    UME, one of our fave bands that we need you to check out, will hit the road on a second tour this summer, the previously announced co-headline tour with The Life and Times in June and the newly revealed tour with Helmet and The Toadies.

    Backstory: 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 explore the artier, heavier side of indie rock, post-punk, and alternative rock.

    With Phantoms, their full-length album released last August by Modern Outsider Records, Ume harnessed their carefully crafted chaos into ten tracks, capturing the unhinged passion and raw catharsis of their live shows while pushing their ever-evolving sound to impressive new heights. Like a bridge between Black Sabbath and Bat For Lashes, the LP is heavy, anthemic, beautiful and mesmerizing.
