Ume Monuments In Stores Today

Three piece alternative rock band Ume released their sophomore album Monuments today.

Download Monuments on iTunes or order the CD & vinyl from Amazon.

Monuments is the follow-up to the band’s heralded debut full-length album Phantoms, which was released in 2011. The new album was recorded in Seattle, WA at Robert Lang Studios and produced by Grammy Award winning producer Adam Kasper (Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Cat Power).

“Distortion-heavy jams (and the whole marriage thing) invite comparisons to Sonic Youth, but Ume do more headbanging and wailing.” – Rolling Stone

“If Metric or Broken Social Scene got real and started adding some thick, metallish guitar riffs, they might start to sound something like “Black Stone,” the first track off of Ume’s forthcoming album” – Noisey

“This band is ready to break out in a whole new way… A little like fuzzy shoegaze, raw garage rock and irresistible pop all rolled into one fiery package” – Nylon

“Ume immediately won me over with their raucus bursts of guitar-driven art rock, with front woman Lauren Larson threatening to take the whole thing off the rails with the abuse of her guitar strings. Still, underneath this Ume possesses an air of intelligence and depth rare in a genre known primarily for its copious drug use. When it comes to art, psychedelia, and rock and roll, it doesn’t get much better.” – Village Voice

Ume to release new album Monuments on March 4th

Austin rock band Ume today announced that they will release their much-anticipated new album, Monuments, on March 4th via Dangerbird Records. Monuments is the follow-up to the trio’s heralded debut full-length album Phantoms, which was released in 2011. The new album was recorded in Seattle, WA at Robert Lang Studios and produced by Grammy Award winning producer Adam Kasper (Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Cat Power).

Preorder Monuments today exclusive on iTunes. Look for vinyl & CD preorder packages to launch shortly!

“We didn’t hold anything back with Monuments. I think Adam Kasper really helped us to capture in a sincere and sonically heavy way that freedom we feel live,” said the band’s guitarist and vocalist Lauren Larson. “For me, each song is a sort of commemoration of a different emotion or experience. One song might make you want to bang your head and the next make you want to hug someone you love. I think it’s these wildly different textures that make us a band and make us all human. That’s what we wanted to communicate — something honest and different through a rock record. We really can’t wait to get this one out.”

1. Black Stone
2. Embrace

Ume Signs with Dangerbird; New Album Coming in 2014

Austin rock band Ume today unveiled a surging new song entitled “Black Stone”, premiering today via Noisey/VICE. “Black Stone” will be featured on the band’s forthcoming sophomore album due out in early 2014 on Dangerbird Records.

“From the first time we saw Ume we were stopped dead in our tracks by their bold swagger and seemingly effortless upending of so many rock conventions,” said Dangerbird founder Peter Walker. “We are thrilled to help deliver this incredible band and their kick ass new album to the world in 2014.”

“We’re so excited to finally unleash new music,” said Ume’s Lauren Larson.  “It’s an honor for us to be a part of the Dangerbird family and we’re grateful for everyone who’s helped this new record become a reality.”  

The new album was recorded in Seattle, WA at Robert Lang Studios and produced by Grammy® Award winning producer Adam Kasper (Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Cat Power).
