Living Colour to perform Sept. 2 at Bottle & Cork
‘Cult of Personality’ band on tour with new album
By Michael Sprouse
Special to the Cape Gazette
Anyone who listened to popular music in the late 1980s will certainly be familiar with the legendary downtown New York City rock band Living Colour.
The band exploded out of CBGB (Country, Blue Grass and Blues, a club that was a forum for American punk and punk-influenced bands such as The Ramones, Misfits, Television, the Patti Smith Group) in the late 1980s and landed on MTV, the cover of Rolling Stone and stadium stages around the world with its Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum debut album “Vivid” and its hit single “Cult of Personality.”
Living Colour gave me, along with millions of others, what is perhaps my favorite song of the late 80’s. “The Cult of Personality“, from their tremendous breakthrough “tape” Vivid, was a hard-charging rock anthem that wanted to be as serious and thoughtful as much as it wanted to shred. Corey Glover, Vernon Reid and the rest are back, and still tearing up. Their new album, The Chair in the Doorway, comes out soon and the gang is hitting the road to make sure we all know about it (they’ll be hitting The Granada Theater on September 19th). Below are some LC goodies, including the single, “Behind the Sun”, enjoy.

(courtesy of Dave Hogerty) Living Colour introduces its fifth studio record ("Chair in the Doorway"), it's first in more than five years, August 8 (WIMBASH 2009), at Sully's Pub & Tiki Bar in Hartford, Connecticut. The band: Vernon Reid (guitar), Corey Glover (vocals), Will Calhoun (drums), and Doug Wimbish (bass) are starting rehearsing in NYC, preparing for a World Tour set to begin in September.
Living Colour will be the musical guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Monday, September 21, 2009 -- You better act like you know!
Will Calhoun is a hard rock drummer. He is also an esteemed graduate of the Berklee School of Music. He has recorded indigenous music, Moroccan music, he leads his own jazz combo, and he is also a photographer and an accomplished songwriter. In short, Will Calhoun is not your average, ordinary heavy rock drummer but you see in the long run this makes sense. Calhoun is the driving force behind the rock band Living Colour and Living Colour have never been your average, ordinary heavy rock group.
The Roots’ regularly jam-session at New York’s Highline Ballroom continued this past Monday. Living Colour opened the night’s festivities with the crowd-favorite “Cult Of Personality,” before offering three tracks from its forthcoming release The Chair In The Doorway: “Decadance,” “Behind the Sun” and “Bless Those.”
LIVING COLOUR will make a special appearance at the Wim>>Bash at Sullys Pub Hartford CT Saturday Aug 8th 2009.
A party for friends and family, Living Colour supports Hartford's Live Music Scene and is in town to rehearse for the up coming > The Chair In The Doorway > Tour starting August 10th at The Highline Ballroom in N.Y.C. supporting THE ROOTS.
