We Are Human Release “New Scars, Old Habits” Music Video

Need a little hard rock to help kickstart the work week grind? We can help.

Woodstock, Ontario hard rock outfit We Are Human have released the official music video for the song “New Scars, Old Habits.” The video was directed by Steve Putt and displays the full fury and energy of We Are Human’s live performances in an up close and personal way. This is a fancy way of saying the entire clip takes place in a tiny performance space, and to be honest I’m pretty sure the exact location is someone’s unused garage. You can view the video below …

Walking With Strangers End Hiatus, Plan On Releasing New Music

Last April Walking With Strangers announced that after 6 years of being a band they would be going on an indefinite hiatus. Their Facebook page has been relatively quiet since then, except for the last couple of weeks. After a bit of teasing, the band finally announced earlier this morning that they are officially ending their hiatus. They stated that about four months ago they decided to start writing some new music. You can read the announcement they made below, as well as check out a brief video with some additional information as well as a clip of a new …

Gabe Saporta is Working On New Music

We all got what we had been wanting for years: a Midtown reunion. It was short lived, and not very extravagant, but hey, it happened. Skate & Surf got it. Maybe it will happen again. But who knows? Now that that is all over, it appears that the frontman Gabe Saporta is working on new music.

Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy tweeted yesterday confirming the news. There is no news as to what form it takes — Cobra Starship, solo work, Midtown (please, God) or what. But all we know is that it’s happening. Also Saporta retweeted it. That …

UTG Premiere: Kyle Cox – “Never Looking Back”

We have spent a good portion of July introducing you to a new generation of talent that we feel will soon be dominating headlines worldwide. We’ve featured hard rock, pop, and rap before today, and can now add rising singer-songwriters to the list as well.

Kyle Cox may not be a household name just yet, but I have all the confidence in the world that he will win his way into your heart before the day is out. His new album, The Plan, The Mess, offers listeners a collection of soulful, heartfelt songs that touch on everything from life …

Bad Sign Share “The Recidivist”

Bad Sign are kickstarting the promotional efforts for their forthcoming EP today with the release of a new song titled “The Recidivist.”

Posted first to YouTube as part of a slick lyric video, “The Recidivist” kicks off with all the aggression and intensity you would expect from a band trying to find their way onto the Vans Warped Tour. As the introduction transitions into the first verse, however, there is a melodic sense of heart and soul that comes pouring through the speakers, changing the hard-hitting track into something slightly more alternative. This is not a complaint. Not in the …

Amative

UTG Premiere: Amative – “Selfish Desires” (Official Music Video)

We have been focusing a lot of our efforts in July on exposing readers to new music, and today may be my favorite of all ‘discovery’ posts to debut so far on the site. Amative are a crushingly heavy outfit from Ohio who are not afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Their debut EP, Flatlined, debuted in April. We missed it, and the more we listen to it now the more we want to kick ourselves for not being familiar with their work in time to help with the initial album promotion. Hopefully this post makes up …

UTG Premiere: Avalanche – “Two Years”

It’s hump day, and like many of you we have spent the majority of the work day wondering why it takes so damn long for the weekend to arrive. We cannot give you the tools to build a time machine, nor can we provide you with the financial support needed to quit your dead end job, but we do have a new song from Singapore based metalcore outfit Avalanche that I believe will give you the strength needed to kick this week’s ass.

You may or may not have heard of Avalanche before this moment, but trust me when I …

Graveyard Club

Graveyard Club Proclaim “The Night Is Mine” With Infectious New Single

I will be the first to admit I have never heard of the band Graveyard Club prior to the beginning of this week. Like many unsigned bands making waves on the underground, their buzz is only just now reaching online press outside their local area, but already they are gaining momentum at an alarming rate.

Today, Graveyard Club shared a new single titled “The Night Is Mine.” The sunny and nostalgia-laced tracks brings to mind muggy summer nights spent listening to Joy Division and driving around aimlessly while smoking cigarettes with your closest friends. It’s not about going somewhere or …

Harts 2014

Need A Little Funk In Your Life? Take A Moment To Discover Harts

It’s not every day that Prince compliments a relatively unknown talent, but upon hearing the work of Harts, the man who gave us Purple Rain remarked, “He reminds me of how I was at that age.”

I could go on and on about the way I felt the first time I heard Harts’ latest single, “Angels Walk Below,” but after reading that comment from Prince is there really anything I could write that would sway you more than his word? Harts, whose real name remains a mystery to me, offers a funky take on dance pop that is ripe with …

Fall Under The Spell Of Knuckle’s Dirty Rock With “Living Hell”

I made it a point over the past month to pay more attention to the up and coming artists whose press releases flood my inbox on a regular basis. In a perfect world I would listen to every single promo I received, but with 200+ messages coming in each day, allotting that much time to music discovery is simply impossible. I do click through 20 or so new tracks each day, and today I stumbled upon something I simply had to share.

Knuckle are the latest product of the underground UK rock scene. The group formed after a chance meeting …

Avalanche promo 2014

Singapore’s Avalanche Bring The Heavy With “Plaster Saint”

I love discovering international bands that tackle a sound refined in North America and make it entirely their own. It’s a feat that goes to show the amazing reach and power music has, regardless of nationality, and the latest band to knock me on my ass with their amazing technical prowess is none other than Singapore export Avalanche.

“Plaster Saint” is the kind of crazy, shred-tastic song that is impossible to resist if you’re a fan of modern metalcore. It has the bouncy bass line that runs rampant in today’s scene, only now it has been coupled with the type …
