Umphrey’s McGee Will Release New Album in 2014

Umphrey’s McGee is set to release a new album within the next year, according to an interview with keyboardist Joel Cummins.  Sixteen tracks have been recorded for release, nine of which have been played live before along with seven brand new songs.

Cummins told RVA Mag that the album will have a heavier rock feel.  He continued explaning that in a time where true Rock and Roll bands seem few and far between, “everything has kind of shifted more into the electronic vein.  So we kind of feel that this is the perfect time to put out something that really showcases that [heavier] side of the band.”

Umphrey’s has not put out an album since Death By Stereo (2011) but are currently on tour with electronic jam band STS9.
