Living Colour have announced the release of their latest studio album, 'Shade,' via Megaforce Records!
Produced by Andre Betts, it's the legendary New York City rock band's first new record in eight years.
The initial spark for 'Shade' came via the mojo spirit of blues' pioneer Robert Johnson who possessed Living Colour's soul during a performance at Harlem's famed Apollo Theatre. Roaring through an electrically charged cover of Johnson's classic "Preachin' Blues," Living Colour moved both the audience and themselves.
"That was really the beginning of us thinking of the direction we want to take for our next project," says Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid. "Hearing that blend of blues and metal was really what got the wheels turning."
'Shade,' their first album since the critically acclaimed 'The Chair in the Doorway' in 2009, is Living Colour at the height of their creative powers, still experimenting as though they were upstarts instead of seasoned veterans. While the blues served as the foundation for the collection, one shouldn't expect to hear the "down-home" style that was once the soundtrack of sharecroppers and southern juke joints before the music rode the rails north during the Great Migration. Living Colour's blues incorporate a myriad of influences, while speaking to the politically-charged climate of the times.
