STS9, Umphrey's McGee get together for summer outing
Sound Tribe Sector 9, otherwise known as STS9, will take off on a co-headlining run with Umphrey's McGee after making stops at a handful of summer festivals.
STS9 will first make appearances at several multi-day events, beginning with the Summer Camp Music Festival May 24-26 in Chillicothe, IL, before catching up with Umphrey's McGee for an Aug. 15 kickoff performance in Louisville, KY.
The two bands, which will switch off headlining duties at each market, will travel through 16 major cities across the nation, wrapping up with two consecutive nights Sept. 6-7 in Morrison, CO.
The five-piece STS9 will unveil their yet-to-named 12th studio effort in September via their own label, 1320 Records. The fall release will mark the group's first since 2011's "When the Dust Settles."
Umphrey's McGee most recently dropped "Death by Stereo," the band's sixth studio album, in September 2011.
