Watch: Umphrey’s McGee – “Loose Ends” (Live at the Tabernacle)

May 17, 2013 No comments yet

Umphrey’s is very, very good at what they do and anyone who has the slightest interest of working in the music industry should take notes on their ‘listen-to-your-fans’ business model. They have been slowly teasing their upcoming live release “Live at the Tabernacle”, which was filmed at the venue in Atlanta during their four-night New Years Eve run. Every progressive-rock band needs a good single, and though they have been melting faces at sold-out shows for the last fifteen years, has only released one.

“Loose Ends” has potential for being a great second single if they were to include it on their next album release. It has that 90s rock-n-roll sound and doesn’t stray away from what we are used to hearing from them. Though a lot of their hardcore fans (who just want 15-minute jams) may disagree, it’s a step in the right direction. But, regardless of what they pump out in the studio, attendees are guaranteed to leave with a smile on their face after seeing them in concert.
