(PR) Umphrey’s McGee releases a double disc album – a spontaneous and intriguing follow-up to their highly touted spring 2006 studio release Safety In Numbers. Titled The Bottom Half, disc one features ten songs that did not make it onto Safety In Numbers, while disc two offers outtakes, alternative versions of songs, a cappella recordings, and other bits from the band’s 2005 studio sessions. As with Safety In Numbers, famed album artist Storm Thorgerson has designed the artwork for The Bottom Half. Umphrey’s McGee will tour this spring/summer in support of their new release. The list of stops includes a few very special apperances in their hometown of Chicago. The band will perform the National Anthem at U.S. Cellular Field for the Chicago White Sox home opener on April 2nd. This marks the third time Umphrey's McGee has sung the National Anthem at U.S. Cellular Field. Later in April, look for the band to headline the city’s inaugural Green Apple Festival. Umphrey’s performed this Earth Day festival last year in New York City, and is honored to now bring the earth-friendly event to their hometown. Umphrey’s will headline the festivities at the Lincoln Park Zoo on April 22nd, in addition to a very special intimate Vic Theatre performance on April 21st. A portion of the proceeds for the show, and 100% of the sales from an exclusive show poster, will be donated to a Chicago environmental organization to be determined.
