Umphrey's Mcgee - "Words" - Song of The Day (5/30/15)

Umphrey's Mcgee is a band who's music is ever expanding. One minute they are funky and dance driven, then without missing a beat they will turn to straight metal and hard rock. Breaking down the barriers between genres isn't a task most bands can accomplish but in the nearly two decade existence of Umphrey's Mcgee, the six-piece band has mastered the art and in all honesty, they make it look simple.

Today's song of the day comes from their 2006 release "Safety in Numbers." "Words" is a slower song but carries an uplifting spirit. It is rarely played during live performances, which is where the band has acquired most of their fame.

Umph will soon embark on their summer tour, which was kicked off quite nicely last weekend at Summer Camp Music Festival, where the band played five sets and absolutely destroyed it. Don't sleep on this band. They continue to grow at a rapid pace and who knows where they will be a year from now.
