FLYING COLORS (Ex-DREAM THEATER, Etc.) To Release First Album In Five Years In 2019
Flying Colors, the band featuring guitarist Steve Morse (Deep Purple), keyboardist Neal Morse (The Neal Morse Band, Transatlantic, Ex-Spock's Beard), bassist Dave Larue (Dixie Dregs), drummer Mike Portnoy (Sons Of Apollo, The Winery Dogs, Ex-Dream Theater) and vocalist Casey Mcpherson (Alpha Rev) released two records in 2012 and 2014 and then took a bit of break from doing new material.
According to Portnoy's Twitter, the band is just about to hit the studio to record 10 songs for release "late summer/early fall 2019 release if all goes well." The band is also planning on making a live comeback, which will presumably be recorded as a live record at some point given that they've already got two live records out.
On my way to Nashville for the week to begin my drum tracks for the new @FlyingColors album! We have 10 songs written and we are shooting/hoping for a late summer/early fall 2019 release if all goes well…(& yes, praying that the stars align for live shows too! 🙏) pic.twitter.com/JiGYlsiNJx
