The boys are back in town!

From the press release:

Living Colour (above l to r: Vernon Reid, Corey Glover, Will Calhoun, Doug Wimbish)  will release their first new studio
album in five years entitled The Chair In The Doorway on
September 15 via Megaforce Records.
Living Colour formed in NYC and still contains the original
members Vernon Reid, Corey Glover, Will Calhoun and (since 1993) Doug
Wimbish. 

 The
legendary downtown NYC rock band, who exploded out of CBGB's in the late
'80s and landed all over MTV, the cover of Rolling
Stone
and stadium stages around the world with their Grammy Award-winning,
multi-platinum debut album Vivid, are
back and "fierce" as ever. The band gathered at Sono Studios
outside of Prague in The Czech Republic during the fall of 2008 and spring of
2009 to write and record what would become The
Chair In The Doorway
. The results stretch from the modern soul anthem
"Behind The Sun" to the politically-charged, heavy rock of
"DecaDance” to the sacred steel blues of "Bless Those.” The artwork
for The Chair In The Doorway was
compiled from thousands of contest entries by fans from around the world.

 "We feel like this is the best record we've made
yet and we couldn't be more excited to be releasing it with the legendary
Megaforce Records," says guitarist Vernon Reid.  "Some of
our favorite bands were or are Megaforce artists, Metallica, Bad Brains,
Anthrax, Black Crowes, so it's an honor to be part of a label with a great
legacy." 

 Living Colour will announce plans for a world tour
shortly. With dates set to begin in September, it will include their first
North American tour in four years along with performances in South America,
Europe, Australia and Asia.

 Having helped to pave the way for a number of
contemporary African-American artists to follow in their wake, ranging from
Rage Against The Machine to Lenny Kravitz to Ben Harper, with a
multi-dimensional sound that drew equally from Jimi Hendrix, Bad Brains,
Talking Heads and Ornette Coleman, the success of Living Colour broke down the
color barriers in rock music. Guitarist and founding member Vernon Reid
also founded the Black Rock Coalition to use his influence to further this
cause.

 Discovered by Mick Jagger who produced their first
demo and later offered them an opening slot with The Rolling Stones, Living Colour
would go on to create a repertoire that includes a multitude of classic songs,
including "Cult Of Personality," "Elvis Is Dead,"
"Open Letter To A Landlord," "Glamour Boys" and "Love
Rears Its Ugly Head." With The Chair
In The Doorway
, the fifth album of their storied career, Living Colour
expands the scope of their timeless body of work and, in the process, proves
vital as ever.
