Supergroup FLYING COLORS released yesterday, 18th September, their brand new live album, ‘Third Stage: Live in London’, via Music Theories Recordings – home to Ayreon, Jordan Rudess, Von Hertzen Brothers, Michael Romeo, Jason Becker, Paul Gilbert and Spock’s Beard.
Watch the new video for ‘You Are Not Alone’ here:
Singer Casey McPherson about the track:
“The lyrics from this song originated from my experience in Houston when hurricane Harvey hit. Being one of the first responders there, pulling people out of the water, it allowed me to see the depth and connection we have as humans. When it all falls apart, when our race, class, and political stance doesn’t matter anymore, we are just people, one hand reaching out to the other.”
When you combine the calibre of supergroup musicians – guitarist Steve Morse (Deep Purple, Dixie Dregs, ex-Kansas), drummer Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, ex-Dream Theater, Transatlantic), keyboardist/vocalist Neal Morse (Transatlantic, ex Spock’s Beard, and a prolific solo artist in his own right), bassist Dave LaRue (Dixie Dregs, ex-Joe Satriani), and powerhouse vocalist and songwriter Casey McPherson (Alpha Rev, The Sea Within) – the results are going to be lightning in a bottle.
They had only played 9 exclusive shows on the tour, culminating at the sold-out show in London, which saw Portnoy stand up mid-set and quip, “Welcome to the rarest of all sightings, rarer than a UFO sighting, rarer than a sasquatch sighting. A Flying Colors sighting, here on stage in London. This is a very sad night for us because it is the last night of the tour and we don’t get to play together enough, so we’re going to savour every moment tonight and enjoy each and every moment here on stage.”
