UTG CONTEST: Win a Copy of ‘Resolution’ on Blu-ray Combo Pack

If you’re a regular reader here on UTG, you may recall our praises of the indie horror film, Resolution, or our interview with its directors, Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson, where we claimed Resolution to be “one of the most legitimately creepy and intense horror genre films we’ve seen in some time. Without any over the top visual effects and a unique twist on the supernatural theme, the sense of reality and terror in the film has certainly resonated with us and the film’s ending has led to some conversations amongst us that have seen it.”

The film was …

Pusha T Reignites Beef With Lil Wayne Via Twitter, Jae Millz Responds

Pusha T and Lil Wayne have had a beef with each other over the last few years or so, and they aren’t afraid to talk smack about each other publicly. Hours after Lil Wayne’s Dedication 5 dropped, Pusha T tweeted I think it’s safe to say, you really lost it…, apparently meant for Lil Wayne. Instead of Lil Wayne firing back at Pusha T, Jae Millz went after him on Twitter, in a very long string of tweets. You can read both men’s tweets by taking a look below the jump.

Sleeping With Sirens 2013

Kellin Quinn Calls Critics Out On Twitter

There has been a lot of debate over the $80 package Sleeping With Sirens offered for their tour. Some fans loved it, while a lot of other people hated the idea of a fan paying $80 for a one on one with Kellin and a polaroid (among a few other perks). One of the people who spoke out was Bring Me The Horizon‘s Oli Sykes. Kellin decided to take a little bit of time to respond to some of the criticism he’s received over the last few weeks and mentions Oli Sykes a couple of times. Check below for …

The Maine

The Maine Tweet They “Owe It To You” Not To Sell VIP Packages

A fan tweeted The Maine asking them if they were planning selling VIP tickets on their upcoming tour. Considering the fan asked if they would be selling “$80 polaroids,” they were likely referencing the VIP package that was announced by Sleeping With Sirens which has been quite the hot topic over the last week or so. The Maine promptly responded and stated that they owe it to their fans not to charge for VIP tickets, and that they will hang out after the show to say hi.

Taking Back Sunday Are Back In The Studio

Exciting news came down today from Long Island rockers, Taking Back Sunday.

This marks the sixth studio album by the band, and the third to include all founding members. Guitarist and vocalist, John Nolan, and bassist, Shaun Cooper, parted ways with the band after their breakthrough 2002 album, Tell All Your Friends. It wasn’t until 2010 when the …
