Damon Albarn Hints At New Gorillaz Album in 2016

Damon Albarn has been busy this year promoting his debut solo album, Everyday Robots, which was met with high praise upon release. This means he is keeping the status of famed UK rock outfit Blur under wraps, where he serves as frontman for the band. Most recently though, he came out of the clouds with another project that could once again see the light of day: The virtual cartoon band we know as Gorillaz.

According to Albarn in an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, he has stated that he is in the “process of reactivating” the …

The Smashing Pumpkins Stream “Being Beige” From New Album

The Smashing Pumpkins have released the first song from their upcoming LP, Monuments to an Elegy, via Rolling Stone.

With the album due out December 9, hopefully the bright track can tide fans over until then. Featuring lush atmospheres and pretty guitars grounded by acoustics, “Being Beige” is a soaring track that may divide Smashing Pumpkins fans (though honestly, what doesn’t?), but it sure is a solid track that is consistent throughout.

When speaking on the track with Rolling Stone, singer/guitarist Billy Corgan said that “people always ask me to explain songs, and honestly I can’t. But if there’s …

Beginning with 2013′s Man Of Steel, the DC cinematic universe will continue with 2016′s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. On top of the upcoming film’s release years, there have been a few casting announcements as well.

Ten Years Later: mewithoutYou’s ‘Catch For Us The Foxes’

My first real rock concert was a Coheed and Cambria headlining tour one winter when I was somewhere between 12 and 13 years old. I was waiting in line with my mother (because she’s totally awesome and loves Coheed), and we see a bearded man covered in jackets walk in front of us and empty a pot filled with some hot liquid. Continuing on with our anticipatory waiting, we noticed that once the liquid had evacuated the pot, the man was still there so delicately admiring the pot, as if he was thanking it for holding an entire universe of …

LIVE REVIEW: Coheed And Cambria – ‘Neverender: In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3′

Under The Gun Review sent staff writer, Drew Caruso, to the House of Blues in Boston to experience Coheed And Cambria’s monumental album ‘In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3′ in full. Late on an Autumn evening, the fiction saw the real.

It was certainly difficult to ascertain the correct words to attribute my emotions upon heading to the House of Blues in Boston to experience one of the most influential and monumental albums of my short lifetime. Being only 12 when it first hit my ears, it was the album that made me question how I thought rock music …

Get Lost In Future Of What’s Newest Track, “No War Dance Floor”

Brooklyn band Future Of What has posted a new track titled “No War Dance Floor.” The track comes off the band’s newest album, Pro Dreams, due out January 13, 2015.

Transit Stream “Saturday, Sunday”

Following with the ’12 Days Of Transit’ feature over at Alternative Press, day two brings a stream of “Saturday, Sunday,” the second track off of Transit’s newest album, Joyride, out October 21 through Rise Records.

With day one consisting of album opener “The Only One,” the newer tracks released thus far appear to be sitting better with fans than the band’s previous release, Young New England.

Feautring bright guitars, soaring vocals, and a revitalized sense of energy, “Saturday, Sunday” feels like the groove Transit attempted to reach with Young New England, but wasn’t quite ready to …

‘Camp X-Ray’ Gets A New Trailer

Camp X-Ray, a film that follows a guard at Guantanamo Bay, has been given a new trailer.

Featuring Twilight star Kristen Stewart, and A Separation star Peyman Moaadi, the film will examine a guard’s (Stewart) relationship with a detainee (Moaadi).

The film seems to provoke questions based on the uses of detention facilities at Gitmo, and will be sure to provide controversy and question on both political ends of the spectrum.

Although the film has received mixed reviews thus far, many critics have been praising Stewart’s performance. Moaadi, who will most likely be new to American audiences, provided a …
