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 …

REVIEW: Captain, We’re Sinking – The Future is Cancelled

Artist: Captain, We’re Sinking
Album: The Future is Cancelled
Genre: Punk
Label: Run For Cover

They’re not particularly outspoken about their principles, but if we trace the progress of Captain, We’re Sinking we find a band that has grown whilst making few compromises along the way. The recording is cleaner and the arrangements are stronger, but The Future is Cancelled is brimming with their trademarks of lengthy, drunken tales of desperate characters; almost story-songs but a bit more down to earth.…

Citizen 2013

STREAM: Citizen – “The Summer”

Michigan rock outfit Citizen have released a stream of their brand new song “The Summer.”

This song is coming off of their forthcoming album, Youth, which has a drop date of June 11 through Run For Cover Records.

Guitarist Nick Hamm told MTV, “We thought ‘The Summer’ was a good meeting of Mat’s and my writing styles. It ended up being one of my favorites on the record because of that. Mat’s lyrics touch on the repercussions of losing someone you care about, which make it both a personal song, yet one anyone can relate to.”…

Daylight’s Frontman Discusses Band’s Recent Change Of Direction

AbsolutePunk.net recently had an interesting chat with Taylor Madison of Pennsylvania’s Daylight where the vocalist/guitarist gave in his take on how the band is receiving criticism for giving their sound a 90′s style facelift on their latest album, Jar. Follow the jump to read the complete snippet of the interview.

I didn’t know people accused us of that. If they do, fuck ‘em. We’re pretty ‘do whatever the hell we want’ individuals, so if people think that, I don’t give a shit. What band doesn’t want more people to like their band? But

Daylight Release ‘Jar’ Three Weeks Early To Help Battle Piracy

Daylight and Run For Cover Records have made the band’s new album, Jar, available digitally three weeks ahead of the original release date in an effort to combat piracy.

Released along with a message from the label, Jar has been one of the more anticipated RFC releases of the year. Early praise for the album has been deafening, but it seems a member of the press NOT ASSOCIATED WITH UTG leaked a low quality rip of the album and now the band and label are scrambling to minimize the amount who first experience the album via leak. You can …
