Umphrey's McGee Add Sixth Festival To Summer Tour, Remix EP Out 4.24


Umphrey’s McGee has been announced alongside The Black Keys, Snoop Dogg, and TV On The Radio as a top act at the inaugural Catalpa NYC Music Festival, to be held at Randall’s Island on July 28 and 29. Along with other high-profile festivalsand tour dates – including Bonnaroo, the band’s interactive UMBowl III on April 27, and their first-ever sUMmer school in August – the “most innovative improvising rock group” (Relix) is in the midst of another nonstop banner year. Full Catalpa details here:

In addition to Catalpa, Umphrey’s will perform at the Hang Out Festival in Gulf Shores, Al., STS9’s Re:Generation Festival in North Plains, Or., and the Bear Creek Music & Art Festival in Live Oak, Fl., which they will headline. They have also announced a new batch of summer tour dates with very special guests G. Love & Special Sauce, including shows in Philadelphia, Boston, Cincinnati, and Indianapolis. Later this year, the band will return to the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Co., where they will headline a two-set show with Railroad Earth on September 14th.

Also on deck for Umphrey’s is the fan-inspired ‘Death By Remix’ EP. After offering up free remixable stems for four of their latest tracks from ‘Death By Stereo’ (ATO), nearly a thousand crowd-sourced remixes were sent in through Indaba Music ( The submissions cover a wide variety of styles, including electronic and hip-hop, not surprising for a band like Umphrey’s that is known for their genre-bending sound. ‘Death By Remix,’ which features the six winning submissions, is out April 24th on ATO Records.
