Umphrey’s McGee Announce Album, Single, and Tour


Chicago’s Umphrey’s McGee enters its second decade together with their hardest, darkest, and most artistically cohesive album to date. The new album hits streets on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009, when Mantis casts another Windy City family into the limelight. Over 2 years in the making, Mantis pushes the envelope in composition, arrangement and group interplay. In an Umphrey’s McGee first, the album offers 100% new material – a drastic change of pace for a band whose typical modus operandi is to work out the material live on-stage before recording studio versions.
