Fans of Umphrey’s McGee can rejoice, as the band’s upcoming Hall of Fame: Class of 2014 live album will be released digitally and on CD on Oct. 9. The vinyl release date is not yet confirmed, but it will be in early November.
The progressive improvisation jam band from Indiana has compiled more than four-and-a-half hours of music from their 2014 tour to put together two sets to be included on the live album. Class of 2014 features 22 tracks from 15 live shows last year, including a 17-minute rendition of “Hurt Bird Bath” from their date in Binghamton last October.
From the Umphrey’s McGee website, the digital version of the record is available to be pre-ordered for $10.99. CDs for Class of 2014 are available for $23.99, while vinyls are on sale for $29.99.
Fans that pre-order the album will be eligible to participate in the band’s “Hall of Fame Wall of Fame” mosaic. Pre-orderers will be invited to upload a photo of their choice (themselves at an Umphrey’s McGee concert, hanging out with a band member, etc.), to be included in the picture compilation. These fans will then be sent a high-resolution version of the piece of art in a format of their choice.
The group will next play live Sept. 24-26 in Charleston, South Carolina, before Umphrey’s much-anticipated Halloween and New Year’s shows in Milwaukee and Denver later this year.
