The Swellers Send Us Off With First Leg Of The ‘Call It A Night Tour’

We first found out that The Swellers‘ were calling it quits through the most understated of announcements possible:

We had our first band practice twelve years ago today. It’s been an amazing run. Booking some farewell shows soon. Thank you.

That was followed with more detailed explanations, most notably Jono Diener’s article for Noisey, but those were just details. As for those farewell shows, we now have the first batch of those.

This first leg is Midwest and East Coast only, but given the tour poster’s very explicit “Part 1,” fans in other parts of the US need …

Slipknot Announce US Headlining Tour With Korn, King 810

Hot on the heels of the news that their latest studio album will arrive in October, Slipknot have revealed plans to embark on an extensive US headlining tour later this year.

Kicking off at Knotfest in San Bernadino on October 25 and 26, the ‘Prepare For Hell Tour’ is the first stateside run from Slipknot in several years. The outing will find the Iowa-based metalcore outfit traveling coast to coast over the course of six weeks with support from Korn and Michigan hardcore act King 810. I’m not sure how the hell King 810 made the cut, but they …

Limp Bizkit

Limp Bizkit Release “Endless Slaughter” Music Video

Several weeks after dividing fans with the premiere of their latest single, Limp Bizkit have delivered the official visuals for “Endless Slaughter.”

We were part of the crowd who were less than thrilled with “Endless Slaughter” when it debuted, and to be completely honest time has not changed our opinion. The video, however, is something wholly entertaining whether or not you enjoy the accompanying music. It plays as three short films, much like the song feels like three ideas slammed together. Each sequence has its own tone and story, but it never culminates into anything all that meaningful. …

The Knife Will Soon Be No More

Highly acclaimed and auterist electronic duo The Knife is coming to the end.

Karin Dreijer, one half of the dynamic Swedish duo, dropped the big news in an interview with Dazed and Confused:

“When we finish the tour now in November we will close down, it’s our last tour. We don’t have any obligations to continue, it should only and always be for fun.”

Stereogum has confirmed the breakup with the band’s reps. Once The Knife finishes up their final European tour dates in November, the dissolution will be complete. A brief farewell was posted on The Knife’s website

Gwar

Gwar Are Heading Out On Large North American Tour This Fall

“Dark clouds of war and ill omen have gathered around GWAR. In our hour of greatest peril, Oderus has left us and our enemies stand poised, ready to strike while they sense weakness. But we shall no longer cower in our Antarctic stronghold, awaiting Destiny’s final blow. This Fall GWAR sets out on the most trying quest of our career. We shall scour our leader’s favorite stomping ground, North America, leaving no city unsearched, no venue unraised, and no sheep unmolested. GWAR will venture to the depths of Hell or to the very end of Time itself, and though I …

Australia’s heavy music festival monolith, Soundwave, has made a mammoth lineup announcement for 2015 with Faith No More, Soundgarden, Slipknot, Incubus, Marilyn Manson and several other renowned acts leading arguably the festival’s strongest billing yet.

Expanding to a two-day format for the first time in 2015, Soundwave will take place in four cities across two weekends, with every act playing in each city on an alternating schedule that organizers have simply labelled ‘Day One’ and ‘Day Two.’

The first of what festival organizer AJ Maddah promises will be many lineup announcements for the 2015 festival was made on Wednesday …

It’s essentially the perfect tour for anyone who reads UTG, and it’s hitting many cities between Boston and Michigan in late October. The full list of dates are as …

Attila To Headline Monster Outbreak Tour, Support And Dates Revealed

Party rockers Attila have been tapped to headline the upcoming fall 2014 installment of the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour. The group will be supported by Crown The Empire, Like Moths To Flames, and Sworn In.

Kicking off November 14 in Fort Lauderdale, the latest Monster Outbreak run is quite likely one of the heaviest tours the so-called ‘alternative scene’ will produce before the end of 2014. We have never been the kind of site to praise Attila for their efforts in promoting debauchery, but we are huge fans of everyone else on the bill and cannot wait …

Say Anything are having a pretty rad day. Not only did their new video for “Six Six Six” premiere over on Spin, but Max Bemix announced on Twitter today that Chris Conley will be joining the ranks of Say Anything for the Australian leg of their upcoming tour. The singer, guitarist, and Saves The Day frontman recently wrapped up a massive UK and Europe tour for his band’s 2013 self-titled album.

Watch Bayside Play Dodgeball In “Pigsty” Music Video

Today has been a ridiculous day for new music and new music videos. I’m not sure how close we are to reaching the end of the news roll, but I think we may have found the best clip of the bunch.

Bayside have always been a band that liked to have more fun than their music may have led you to believe. Just because a bunch of guys from New York write sad songs doesn’t mean they’re sad people, and in the band’s new video for “Pigsty” that fact is made crystal clear. You can view the clip, which features …
