Heavy instrumental rock-fusion onslaught TAUK will return to the road this winter to open a large string of shows for Umphrey’s McGee. The two bands will also collaborate on several special after parties under the name TAUKing McGee which will feature all four members of TAUK and a rotating cast of two members of Umphrey’s McGee. Despite the heavy schedule, TAUK will also perform their own headline shows which have been announced today.TAUK has created a unique musical identity that is quickly separating them from the pack. Featuring Matt Jalbert (guitar), Charlie Dolan (bass), Alric “A.C.” Carter (keyboard-organ), and Isaac Teel (drums), the band seamlessly brings together a mélange of genres as diverse as gritty funk, fusion, hip hop, progressive rock, ambient, classic rock, and jazz.

This distinct musical footprint coupled with tireless touring have built a dedicated and loyal fanbase for TAUK, and inspired the September release of the band’s first live album HEADROOM – a jaw-dropping testament to the young group’s already masterful live show. Mixed by five time Grammy winning producer/mixer/engineer Robert Carranza (The Mars Volta, Ozomatli, Jack Johnson, Taj Mahal) the live album features 16 hard-hitting, technically inspired instrumental tracks including a jam-rendition of Nirvana’s classic “In Bloom” as well as a cover of “Battle Without Honor Or Humanity” written by Tomoyasu Hotei and featuring special guests The Shady Horns.

At present, TAUK is in the studio with Carranza at work on their next full length album. The band will be taking a break from the studio to appear at Papadosio’s Earth Night celebration in Atlanta on December 19th and again in January to ride the high seas on Jam Cruise. Recording is slated to be wrapped up when the band leaves for Umphrey’s McGee tour. More dates will be announced soon.
