Interpol Release New Music Video For “Everything Is Wrong”

The spirited, black and white music video, which you can check out below, was directed by their lead singer and newly-appointed bassist Paul Banks.

In addition to the new music video, Interpol have also recently unveiled their tour dates up until July, all of which …

Ty Segall Announces New ‘Mr Face’ EP, Shares Title Track

The man who never stops making music is once again making new music. Garage rock god Ty Segall is back with a new EP titled Mr Face that serves as a follow-up to last year’s excellent Manipulator. The gatefold boule 7″ EP drops January 13 via Famous Class. Pre-orders are ongoing here.

In anticipation, Segall has shared the title track from the EP on Bandcamp. It’s an acoustic ditty that would work well for any roadtrip through the desert, kicking up dirt clouds on the skirt of Los Angeles. Don’t worry about it being too chill. Segall …

Lyger Stream Ripping New Track, “Skinned Alive”

Following the releases of “Stroke” and “Power Struggle,” London’s up-and-coming rock juggernaut Lyger have provided listeners with an early Christmas gift in “Skinned Alive.”

In what should be tearing up radio waves on repeat, “Skinned Alive” is another impressive release from an act that deserves your attention. Fans of Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age will eat this up. With three massive singles under their belt since making their presence known late in 2013, I think it’s safe to say that Lyger has cemented themselves on our radar and have us anxiously awaiting a …

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 …

Good Luck Varsity May Be Done, But There’s Still New Material To Be Heard

About a year ago, Michigan band Good Luck Varsity went their separate ways after differences between members of the band became too great to continue their efforts.

Rumblings of an upcoming album we’re quickly overshadowed by the splitting of the band, and many were left to wonder if any new material would ever surface from Good Luck Varsity.

Today, former guitarist/singer Evan Baker announced some news about Good Luck Varsity via his new group, American Arson. The statement indicates that the guys had indeed recorded a new album before the dissolution of GLV, though it made no confirmation of …
