WATCH: Vinnie Caruana Backed by Bellwether Play Two Tracks From The Movielife

As exciting as it is to see I Am the Avalanche back in action, there are still a few of us holding out hope that The Movielife would someday play shows again. So anytime Vinnie Caruana performs old Movielife tracks, we get even more pumped, as this is is about as close as it may get for awhile.

Last year he was caught playing “Walking on Glass” on his acoustic tour. This time, Vinnie shows up to front a couple of tracks (“Face or Kneecaps” and “Jamestown”), and is backed by Bellwether. This collab happened at a benefit show for …

Hopefully after seeing round one of this series you now know all of the words, too. This batch includes some IATA tunes from their popular 2011 release.

I Am The Avalanche - 'Wolverines'

UTG TV EXCLUSIVE: I Am The Avalanche In-Store Part 1: ‘Wolverines’

Last week, our buddies in I Am The Avalanche dropped their third album worldwide. Wolverines is the highly anticipated follow-up to the band’s 2011 release, Avalanche United.

One week prior to release, the band streamed the album in its entirety through Billboard. By the time Looney Tunes CDs hosted IATA’s in-store appearance, most fans already knew the words to all of the new songs. Conveniently scheduled on St. Patrick’s Day, vocalist Vinnie Caruana let the crowd feel his excitement to perform the new songs for the first time ever while also encouraging any of those celebrating the holiday to …

ALBUM STREAM: I Am The Avalanche – ‘Wolverines’

Brooklyn New York’s I Am The Avalanche are scheduled to release their newest full-length, Wolverines, next week (March 18) through I Surrender Records, but as of this morning, you can stream the 10-track effort by heading over to Billboard.com.

Recorded at The Barber Shop Studio in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, this will be the group’s first album since 2011’s Avalanche United.

On this newest attempt, the four-piece has progressed their unique brand of gritty pop punk, resulting in a more structured, introspective final product. This is especially apparent on tracks like  “The Shape I’m In,” which …

I Am The Avalanche Release New Song “Where Were You”

I Am The Avalanche have released another song from their new album Wolverines, proving once again that they’re one of the best bands in pop-punk. You can check out “Where Were You” after the jump, or over at DIY where it’s streaming exclusively.

This track is one of the strongest new Avalanche tracks that we’ve heard so far. The band seems to tailor their songs for a live crowd while simultaneously creating strong and cohesive records, and this song is no exception. It seems like Wolverines covers more anthemic ground than its predecessor, with more focus on memorable hooks.…

I Am The Avalanche Announce New Album, Stream “The Shape I’m In”

Few bands have mastered the art of the punk rock chorus like I Am The Avalanche. Their 2011 full-length, Avalanche United, was full to the brim with anthems like “Brooklyn Dodgers,” so it’s no surprise that the first single from the follow up, Wolverines, is just as catchy. “The Shape I’m In,” which you can stream over at Esquire chronicles frontman Vinnie Caruana’s battles with physical injury, which might be ironic considering the amount of stage dives the song is likely to bring about in the future.

Wolverines was produced by the band’s drummer, The Ratt, and …

I Surrender Records Stream Anthony Raneri Song Off ‘Our Voices’

I Surrender Records will be putting out an EP on November 25, entitled Our Voices. The record features an all-star lineup of vocalists from some of UTG’s favorite bands.

Yesterday, the label posted Anthony Raneri‘s (Bayside) track called “String Me Along.” Raneri’s recent solo EP, New Cathedrals, was self-released through Gumshoe Records in 2012. The record showcases a different side of Raneri which isn’t necessarily portrayed in Bayside songs.

In addition to Raneri, the EP will feature Vinnie Caruana (I Am The Avalanche/Peace’d Out), Adam Lazzara (Taking Back Sunday) and Chris Conley (Saves The Day).

The Wonder Years Announce Acoustic Holiday Tour, Offer Free Cookies

The Wonder Years may be one of the biggest pop punk bands around right now, but that doesn’t mean they’ve abandoned intimate shows and engaging with the fans on a personal level. The band opened a pop up shop in their hometown of Philadelphia, PA to promote the release of The Greatest Generation in May, where they hung out with fans, played ping pong, and hosted on a series of acoustic shows and movie nights.

That mentality has carried over into their upcoming acoustic tour, which will be hitting intimate venues on the east coast in December. Vinnie Caruana (I …
