Umbilicus, the hard rock supergroup featuring drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz (Cannibal Corpse), guitarist Taylor Nordberg (Deicide, Inhuman Condition), bassist Vernon Blake (Anarchus) and vocalist Brian Stephenson (Fore, Old James), is now streaming their debut single "Hello Future." It's way less blood and gore, and way more Grand Funk Railroad and Boston… and it's pretty great.
"Hello Future! Here we are, we did it!" said Stephenson. "It's time for the world to hear what we've been putting our time and efforts into. We could not be more stoked for this first single and the album! Real down and dirty, simple, straight forward, in-your-face rock n roll for the people. It's been a labour of love on all counts and a real trip from conception to birth. Here it is kicking and screaming in all its glory!
"Me and my brothers Taylor, Paul, and Vern's hearts could not be filled with more joy for you all to experience this with us. We are Umbilicus and we play Rock N; Roll. Dig it! Much love and peace to you all past, present, and future!"
"Hello Future" is available here on Bandcamp. Umbilicus will release their new record Path To 1,000 Suns later this year. The album was recorded in 2021 at Smoke & Mirrors Productions, and mixed and mastered by Nordberg in 2022.
