Less than a year after coming together in the name of rock and roll, Bornstellar have written and recorded a killer EP that demands your full attention.

Founded in December 2013, this hard rock outfit hail from South Carolina with a sound that blends elements of hard and alternative rock with just enough mainstream magic in the mix to have broad appeal.

mewithoutYou Begin Teasing Sixth Studio Album

mewithoutYou have long been a band that stayed in a lane entirely their own, and if I had to guess, the album they began teasing earlier this afternoon will be no exception.

Without warning, mewithoutYou surprised fans around the globe today by releasing a video teaser announcing their forthcoming sixth studio album. The record, which is set for release in early-to-mid 2015, is apparently titled Thy Foes Profanely Rage. The clip features music and live footage, but no lyrics. You can view the video below:…

The Districts Announce New Album, Share Lead Single

We’ve had our eyes and ears on Pennsylvania quartet The Districts a lot this year. Their last release, Telephone, has been in consistent rotation here at UTG and they were easily one of our favorite acts at both Outside Lands and Lollapalooza. However, we’ve been craving some new jams from the youngsters.

Today, the band has announced their followup to Telephone and released the lead single as well. The album, titled A Flourish And A Spoil, will be released on February 10 via Fat Possum. The new track, “4th And Roebling,” is named after a special intersection …

The Decemberists Stream “Make You Better”

Portland’s iconic indie-folk rockers, The Decemberists, have returned with news of their next release. It’s been a few years since the band’s last official studio album, 2011′s The King Is Dead, and fans have been patiently waiting for a followup to the country/bluegrass-inspired album.

At long last, The Decemberists have announced the upcoming What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World, which is set for release on January 20. Early promotion for the album was provided by vocalist Colin Meloy, who was seen busking on street corners recently. Pre-orders, tracklist and tour info are all available …

Emarosa Debut “People Like Me, We Just Don’t Play” Music Video

Post-hardcore outfit Emarosa recently released their third full-length, Versus, a long-awaited effort featuring the band’s first stab at recording with vocalist Bradley Walden. In support of the album’s release, they have debuted a brand new music video for one of Versus‘ standout cuts, “People Like Me, We Just Don’t Play.” Finding the band performing under a slew of light bulbs in an otherwise dark room, it’s a simple premise, but there’s enough passion on display from the musicians to warrant checking the video out.

Follow the jump to watch the visuals for “People Like Me, We Just Don’t …

Future Hit: Theophilus London Featuring Kanye West – “Can’t Stop”

A track where Kanye raps like the days before Yeezus? Yes please.

Trinidadian-born Brooklyn rapper Theophilus London is set to release his Sophomore album next week, and earlier today an advance stream of the record found its way online. The album was executive produced by Kanye West, but what made us perk up was the fact Yeezus also contributes a new verse to the album on a laid back track titled “Can’t Stop.” We spun the album three or four times before we realized we hadn’t posted it yet, so here we are ready to share the party with …

Circa Survive Release Video For New Single, Launch Pre-orders For ‘Descensus’

It’s been less than two weeks since Circa Survive officially announced their fifth LP, Descensus, which is due out on November 24 through their new label, Sumerian Records.

Following the brief teaser found with the announcement, the band has released a visually stunning and disturbingly surreal new video for the album’s lead single, entitled “Schema,” which we heard a brief snippet of in the album’s initial trailer. Clocking in at nearly five minutes in length, our first taste of Descensus wastes no time introducing us to the aggressive nature in which the album opens, musically reminiscent of labelmates The …

Run The Jewels Share “Blockbuster Night Pt. 2″

This year, Run The Jewels have become official overachievers. The second full-length from El-P and Killer Mike, RTJ2,  comes out today via iTunes, but the duo put it up for free to download on Friday because why not? They got enough money to move forward with Meow the Jewels, their remix of the album using only cat noises. They announced a worldwide art project called Tag The Jewels, a call for 30 street artists to paint their interpretation of the logo on street walls. They’re unstoppable.

To celebrate the album release, they’re sharing the sequel to single …

Marilyn Manson Offers New Single, “Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge,” For Free

We have been hearing rumors and talk of a new Marilyn Manson album being in the works for the majority of 2014, and over the weekend it seems like we took one step closer to holding that record in our hands.

“Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge” is a brand new track from Manson that found its way online early Sunday, October 27. The song is a laid-back rock song that is full of pain and reflection, with Manson’s gravelly voice cutting through the noise as only the former shock rocker can. It feels a bit like the kind …

SINGLE REVIEW: Enter Shikari – “The Last Garrison”

Artist: Enter Shikari
Song: “The Last Garrison
Album: The Mindsweep

By the time Enter Shikari release The Mindsweep in early 2015 nearly three years will have passed since A Flash Flood of Colour arrived in stores. Enter Shikari have released material in the time between these releases, but any fan of the band knows there is a world of difference between the group’s singles and how they approach full-length recordings. The records Enter Shikari create are as much about delivering a cohesive listening experience with a clear message as they are keeping listeners on their toes from track …
