Want to have your photography featured as part of the album artwork–maybe even on the cover–of the next Living Colour album?  Here's your chance. 

While the band is pulling together music for their next album, "The Chair In The Doorway," they're asking fans, non-fans, photographers of all levels and anyone so inclined to send in an interpretation of the title.  First, join the Flickr group where you can get more details.  Vernon writes:

"I did a press junket for CollideØscope with Corey and whenever something was going wrong Corey would always say "the chair in the doorway". It was just one of these things he would say and I looked at him and said 'you know that thing you always say, that's going to be the title of our next album.' I don't know what that means but that's it. What I like about "The Chair In The Doorway" is that it is a concrete image and a very real thing but……Why is there a chair in the doorway? What does it mean? It's completely abstract, while being a contract, a physical manifestation of what it is."

All entries must be in by submitted/posted to the group by February 28, 2009.  Finalists will be appropriately notified after they've produced proof that the shot they're submitting is actually theirs.

Good luck!
