Figured not everybody uses Twitter but there are always nuggets of information being dropped on there about the band.  This is the thread to share those tweets.

Via Euphonic Masters at 4:30pm today:

Cutting a new album for @umphreysmcgee today, very cool record featuring killer mixes by @manchez13




Via Joel Cummins @goldlikejoel at 7:30pm today:

We've got a good surprise for late June, esp. for travelers.  And just confirmed something amazing for late July.  Summer is shaping up.



So Linear was at least recorded...whether or not it's on the actual album or a b-side that's pretty excellent news.  Excited to see what us "travelers" have in store for late June...Alaska ter?

I got a bunch of nice slim fit slacks from eddie bauer that will custom hem them to the 1/4" and also any waist size for <$50 a piece. Definitely would recommend.

linear is about as "radio friendly" as um gets, i think it deserves to be on the album.

Listen here, I've heard two shows before his time, two with him, and I don't know how to play a single musical instrument. I'm an expert.

I would suspect RR to be in June more so than July based off that tweet.  I'm not sure if Joel would consider RR "amazing" at this point, unless it had some extremely good opening acts.  It is pretty amazing id imagine,, but it is pretty much expected to be sometime this summer.

The Linear would work wonderfully with the "rock-themed" album along with Puppet String which has already been confirmed.

Agreed on RR not really be "amazing" at this point. I really hope The Linear isn't on the album. It's spawned some great improv, but I don't care for the song itself.

Alaska Ter, pretty much kang'd: http://www.citizen-times.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2014302110035&gcheck=1

Quote
Some bands that play Asheville breeze in and out without ever noticing much about the city. But not Umphrey’s McGee, which has been playing here for years.

“It’s a gorgeous place to visit,” said the band’s founder, singer-guitarist Brendan Bayliss. “And the arts scene is bustling at all times. As a musician, going into a town like that is inspiring. You can go a little left of center (with the music) and it will be received with an open mind. You don’t have to play it safe.”

The band is constantly on the road.

“The only states we haven’t played are Alaska and South Dakota,” he said. “And we are talking about crossing Alaska off the list. We are figuring out a way to make that happen.

“We are running a business at the end of the day and we won’t go there if it’s not the right move.”

The band is working on new material and will be dropping some of those songs into the current tour. And it will continue its tradition of doing some covers, he said. “When you have six guys (in the band), you have six different options (of what to play),” Bayliss said.

“I think all of us realize what an opportunity we have,” he said. “We have been doing this for 16 years and when you do something that long, it becomes part of your identity. Why not do it well and focus on it?

“My goal from the beginning was to not get a real job. In another 10-15 years, I will have completely succeeded in that goal. That’s motivation!”

The band is mostly working rooms now that seat 1,500-2,000 people, he said. “There are quite a few rooms where we haven’t played,” Bayliss said. “When we started, we were in 100-person rooms, playing for 20 people.”

came here to post The Linear... I hope it's just a bonus track or something

The Linear would work wonderfully with the "rock-themed" album along with Puppet String which has already been confirmed.

You think? I've always thought of it as on the dancier side of the spectrum--more of an in-between, sure (it's no booth love, but it's closer to that than say, a Domino Theory). For that reason, I see it more as a bonus track.

Another reason is I notice the file name is marked .VIP. As in VIP version of the album? As in bonus track?

Happy to have a studio version in any case!  :horns:
