Umphrey’s McGee; Surprise Album it’s you, On Tour, Red Rocks July 5-7

Umphrey’s McGee continue the celebration of their 20th Anniversary with the release of it’s you, the surprise companion album to it’s not us.

PRESS HERE to listen to the full album. The band’s virtuosity and encyclopedic knowledge of diverse styles is front and center once again, punctuated with snarling guitar riffs and teeming with crisp acoustics. PRESS HERE to check out Relix‘s first look and an exclusive interview with the band.

 

“After completing the latest recording sessions and digesting the volume of material we’d tracked, it grew increasingly clear that a single album wasn’t realistic,” keyboardist Joel Cummins explained. “The collective level of enthusiasm around the majority of these tunes made us reluctant to leave much on the cutting room floor (rarely the case).”

 

The 10-track LP is a dynamic statement which showcases the versatility and world-class musicianship that is at the band’s core. By harnessing the energy of their live performances into the precision of their studio craft, it’s you encapsulates a range that is rarely found in a single band. From the fresh and vibrant opening single “Triangle Tear“, to the ACDC-inspired rhythm chiming through “Attachments“, to the iridescent personal tune “Push & Pull,” the album offers something for Umphrey’s McGee‘s legion of fans and newcomers alike.

 

Just four months ago Umphrey’s McGee, who recently graced the cover of Relix, released it’s not us to critical acclaim – an amalgam of big, heavy rock elements and guitar wizardry, to softer moments, jazzy flourishes, propulsive percussion, and jams. PRESS HERE to check out “Looks” and PRESS HERE to check out “Half Delayed.”

 

In celebration of the release of the album, Umphrey’s McGee will bring their acclaimed live show to major cities across the country on their upcoming ‘it’s you‘ headline tour this summer. This will include festival stops at The Peach Music FestivalThe Werk Out Festival  and Lockn’ Music Festival, where Umphrey’s McGee will be accompanied by Jason Bonham, son of John Bonham, for an entire set of Led Zeppelin music. Full routing below.
