SHOWBOX -- ALL AGES
Every day more and more people are tuning in and turning on to UMPHREY’S MCGEE, and for good reason. Like true sons of the American midwest, Umphrey's McGee has risen to the upper echelons of the improvisational-rock scene through their seamless compositing of diverse musical influences, from progressive-rock to metal to funk to folk to jazz-fusion to classic song-based rock & roll, all woven together with infectious melodies, thought-provoking lyrics, pristine harmonies, blistering musicianship, and rollicking grooves that keep dem bones a-shaking throughout the course of their patented sonic sagas. Umphrey's McGee is proud to announce the release of their third studio album, Safety In Numbers, in stores nationwide on SCI Fidelity Records, April 4. Produced by UM and their long-time engineer Kevin Browning, and recorded in the band's hometown of Chicago, Illinois, Safety In Numbers features eleven amazing tracks, including many never-before-heard songs. With special guest musicians Huey Lewis and Joshua Redman, and cover art from renowned album designer Storm Thorgerson (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, etc.), Safety In Numbers represents the next step in the growth of Umphrey's McGee.
