Church Tongue pummels with the provocative album, Hell is Empty

If you know hardcore music and this blog, then you probably also know of Church Tongue. These guys first entered my radar in a real way a few years ago when I woke up to a text from a certain Jeff Stuckel. It read something like the following "Hey Ryan, Church Tongue has a video that's about to go ...

Columbus Covers Columbus ’19: To Kill A Monster

When talking about Columbus and its music scene we all have bands that stick out to us. Bands that have a special place in our hearts. Bands that we love. For me one of those bands is To Kill a Monster. As one that isn’t from here, TKAM is a band that stood out to me and me feel at home every time I ...

I remember when I first started seeing the name, it was often. But I never listened or saw them live. Then I ...

Columbus Covers Columbus ’19: Clemens and Co.

If you follow Tuned Up or just stop by from time to time, then you know that we are huge fans of festivals. Over the years we have done Q&As for festivals (duh), we post/write about festivals we like, we have sponsored a few, and we even have our festival, Steadfast Fest (March 9th by the way). The ...
