TOOL

Tool Add Dates To US Tour

Tool have significantly expanded their previously announced plans to embark on a US tour beginning in March 2014.

This morning, a new series of Tool tour dates found their way online. The dates are still primarily on the west coast, but the expansion’s added performances should offer at least a glimmer of hope to those of us located elsewhere that the band may be considering additional shows throughout the year. You can view the current itinerary below:

3/4 Spokane, WA @ Spokane Arena
3/6 Portland, OR @ MODA Center
3/7 Eugene, OR @ Matthew Knight Arena
3/9 Reno, NV @ …

MUSIC VIDEO: Fit For A King – “Keep Me Alive”

Solid State Records’ Fit For A King have released visuals for “Keep Me Alive,” a brand new cut that will be featured on the re-release of the group’s debut record, Descendants. It is fitting that the track will be found alongside cuts from Descendants as it actively favors the record’s sound rather than the overall heavier atmosphere of their most recent release, Creation|Destruction.

Follow the jump to check out the music video for “Keep Me Alive” and be sure to let us know your thoughts on the song in the comments section below.…

LISTEN: Fit For A King – “Ancient Waters” (Remastered)

Texan metalcore outfit Fit For A King have made it a point this year to tease an announcement concerning the re-release of their debut record, Descendants. After months of waiting, the first taste of the project is finally here, and it can be streamed after the jump. While still recognizably “Ancient Waters,” the rerecorded, reproduced, and remastered track finds the group experimenting with their sound and making some notable changes, especially in regards to vocal styles.

The re-release of Descendants (which also features a brand new track) is set to drop November 25, but pre-orders are available here for those …

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…

thirtyseven

REVIEW + INTERVIEW: Thirtyseven – ‘This Is What I Want’

Artist: Thirtyseven
Album: This Is What I Want
Genre: Pop-punk
Label: Blood & Ink Records

Pop-punk crusaders Thirtyseven have released their long-awaited debut full-length, This Is What I Want, and it appears this high-energy and diverse dose of poppy hooks and fist-pumping gang vocals were well worth the wait. The Texas-based trio successfully mirror fantastic pop-punk and punk rock on This Is What I Want, from “Calling Out,” a track worth of Sum 41‘s Does This Look Infected? to MXPX influenced closing number “Moving On.”…

Machine Gun Kelly Receives Oral Sex On Stage In Texas, Footage Available

Ohio-bred rapper Machine Gun Kelly has tried extremely hard to build a reputation for being one of the wildest emcees in music today, and over the weekend he took those efforts to new heights when he received oral sex in the middle of a performance in Dallas, Texas.

Yes, you read that previous sentence right. Machine Gun Kelly was given a blowjob in front of a room full of people who had paid to see him perform, and you better believe people captured it on camera. We’re not exactly sure what events preceded the encounter, but it’s evident from the …

UTG PREMIERE: DWHB – “Top Down Low” Music Video

Every once in a while, I take a break from movie-watching or album-spinning and I get social. I don’t mean going outside or hanging out with friends. I’m talking Twitter, yo. Heh…

One of the things I find best about Twitter is the instant ability to ask a bunch of people a question. My followers are pretty chatty and they field a good response, but they are generally all the same. They follow me for my tastes because they (normally) fall in line with theirs. So when I ask my followers a question about music or film, I like to …

Austin City Limits

Austin City Limits Releases Schedule

Austin, TX’s slogan should include not only keeping the DIY-centered city “weird,” but musical too. Austin City Limits returns this year for two weekends, October 4-6 and October 11-13, and the schedule has just been released. Much to festival-goers’ delights, the two weekends have a pretty similar schedule. Much to festival-goers’ disappointment, there are some tough clashes to choose from. Overall, though, I think it looks better than last year’s great lineup.

Pick and plan your (dream) schedule from the set times announced on their official website. Some of the tough clashes include Jimmy Eat World/Smith
