  • Born Cages Premiere Video for 'Rolling Down the Hill'

    New York City-based band Born Cages is a group that definitely knows how to bring the rock. The quartet's arena-sized energy was attractive (and big!) enough to catch none other than Guns 'N Roses' attention, leading them to open shows for the icons in 2012. A year later, the group released its critically acclaimed EP The Sidelines, and is planning a full-length album to hit the streets early next year.

    Yahoo Music is pleased to premiere "Rolling Down the Hill," from their EP, for fans to get a first look. Enjoy!

  • The Birth of 'Bela Lugosi's Dead': David J Releases Memoirs of Bauhaus, Love & Rockets

    Post-punk pioneering outfit Bauhaus is probably the best band available to commemorate Halloween, having had an undeniable influence on countless other dark-flavored artists since its inception in the late '70s. Those who are fans of the band's glittering dark legacy will definitely be excited about this particular Halloween treat: Bassist David J's brand-new memoir, Who Killed Mister Moonlight? (Bauhaus, Black Magick and Benediction) for which he's kicking off an international book tour this week.

    The book is filled with memories of Bauhaus's first days -- including the composition of their best-known classic, "Bela Lugosi's Dead" -- all the way up to their quick and explosive demise several years later, and eventual reunion. David J also reveals details about his following highly successful collaboration, Love & Rockets, as well as his personal spiritual journey throughout all those crazy years.

    For those who are expecting a tome full of grave "dark entries," David J's narrative is

  • The Living Sisters Premiere Video for 'Kadoka, South Dakota'

    They aren't blood sisters, but the women who make up the Living Sisters share a deep love of vocal harmonies that runs through their blood! Eleni Mandell and Becky Stark formed the group nearly a decade ago, adding Inara George and Alex Lilly down the line to round out their quartet.

    Their critically acclaimed 2010 Vanguard debut, Love to Live was followed by last year’s EP, Run for Cover. While each woman has a thriving solo career, together they create harmonies that recall vintage sister acts of the ‘50s.

    Yahoo Music is excited to premiere the video for "Kadoka, South Dakota" from their holiday album Harmony is Real: Songs for a Happy Holiday, which came out this week. The record includes the Sisters' takes on holiday classics, as well as a variety of originals designed to brighten up the season.

  • Caught a Ghost Premieres Video for 'Sleeping at Night (Dear White People Remix)'

    Jesse Nolan and Tessa Thompson -- the latter who stars in the critically acclaimed film Dear White People -- head up Los Angeles's Caught a Ghost; a band which blends a multitude of different genres including soul and electronica. Their debut album Human Nature came out in April of 2014, and their music appears in several TV shows and films, including two songs on the Dear White People soundtrack.

    Yahoo Music is excited to premiere the video for "Sleeping at Night," which was remixed for the movie and holds a special interest for the artists regarding its inclusion in the film.

    "One of the things I find so amazing about Dear White People is the way in which it handles the concept of identity," says Nolan."In the film, the characters are constantly crafting their identities, attempting to overcome their binary ways of thinking that thrive on opposition. I wanted to make a video that reflected our own take on this idea."

  • Twenty One Pilots Flip for Texas A&M, Crowd Flips Right Back

    Twenty One Pilot's Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun are a duo that seem to be just one of those that are perfect for the college scene: They have an enormous yet still somewhat arcane buzz about them, their music can't be classified easily into one genre, and they're really, really darn infectious to listen to. When the two traveled to Texas A&M University to play the campus as part of Yahoo's On The Road series, it was no surprise that the crowd welcomed them with open arms.

    The duo waxed rhapsodic in a humorous interview preshow with fellow musician/Texan Brandon Hassan, joking about pre-stage rituals involving pickle jars filled with animal blood (we're pretty sure this is all made up), who they'd like to have as a sponsor ("Yahoo, and YooHoo"), and what band they'd love a dream tour with ("This is a really easy question"... sarcasm intended).

  • Jake Owen Premieres Lyric Video For 'What We Ain't Got'

    Jake Owen may have a bit of a rep as a party boy enamored of beaches, go-kart racing, and general reckless living, but on his latest single "What We Ain't Got" he definitely can shift gears into serious mode -- surprising his fans with his heartfelt delivery about lamenting love lost.

    The tune hit the airwaves this summer, and now Owen has a lyric video to accompany the plaintive track. Yahoo Music is excited to premiere the first look at this, which will likely win him even more admirers to add to his growing roster.

    "What We Ain't Got" is the third single from Owen's fourth studio album Days of Gold, which was released in late 2013. The singer will be featured on the lineup for 2015's Stagecoach Festival, and if you'd like to keep up with his fall schedule and tour dates, check here.

  • From Hollywood Starlet to Girl Next Door: Brantley Gilbert's Newly Engaged

    Country star Brantley Gilbert made headlines all over the place in early 2013 when he announced he was engaged to One Tree Hill actress/singer Jana Kramer -- a match that seemed to come out of nowhere, as the pair had remarkably managed to keep their relationship secret prior to the big reveal.

    The adorable Nashville couple broke up a few months later, both keeping a low profile regarding the split. However, it seems that Gilbert has managed to pick himself up nicely: He revealed Monday that he's engaged again -- to a very different kind of woman.

    "I met this little girl 10 years ago," he explained live on the Bobby Bones show, noting that his new fiancee is definitely not in the spotlight. "She's a hometown girl who teaches school about a mile up from my house."

    He also revealed that many of his most romantic songs, including "More Than Miles" and "You Don't Know Her Like I Do" were written about his new sweetheart. One thing he did not disclose, however, was his bride-to-be’s name –
