New Living Colour Coming

from Blabbermouth

LIVING COLOUR will release its first new studio album in five years, entitled “The Chair In The Doorway”, on September 15 via Megaforce Records. The legendary downtown New York City rock band, who exploded out of CBGB in the late ’80s, landing all over MTV, the cover ofRolling Stone and stadium stages around the world with its Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum debut album “Vivid”, is back and as “fierce” as ever.

Original members Vernon ReidCorey GloverWill Calhoun and (since 1993) Doug Wimbish gathered at Sono Studios outside of Prague in the Czech Republic during the fall of 2008 and spring of 2009 to write and record what would become “The Chair In The Doorway”. The results stretch from the modern soul anthem “Behind The Sun” to the politically-charged, heavy rock of “DecaDance” to the sacred steel blues of “Bless Those”. The artwork for “The Chair In The Doorway” was compiled from thousands of contest entries by fans from around the world.

“We feel like this is the best record we’ve made yet and we couldn’t be more excited to be releasing it with the legendary Megaforce Records,” says guitarist Vernon Reid. “Some of our favorite bands were or areMegaforce artists — METALLICABAD BRAINSANTHRAXBLACK CROWES — so it’s an honor to be part of a label with a great legacy.”
