Umphrey’s McGee unveiled pro-shot video featuring a studio version of “Crucial Taunt” recorded at TELEFUNKEN’s factory in South Windsor, Connecticut this past winter. The performance is the latest in Telefunken’s Live From The Lab video series.

Brendan Bayliss handles lead vocals on the original which has been played live a total of 46 times. The take UM recorded at Telefunken’s factory was brought to Nashville for overdubs and is the initial UM tune mixed by Grammy-winning engineer Ryan Hewitt.
