Flying Colors stream Second Nature in full

Flying Colors have streamed their second album, Second Nature, in full with TeamRock ahead of its release next month.

The nine-track record follows the band’s 2012 self-titled debut, and appears via Music Theories/Mascot Label Group on October 6. And it sees Mike Portnoy, Neal Morse, Steve Morse, David LaRue and Casey McPherson following their own muse.

Transatlantic and Winery Dogs drummer Portnoy recently said: “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 added: “This is an album full of many layers. The more you listen, the more you can hear.”

Second Nature is available for pre-order now in a variety of formats. Flying Colors play their only UK show this year at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on October 13 – and TeamRock is offering a pair of meet-and-greet tickets to the show.

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.
