LIVE REVIEW: Circa Survive at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA (12/13/14)

There’s always something special about welcoming a band home after a long tour. One would think that this band (and the rest on the bill) would be worn out, deflated, and simply spent after a month and a half of straight touring. Circa Survive are not that band. Well, not that tired and exhausted band. They are, in fact, the band that Philadelphia welcomed home with open arms and strong voices at Union Transfer this past weekend.

Opening the latter half of the tour was Baltimore’s Pianos Become the Teeth, fresh off the release of their third, near-perfect record, …

Songs For The Season: Fall Playlist

Autumn may be the most visually rewarding season that nature has gifted us. While all the other seasons are sure to give it a fair fight, there is something about the orange, red, and yellow change in the leaves that gift us new enlightenment and invigoration in the natural world around us.

But what would the striking change in season be without the illumination of sonic assistance? Entering our third playlist for the seasons, UTG is happy to present to you our favorite songs to pair with the crisping air, a nice glass of apple cider, and of course, pumpkin …

Circa Survive / Title Fight / Pianos Become The Teeth Announce Major Fall Tour

Tour announcements are always the best thing to happen, for you never know what bands are booking an outing together. When they do get announced, a lot of the times your jaw will most likely drop at the lineup you will see when it comes to your nearest city.

Today, that has happened (at least to me) with the MAJOR fall tour announcement that Circa Survive and Title Fight, both from the state of Pennsylvania, will be touring the United States. The tour will begin on Nov. 5 at the House of Blues in Boston, MA and will end …

WATCH: Title Fight – “Be A Toy”

Title Fight have released a video for their track, “Be A Toy,” off of their latest release, EP Spring Songs. I reviewed Spring Songs a few weeks back, and absolutely loved it, and think you will as well. You can check out my review for it, here.

The video was shot by friend of the band Susy Cereijo, while they embarked on their most recent European tour. As with most things related to Title Fight’s videography, you will find it filmed on a grainy super 8, instilling the vibe of legendary bands long past.

REVIEW: Title Fight – ‘Spring Songs’

Artist: Title Fight
Album: Spring Songs
Genre: Punk/Hardcore
Label: Revelation Records

I believe we are all here for the same reason at this point. Kingston’s Title Fight have been reassuring their stature at the top of the scene for years now. Floral Green found itself as one of my favorite albums of 2012, while Shed is ever close to my heart.

There should be no surprise that Title Fight’s newest work, EP Spring Songs, is any less of a caliber of polish and craftsmanship than we have seen before. The band’s first release on their new home, Revelation Records, …
