Flying Colors: September 2012 European Tour
Flying Colors showcases Mike Portnoy (drums, vocals), Dave LaRue
(bass), Neal Morse (keyboards, vocals), Casey McPherson (lead
vocals, guitar), and Steve Morse (lead guitar). "The album has bits
and pieces of what you'd expect from each of us," says Portnoy.
"The sum of all its parts led to brand new, unchartered territory
for everyone involved."
Flying Colors 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 songs 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.
"It was quite an experience making the album," recalls Dave
LaRue. "It's been an inspiring challenge melding folk, prog, pop
and metal into one big recording."
