UTG TV: Warped 2014 With The Word Alive

The Word Alive is one of those bands that’s bound to keep growing and growing. This summer alone, they’ve been bumped up onto the main stage at Warped Tour on numerous occasions, but it’s only a matter of time before they become Warped headliners for the long run.

If you’re a fan of the band, you don’t need an explanation as to why they are one of the most energetic and incredible bands to watch perform live, and if all my forum involvement is correct, Telle Smith has become one of the hottest frontmen to photograph, purely based on his …

Finch Release Album Teaser For ‘Back To Oblivion’

The day has arrived. After multiple hiatuses, lineup changes, two What It Is To Burn anniversary tours, and a stint on this past summer’s Warped Tour, post-hardcore legends Finch have given us the first glimpse of their highly anticipated record Back To Oblivion. This will be their first since 2005′s under-appreciated Say Hello To Sunshine.

The band released a teaser video today in honor of officially announcing the album’s coming even though they have been teasing the release in the past couple of months as well as playing a new song during recent shows. The record is due out …

Blue Swan Records Tour

Icarus The Owl Announced as Special Guest on Blue Swan Records Tour

Moments ago, the post-hardcore community erupted with the exciting news that Icarus The Owl will be joining the Blue Swan Records Tour as the previously billed “Special Guest.” Despite predictions that the guest spot would eventually go to masters of mystery, Secret Band, the selection of Icarus The Owl is definitely fitting for the tour which will feature Hail The Sun and Stolas.

Both headliners are promoting upcoming full-length albums and are expected to be debuting some new material while on the 34-stop tour, sponsored by MerchNow, which will begin on September 3 in Bakersfield, CA. A full …

Alive In Standby

ALBUM STREAM: Alive In Standby – ‘Never Ending’

Even though Alive In Standby have been together for over four years, they are just now getting around to releasing their debut full-length album. With that being the case, they still earned themselves a dedicated fanbase with the stellar singles (and EP) they’ve dropped over the years.

After four years of hard work and dedication, the band will be releasing Never Ending this coming Tuesday, July 29. As a treat for fans, they have put the album up on YouTube to be streamed a little early. Give it a listen below the jump.

I’ve listened to the entire album already, …

Que Sera

Que Sera Sign To CI Records, To Release New Album In September

If you’re on the hunt for a new post hardcore band to add to your music library may we point you in the direction of Que Sera? They are a Rhode Island-based group who are already taking significant steps in their musical career. They not only announced their signing to CI Records, but they also confirmed that their upcoming album, Nomad, will be released through the label on September 23. To celebrate the announcement, the band teamed up with Alternative Press to spread the news and reveal a music video for the single “Atlas.” You can check it out …

Bonfire

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Bonfire – “Before You Left”

Bonfire are a four piece post hardcore outfit based out of Saskatoon, Canada. They just released a short split with fellow Canadian singer/songwriter New Born. Bonfire’s contribution is the emotion-inducing single “Before You Left.” We are happy to have teamed up with the band to premiere the music video for this song. You can check it out below the jump.

“Before You Left” isn’t your typical music video, as it’s a conglomerate of year’s worth of home videos stitched together. It provides a hint of nostalgia for anyone who is familiar with the shaky, often pixelated, home videos from …

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 …

The Color Morale

The Color Morale Stream “Suicide; Stigma” Feat. Dave Stephens of We Came As Romans

Post hardcore act The Color Morale have long been known for their desire to create inspiring music with a hopeful message. That being said, it should surprise no one that their latest Fearless Records release is entitled Hold On Pain Ends.

The album is due on September 2, and is now available for pre-order on iTunes. As an added incentive, those who pre-order will receive an instant download of their latest track, “Suicide; Stigma,” which features We Came As Romans vocalist, Dave Stephens.

You can stream the new single below.…

Watch Out!

10 Years Later: Alexisonfire’s ‘Watch Out!’

Alexisonfire seemed to not so much break up as drift apart. Dallas Green’s City and Colour was catching on with listeners. Wade MacNeil was chosen to replace Frank Carter in Gallows. With two of the band’s key members going or gone, George Pettit posted a statement — which wasn’t the most amicable-sounding — announcing the end of AOF. There was a tour, an expensive box set, a new band for Pettit, and now, nothing but the memories.

Looking back, Watch Out! wasn’t the band’s most successful commercial album – Crisis and Old Crows/Young Cardinals both have more impressive numbers. Watch
