Modern Baseball Release New Music Video For “Pothole”

Philadelphia’s frontrunners, Modern Baseball, have recently released a music video for their song “Pothole” off of their most recent full-length, You’re Gonna Miss It All via Run For Cover Records.

A low-key, dramatic cinematography vibe for an appropriately dramatic acoustic track, this new video features black and white footage of the band’s different shows and their travels across the country.

You can check out the music video for “Pothole” below:…

Hostage Calm Stream “A Thousand Miles Away From Here”

Are you ready to Die On Stage? If not, let us help you prepare…

Hostage Calm are back, and today they are continuing the promotional run towards the release of their latest studio album with the premiere of a brand new track titled “A Thousand Miles Away From Here.” The song, which premiered on Noisey shortly after 9AM this morning (August 18), is one of the most avant-garde songs in the band’s catalog. That’s not to say the track sticks out as being a change of pace entirely or something completely unexpected, but in comparison to other singles, “A …

REVIEW: Slaughter Beach (Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball) – ‘Dawg’ EP

Artist: Slaughter Beach
Title: Dawg EP
Genre: Emo, Alt-Punk

The question of why artists don’t just put out their far from flawless mini collection of songs they hastily write while on the subway or at a McDonalds always crossed my mind. Why do we always have to expect these things to come in shiny packages and red bows? Why can’t we receive the same presents in a barely-96kbps-“is-this-the-demo?” format? Luckily for us curious folks, Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball appears to share similar sentiments. He recently, under the name of Slaughter Beach, unexpectedly put out a three-track EP, entitled Dawg,

Basement Announce Surprise EP, Stream “Summer’s Colour”

When news broke earlier this year that Basement were planning a reunion tour, I’ll be the first to admit I was little disappointed to learn the band was not also planning to release more music. If you felt the same, fret not!

Today, Basement and Run For Cover Records joined forces with our friends at Noisey to reveal that the band will indeed be releasing a new EP called Further Sky later this year. The group also shared the first song off the album, titled “Summer’s Colour,” which you can stream at the very end of this post.

Mat Kerekes

LISTEN: Mat Kerekes – “Forgiveness”

Mat Kerekes, best known as the frontman for Citizen, has just released the first new track from his upcoming solo EP, simply titled Mat Kerekes. The EP will be released June 12, 2014.

Mat has been writing acoustic songs for some time now, though “Forgiveness” may be my favorite piece from him. For all the energy put into Citizen’s powerhouse debut, Youth, there is just as much output put forth in Kerekes’ solo work. Somber, invigorating, and even refreshing, “Forgiveness” is your favorite autumn drive song to be released this summer.

Tigers Jaw Announce New Record ‘Charmer,’ Streaming New Song

After months and months of waiting, Tigers Jaw have finally announced that their new record is titled Charmer and will be out on June 3. The band has released a single from the album called “Nervous Kids” over at Pitchfork, which you can listen to after the jump.

After losing members last year which caused some confusion about the future of the band, Tigers Jaw have continued steadily playing shows and promising new material. The band released “Hum,” the first single from the new album last October, but it is unclear whether that song made the final tracklisting.

UTG INTERVIEW: Seahaven Discuss ‘Reverie Lagoon: Music for Escapism Only’

Seahaven are currently facing what could very well become one of their most significant years as a band. The Torrance, California group recently wrapped up a month-long tour supporting mewithoutYou, and within a week, they will be releasing their risk-taking sophomore release, Reverie Lagoon: Music for Escapism Only.

On top of all of that, they will be embarking on a European headlining tour with Nai Harvest and Battle Lines in April, which will be immediately followed up by a headlining US tour with Adventures and Foxing in May. UTG had the opportunity to catch up with guitarist Michael Craver …

Seahaven Reverie Lagoon Music For Escapism Only Review

REVIEW: Seahaven – ‘Reverie Lagoon: Music For Escapism Only’

Artist: Seahaven
Album: Reverie Lagoon: Music For Escapism Only
Genre: Indie Rock / Blues
Label: Run For Cover

By now, fans of Seahaven are used to sudden change without warning. The California band emerged onto the scene in 2010 with Ghost, a relatively simple thinking-man’s post-hardcore/punk EP featuring equal parts growly vocals and pile ons and slow, grungy moments with introspective lyrics. The band’s first full-length record, 2011’s Winter Forever, ditched the growls for a more mature dive into emo-rock with rigid production and a sense of hopelessness in the lyrics that the record’s title implies. Many longtime …

UPDATED: Basement Tweet For The First Time Since 2012, Internet Gets Anxious

They say nothing good can ever last, and in November 2012 Basement offered further evidence of that being true when they announced they would no longer be a band. Hearts were broken, blogs were written, and more than a few depressed twenty-somethings curled up with their vinyl and a bottle of wine until the pain subsided.

This morning, for the first time since the band said farewell over a year ago, a new update has appeared on the group’s Twitter account. It reads “hi” and makes absolutely no mention of a reunion, but in the first hour alone the message …

Watch A Live Set From Citizen

Feet First Productions recently released a live set of Citizen, from a recent show at the First Unitarian Church in Pennsylvania.

Citizen, who released Youth earlier this year, have been growing dramatically over the last few months. With a spot on this past summer’s Warped Tour, relentless touring, incredible live shows, and a crushing debut release, Citizen have a lot to be proud of.

As you can imagine, the set yields bodies flying from the stage back into the crowd, and vice versa. Watch all the videos here, or follow us after the jump to take a quick look …
