Moose Blood Premiere Video For “Swim Down”

Moose Blood have premiered a video for their fantastic new track “Swim Down,” over at AbsolutePunk.

“Swim Down” is a bright, upbeat tune, highlighting the band’s keen sense for musicianship and songwriting, as well as showcasing their vocal pipes. Reminiscent of your favorite emo bands with a greater sense of pop and energy, Moose Blood’s upcoming debut album, I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time, is sure to resonate strongly with fans of the genre, and hopefully others as well.

Gerard Way Posts ‘Pink Station Zero’ Video Teasing New Music

Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way is responsible for one of the fall’s most anticipated albums, and earlier today we learned additional music from that release will soon be available.

Using Twitter as his launching pad, Gerard Way turned to social media this afternoon to share a new video titled Pink Station Zero. The name is a reference to one of many ‘stations’ that will be found in All Ages, a comic Way is currently developing when not making music. In the clip, what looks to be a futuristic dance party themed television show filmed using technology …

UTG INTERVIEW: Foxing Discuss ‘The Albatross,’ the Science in ‘Lucy’ and Their Audiotree Session

On a warm evening in Cambridge, MA, at the venue known as The Middle East, I stood and watched as Foxing came alive on a small stage to a sold out crowd.

I witnessed the band pour everything they had into the notes and sounds reverberating from their instruments, bleeding over the crowd, seemingly ill-prepared for what the band was able to emanate. It was an incredibly moving moment, and I was more than pleased to speak with bassist Josh, drummer Jon, and guitarist Eric after their set. We spoke on their recently re-mastered debut album The Albatross, their …

Michael Cera Pulled A Death Grips and Released An Album Without Telling Anyone

We had to find out from Jonah Hill (or, really, Noisey) that Michael Cera (Superbad, Youth In Revolt, Arrested Development) just released an album without telling anyone. And it sounds exactly like what you’d expect.

The album, titled true that, is a mixture of “what is Michael Cera doing?” and “Michael Cera, what are you doing?” It’s 18 tracks with 3 bonus tracks (after purchase) of cutesy, lo-fi indie folk that makes a lot of sense considering the soundtracks to every movie Cera has been in. Some sound like actual music, others sound like …

code orange

WATCH: Code Orange – “Dreams In Inertia”

Code Orange (formerly Code Orange Kids) have released a new music video for “Dreams In Inertia,” a track off of their upcoming album, I Am King.

Featuring some sonic changes from what the band normally produces, “Dreams In Inertia” is a slow, drone of a track that features whispered vocals, singing, no screaming, and a mood not unlike True Widow.

The video features the band playing in a darkened room, coupled with images of cult-like activities that continues with the themes presented in the “I Am King” video.

Follow us after the jump as the band continues …

Citizen Tour

Citizen Release “Silo” From Upcoming 7″

Citizen released a new track today via Brooklyn Vegan, in the form of “Silo,” a track featured on the band’s new exclusive tour 7″ from Run For Cover Records. The 7″ will include the regular track, as well as a stripped down version.

Expanding on the grounds covered on debut album Youth, “Silo” is a darker adventure for the band. Including bends, dissonance, and some of the heaviest parts the band has yet to release, “Silo” will surely be an experience live, as well as a welcomed addition to the band’s growing discography.

The band is set to …

Creepoid

WATCH: Creepoid – “Yellow Wallpaper”

Creepoid is an alternative rock band from Philly that made it on to our Best Releases You May Have Missed feature earlier this year. Remaining criminally underrated, hopefully their new video for “Yellow Wallpaper” will be just the right amount of weird the band needs to garner a well earned greater audience.

From their fantastic self-titled album, “Yellow Wallpaper” is spacey, weird, and all other kinds of words to describe the sonic unknown. The video pairs well with the track, featuring images exposed over each other, slow motion, a tiger mask, and plenty other nonsensical things.

Follow us after the …

gaslight anthem

REVIEW: The Gaslight Anthem – ‘Get Hurt’

Artist: The Gaslight Anthem
Album: Get Hurt
Genre: Alternative Rock
Label: Island

If you spend too much time attempting to vivisect the songs that make up The Gaslight Anthem’s fifth album, Get Hurt, you may very well miss it entirely. As listeners, we are used to the blue collar, Americana themes presented by the act, traversing through narratives of Saturday nights, lost loves, heartbreak, and a consistent theme of lessening within our lives. Attempting to deduce each track individually, grouping each experience with past Gaslight albums such as Handwritten, American Slang, and The ’59 Sound, …

UTG PHOTOS: Arcade Fire Dazzle The Gorge Amphitheater (8/814)

In what had to be seen to be believed, Arcade Fire performed at the legendary Gorge Amphitheater in George, WA on August 8. The Gorge, which sits near the Columbia River, is one of the premier concert venues in the Pacific Northwest, and what better way to breathe even more life into its structure than to host one of the biggest indie rock bands in the world?

However, Arcade Fire had one requirement for their fans who were in attendance: be dressed to the nines in semi-formal attire, and dance their asses off! Seeing this at The Gorge was interesting …

the american scene 2014

LISTEN: The American Scene – “Nails of Love”

Haze, the upcoming release from California’s The American Scene, is one of my most anticipated releases for the rest of the year. With the fantastic Safe for Now already under their belt, Haze is stacking up to a powerhouse release of alt-rock. The already released “Royal Blue,” and “4th and Broadway” have been in constant rotation since their release, and now we get to add “Nails Of Love” to our anticipatory spinning.

Premiered on Alternative Press, the third track released from the new album slows the tempo down from the two experiences before, opening …

MUSIC VIDEO: The Gaslight Anthem – “Rollin’ And Tumblin’”

The Gaslight Anthem have released a new music video for their track “Rollin’ And Tumblin’.”

The video, which finds the band performing in black and white to synchronized dancers encapsulating them, is the second video released for their new album Get Hurt, following the release of the video for the album’s title track, “Get Hurt.

Get Hurt is said to be a stylistic change for the band, and that evidence can be seen in their new video. The video features a barrage of flashing white lights, not unlike The 1975. The band even chose Mike Crossey, the …
