Ghostface Killah Releases Track from ’36 Seasons’

Ghostface Killah is on a creative rampage. Not only does Wu-Tang Clan have new music coming soon, he also has an album coming out in February with BADBADNOTGOOD. And now he’s announced 36 Seasons, a solo effort, which will be released before the year’s end.

This track, “The Battlefield,” also features Kool G Rap, AZ and Tre Williams, and is the second single to surface from 36 Seasons. Clocking in at just under four minutes, we get a quick verse from Ghostface, with some instrumentals that resemble some of the classics from Supreme Clientele. Again, it’s a …

Copeland Stream ‘Ixora’ In Full

After the rumor mill spun with talks of a Copeland reunion and the actual announcement of the first album the band has released in six years, we have finally been given the long-awaited Ixora.

Around here, this has been one of our most highly anticipated releases of 2014, as every single album this band has put out is just a glorious listening session. Aaron Marsh’s beautiful voice may resemble what angels sound like.

The band has put the full stream of the album up on Spotify a week before it’s released. Could this be the comeback of the year? …

Marilyn Manson Announces First Tour Dates of 2015

After giving us the heavy details of his upcoming release, The Pale Emporer, the man by the name of Marilyn Manson, who is known to put on some intensely entertaining live shows — whether it be with stilts, crazy side stage shows or just heavy rocking — has given us some more tour dates to accompany the record.

We recently showed a video of Manson performing “Beautiful People” with Johnny Depp and Ninja of Die Antwoord, and who’s to know what he has up his sleeve with this string of dates?

Check out the dates below, as well as …

Senses Fail Announce ‘Pull the Thorns From Your Heart’

Activity continues from the Senses Fail camp after a summer of playing shows for the anniversary of Let It Enfold You and just recently announcing a new record.

Yesterday the band announced the title of the album, Pull The Thorns From Your Heart. The album will be released in the summer of 2015.

It appears that the album is going to play off of some of the themes and sounds from the 2013 release of Renacer. Lead singer Buddy Nielson has mentioned that in a release:

“This album is a continuation of the sound we established on Renacer

Marilyn Manson

Marilyn Manson Sets Release Date for ‘The Pale Emperor’

Just last month we got to hear the first track, “Third Day of a Seven Day Binge,” off the new Marilyn Manson full-length, which we now know will be called The Pale Emperor.

Well, we finally have the full details of the album, including the tracklist, release date and album art. The Pale Emperor will be released January 19, which will also include a song Manson wrote for Salem, a new series on WGN, which is called “Cupid Carries A Gun.”

Check out all the final details of the album, as well as the track “Third Day …

Drive-rescore

The 1975 Take “Medicine” For Zane Lowe’s Re-score of ‘Drive’

As previously reported, Zane Lowe’s re-scoring of BBC’s Drive has got some crazy names on it, including one of the years biggest explosions, The 1975.

Well, now we’ve officially been able to hear the track, which is titled “Medicine,” from the boys across the pond. It’s very different from most of their self-titled record, which fans have absolutely adored and can probably spew every single word of. It’s one of the most relaxing tracks they’ve released. It very shoegazey and fitting for the band. It feels like a chilled out, sedative ballad that reassures the value of this other …

Damien Rice My Favourite Faded Fantasy

Damien Rice Becomes “The Greatest Bastard” With New Track

Another huge release that we’re greatly anticipating here at UTG is the new Damien Rice album, My Favorite Faded Fantasy. With already hearing the title track and then “I Don’t Want to Change You,” he continually leaves us begging for more. And now we have “The Greatest Bastard.”

He doesn’t stray from his niche in this song, but he continues to blow our minds with his craft. He crescendos and decrescendos so strategically that it crushes our hearts and makes us fall in love at the same time. As he sings “Am I just dreaming once again? …

Stream Antarctigo Vespucci’s Energetic New EP

Cross-country collaborators Chris Farren (Fake Problems) and Jeff Rosenstock (Bomb the Music Industry!) practically broke the internet when they released their EP Soulmate Stuff under the moniker Antarctigo Vespucci earlier this year, and now they’re doing it all over again.

Simply put, I’m So Tethered packs in some of the best aspects that we’ve come to love from the group’s debut release into a three-track EP. To top that off, Rosenstock’s vocal presence comes in much more strongly. This all comes in with great timing, since Antarctigo Vespucci will be leaving for their first ever tour …

The Dead Weather Share New Song “Buzzkill(er)”

Last winter we got the pleasure of hearing a few new tunes from The Dead Weather. Both “Rough Detective” and “Open Up (That’s Enough)” proved to be standout tracks from the band, and now with a third this year, entitled “Buzzkill(er),” they continue to pull out surprises.

The track is perfect example of Alison Mosshart’s range in vocals and her ability to make us beg for more with every song. The guitar riffs replicate the motion of a buzz-saw or one that makes two people pull back and forth. It’s a classic tune, so check it out …

Arctc Monkeys Live 2014

Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner Performs New Song With Mini Mansions

The Arctic Monkeys have had quite the year and a half. With the huge success of their album AM, and festivals and touring almost non-stop, they’ve become a household name.

Well, now another band, that goes by the name of Mini Mansions, is looking to take their place, with a little help from a friend, by the name of Alex Turner, the frontman of Arctic Monkeys.

They already have some huge friends, including The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, just to drop a name.

Mini Mansions have a new album coming out in the beginning of 2015, called The Great

trophy eyes

REVIEW: Trophy Eyes – ‘Mend, Move On’

Artist: Trophy Eyes
Album: Mend, Move On
Label: Hopeless Records
Genre: Melodic Hardcore, Pop-Punk

Australia’s Trophy Eyes are a band whose star is well and truly on the rise, and if their debut full-length, Mend, Move On, is any indication of things to come, then that star is sure to shine very brightly indeed.

An intense, passionate and at times disturbingly honest record, Mend, Move On incorporates all of the elements that have seen these melodic hardcore/pop-punk wunderkinds make the leap from the relative obscurity of a garage in Newcastle on New South Wales North Coast, to the roster …
