The Smashing Pumpkins Stream “Being Beige” From New Album

The Smashing Pumpkins have released the first song from their upcoming LP, Monuments to an Elegy, via Rolling Stone.

With the album due out December 9, hopefully the bright track can tide fans over until then. Featuring lush atmospheres and pretty guitars grounded by acoustics, “Being Beige” is a soaring track that may divide Smashing Pumpkins fans (though honestly, what doesn’t?), but it sure is a solid track that is consistent throughout.

When speaking on the track with Rolling Stone, singer/guitarist Billy Corgan said that “people always ask me to explain songs, and honestly I can’t. But if there’s …

The Simpsons Cat Stevens

Watch The Simpsons Pay Homage to Cat Stevens

So far there have been 26 seasons of The Simpsons, and they never fail to come up with a clever “couch gag” in every episode — one of the many reasons why they’re still running strong. There have been art deco takes, spoofs on “The Harlem Shake” and Breaking Bad, and directorial debuts from Banksy and Don Hertzfeld. The newest addition to their reel? A very yellow take on Cat Stevens’ iconic 1970 album Tea For The Tillerman.

The clip sees The Simpsons replicating the album artwork while other Springfield residents act out a literal interpretation …

Ten Years Later: mewithoutYou’s ‘Catch For Us The Foxes’

My first real rock concert was a Coheed and Cambria headlining tour one winter when I was somewhere between 12 and 13 years old. I was waiting in line with my mother (because she’s totally awesome and loves Coheed), and we see a bearded man covered in jackets walk in front of us and empty a pot filled with some hot liquid. Continuing on with our anticipatory waiting, we noticed that once the liquid had evacuated the pot, the man was still there so delicately admiring the pot, as if he was thanking it for holding an entire universe of …

LIVE REVIEW: Coheed And Cambria – ‘Neverender: In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3′

Under The Gun Review sent staff writer, Drew Caruso, to the House of Blues in Boston to experience Coheed And Cambria’s monumental album ‘In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3′ in full. Late on an Autumn evening, the fiction saw the real.

It was certainly difficult to ascertain the correct words to attribute my emotions upon heading to the House of Blues in Boston to experience one of the most influential and monumental albums of my short lifetime. Being only 12 when it first hit my ears, it was the album that made me question how I thought rock music …

Nothing Release “July The Fourth” From Upcoming Split With Whirr

Nothing have released a new track off of their upcoming split with Whirr, dropping November 17 through Run For Cover Records.

Nothing have been on the rise since their debut Guilty Of Everything released last March, an album which I reviewed and enjoy immensely.

The band returns with “July The Fourth,” via Vogue, and delivers a track that adheres to their punker attitude but still features their signature flood of sound upon listeners.

Follow us after the jump to experience the stellar track, and be sure to be on the lookout for any more news regarding the band’s upcoming …

Get Lost In Future Of What’s Newest Track, “No War Dance Floor”

Brooklyn band Future Of What has posted a new track titled “No War Dance Floor.” The track comes off the band’s newest album, Pro Dreams, due out January 13, 2015.

Featuring smooth vocals covered in electronic sounds, the track is a wonderful exploration of sonic resonance for this crisp fall day. After hearing the first track released from Pro Dreams, “The Rainbowed Air,” and now “No War Dance Floor,” my anticipation for the new album is fully solidified.

Get lost in the band’s newest track after the jump, and be sure to be on the lookout …

Transit Joyride

Transit Stream “Saturday, Sunday”

Following with the ’12 Days Of Transit’ feature over at Alternative Press, day two brings a stream of “Saturday, Sunday,” the second track off of Transit’s newest album, Joyride, out October 21 through Rise Records.

With day one consisting of album opener “The Only One,” the newer tracks released thus far appear to be sitting better with fans than the band’s previous release, Young New England.

Feautring bright guitars, soaring vocals, and a revitalized sense of energy, “Saturday, Sunday” feels like the groove Transit attempted to reach with Young New England, but wasn’t quite ready to …

REVIEW: Finch – ‘Back To Oblivion’

Artist: Finch
Album: Back To Oblivion
Genre: Post-Hardcore
Label: Razor and Tie

To be honest, I am not too acclimated with Finch. Like many rock lovers I enjoy What It Is To Burn and parts from Say Hello To Sunshine, but I never truly gravitated to the band. This mindset made my approach to their comeback album Back To Oblivion all the more interesting.

Upon first listen, it can be immediately felt that the production of Back To Oblivion was dealt with extreme care. Guitars whirl through thundering drums and bass as the vocals soar far above everything …

REVIEW: Gerard Way – ‘Hesitant Alien’

Artist: Gerard Way
Album: Hesitant Alien
Genre: Brit-Pop / Shoegaze
Label: Reprise Records

For certain people, there are always going to be artists who they check out no matter what type of project their name is attached to. For myself, Gerard Way is a name that I’m always going to pay attention to, no matter if he’s making music under My Chemical Romance, drawing something for DC Comics, or in this specific review’s case, making a Brit-Pop record. Here’s the thing: I’m not a huge Brit-Pop fan. It’s never been a genre that I’ve ever latched onto for whatever reason, …
