Blink-182 Announced ‘Untitled’ 10-Year Anniversary Shows

After a weekend spent putting fans on the edge of their seat, Blink-182 have confirmed the anniversary performances most believed were already on the way.

Blink-182 are scheduled to appear on KROQ in Los Angeles at 730AM PST this morning, which is the time most believed the big ’10-year’ news would be revealed. To our surprise, however, KROQ jumped the gun on the announcement and revealed plans for two Los Angeles based Untitled shows for early November. That’s right, just two shows, and they’re both on the West Coast. Everyone else would be wise to head to Priceline now. The …


The Fall Of Troy Reuniting For Three Shows In Texas, Playing First Three Albums In Full

Most reunions that have happened have come on the tenth anniversary of a band’s biggest album. The Fall of Troy will reunite this December to perform their first three albums in full with the original lineup; other sites are incorrectly reporting they will perform their entire discography, but this is not the case, as the band has four studio albums: The Fall Of Troy, Doppelgänger, Manipulator, and In The Unlikely Event (this also ignores two studio EPs, Ghostship and Phantom on the Horizon).

The band posted the following message on Facebook:

Well well well…

Get Involved

Get Involved Announce Summer Shows, Alter Name Slightly

Get Involved are a new group formed by members of Thursday, From Autumn To Ashes, Glassjaw, and Judge. They started off as Get Involved, then were Get Involved!, and now are apparently Gt Nvlvd!, according to their press release. This recalls memories of when This Town Needs Guns became TTNG back in January.

The post-hardcore supergroup has only a few shows to do this season, but one of them is surprisingly large: opening up for Taking Back Sunday. Any band without a record deal should be happy for that.

All of the shows take place in the northeastern United States, …

Starting at noon today, UTG has learned that Brand New will be announcing a handful of shows around their scheduled September appearance at Riot Fest in Chicago. PropertyOfZack already located one gig in upstate New York, and we can tell you exclusively …
