It Looks Like Boys Night Out Are Making A Comeback in 2015

If you were a part of the mid-late ’00s emo/hardcore scene, then you were likely familiar with Boys Night Out. From their classic debut album Make Yourself Sick to their revered sophomore release Trainwreck, they were one of the pioneers of the post-hardcore genre at that time.

After six years of not playing together, it seems that the band may be making their anticipated return to the music world. After creating both Instagram and Twitter pages, buzz has been on the rise as to what the band may be up to. Fans are hoping for a ten-year anniversary …

Cedar Boulevard Stream New Song, “A Raven Like A Writing Desk”

Resonant of early-era A Day To Remember blended into the instrumental force of bands such as Pierce The Veil and smooth vocal timbres from You Me And Everyone We Know, these Toronoto newcomers who go by the name of Cedar Boulevard are undeniably putting the heavier elements of pop-punk onto the foreground.

This first track, which is called “A Raven Like A Writing Desk,” is taken from their upcoming self-titled EP. The theatrical introduction gates listeners properly for a hard-hitting, mosh pit-inducing ride. Check out the new song below and let us know what you think.…

Palisades Stream Upcoming Album, ‘Mind Games’

Here’s an exciting announcement for post hardcore fans: New Jersey group Palisades is currently streaming their brand new album, Mind Games, in its entirety.

Mind Games is scheduled for release Tuesday via Rise Records, but you can listen to all ten tracks from the album on YouTube right now. The six-piece band has gone through some stylistic changes since their appearance in 2012. On first listen, their latest album sounds quite a bit like an ISSUES release, which shouldn’t be too shocking for a band that once collaborated with vocalist Tyler Carter.

Artist: Corpus
Album: The Sliding Scale of Morality
Genre: Post-Hardcore, Indie

Sydney duo Corpus have been causing quite the ruckus down under over the last three years with their unique brand of indie-tinged post-hardcore and riotous live shows, earning them dizzying acclaim from some of the scene’s most discerning ears (including Sydney resident and frontman of The Used, Bert McCracken).

I Prevail

I Prevail Cover Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space”

Believe it or not, there are still some bands out there who are churning out high quality cover songs. We’re in a time where just about every metalcore or pop punk artist is covering popular songs, but not all of them are good.​ If you’re looking for a new cover to check out, I would recommend giving I Prevail a listen. They recently released a cover of Taylor Swift‘s “Blank Space,” and it’s worth listening to. The post-hardcore outfit added their own sound to the song, making it sound like it could have been an original track by them. …

Albums and Artists That Will Transcend My Year

I’d like to close out my first year of music journalism with a short list of short lists in typical end-of-the-year fashion. It’s been a wonderful half-year here at Under The Gun Review and I’ve had the pleasure of working with and getting to know some very talented and passionate journalists in my time so far. On top of that, I’ve spoken to some of my favorite artists, and even got to voice my opinion on some really excellent pieces of music. Of course, 2014 has also been an excellent year full of fresh and inspiring music. At the end …
