“Black Stone” video premieres today on VEVO!
Hair-swinging, guitar-shredding Austin trio Ume have inked a deal with Dangerbird Records (Minus the Bear, Silversun Pickups) for their sophomore LP, Monuments, which is due out on March 4 (pre-order). The record was produced by Adam Kasper, who was behind the boards for Queens of the Stone Age’s Songs for the Deaf, and with the QOTSA-style riffage Ume’s new single “Chase It Down” opens with, he proves to be a perfect match for the band. That track makes its premiere in this post, and you can stream it, with the album artwork and tracklist, below.
