You can check out Under The Gun's recent interview with Breathe Carolina here. They talked about the band's upcoming new album and tour plans for the spring.
From The InterviewI think it's [a continuation of] an evolution that we've just taken. We never sat down and planned anything out, we just write everything write itself and let brains or our emotions take off. I think what fans can expect is the same Breathe Carolina sound, dancey and fun, but we're also going to bring back a lot of the, not obviously hardcore because we have been hardcore, but you know, heavier pop.

This is an odd story to try and follow - but this is what I've pieced together: Two days ago, a woman made an accusation that she was raped in her sleep by the lead singer of Gaza.
