Watch Dustin Kensrue Run Around Aimlessly In New Video For “Gallows”

Carry The Fire is Thrice frontman Dustin Kensrue‘s fourth and latest solo musical endeavor. It was released late in April, not too long after Thrice’s reunion announcement.

“Gallows,” a dark and upbeat track in possession of a lot of pulse, is one of the ten songs in the collection. The new music video, which is available below, fittingly features black and white footage of a lone man frantically running around town.

You can check out Kensrue’s solo tour dates and Thrice’s tour dates below along with the new video. Carry The Fire is available for purchase here.…

REVIEW: Attalus – ‘Into The Sea’

Artist: Attalus
Album: Into The Sea
Label: Facedown Recprds
Genre: Rock

To paraphrase UTG co-owner Brian Lion, the band’s name elicits thoughts of metalcore and the album’s art could grace the cover of a black metal release, but Into The Sea itself is not metal.

Interestingly coming soon after the 10-year anniversary of The Receiving End Of Sirens’ monumental release Between The Heart And The Synapse, Attalus’ Into The Sea
