Umphrey’s McGee to simulcast live tonight

Umphrey’s McGee announced in a press release from earlier today that they have teamed up with Chicago-area radio station WXRT to simulcast tonight’s Mantis release concert.

The concert, being played at Chicago’s Vic Theatre, will feature an extended live set by the band, and then the new album, Mantis, being played in its entirety while the band signs autographs.

The only track from Mantis which has been played live is “Made to Measure”, and was performed with guest saxophonist Joshua Redman during the band’s New Year’s run at The Auditorium Theatre.

Mantis is officially being released tomorrow by Sci Fidelity. The tour kicks off this Thursday with three nights in Colorado.
