2018 release. Behind the near non-stop touring, Umphrey's McGee continues to carve out time to harness the energy of their live performances into the precision of it's studio craft. It's Not Us is the most vibrant, mature expression of that growing studio prowess yet. The evolution of the songwriting is a reflection of life lived, of confidence gained. Life is relentless, and so deserves a relentless soundtrack. For a band that is influenced by everything, there is clearly no fear to tread anywhere. The musical colors are pushed around with a fluidity that is both niche and accessible. In a world rife with ADD, hitting play on it's not us is like hitting shuffle on your entire family's music library. From vulnerable, stripped down acoustic ("You & You Alone") to ferocious, blistering rock ("Dark Brush"), It's Not Us encapsulates a diversity that you rarely find in a single band. It's all over and it's all here. It's quintessential Umphrey's.
