REVIEW: New Found Glory – ‘Resurrection’

Artist: New Found Glory
Album: Resurrection
Label: Hopeless
Genre: Pop-Punk

When all is said and done, New Found Glory’s Resurrection could go down as 2014′s most appropriately titled release.

By forging an unmistakable signature sound that has inspired countless imitators and relentlessly touring with their consistently powerful and energetic live show, New Found Glory has become one of the most respected bands in their scene. But it would be safe to assume the past year has been the most difficult of the band’s 17-year career, enduring the departure of founding guitarist and songwriter Steve Klein. The band’s lineup had been …

Steal My Song: One Direction’s New Single Sounds A Lot Like A Classic New Found Glory Song

One Direction have spent the last several months touring the world in support of their 2013 effort, Midnight Memories. The group somehow found time amidst all their travels to record a new record, which is scheduled to hit stores in November, and earlier today the album’s first single found its way online. The only problem is – I swear I have heard (at least part of it) before.

Let’s rewind. New Found Glory switched gears in 2006 and released a laid back record known as Come Home. It’s an album that sounds unlike any other record from the …

UTG INTERVIEW: New Found Glory @ Riot Fest Chicago 2014

Rock bottom.

That’s the best way to describe where New Found Glory sat in their career earlier this year. Accusations surrounding the abrupt departure of a former member whirled around the band — causing chaos like nothing any artist wants to see in a tenured career. It would have been so easy for our favorite pop-punk forefathers to call it quits, to run into the shadows and hide. To fade away and fall off the face of the Earth.

But what would that prove? For a band that built a career on music that captures the essence of never giving …

Just having gone back home from their shows on the other end of the globe, Poughkeepsie alt-rockers, We Are The In Crowd have recently released a new music video for the song “Manners” off of their most recent full-length, Weird Kids. The video features a lot of lack of love and a whole lot of flying objects.

You can watch the new music video for “Manners” below.…

LIVE REVIEW: Riot Fest Denver (Day 1)

I missed Riot Fest 2013, and to be honest I spent the first six months after it took place kicking myself for having not attended. When the 2014 installment was unveiled, I knew this would be the year I finally made the trek. Chicago was my first choice, but due to some family related issues that came up in August I ultimately settled on booking a flight, hotel, and car for one in order to enjoy Riot Fest from the parking lot of Mile High Stadium in Denver, CO.

My journey began as great adventures do, with a far too …

FESTIVAL PREVIEW: 10 Cover Songs We Hope To Hear at Riot Fest Chicago

Nothing gets a festival crowd going like a good cover tune, so it’s no surprise that many of my favorite memories from Riot Fest 2013 involved covers. The festival opened on Friday afternoon with Hatebreed paying tribute to fallen Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman with their cover of “Ghosts of War,” during which Jamey Jasta made the proclamation that you should “never marry a woman who doesn’t like Slayer,” and it’s hard to argue with the man. The festival ended on a high note as well, with Sunday performers AFI offering their take on The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven” just before …

FESTIVAL PREVIEW: The 10 Must-See Acts At Riot Fest Chicago

Most decisions in life are hard. Where should I go to college? What should I eat for lunch? What career path should I take? How should I cut my hair? Do I like Dumbledore or Gandalf better? Deep dish or thin crust?

The most pressing question bothering us over the last week is which Riot Fest Chicago acts can we absolutely not miss. By absolutely, we mean getting there if it means passing up every other band on the bill — even if, by some miracle, the festival curators talk Led Zeppelin into finally not being a bunch of …

WATCH: New Found Glory Channels Inner Youth With “Ready And Willing” Video

New Found Glory are gearing up for a record that has the potential to be the best pop punk release of the year. Just when fans have finally recovered from the hard-hitting track, “Selfless,” the band has come back with a uber-catchy number in today’s release, “Ready And Willing.”

The video portrays the band in a frighteningly accurate display of their youth (full with a shirtless teenaged bassist Ian Grushka) getting into various antics. Is it a goofy parody of the music and demeanor shown with a certain overnight pop-punk mainstream teenage success from Australia? Maybe a …

UTG’s Favorite Singles Of Summer 2014

The summer may have been a bummer for hollywood execs and people hoping to see Outkast perform anywhere other than an overcrowded festival, but those who love discovering new music have had plenty to celebrate. Whether you like pop, rock, folk, country, EDM, or any combination of the five there were a slew of new names vying for attention in recent months. Some got the attention they deserved, but most did not. That is as much our fault in some cases as it is far larger publications, but today we are going to right those wrongs by giving them another …
