Flying Colors (w/Mike Portnoy) have just premiered a new video for Bombs Away from their upcoming live release, Second Flight: Live at the Z7, which is out on 13th November via Mascot Label Group/Music Theories Recordings. Check it out below!
Keyboardist Neal Morse says:
“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.”
On only the eighth show of their 2014 fall tour, they took to the stage at Switzerland’s storied Z7 venue and captured on film captured a breathtaking live performance. 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: behind the front-of-house soundboard, or right in the front row.
In another first, an audio-only version of the concert is available in Headphone Surround, which recreates the front-row surround mix entirely in headphones. The headphone mix will be available in formats up to uncompressed 24 bit / 192 KHz from HD audio distributors, such as Pono. For the warmest sound and highest possible fidelity, every one of the show’s mixes was mastered to 2″ analogue tape, and digitised separately for each audio format, by mix/mastering engineer Rich Mouser (Transatlantic, Weezer).
