Pop Evil Premiere “Footsteps”

Update #1: Footage of Pop Evil performing “Footsteps” live for the first time ever has also appeared online. That footage, as well as the official song stream, can be found at the end of this post.

Original post: Michigan hard rock juggernaut Pop Evil have shared the first single from their upcoming album, and I’m willing to bet it’s not what you were expecting them to deliver.

“Footsteps” is the first official offering from Pop Evil’s Up, the immensely anticipated follow-up to 2013′s Onyx, to find its way online. The song premiered at noon today, June 1, on …

UTG PREMIERE: Seakings – “Kowloon (Walled City)”

I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but UTG has been undergoing a bit of a transformation over the last month. Our staff, which once included over 30 contributors, has been greatly scaled back in order to better focus our editorial efforts and dedicate more time to connecting people with the music, films, and art we really care about. Covering the latest Billboard or Warped Tour sensation no longer matters to us as much as it once did. What we want more than anything else is to ensure the precious time you have to dedicate to media is time well …

DEATHS Continue To Impress With “Saviour”

Berlin’s DEATHS released two of my favorite tracks last year with “Sold” and “Lonewolves,” which were released on a b/w 7-inch. It took maybe 30 seconds of the latter before I was hooked. I’ve been craving more ever since and I’ve been watching closely as I expect DEATHS to blow up in no time and start occupying spots in the lineups all your favorite festivals.

Early last week, DEATHS returned with their third track to surface. “Saviour” is a tad more upbeat and hectic in its production but the brooding, somber tone is still very much …

Sins Divider

Sins (Joseph Milligan of Anberlin) Streams New Album, ‘Divider’

Ex-Anberlin guitarist Joseph Milligan has begun streaming his brand new album, Divider, under his longtime solo moniker, Sins. Check it out by following the jump below.

Catchy and calculated, Milligan’s latest undertaking is a straightforward alt-rock rager that will no doubt conjure fond memories of Anberlin’s heyday, which isn’t particularly surprising considering he was one of the group’s primary songwriters for well over a decade. If you like what you hear, sound off in the replies.

SINGLE REVIEW: We Came As Romans – “The World I Used To Know”

Artist: We Came As Romans
Song: “The World I Used To Know”
Album: Self-Titled

The evolution of We Came As Romans is entangled with the band’s own passion for storytelling and inspirational lyricism. Their journey is their song, and their songs detail their journey. Having long conquered the world of post-hardcore with multiple albums featuring top shelf production and the perfect combination of sing/scream vocals, the group have now stripped their music to its core, and through doing so found a new sound that marks the beginning of yet another chapter in their already celebrated career.…

Drake-How-About-Now

Drake Drops Unreleased Freestyle During Detroit Performance

Warning: You probably aren’t ready for this.

Drake is not spending much of the summer on the road, but right now he’s currently joining Future on the far too short ‘Jungle’ tour that is hitting arenas nationwide. Last night the run stopped in Detroit at the Palace Of Auburn Hills, and the man behind Views From The Six decided to share something never before released with the crowd of thousands who had paid to see him perform. We weren’t there, but fortunately for us (and you), someone shot a video.

Now you’ve probably seen Drake freestyle before. His flow, though …

Attalus Stream “Albatross,” You Make Room On Your AOTY List

On June 2, Raleigh, NC’s Attalus will be releasing one of the most ambitious and most impressive albums of 2015. Get prepared to fall in love and immerse yourself in a 16-track concept album entitled Into The Sea.

Today, the four-piece are streaming “Albatross,” the seventh track on their massive forthcoming release. Like a mixture of The Receiving End Of Sirens, Thrice, Emery and The Dear Hunter, Attalus offer up an easily accessible and highly enjoyable concoction of stellar, layered instrumentation, harmonious vocal layers, energetic choruses, and plenty of emotion. It really fills the hole TREOS has left in …

Refused Stream Second ‘Freedom’ Single, “Françafrique”

On June 30, Refused will unleash Freedom, their first new album in nearly two decades. In anticipation, the Swedish four-piece have begun streaming a poignant new track titled “Françafrique.”

Though considerably “lighter” than the previously released “Elektra,” the hardcore titans’ latest offering is no less affecting, drawing its power from the vivid imagery of frontman Dennis Lyxzén. Some exceptional guitar work further adds to the fun, and over the course of five minutes it becomes increasingly clear that, even after 17 years, Refused are still willing to take risks that most of their peers wouldn’t dream of. …

The Weeknd Drops “The Hills”

The Weeknd may still be enjoying the success of his single “Earned It,” but he’s back today with a new single and video fans are sure to enjoy.

“The Hills” arrives online just two days after a number of unexpected leaks from The Weeknd hit the net (including the incredible “I Can’t Feel My Face“). Whether this release is a response to those leaks or an attempt to better control the conversation remains unclear, but the quality of this material is undeniable. There is very little to the song that is outside the typical sound of …

The New Sorority Noise Album Will Probably Change Our Lives

Anyone who is connected to the alternative and indie rock worlds with even the faintest of interest no doubt failed to make it out of 2014 without hearing The Hotelier‘s phenomenal album, Home Like NoPlace Is There. And that’s perfectly fine. It’s great, in fact. That album is incredible and it deserves to be heard by as many people with ears to hear that exist today, but as far as buzzworthy records go it’s high time a new king be crowned and Sorority Noise are currently making a damn strong argument that their upcoming release be next in …

We Came As Romans Stream “The World I Used To Know”

Michigan natives We Came As Romans continue their transformation from breakdown-loving bad boys to radio rock titans this afternoon with the premiere of “The World I Used To Know.”

It has been a minute since fans last heard from We Came As Romans, and in that time the band has spent a lot of time developing their skills as both songwriters and musicians. The band reportedly wrote forty songs for their upcoming self-titled album, but in the end decided that only ten of those tracks were good enough to make the actual record. “The World I Used To Know” was …

Rick Ross & Big Sean Remix Future’s “Commas”

Following a lackluster 2014, Future has spent the first half of 2015 reaffirming his positing amongst the hip-hop elite. His latest offering, “Commas,” boasts an ego-driven flow that has spent the past several weeks winning over rap fans coast to coast. The song hasn’t cracked the top of the charts as of yet, but a new remix making the rounds online this morning leads us to believe that will soon change.

Late last night, May 25, a new remix of “Commas” found its way online. The tracks strips all of Future’s verses from the original effort and replaces them with …
