Modest Mouse Share First New Single in Eight Years, “Lampshades on Fire”

The title says it all. All in one short day, we were teased with a cryptic message from Modest Mouse on Instagram and even an official announcement from the band regarding new music, as they announced their highly anticipated full-length, Strangers to Ourselves

Well, this morning, we were gifted a new track from the album, called “Lampshades on Fire.”

As someone who had little to no expectations for new Modest Mouse music, I stand still on the fence with the new track. It’s awful, as it contains many characteristics that one would be familiar with when it comes to this …


REVIEW: Angels and Airwaves – ‘The Dream Walker’

Artist: Angels and Airwaves
Title: The Dream Walker
Label: To the Stars
Genre: Alternative Rock

I’m going to spare all of you my history with this band. I have had various opinions about Angels and Airwaves for many years, and it’s all come to a pinnacle with the release of The Dream Walker.

Objectivity was tough in this situation when it came to writing a review, especially as a blink-182 fanboy. Well, I did, kind of. When you go and listen to this album, do what I did. Set aside your Enema of the State obsession and stop wishing …

You Blew It!

You Blew It! Share “Lanai”

After what seemed to be an endlessly busy year for You Blew It!, releasing one of the better albums of the year in January and then putting out an EP covering Weezer’s Blue Album and endless touring, it seems that the band is back with another EP set for early 2015, which will be entitled Pioneer of Nothing.

The first track from the EP is “Lanai” and it doesn’t stray from the post-emo perfection that this band has replicated/perfected.

The band also has plans for a tour with Tiny Moving Parts starting in late January also. Check the …

Angels & Airwaves

Angels and Airwaves Stream ‘The Dream Walker’

On the eve of Angels and Airwaves‘ highly anticipated follow-up to Love, the band has posted the entire stream of The Dream Walker on Rolling Stone today.

After releasing four of the tracks, including a video for “The Wolfpack,” and so much hype from the head honcho, Tom Delonge, the album is finally here for us to listen to.

The album will be released tomorrow, accompanied by a 14-minute short film entitled Poet Anderson.

Check out the stream of the album below, and be sure to pick it up tomorrow if you love what …

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

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 …


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? …
