CATCH CASEY LIVE for a series of intimate solo acoustic shows in Europe! He'll be singing songs from Flying Colors and Alpha Rev. And you can join in! Just…you know…not on the stage. AND you can catch him for a one-time show fronting the prog band, "The Sea Within", at Night of the Prog (which sounds like a great festival, but probably the worst Adam Sandler movie of all time). They'll be debuting their new album! With Casey!

Howdy! Love is in the air and…some joke about it being what we’re waiting for. At Flying Colors, we’ve got Valentine’s Day covered with these award-awaiting jewellery sets. (That’s “jewellery”, not “third album”.) They’re handmade from silver and three guitar strings played by Steve. And, of course, love. And plastic—beautiful 100% pure plastic—there’s guitar picks involved. (Order by this Sunday to ensure delivery by V-Day.) Where can these lit sets be found? http://www.calliopia.org Meanwhile, Steve Morse, Dave LaRue, and even Bill Evans will be at NAMM, so come to say hi, and don’t forget to ask Dave about his sock puppet collection. Mike Portnoy will be playing there this Thursday with Metal Allegiance at the House of Blues. We’ll have a photo wrap-up, and possibly a poorly-produced sock-puppet drama, after NAMM!
Zombies?! Check out the new video from our prog metal friends, Galactic Cowboys! https://goo.gl/89KHHk
Show your colors! It's Holiday Season at Flying Colors, with tons of new stuff to fashionably strut. Everything now ships directly from North America or Europe. Jewelry (with strings Steve played) is waaay discounted. Heck, gift-wrapping is available. Plus, unlike other prog bands, our quality merch does not ship with angry ferrets (looking at you, Steven Wilson). It's all progalicious, and right here: https://goo.gl/vyXt8c
WHAT MADNESS IS THIS? 🙈🙉🙊 Flying Colors bracelets made from Steve’s own guitar strings that he played in concert? 🎸 Is the third album in jewellery form?! 📿 Grab cool official FC stuff here, and help us buy that blimp! 🚀 : http://bit.ly/2fzSkGs (Why is there no blimp emoji? There's THREE for monkey faces, for crying out loud! 💦)
Happy Friday! 🎉 Check out the coverage 📢, and re-enjoy our trailer 🎬 for True Colors, featuring Casey's Hat 🧢, at Prog magazine 📰: http://teamrock.com/news/2017-10-27/flying-colors-release-raw-version-of-debut-album
Live and in digital! But no Blu-Ray or DVD player? So 'Live in Europe' will soon be available as digital download, free from copy-protection or DRM. Copy it to your laptop, iPad, or Speak n' Spell. And as a bonus, the video has been digitally remastered by our Lucasfilm friends, who created the amazing visuals for 'Live at the Z7'.
It's time to open the archives! We've got TONS of unseen video and photos! 🎥📸 We're in Neal's studio. 🏠 It's the FIRST day, of the first Flying Colors album. 🎶 Most us have never even met. Steve is writing and recording a part for "Kayla." 🎸 (Please note he is not playing through the Orange amp; that's Neal's. Steve plays ENGL. Steve also disregards the laws of physics 🚀 when performing, at his whimsy.)
Hey, what's that NOT on your coffee table? A giant book about PROG! Our friend Roie Avin has unleashed "Essential Prog Rock Albums 1990-2016", with 300 pages of modern prog wonder. Featuring our favorite prog people: us! Check out new interviews with Mr. Mike Portnoy, Casey, Neal and Bill. There's probably other people, but…really, who's "Steven Wilson"? This conversation piece is sure to have your friends and family asking, "What's prog?" And, "Who's that?" And, "Oh look, it's the people who make those awful songs." Note: Books are made of paper and glue, and are not compatible with iPhone or Microsoft anything. Order here! http://progreport.com/essential-modern-prog-rock-albums/ Hey Roie, what are these album covers that aren't ours?
