Flying Colors premiere Mask Machine

Flying Colors have premiered the video for Mask Machine, the lead track from upcoming album Second Nature.

The follow-up to the prog supergroup’s self-titled 2012 debut is set for launch on October 6.

The band was formed with the aim of seeing what would happen when Mike Portnoy and Neal Morse of Transatlantic joined forces with Deep Purple’s Steve Morse and Dave LaRue of Dixie Dregs, then added the talents of singer Casey McPherson to the mix.

Drummer Portnoy says: “The first album was very much a blind date. This time there was an existing chemistry – we not only had the prior experiences of making the debut album, but also the 2012 tour as well. Direction was never discussed; we just did what we do.”

Flying Colors play their only UK show this year at the Islington Assembly Hall in London on October 13.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
