Rise Against New Album 2014

Rise Against Teasing New Album For 2014

After finding relatively massive mainstream success with their two most recent LPs, Rise Against have quietly and gradually become one of the biggest punk bands of the last fifteen years. While some fans of the older material claim that the band has sold out in favor of a more radio-friendly sound, one look at their recently posted teaser video might prove otherwise.

The video, which you can stream after the jump, takes a glance at each of the band’s releases from 2001′s The Unraveling through 2011′s Endgame before showing the band in the studio recording their new record. Maybe I …

Johnny Depp Shines In Second ‘Transcendence’ Trailer

The second full trailer for Transcendence has found its way online.

If the first trailer for Transcendence hooked you, this may be a good time to turn away before you risk spoiling potentially large portions of the movie. That’s not a slam against the marketing team behind this futuristic thriller, but anytime you’re messing with highbrow science the previews are bound to give away a lot of the juicier action segments. That is certainly the case with this clip, so those hoping to view this film in all its ‘anything can happen’ splendor you should click off this page now. …

Mac Miller 2013

STREAM: Mac Miller – “Goosebumpz” (Prod. by Diplo)

Less than a month to go before his Sophomore album hits stores, Pennsylvania native Mac Miller has debuted a new song entitled “Goosebumpz.”

Featuring production from the legendary Diplo, “Goosebumpz” is a mindbending near-masterpiece whose perfection is due 100% to the personality of Miller. The beat is unquestionably original and all sorts of infectious, but it’s the way Miller walks a fine lyrical line between insight and absurdity that makes him something of a modern wonder. It’s clear he is just as focused on fun as ever before, but at the same time the evolution of his skills from his …

MOVIE TRAILER: The Myth of the American Sleepover
