Umbilicus (Cannibal Corpse, Deicide) release eponymous new single


Official press release: 

70s rock outfit Umbilicus has released their fourth and final single, "Umbilicus", from their upcoming album Path Of 1000 Suns, which is due September 30th via Listenable Insanity Records.  The new single showcases the band's classic hard rock tendencies, as well as vocalist Brian Stephenson's impressive vocal range.


Guitarist Taylor Nordberg shared:

"The story behind "Umbilicus" is pretty hilarious.  When Paul, Vern, and I were jamming and writing at the Cannibal spot, we noticed this tiny little plant growing from the ceiling. Weeks went by and it got longer and longer and eventually it reached the floor.  So we wrote a new tune at the time and it was dubbed Umbilicus, named after the plant, also because I had read the word when I was reading "It" by Stephen King and it may have been in one of the Alien movies as well...  It eventually became the band name, too! You can hear a lyric in there about "..from a ceiling in Florida".  It's a pretty fun song, musically and lyrically."
