You Can Now Listen To Jeff Rosenstock’s New Album In Full

Jeff Rosenstock, the man behind the genesis of the late Bomb The Music Industry!, is back with more of his solo musical endeavors. Scheduled for a March 3 release via SideOneDummy, the Long Islang singer-songwriter will finally be releasing We Cool?, the followup to his first solo release of I Look Like Shit from 2012.

Though he has certainly kept busy with various other projects (Antarctigo Vespucci, The Bruce Lee Band), fans have been eagerly awaiting the unique content that Rosenstock brings to the table whenever he puts out music by himself.

Blur Magic Whip

Blur Announce First New Album in 12 Years, Share “Go Out”

Damon Albarn has said time and time again that Gorillaz will reunite. Fans know to take his word with a grain of salt, but recently that proved to be true. Every promise of a new Blur album, though, seemed far more of a stretch given it’s been 12 years since their last album. Turns out Albarn, once again, wasn’t blowing smoke. The British icons behind “Song 2″ and “Coffee & TV” are returning for real.

Their new album, The Magic Whip, drops April 27. It’s the band’s eighth album and their first since 2002’s Think Tank. In …

Charli XCX Taylor Swift

Watch Charli XCX’s Punk Cover of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”

Britain’s pop-meets-punk singer-songwriter Charli XCX put out her excellent sophomore LP Sucker last year to applauding reviews. While she’s busy supporting that album, Charli XCX took some time to stop by the BBC’s Live Lounge to perform a cover of Taylor Swift‘s “Shake It Off.” Considering the two are friends, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. And given Charli XCX’s fondness for breaking the rules of pop and fashion, her twist on the mainstream hit shouldn’t come as a surprise, either.

In classic Charli XCX style, she turns “Shake It Off” into a pop song for fists in …

Rotting Out Debut Hard-Hitting Music Video For “Born”

Hardcore outfit Rotting Out are always the front runners when displaying a raw and energetic show, as I’ve been lucky enough to witnessed myself. With the release of their debut album The Wrong Way in 2013, the Los Angeles quintet were given more exposure with their hectic live show as they supported the release across the globe.

You now have the chance to see a live Rotting Out performance in all its glory, in the comfort of your own home, with the release of their newest music video for “Born.” Premiering on Noisey, the song is a two-minute ripper …

Death

Death Announce ‘N.E.W.,’ the Band’s First Full-Length Since 1976

No, you didn’t misread that, it really has been nearly 40 years since the Detroit punk band wrote and recorded their debut LP, …For the Whole World to See. 

Much has changed for the trio since then, including the passing of guitarist David Hackney and having their unique story told to the world thanks to the rockumentary, A Band Called Death. Those who have seen the film (and we strongly advise you do), would know that as an operating unit, Death is certainly alive and well thanks to Bobbie Duncan entering the picture upon the band’s mainstream discovery in …

From sleeping on strangers’ couches, to playing in any venue that will welcome you, the scenes depicted in this video are some that will look familiar to anyone who has chased a dream of entertaining audiences.

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Morals – “Question”

Under The Gun Review is pleased to bring you the premiere of Morals’ first official music video for their new track “Question.”

When it came to picking which track to create a video for, the choice was obvious for the band.

“We thought that the format of the song really lent itself to a music video concept,” says bassist Dan Roth. “We love videos that have a message or a story, that are more than just a band playing. We scrutinized every track and made sure that could we present each in the best way. We felt this is the …

REVIEW: You Blew It! – ‘Pioneer of Nothing’ EP

Artist: You Blew It!
Album: Pioneer of Nothing EP
Genre: Emo, Indie
Label: Jade Tree Records

Jade Tree Records is one of the best record labels. If you just take a quick scroll through their releases over the past 25 (?!) years, you’ll see that Jade Tree bands simply just make great music. There are probably very few, if any, bands on their roster that I do not like on a pretty basic level. Jade Tree hasn’t been all that active over the past five to six years, but it appears that the label is gearing up to start releasing …

Trash Talk Announce U.S. Winter Headlining Tour

Crazy California hardcore punks Trash Talk had an eventful 2014 with the release of their latest record No Peace, doing a free tour, and even taking out a drone helicopter with a beer can while performing on stage.

To start off 2015 with a bang, the band has announced a full U.S. tour that will see stops at almost every major tour market in the country. The Odd Future Records-signed band will be starting on February 13 at the Constellation Room in Santa Ana, with the tour ending on March 20 at the Echoplex in Los Angeles. Two …

Kill Lincoln Announce Spring Tour

Kill Lincoln, ska-punk subhumans from DC, just announced that they will be playing their loud guitars and horned instruments that you stopped playing in 8th grade all across the United States this coming March of 2015. They’ll be hitting a lot of the major markets on their 23-day journey, so if you’re in the area, or not in the area at all and just like ska-punk a lot, you should definitely make a point to lace up your skankin’ shoes.

Joining them on some of their Southern dates is Survay Says!, so check out the poster to see …

The Sidekicks Running In The Nerved World

The Sidekicks Stream New Album, ‘Runners In The Nerved World’

Alternative punkers The Sidekicks have had an awe-inspiring couple of months, due largely in part to their signing with Epitaph Records back in November in order to release a follow-up to 2012′s Awkward Breeds. In signing with the ever-growing label, they will be releasing a new album called Runners In The Nerve World on January 20.

To further promote the release, the band teamed up with Stereogum to stream the album in its entirety. Don’t let the slow aspect of the album fool you, for there are numbers that certainly still have the fast punk rhythms reminiscent of their …

Blacklisted-2014

STREAM: Blacklisted – “Burnt Palms”

Philadelphia’s Blacklisted is one of the most important hardcore bands in recent memory. Some may read that statement as hyperbole, but the band continuously dares to reinvent themselves, putting out one emotionally-excruciating record after the next, all of which having their own unique qualities. Today, Blacklisted released another song off their new record, When People Grow, People Go, titled “Burnt Palms.” The song is more reminiscent of some of their older material, specifically Heavier than Heaven Lonelier Than God-era Blacklisted, while still adding a new spin to the sound. The song is searing, mean, and is the kind …
