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 …


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 …


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.

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

Outline In Color

REVIEW: Outline In Color – ‘Masks’

Artist: Outline In Color
Album: Masks
Genre: Post hardcore
Label: Standby Records

Back in 2012, Outline In Color officially burst onto the scene with the release of their debut full-length album, Jury Of Wolves. That album easily made its way to the number one spot on my best of 2012 list. It’s a great album, and is likely the reason the band was snatched up by Standby Records last year. The band announced earlier this year that they would be dropping their sophomore album this month, titled Masks. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been …

“Tall Hot Blonde” can be streamed right after the jump.…


REVIEW: Northernmost – ‘Northernmost’

Artist: Northernmost
Album: Northernmost
Genre: Post-Hardcore, Indie

Let me first begin by saying I love the name Northernmost. I know one is to not judge a book by its cover, but anyone acclimated with my writing knows just how much I appreciate a northern escapist mindset. With this on the tip of my imagination, when Northernmost’s debut LP Northernmost made it to my ears, I was ready to find where the northernmost point truly is.

Beginning with the somber and calming “Basic Space,” Northernmost introduce us with ease to their vast soundscape. Releasing a swooning quell on the mind, “Basic …

Outline In Color

MUST LISTEN: Outline In Color – “The Souvenir Scheme”

One of my personal favorite bands, Outline In Color, will be releasing their sophomore full length album through Standby Records. The album is titled Masks, and it’s currently set to be released June 24. The band has now premiered the first official single off the album, which is titled “The Souvenir Scheme.” You can check out the lyric video for it by taking a look below the break.

Jury Of Wolves was clean vocals heavy, and while “The Souvenir Scheme” has a decent amount of cleans, the band definitely kicked their unclean vocals up a notch. While I …

Hearts & Hands

STREAM: Hearts & Hands – “Get What You Give”

Though Hearts & Hands just released their debut full length album last year, they are wasting no time in releasing some new music. Earlier this holiday weekend the group released a brand new single titled “Get What You Give.” You can check it out by taking a look below the break.

“Get What You Give” isn’t the best single the band has ever released, but it’s still a good listen. Garrett Garfield is a talented vocalist, and he always knows how to show off his range. At the end of the song they throw in some screaming vocals, which is …
