We’re so excited to be back and to announce our new album ‘Other Nature’ will be released 07/20/18 on Modern Outsider Records! We’ve put together some exclusive and personalized pre-orders for you! The transparent green vinyl record (yes!), CD, and poster will be signed by the band and every pre-order includes a personalized written thank you note on a photograph from me (Lauren).
This new record was recorded with Grammy-winning producer/engineer Stuart Sikes (Cat Power, Loretta Lynn, Modest Mouse) over the course of two weeks in our hometown of Austin, TX. I went into the studio with 10 demos written by myself while my new baby slept. Eric and I welcomed our daughter into the world in 2015. After she was born, I started writing and playing guitar every spare 15 minutes I could find.
But I didn’t write these songs as an Ume record, nor as a solo project. I wrote them because I had to. I didn’t even know if the band would be able to continue, nor if we had the support of a label. But I knew I needed to keep making music and to recover and accept myself and these songs were part of that journey. So I stopped waiting for permission and said I’ve got to make this record happen.
With the incredible support and talent of Eric Larson on bass and Aaron Perez on drums, Don Cento on synth (he now plays 2nd guitar live with us! – I wrote more guitars on this record than any we’ve done in the past), Domino as my tech, and Stuart Sikes at the board, these songs became so much more than I ever imagined.
We can’t wait to share them with you!
Thank you for being here with us! We love y’all!
