Umphrey's McGee live Abbey Road Studios album hits the shelves!

On June 18, 2014, members of Umphrey's McGee entered the legendary Abbey Road Studios ready to kick ass and put out a new album but with one small catch...only 12 hours to record. To most, this is a daunting task to say the least, figuring in how much work goes into tracking an album, but it didn't seem to worry the UM boys to much. Most of their fame has come from their mind-blowing live performances. Why stray from a perfect formula? Why not bust it out live?

That was exactly what they did. And what came from their hard-work was "The London Session: A Day at Abbey Road Studios" - a ten-track live album under their own label Nothing Too Fancy Music. A mixture of new and old live favorites make up the first nine tracks of the album, and in typical UM fashion, the tenth is a cover song recreated in the band's own sound. Of course they chose to pay homage to those who came before them by busting out a rendition of the Beatles' "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" off their 1969 "Abbey Road" record.

"The London Session" hit records stores today. Head on over to Umph merch to order your physical copy or get your digital download through iTunes!
