Flying Colors reveal their Second Nature


Flying Colors have confirmed the release of their album Second Nature on September 29 via Music Theories/Mascot Label Group.

The prog supergroup – featuring Mike Portnoy, Neal Morse, Steve Morse, David LaRue and Casey McPherson – will play London’s Islington Assembly Hall on October 13 to support the launch.

Work on the nine-track album took almost 18 months while the various members found time in their schedules to write, refine and record their parts. They also self-produced the title.

Transatlantic and Winery Dogs drummer Portnoy says: “Direction wasn’t even discussed; we just did what we did. I think perhaps noe having a producer to ‘trim the fat’ led to the songs breathing and expanding a bit more.”

Deep Purple Guitarist Steve Morse adds: “This is an album full of many layers. The more you listen, the more you can hear.”
