Umphrey’s McGee guitarist Jake Cinninger revealed to the South Bend Tribune over the past weekend that the band will be releasing a new album in January. The guitarist reported that for a year and a half, the group has been working on “a huge body of songs”. Umphrey’s McGee live tour stamina is matched by their fervent pace in the studio, with ZONKEY releasing in 2016, The London Sessions in 2015, and Similar Skin in 2014.
Jake Cinninger on Umphrey’s McGee and their longevity and success:
“Time flies when you are having fun,” he says. “That has been No. 1. We’re friends first and friends like to have fun. We go out there and play music. That is the ethos of keeping the band together. We’re buddies first and play music second.” —Cinninger to South Bend Tribune.
