Jesse Ware You and I Forever Vid

Get Cozy in a Photobooth in Jessie Ware’s “You & I (Forever)” Video

Earlier this year, R&B crooner Jessie Ware dropped her second full-length, Tough Love, to good marks. While we’ve been treated to some unreleased singles and radio hits, she’s decided to surprise fans with a brand new video for “You & I (Forever),” and the video is a cozy clip that will leave you warm with love.

In the “You & I (Forever)” music video, Ware brings out friends and loved ones for a series of goofy photobooth shots in a film stand. It’s simple in nature, but the genuine love present makes up for any bluntness. Keep your …

James Blake’s New Album Will Drop in “About Five Months,” May Feature Kanye West

James Blake isn’t one to take a break. While the UK crooner and electronic producer’s last album, Overgrown, came out in 2012, he’s been hard at work since, touring the globe, DJing sets, and dropping new songs “200 Press” and “Building It Still.” Now, the singer-songwriter has announced his next album is on the way.

In an interview with the Miami New Times (via CoS), Blake said that the new album is “seventy percent done” and should drop in “about five months.” For those of you following his mini updates, the Kanye West rumors are …

Enter Shikari

STREAM: Enter Shikari – “The Last Garrison”

Our friends from across the pond, Enter Shikari, just unleashed the new track “The Last Garrison,” the first single off of their upcoming record, The Mindsweep. The track definitely is in a new distinct musical direction, with a heavier focus on the drum and bass and electronic elements. However, this is still Enter Shikari, so the grand scale and heavy hardcore-influenced sections are alive and well.

The thing I love about Enter Shikari is their ability to really push themselves in a wide variety of directions, exploring what it means to be a band. “The Last Garrison” is …

Gnarwolves ST

REVIEW: Gnarwolves – ‘Gnarwolves’

Artist: Gnarwolves
Album: Gnarwolves
Label: Pure Noise Records

Let’s be honest, it’s pretty hard for a pop punk band to climb out of the grave that the “Defend Pop Punk” movement has become. A name like Gnarwolves backed up by images of pizza slices and skateboards can either serve as a calling card to invite new listeners into something they already know they’re going to love, or as a warning sign for the bored and weary to stay as far away as possible.

Yet Gnarwolves are more than just another skin-deep act — or at least that’s what one would …

Placebo

Placebo Touring for First Time in Seven Years

UK rock group Placebo haven’t been in the news much in the past few years. They teased new music in 2012. They dropped a new album in 2013. They sued The Weeknd for his blatant “Machine Gun” sample in 2013. Now, in 2014, they’re ready to hit the road touring — for the first time in seven years.

The band will cross the pond in October to play 11 stops in North America. They’ll be stopping by Brooklyn’s Escape Music Festival as well as Boston, Montreal, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles and more. Their latest album, 2013′s Loud Like Love, …

Creeper 2014

Creeper Make Our Knees Weak With Their Video For “Gloom”

UK rock outfit Creeper are winning over hearts around the globe this year, and their march towards total genre domination continues this morning with the release of a music video for “Gloom.” If you’re not a fan already, strap in. Your life is about to change.

Taken from Creeper’s critically-acclaimed new EP, “Gloom” is a pitch perfect mix of emo, pop, and alternative influences being channeled through a feel good rock sound. The lyrics tell you the whole affair is rather melancholy, but your feet will find it almost impossible to resist dancing, or at the very least tapping along …

Hours uk rock 2014

Hours Make A Strong Argument For Being Your New Favorite Band With “Crossfire”

We love finding new alternative rock bands who have discovered a new take on music that catches us completely off guard. It’s not always about reinventing the wheel altogether. Sometimes all you need to stand out is a good sound with catchy hooks, infectious melodies, and lyrics that actually have something to say.

Enter Hours. Hailing from Norwhich, this up and coming act have released only two songs to date, but already they have begun developing one of the most dedicated fan bases in the UK rock underground. Their latest single, “Crossfire,” falls somewhere between the sound of Mallory Knox …

Neck Deep 2 (D. SKANK PHOTOGRAPHY)

UTG TV: Warped 2014 With Neck Deep

Neck Deep is one of the fastest growing pop-punk bands we’ve seen in a while. Want evidence of that? In our interview with the band, Ben and Fil told us how they’d be super starstruck by one man and one man only: Mark Hoppus of blink-182. Four days later, they announced that they’d be opening for the band at London’s Brixton Academy next month. If you go on the band members’ social networks, you can see a photo of them hanging with Hoppus himself.

This has been a busy year for Neck Deep. The band released their first full-length through …

Warped Tour Not Returning To The UK This Year

Unfortunately for music fans across the Atlantic, this year’s Vans Warped Tour will not be held in the UK. Even though their Facebook page has not been updated since May, according to theirs and Kevin Lyman’s Twitter accounts they could not get a good lineup together in time. You can read the tweets for yourself by taking a look below the break.

Warped Tour is arguably the biggest annual festival around that features popular and up and coming artists in the pop-punk, metalcore, electronic and post hardcore genres. While this news must be very disappointing to fans in that area, …

Jimmy Page Responds to Led Zeppelin Glastonbury Rumors

Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis said earlier this year that he was “sure” Led Zeppelin would play his festival one day. Now, guitarist Jimmy Page has responded to his comments and addressed the chances of the band headlining in the coming years when talking with BBC Radio 6 Music host Shaun Keaveny.

“I haven’t heard about anything since the 2007 O2 gig, but you never know do you,” said Page. “You never know what’s going to happen tomorrow, do you?” The band has carved a spot in music history as one of the most important rock bands not just for …
