Fans who have followed Umphrey's McGee for any period of time know that there are only two guarantees: you never know what you're going to get, and Umphrey's always delivers.
How else can a band be relentlessly innovative in both music AND fan relations for 13+ years? The latest expected twist arrived in the form of their newest studio album (and first with ATO Records) ‘Death By Stereo', the follow up to 2009's ‘Mantis.' ‘Mantis' surprised fans with a collection of music never before played, and surprised the music industry with an innovative marketing campaign that catapulted the album PAST the Heatseekers chart, debuting at #62 on Billboard's "Top 200" chart without any radio play or television appearances.
These days, the band plays for crowds from all over the US and beyond, and incorporates a sophisticated mix of cutting-edge technology, including a stellar light show. Its Stew Art concerts redefine live music as we know it, with fans texting to choose the direction of the band's set, while the four-quarter UMBowls (each quarter has a different interactive theme) have quickly become landmark events not to be missed.
