Rocky Votolato Shares “The Hereafter”

Just a short time after announcing his decision to sign with No Sleep Records, Rocky Votolato has released the first single off his highly-anticipated new album.

Premiering on Stereogum earlier today, “The Hereafter” is a song that could only be written by someone whose led a truly interesting life. It oozes with a lifetime’s worth of experience having been boiled down to a four-minute song in the best possible way, with images of broken teeth, scraped hands, and weary eyes littered throughout. If Rocky were to try and encapsulate his career with a single song, this would no doubt be …

Kanye West Drops “Only One” Video

Kanye West has shared two new songs so far in 2015, and both have showcased surprisingly new sides of his dynamic persona. One of those songs now has a video, and earlier this week Ellen helped Yeezus share those visuals with the world.

It’s hard to believe anyone who cares about Kanye West has yet to hear “Only One.” The song, which was released at the the top of the new year, is written by West from the perspective of his deceased mother. It’s a ballad of sorts, with Beatles member Paul McCartney playing keys to accompany Kanye’s soft croon. …

Death Cab for Cutie Release “Black Sun” Lyric Video, Announce Tour

Death Cab For Cutie have shared the lyric video for “Black Sun,” the first single off their highly-anticipated new album, Kintsugi, and also the first track to surface from the band since the departure of longtime guitarist, Chris Walla.

It’s hard to go into a new song from someone like Death Cab For Cutie without having some type of expectation for the material on deck. Death Cab have carved a beautifully dynamic niche for themselves in the world of music up to this point, and “Black Sun” certainly does not disappoint. That said, it also doesn’t sound all that …

War Games May Be The Next Band To Change Your Life

I was fortunate enough to spend several weeks participating in the Vans Warped Tour during the summer of 2012. My job, which at the time involved working for a music industry start-up focused on new artist discovery, sponsored a stage on the world’s largest traveling festival that offered more than 20 up-and-coming artists a chance to perform. We needed someone on site every day to coordinate and I was the lucky one chosen to carry out that task. It was a life-changing experience, and along the way it provided me several opportunities to discover new bands with a lot of …

UTG PREMIERE: Marco Featuring Keano Spitta – “WITIT”

We have been featuring a lot of new talent as of late, but the amount of fresh hip-hop appearing on UTG has admittedly been low. We aim to change that this afternoon, however, and we’ve recruited some of our favorite young talents to help make that happen.

Kicking off 2015 with a bang, WFFW member Marco is back at it with the uptempo ride-out anthem titled “WITIT.” This is the third single from his anticipated mixtape, “$tudio Night$,” and in our opinion it’s one of his best tracks to date. Produced by Tay on the Beat, the song features Marco …

Drug Church Release New Song, “Work Shy”

Drug Church will be releasing their new EP, Swell, on February 10 via No Sleep Records.

With the premiere of “But Does It Work?” off the EP, it’s an indication that the Albany, NY post-hardcore quintet has taken a step away from their sound they delivered on 2013′s Paul Walker.

The band has debuted another track off the upcoming EP, called “Work Shy” (via Noisey), and it’s an even bigger departure with its wave-induced hard rock delivery. You can give the track a listen below.…

Knuckle Puck Share Unreleased Song, “Townsend”

With the reissue, the band has also included an unreleased song called “Townsend” to be featured on the release. Stream the song below after the jump.…

A three-way split has been released today by Snarl, comprised of Parker Cannon (The Story So Far), Power Wrench (Mat Kerekes of Citzen) and Michigan’s new skate punk band Spitback.

This split is filled with hardcore-influenced progressions and even takes the next step with nu-metal-esque melodies reminiscent of Rage Against The Machine. Stream the split below and let us …

Motley Crue Stream Final Single (Ever), “All Bad Things”

Motley Crue made headlines earlier this week when they revealed a slew of new tour dates that will extend their final tour as a band until New Year’s Eve 2015. Last night, they took the hype surrounding their final bow one step further by sharing the video for their final single ever. Much to our surprise, it kind of rocks.

“All Bad Things” is a track born out of the singles that made Motley Crue a household name. It’s a fun, riff-heavy rock thrill ride that boasts a catchy chorus even your grandmother could learn in a single refrain. On …
