Flying Colors will be releasing their brand new album ‘Third Degree’ on 4th October via Music Theories Recordings, a division of Mascot Label Group.
The latest video released is the album opener ‘The Loss Inside‘. Speaking about the track, Singer Casey McPherson explains “We all go through loss, and the grieving process often comes in waves, I love how musically and lyrically this song represents that process for me.”
The first sessions for ‘Third Degree‘ took place at Steve Morse’s studio in Florida in December 2016, wherein seven songs were written. From there, the band members had to scatter back to their other personal and professional obligations, eventually reconvening two full years later in December 2018.
The future of Flying Colors looks bright as Portnoy adds. “Our mission statement when we came together is still the same now,” he affirms. “It’s the same five guys with extremely different musical personalities and backgrounds coming together into a giant melting pot where it all comes out on the other end with music that’s accessible, melodic, deep, and colorful. That’s always been the goal of this band, and so far, I think we’re three for three.”
With ‘Third Degree‘, Flying Colors continue to fire on all cylinders — and, in the process, they also handily prove the third time’s an unquestionable sonic charm.
