UME “BLACK STONE” AVAILABLE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD AT UMEMUSIC.COM!December 12, 2013 DarlingDork No comments
NEW ALBUM DUE OUT IN EARLY 2014!
LOS ANGELES, CA – DECEMBER 12, 2013 – “Black Stone”, the surging new single from Austin rock band Ume is currently available for free download via the band’s website www.umemusic.com. The track was premiered by Noisey, who said, “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’.” To download “Black Stone” for free, click HERE. “Black Stone” will be featured on the band’s forthcoming sophomore album due out in early 2014 on Dangerbird Records. The album was produced by Grammy® Award winning producer Adam Kasper (Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Cat Power).
Hailing from Austin, Texas, Ume is Lauren Larson (Vocals, Guitar), Eric Larson (Bass), and Rachel Fuhrer (Drums). The trio’s music is one of beautiful juxtapositions: the loud and soft, the aggressive and eerie, buoyant melodies bursting through wall-of-noise dissonance. Ume explores the artier, heavier side of indie rock, post-punk, and alternative rock and have already garnered the attention of Nylon, who declared, “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,” while Village Voice proclaimed “Ume immediately won me over with their raucous 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.” Rolling Stone said “Distortion-heavy jams (and the whole marriage thing) invite comparisons to Sonic Youth, but Ume do more headbanging and wailing.”
Ume have won over audiences across the country as a result of their momentous live show and toured over 150 dates in support of their prior release. They’ve supported …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Warpaint, The Smashing Pumpkins, Franz Ferdinand, Helmet, and Cursive, and were personally invited to open for Jane’s Addiction at a Lollapalooza afterparty by Perry Ferrell last year. The band also appeared on the 2012 Season Premiere of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, sharing their insight on local Austin food during Bourdain’s visit to SXSW.
On Friday, December 13th Ume will perform in their hometown of Austin, TX for the101X Indie Workforce Xmas with Cage The Elephant and J Roddy Walston & The Business.
Stay tuned for more information on the forthcoming release at the top of the New Year.
