Umphrey’s McGee will return to the road this summer for a summer tour that will include multiple local stops in New England. The Chicago-based jam band will team up with Rebelution for shows at the South Shore Music Circus in Cohasset on Thursday, July 29 and at the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis on Friday, July 30. Tickets for each of the shows are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $34.25.

After their shows in Massachusetts, both Umphrey’s McGee and Rebelution will play sets at the Gathering of the Vibes festival in Bridgeport, Connecticut on Saturday, July 31 before heading north for another show together at New Hampshire’s Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom on Sunday, August 1.

Umphrey’s McGee continue to tour in support of their 2009 release, Mantis. Best know for their live performances, the road warriors recently returned to their hometown of Chicago to host their first annual “UMBowl” concert. The show was segmented into four quarters with fans determining the entire set list via real time text messaging and pre-show balloting. Fans can now download MP3s of the entire show on the band’s official website.

The band also recently released their song “1348” on the Rock Band Network, the first of several songs the band hopes to offer fans the ability to download and play on the popular video game.
