Video: The Silent Type

Video: The Silent Type

So . . . we made a new video. Seen through a first person mixed reality lens, the video finds our protagonist swept up in a wild night out where the lines of what’s real and what’s artificial begin to blur. The frenetic-paced video matches the dark energy of the tune as it takes you through a surreal night out in Chicago, ladled with temptation, amplified by soon-not-to-be futuristic technology. Created with our friends at …

Evolution of The Silent Type

Evolution of The Silent Type

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.

Record Store Day Black Friday

Record Store Day Black Friday

Caution: This record is SHARP! Umphrey’s McGee is pleased to unleash this 12″ custom die-cut record, designed exclusively for Record Store Day Black Friday, featuring two brand new tracks from the forthcoming release of ‘it’s not us’ in January 2018. The first single, “The Silent Type”, is classic UM: it’s infections riff rock, the musical equivalent of the record’s unique shape, sawing through your turntable. Side B features “Looks”, an uptempo driving composition that is sure …

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday
