MIKE PORTNOY Talks FLYING COLORS In New Video Interview Drummer MIKE PORTNOY (ADRENALINE MOB, FLYING COLORS, ex-DREAM THEATER) spoke with Morow back in September on the Flying Colors European tour. Check out the video interview below: The formation of 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 recordings 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. "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." "It was quite an experience,” recalls Dave LaRue. “The band moved at a fast pace, ideas flying around the room at all times. Sections of tunes were arranged, and then re-arranged. Ideas were tried every which way until we made them work, or, in some cases, discarded them altogether. Just keeping track of everything was a challenge!" The album is filled with trial and triumph. It's been an inspiring challenge melding folk, prog, pop, and metal all into one big recording." Check out "making of" footage for Flying Colors' debut album below: Flying Colors performed at the Best Buy Theater in New York City on September 6th. During the set they performed a cover of Dream Theater's 'Repentance', taken from the band's Systematic Chaos album. Fan-filmed video is available below:
