More than a year ago, we first reported on the fact that Dream Theater expat Mike Portnoy was working with Deep Purple guitarist Steve Morse and multi-instrumentalist Neal Morse (known for his work with Spock’s Beard).
Now, Mascot Label Group has revealed that on March 27, they will release the debut from Flying Colors on their Music Theories Label.
The formation of the ensemble began with a simple idea: virtuoso musicians and a pop singer joining together to make new-fashioned music the old fashioned way.
“Refreshing, classic, old and new, the recordings are saturated with the many styles, tones and hues of the players who in becoming a band have delivered a unique fusion of vintage craftsmanship and contemporary music,” a press release reads.
The band also boasts bassist Dave LaRue of Dixie Dregs, and Alpha Rev vocalist Casey McPherson.
Touring plans for Flying Colors will be announced in the coming months.
