Umphrey’s McGee Add West Coast And Southeast Dates To Fall Tour New single “So Much” is out ahead of upcoming album Asking For A Friend
April 22, 2022 - Chicago, IL - In addition to their annual Red Rocks run, summer festival appearances, and a c0-headlining tour with The Disco Biscuits, everybody’s favorite eclectic rockers Umphrey’s McGee are extending their Summer/Fall tour through October will a slew of newly announced dates. In September, the band will hit tried and true favorites in San Diego, L.A., and Oakland before turning east through the mountains toward Reno, Salt Lake City, and Bozeman. After a brief time off, UM will return to the stage in Richmond, Virginia, before heading south to North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. A full list of dates is below and ticket links for each show can be found at umphreys.com/tour.
This announcement comes on the heels of the release of Umphrey’s McGee’s new single, “So Much,” from their upcoming full-length Asking For A Friend—a collection that legendary music journalist and author, David Fricke, calls “the best and most emotionally direct album Umphrey's McGee have ever made.” “So Much” is a guitar and keyboard-soaked sonic dreamscape that never loses forward momentum due to the band’s uncanny arranging abilities. “There’s so much left, I know. There’s so much left undone,” sings guitarist Brendan Bayliss. Fans can check out “So Much” now at this link and pre-order vinyl or pre-save Asking For A Friend before it comes out on July 1st.
UM’s upcoming album Asking For A Friend is accompanied by a behind-the-scenes podcast through Osiris Media entitled Talking Circles. With episodes leading up to the album release and stretching through the summer, Talking Circles will tell the story of the writing and recording of this set of brand new songs. Three episodes are currently live, including the backstory of “So Much,” right here.
