every potential battle wound. The Used has been a band since 2001, but my first opportunity to experience them live wasn’t until Vans Warped Tour 2012 in Cleveland. Highlights from that set included Bert spitting into the crowd, throwing a lit cigarette …

Daniel Davison (ex-Norma Jean, Underoath) to Replace Ryan “Legs” Leger as the Drummer for Every Time I Die

Band member changes must clearly be in style in 2015, as Every Time I Die has now taken their turn in making headlines across the internet.

The Buffalo, NY group took to their Facebook page to announce that after almost six years with the band, Ryan “Legs” Leger has left ETID in pursuit of a much more stable lifestyle. Granted, this is a much better condition than say, the recent Asking Alexandria and Blink-182 fiascos.

At the end of their short and sweet post regarding this news, Every Time I Die shared that Daniel Davison will be pounding cymbals and …

A Musical Journey Through The Year 2014

2014. What a whirlwind of a year it has been. My life was changing in both my professional and personal life so quickly it was at the point where my physical body couldn’t keep up (I may have gained a few pounds along the way). And now the year has come to a close. Along this roller coaster year, there were album releases that I already expected to be great and others I learned to adore. Then there were others that were somewhat disappointing that I held on such high regard. But in the end, I did appreciate every piece …

Defined By Sonic Residues: A Resonance Of 2014

2014 was a year of polarity. Conflicting forces spinning me in all different directions, fighting to find which molecular force was the strongest. Flipping through the albums that left a mark on me through the entire year, I found that each one presented itself as a singular head-space, an isolated escape. Ranging from a dark and harrowing place, to open invigoration fueled by the sun. It is with this collected communion that I will find myself human, in an incredibly increasingly dehumanized world. It is music, and sounds, and the way in which they vibrate in your ear that proposes …

UTG TV: ETID Meets CYE At Warped 2014

We here at Under The Gun Review like to consider ourselves family. For us, it’s important to keep in mind that the music community is in fact a community. At events like Warped Tour, you get to meet a lot of new people. UTG TV was able to bring together Close Your Eyes and Every Time I Die for the first time.

I’m sure you remember UTG TV’s segment entitled ‘Boozin’ With Buckley‘ we ran with Keith from Every Time I Die not too long ago. Well, unfortunately we couldn’t have a second installment of the boozing (considering …

Dream Riders: The Tour Desires of Your Favorite Artists (UTG Exclusive)

Wikipedia defines a rider as: a set of requests or demands that a performer sets as criteria for performance.

Whether an act’s tour rider is ridiculously egocentric and/or overly materialistic, just plain outlandish in a fun way, a rock ‘n’ roll legend, or far more modest and unshowy than you might expect, nearly every touring artist has at least something that they request from the venues in which they’ll be performing at. It could be something as simple and understandable as a stack of towels, or in the case of some more haughty, self-indulgent artists, a rider might outline …
