Umphrey’s McGee bassist Ryan Stasik has confirmed that his new project Doom Flamingo is here to stay.

The band quietly announced their first gig in February, as a late-night set following UM’s May 31 show in Mount Pleasant, SC, and Stasik’s recent chatter on social media points to a longterm commitment.

The Doom Flamingo lineup includes Stasik, saxophonist Mike Quinn, keyboardist Ross Bogan, drummer Stuart White, guitarist Thomas Kenney and vocalist Kanika Moore. The band describes themselves as “synthwave” and even shared a Spotify playlist to give fans an idea of what they’re going for.

The mystery remains but in Stasik’s words, on May 31 “Doom Flamingo rises.”
