"Second Flight: Live At The Z7”, from the virtuoso prog/pop/rock band FLYING COLORS, showcases a new level of musical prowess from the group, captures the candid energy of a new band, and lets fans experience them in innovative ways. It reflects the many hues and colors of the band members’ (Steve Morse, Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy, Dave LaRue & Casey McPherson) individual— and collective—unique creative expression. It’s FLYING COLORS at their very best, and a new milestone in the band’s soaring adventure.
In 2014, on the 8th show of their fall tour, FLYING COLORS took to the stage at Switzerland’s storied Z7 venue, and on film, captured a breathtaking live performance. With their critically acclaimed sophomore album Second Nature out for only a week, the concert recorded an exceptional rarity: band and audience, together, discovering an album for the first time.
FLYING COLORS also explored technological innovation with the album, with unique ways for fans to experience it. Viewers can listen in 5.1-surround from the two best seats in the house: at the soundboard, or in the front row. All the show’s audio was processed with a new engineering system, developed specifically for live at the Z7, which creates stunning detail and separation.
The vinyl release comes with a code for a complimentary MP3 download of the album. (The first 1,000 orders get a signed insert! [http://smarturl.it/FlyingColorsMLG]) "Second Flight: Live At The Z7” will be released worldwide on November 13, 2015.

Todays tune "Bombs Away" is the first taste taken from the upcoming live album "Second Flight: Live At The Z7”.
"Bombs Away: I love the guitar work in this one. Steve really nails it. This also has a really cool proggy string melody section that I can never get out of my head...in a good way. The only other thing I have to say about this song can be summed up in one word: CHEESEWHIZ.” — Neal Morse
