Evolution of The Silent Type

Fans of Umphrey’s know that attending a show comes with the distinct possibility that you may hear the birth of a song. Maybe you’ll recognize a familiar riff that you’ve heard before but isn’t yet a song of its own. Or perhaps you’ll hear that familiar melody repeated in a different genre with vocals improvised on top. These instances are rarely planned, and though the best ones can be elusive, they are some of the …

What the hell is Spotify Pre-Save?

What the hell is Spotify Pre-Save?

Great, we thought you would never ask. Think of pre-save as the streaming equivalent of a pre-order. When you pre-save, all new album tracks will automatically be added to your Spotify library the moment they are released (wink, wink). You’ll also automatically start following UM on spotify (if you don’t already) to ensure that you’ll get updates anytime new Umphrey’s music is released. Pretty simple, pretty awesome.  We have created this handy widget for you …

Umphrey’s McGee entered I.V. Labs Studio in Chicago in November of 2016 to record what would become the band’s eleventh full-length studio album. The result was it’s not us, the most vibrant, mature expression of the band’s growing studio prowess to date. “We decided to go in for a week, live, eat, and breathe Umphrey’s McGee,” recalls Joel, “we’re known as a strong live band, but we take so much pride in our writing.

Throwback Thursday

It’s unfortunate that we used our best two album titles on our first two albums (definitively not our best music), the stunning debut ‘Greatest Hits Vol. III’ and our sophomoric follow up ‘Songs for Older Women.’ #tbt #throwbackthursday #mamu

A closer look at the CD face

A closer look at the CD face

The typewriter served as the inspiration for many elements of the packaging for #itsnotus, and the hammers specifically were the motivation for the CD face design. There is a lot of eye candy in there for you that love the details. 👀 🍭 We wonder how much longer we’ll be making actual compact discs, but we think this just might be our favorite yet. Every Deluxe Version includes the CD or you can pre-order it …
