“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.
