Help Kickstart Throne Watches Or Live A Life Full Of Regret

The music industry is a fun, yet horrible place where some of the most talented people go unnoticed because they’re unable or unwilling to create easy-to-digest pop songs that can be manipulated to sell any variety of products one may desire. When that happens — and believe me when I say it occurs numerous times every single day — creative people have to find alternate means of generating income. For Travis Alexander and his team in New York, the answer was simple: watches.

I don’t know if we have ever covered Throne Watches in depth before now, but I can …

Graveyard Club

Graveyard Club Proclaim “The Night Is Mine” With Infectious New Single

I will be the first to admit I have never heard of the band Graveyard Club prior to the beginning of this week. Like many unsigned bands making waves on the underground, their buzz is only just now reaching online press outside their local area, but already they are gaining momentum at an alarming rate.

Today, Graveyard Club shared a new single titled “The Night Is Mine.” The sunny and nostalgia-laced tracks brings to mind muggy summer nights spent listening to Joy Division and driving around aimlessly while smoking cigarettes with your closest friends. It’s not about going somewhere or …

Horror Fans Unite: Kickstart ‘The Mortuary Collection’ Or Else!

People who love horror movies are some of the most dedicated fans in the world. It doesn’t matter if your film has a studio budget or if it was filmed in your backyard over the weekend–as long as the premise is decent and there is a chance of carnage, horror fans will more than likely give you a few minutes of their time. The open acceptance of new ideas is part of what makes this genre so wonderful in the first place, and it is with that in mind that I must now ask you to dig deep and help …

Do The World A Favor And Kickstart A Full-Length ‘Fist Of Jesus’ Movie

We live for weird cinema at UTG. Marvel films are fun, sure, but there is no cinematic thrill like the excitement that comes from seeing something truly original brought to life in a highly entertaining way from a relatively unknown voice. It’s like stumbling across buried treasure, only for people who hate the idea of actually spelunking because The Descent scarred them for life.

With that in mind, we must urge every one of our like-minded readers to join us in helping director David Muñoz and producer Simon Brading in bringing a feature length version of their beloved 2012 horror …

Emery Launch Crowdfunding Campaign For New LP

Post-hardcore outfit Emery have launched a crowdfunding campaign on BadChristian for their forthcoming LP, You Were Never Alone. Asking fans for $50,000, the group are offering everything from signed copies of the record to playing personal house shows in return for their generosity.

You Were Never Alone will mark the return of founding member Devin Shelton, so there’s no doubt it should be worth contributing a few dollars to its production. For those who aren’t convinced even with that being said, click here to check out a demo of “I Got Taken For A Bath,” and furthermore, as part …

REVIEW: Farewell Flight – ‘I Was A Ghost’

Artist: Farewell Flight
Album: I Was a Ghost
Genre: Pop Rock

Like most people who spend their free time between college classes and work shifts writing for music websites, I was deeply involved in my local music scene in high school, playing in bands, helping out at local venues, and booking shows. Among my favorite memories from those years are the nights when Farewell Flight would play at our little coffee shop. With an upbeat, infectious debut album, titled Sound Color Motion, and a stellar live show, the Pennsylvania natives made such an impression on our little scene in …

Project 86 Launch Kickstarter For New Album, Acoustic EP

Orange County hard rock band Project 86 turned to Kickstarter to raise the funds for their 2012 full-length, Wait For the Siren, and the effort was so successful that they are returning to the crowdfunding platform for their ninth studio album and an accompanying acoustic EP. The as-yet-untitled record has a projected release date of mid-2014, and you can see all the details and the rewards for pledging right here.

After raising more than double their goal on Wait For the Siren, the band have set their sights higher this time around, asking for $50,000 to fund …

Sundance Adds Zach Braff’s Kickstarter Movie and Gives ‘Clerks’ a 20th Anniversary Screening

Zach Braff, otherwise known as that one guy who made that indie film the the good soundtrack (just kidding, let’s not forget Scrubs), started a Kickstarter to support his first feature film since Garden State titled Wish You Were HereTurns out the latter will be screening at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival along with numerous other big names.

This means that the festival now boasts a total of 119 feature-length films that will be screening in January. Along with Braff’s partly Kickstarter-funded sophomore feature, the Sundance Institute also added a 20th anniversary screening of Kevin Smith’s …

From First To Last Reuniting, Launch $25,000 Kickstarter For New EP

You read the headline right! From First To Last have been teasing fans for the last few weeks about some big news, we’ve all been speculating, but I don’t think anyone would have guessed that the group would be getting back together to record new music.

That’s exactly what is happening though. The group has officially announced that after their four long years on hiatus, they will be getting back together and releasing a new EP. To release that new EP, they have launched a $25,000 Kickstarter. I might add that this was just launched today, and the group …

Florida pop rock favorites We The Kings took a chance yesterday afternoon by stepping out on their own with a crowdfunding effort through Indiegogo.

New Conducting From The Grave Song Slays

As much as we miss With Passion, Sacramento’s Conducting From The Grave have kept us happy with their furious, shredding metal for a decade now. Having recently departed from Sumerian Records and launching a Kickstarter back in June to fund a new album, the band is doing just that due to meeting their $15k goal with ease.

The new song, “The Rise,” will be featured on the band’s new self-tiled release that drops next week and is giving us a helluva a metal fix this morning. At nearly five minutes in length, “The Rise” will have fans of bands like …

Trent Reznor Is No Longer A Fan Of Pay-What-You-Want

Trent Reznor did a great interview with SPIN the other day. One story making waves is when Trent told a certain portion of people to go fuck themselves. When asked about getting bigger, he ended up touching on his time in the pay-what-you-want world and the Kickstarter controversies over the years, saying “I know that what we’re doing flies in the face of the Kickstarter Amanda-Palmer-Start-a-Revolution thing, which is fine for her, but I’m not super-comfortable with the idea of Ziggy Stardust shaking his cup for scraps. I’m not saying offering things for free or pay-what-you-can is wrong. I’m
