UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: The Weekend Classic – “Dread The Weather”

Several weeks ago we brought you an extensive introduction to fast-rising Indiana pop-rock outfit The Weekend Classic, and today it’s our great honor to assist the band in sharing their first music video with the world.

I have spent a lot of time over the last month listening to The Weekend Classic, which is kind of amazing when you consider the fact they have only released two songs to date. The debut single took us by surprise, and it has continued to win over new fans every single day since its initial release. I think that trend will only …

Netlix And Adam Sandler Are Working On Not One, But Four New Films

Either Hell has frozen over or the executive team at Netflix does not realize Adam Sandler continued making films after Click, but whatever the case, a groundbreaking deal has just been made that will allow Sandler to make four new films for the popular streaming service.

Announced today, Netflix has entered into an agreement with Adam Sandler to have the comedy icon star in and produce four new films that will be distributed exclusively through the streaming platform. None of the projects have been revealed at this time, but it’s likely the first will not premiere until the last …

UTG EXCLUSIVE: When Cities Sleep Sign To Indianola Records, Premiere New Lyric Video

When Cities Sleep are an up-and-coming post-hardcore outfit based out of Waldorf, Maryland. The group has been together since 2011 and have earned a solid following in their local scene by combining heavy guitar riffs with electronic drops. Their hard work has paid off, and now we’ve teamed up with the group to announce they have signed to Indianola Records. This label is also the home to bands like Provoke, Destroy and Apparitions.

In addition to the signing, we are happy to premiere the lyric video for their new single, “Dead Tires.” You can stream that song by taking …

UTG PREMIERE: Nemes – “Black Streak”

With a little more than a month to go before their long awaited full-length debut arrives in stores, New England folk rock outfit Nemes have joined forces with UTG to share a brand new song.

It’s hard to know the right way to describe the sound of Nemes to someone who has never encountered their unique take on music. The best explanation I have been able to put together is asking people to imagine what would happen if My Morning Jacket had a baby with Mumford And Sons while listening to acoustic-driven emo music from the early millennium. I know …

Vanities Band 2014 Dead Beats EP

UTG Premiere: Vanities – ‘Dead Beats’ EP

Just a year after bursting onto the hardcore scene with their incredible debut, New England’s Vanities are back with a killer new record that might be your favorite heavy release of the fall.

The world of heavy music has become incredibly underwhelming in recent years, at least on the side of things that caters to younger audiences. The vast majority of bands making it in the quote/unquote ‘alternative’ scene have all become clones of one another, ripping off whatever new idea is popular this year in order to cash in long enough to book another nationwide tour. Still, in the …

UTG Video Premiere: Across the Viaduct – “Night Shift”

We have a slew of unsigned exclusives coming your way this week, and the latest offering comes to us from none other than Ohio pop punk outfit Across The Viaduct.

To be fair, Across The Viaduct are not pop punk in the same way, say, Man Overboard are pop punk. Their sound is certainly rooted in influences from the Warped Tour world of musicians, but there is a very defined indie presence in their music as well that helps add a level of sonic maturity to the whole affair. “Night Shift,” the band’s latest single, showcases all of this …

UTG Video Premiere: Astro Safari USA – “Do You Like To Party”

Grab your lover and a cup of your favorite drink because Astro Safari USA have returned with a new music video that is sure to get the party started no matter where you find yourself today.

It has admittedly been a few months since Astro Safari USA graced the front page of Under The Gun, but the last time they popped up it was because we had the great honor of sharing their new album with the world. That record, which you can stream right here, featured a killer song titled “Do You Like To Party” that has since …

UTG Premiere: Vanities – “Too Little Too Late”

I am not sure what else can be written about Vanities that has not already been scrawled across this site a dozen times in the past year. Rising from relative obscurity in New England, Vanities have quickly become a band everyone with an ear for the heavier side of music needs to know. Their debut EP was released in the fall of 2013, and today it gives us great pleasure to inform you the group’s second release, Dead Beats, will be self-released by the band on September 23.

In our opinion there is no reason to announce a new …
