Umphrey’s McGee has announced a set of fall tour dates including a special four-night run at the intimate Brooklyn Bowl in New York City September 6 to 9. Redefining the entertainment experience, Umphrey’s at the bowl offers four nights, eight sets, 16 lanes of bowling and as much fried chicken as you can handle.
After Brooklyn Bowl, UM will headline the Catskill Chill Music Festival on September 10, in Hancock, NY. Other artists preforming at the festival include Conspirator, Perpetual Groove, Dumpstaphunk and BoomBox. Umphrey’s McGee will also be playing All Good, Great South Bay and Hoxeyville Music Festivals.
For the rest of September, the jamming prog-rockers will trail down the East Coast, hitting cities from Portland, ME to Wilmington, MC. Recently the band announced a special Halloween run October 28 to 29 in Atlanta, Georgia with more details to be announced later.
It’s a busy fall for Umphrey’s – their sixth album, “Death By Stereo,” will be released September 13.
“Loads of details coming at you shortly including track listing, cover art and pre-order info,” the band wrote in a press release. “We are pretty jazzed about this one - we think you will be too.”
If fans can’t wait for the release of their newest album, they can pre-order “Hall of Fame: Class of 2010.” Re-mastered into a two-set show format, this “best of” album is a fan-chosen compilation of favorite live performances from 2010. According to the band, “These versions are the essence live: raw, inspired and imperfect.”
