UTG TV: Warped 2014 With Bowling For Soup

“In 1995, I took a semester off from college to give this whole band thing a go. And I’m still on that semester off of college.”

The 2014 Vans Warped Tour features a lot of new talent, but there is nothing wrong with getting nostalgic and kicking it with the bands that have been around the block a few times.

Bowling For Soup has been a band for over twenty years. Despite their efforts to tone things down and relax a bit for family and personal purposes, the guys have never really been too good at staying off the road. …

UTG TV: Warped 2014 With Nick Santino

Earlier this year, UTG TV was able to sit down with Nick Santino and This Century on a frigid New York night. Fortunately, we were able to catch up and reconnect with Santino at Warped Tour in Wantagh, NY. Thankfully, this time it was a beautiful sunny day by the beach.

Back in May, Nick Santino released his first full-length solo record entitled Big Skies through 8123 Recordings, which was a nice change of pace from having to deal with major label executives. This summer, you can catch him every day on Warped at the Acoustic Basement tent, where he …

Shirts For A Cure Robbed At Virginia Beach Warped Tour

It makes me sick that I even have to write this, but Shirts For A Cure, a foundation which donates all proceeds directly to quality of life drugs for cancer patients, was robbed yesterday at the Virginia Beach stop of the Vans Warped Tour.

Mark Beemer founded Shirts For A Cure and The Syrentha J. Savio Endowment (SSE) in 2002. The man, for whom I can personally vouch for as one of the most genuine, hardworking, and caring men in the music scene, is asking for any help that is available.

Here is a statement by Shirts For A Cure …

UTG TV: ETID Meets CYE At Warped 2014

We here at Under The Gun Review like to consider ourselves family. For us, it’s important to keep in mind that the music community is in fact a community. At events like Warped Tour, you get to meet a lot of new people. UTG TV was able to bring together Close Your Eyes and Every Time I Die for the first time.

I’m sure you remember UTG TV’s segment entitled ‘Boozin’ With Buckley‘ we ran with Keith from Every Time I Die not too long ago. Well, unfortunately we couldn’t have a second installment of the boozing (considering …

UTG TV: Warped 2014 With Yellowcard

“I hope that somewhere, whoever is sitting in an office, looking at the internet and counting his money, that he decides that this is a good year for a new Yellowcard record.”

It’s hard to believe that Yellowcard released their classic record Ocean Avenue a decade ago. I’ll spare you the redundant “list-blog” type of writing that is meant to make you feel old or explain to you what you already know. Yes, we were introduced to the violin-wielding pop-rockers quite some time ago.

When the Vans Warped Tour hit Jones Beach in Wantagh, NY, we sat down with that …

Allison Weiss Streams New EP, ‘Remember When’

After weeks of teasing from Allison Weiss (a single here, a stream there), today her five-song EP, Remember When, was made available for purchase, digitally and otherwise. Furthermore, the entire thing is now available to stream as well.

The title track and “Giving Up” are great examples of what Weiss does best: indie pop with heart and a driving beat. Robyn cover “Call Your Girlfriend” showcases the raw emotion in the cracking of her voice. The cover to the EP is grabbing–bubblegum pink with a black crayon sketch of a campfire–and gets you ready to reminisce with Weiss …

UTG PHOTOS: Vans Warped Tour – Long Island, NY (7/12/14)

Under The Gun sent guest photographer, Jenn Curtis, to Jones Beach in Wantagh, NY to photograph the Vans Warped Tour on July 12, 2014.

The Vans Warped Tour hit Long Island last weekend at a new venue but as the same action packed tour we’ve grown to love. Fans of all ages lined the parking lot of Jones Beach anxiously awaiting the long day of music consumption. Of course the lineup featured some huge headlining names such as Mayday Parade, Of Mice and Men, Bayside and Less Than Jake, but there was also a plethora of fantastic bands of all …

A Day To Remember Headline Chicago Warped Tour

The summer of added madness on the Vans Warped Tour continues today with the addition of A Day To Remember to one of the Midwest’s biggest dates.

Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman surprised attendees to the world’s largest traveling music festival this morning by announcing that A Day To Remember will be performing a special one-off headline performance during today’s tour stop in Chicago. The time of the band’s set has yet to be revealed, but if it’s anything like Linkin Park’s appearance earlier this summer, concertgoers can expect a set sometime between four and six o’clock.

I The Mighty Release Video for New Song “Love Your Sin”

If you don’t know post-hardcore phenoms I the Mighty, you absolutely should. The quartet from San Francisco’s Bay Area has been tearing up the scene since their signing to Equal Vision Records back in 2011. After the release of their first full-length, Satori, just a year ago, the band has been all across the United States on tours supporting heavier acts like Letlive and Glass Cloud, as well as their Equal Vision label-mates Say Anything and HRVRD. Today, the band has released a new track entitled “Love Your Sin” which you can view below the jump.
