Flying Colors Stream 'Second Nature'

Flying Colors are streaming their sophomore album, Second Nature, over at Guitar World.

The Progressive Rock "supergroup" is comprised of Mike Portnoy (Winery Dogs, ex-Dream Theater, Avenged Sevenfold, Adrenaline Mob), Steve Morse (Deep Purple, Dixie Dregs), Neal Morse (Spock's Beard, Transatlantic), Dave LaRue (Steve Vai, Joe Satriani), and Australian pop singer/songwriter Casey McPherson.

??Mike Portnoy told Guitar World that the songwriting was more organic this time around, stemming from the band's decision to self-produce the album: "Direction was never even discussed.

We just did what we do. I think perhaps not having a producer to 'trim the fat' possibly led to the songs breathing and expanding a bit more." ??

To coincide with Second Nature's release, Flying Colors have announced three North American tour dates on top of their European mini-tour. ??
