Two-time Grammy-winning rock band LIVING COLOUR is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a tour in support of long-awaited new album, "Shade", and a tour set to kick off September 18 at The Opera House in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The group — vocalist Corey Glover, guitarist Vernon Reid, bassist Doug Wimbish and drummer Will Calhoun — is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on "Shade" with producer Ron Saint Germain (U2, SONIC YOUTH, BAD BRAINS). Germain, who's mixing the record, was the engineer on LIVING COLOUR's Grammy-winning/multi-platinum-selling debut, "Vivid", which was released in 1988 and shot to No. 6 on The Billboard 200.
Due in the fall, "Shade" follows 2009's "The Chair In The Doorway" and is LIVING COLOUR's sixth studio album.
"'Shade' is the sound of a band coming to terms with its shadows and light," says Reid. "From the blue pulpit of Robert Johnson to the mean red streets of Brooklyn to the golden lure of Hollywood, 'Shade' is the next chapter of a unique American journey."
