Six-member rock band Umphrey’s McGee has been together for over 18 years. Throughout the group’s tenure, they have released nine studio albums and sold over 4.2 million tracks online.
Formed on the Notre Dame campus in South Bend, Indiana in the late ‘90s, the band released its eighth studio album, “Similar Skin,” on their own label, Nothing Too Fancy (N2F) Music.
“Umphrey’s McGee are more than just a rock band — through nearly two decades, they have proven to be on the cutting edge of both music and technology, super-serving their fans through a community that stretches from the campus of Notre Dame to the hallowed halls of Abbey Road,” states the band’s online biography.
On Nov. 11, 2016, Umphrey’s McGee released the album “Zonkey.”
“An album of 12 unique mashups, conceived and arranged by the band, ‘Zonkey’ is as seamless as it is bizarre, playful as it is razor sharp. Bits and pieces of classic songs are culled from 40-plus years of popular music from ‘70s reggae to ‘80s pop to ‘90s metal and everywhere in between.
“From Radiohead mashed with Beck, The Weeknd with Fleetwood Mac, Talking Heads with Bob Marley, Metallica with Gorillaz … nothing is off limits,” continues the bio.
