Flying Colors – Second Nature

Flying Colors — one of Steve Morse’s other bands — will release their sophomore studio album called Second Nature on September 29 in Europe and 30th in the rest of the world via Mascot Label Group / Music Theories Recordings. The album will come in several editions:

  • CD + t-shirt + DVD
  • 2LP + t-shirt + DVD
  • CD + DVD

The t-shirt is also available separately. There is no word on the contents of the DVD, apart from it will be a “limited edition”, and presumably later pressings will come without it. The 2LP pack will include MP3 download code (and we hope it won’t be messed up like the recent Made in Japan release).

All editions can be preordered through the label and these orders are promised to come with a free bonus poster.

  1. Open Up Your Eyes

Artwork designed by Hugh Syme, who was responsible for art design on most Rush albums, Whitesnake ’87 and Slip of the Tongue, Aerosmith Get a Grip, Coverdale/Page, and many, many others.

In October the band will embark on a short tour to promote the album — 3 shows in the ‘burbs of LA, Chicago, and Philadelphia, followed by 7 dates in 7 European countries. Full details in our calendar.

And by the way, slightly belated happy birthday, Steve!

    Good news!

    The artwork looks like a CD-Cover from Dream Theater.

    Hope the music will keep the high standard of the debut.

    Have a nice day!

    Thankfully not hard rock. Of course they’re great when Neal Morse is a member:-)

    Almost didn’t recognise Steve (sleeveless) Morse in that shirt.! Only other time he wore a shirt with sleeves was at the 1999 Concerto show and i thought he looked great! Ritchie wears black, Steve no sleeves. Seriously though, i liked the first FC album and hope this one is just as good or better!

    Looking forward very much.
    Great stuff in the first album. Of course it isn’t hard rock. It’s simply good music!

    I also loved Chickenfoot, only a pity they stopped too early… hope it won’t happen to FC.
