Supergroup Flying Colors Releases Second Album

Flying Colors: Second NatureWow.

Flying Colors kicks into the second song of its second album, Second Nature, with a big ol’ blast of bass, courtesy of Dave LaRue. Just check out “Mask Machine” in the video we featured yesterday.

Flying Colors is the creation of former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, LaRue and guitarist Steve Morse (both known for their work in the Dixie Dregs), singer Casey McPherson (Alpha Rev), and singer/keyboardist Neal Morse (ex-Transatlantic and Spock’s Beard).

The supergroup’s second studio outing includes plenty of epic work, including “Open Up Your Eyes” and the multi-part “Cosmic Symphony.”

The music, LaRue said, was “tons of fun to play, and the songwriting is great. Collaborating with these guys teaches me a lot and forces me out of my comfort zone.”

Here’s a taste of the entire record:
