  Living Colour

Living  Colour is an American rock band from New York  City, formed in 1984.  Led by guitarist Vernon Reid, the bands lineup  solidified in the  mid-80's w/ Corey Glover (vocals), Will Calhoun  (drums) and Muzz  Skillings (bass). Stylistically, the band's music is a  creative fusion  influenced by free jazz, funk, hard rock and heavy  metal. Their lyrics  range from the personal to the political, in some of  the latter cases  attacking Eurocentrism and racism in America. The band’s debut album,  “Vivid,” was released in 1988 on Epic Records.  The album reached #6 on  the Billboard 200 Albums chart and was later  certified double platinum  by the RIAA. It featured “Cult of  Personality,” a #13 hit on the  Billboard 200 Singles chart as well as  the Top 40 hit, “Glamour Boys.”  “Cult of Personality” went on to earn  the band their first Grammy Award  for Best Hard Rock Performance. In 1990 the band's second full-length  album, “Time's Up,” was released  and reached #13 on the Billboard 200  while certifying gold. It won a  Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Album  and featured guest appearances by  Queen Latifah, Little Richard, Doug  E. Fresh, and Maceo Parker. Living Colour released the 6-song EP,  "Biscuits" which coincided with the inaugural Lollapalooza tour in the  summer of 1991.Skillings left the band in the summer of 1992, replaced  by session veteran and Sugarhill Records bass player Doug  Wimbish.“Stain,” their third LP, was released in 1993 by Epic. Reaching  #26 on  the Billboard 200, the album had a much heavier and aggressive  sound,  containing elements of thrash metal and industrial music while  receiving  a Grammy nomination for 'Leave It Alone'.After a split in  1995, Living Colour returned in December 2000 and began  recording  “Collideøscope”. Released in 2003, the album featured  aggressive  lyrics, with many of the songs about the September 11  attacks. It also  contained cover versions of AC/DC's “Back in Black” and  The Beatles'  “Tomorrow Never Knows.” Their first release on Megaforce Records, “The  Chair in the Doorway,”  was issued in 2009 and reached #159 on the  Billboard 200 charged by the  single 'Behind The Sun'In 2013, the band  celebrated the 25th anniversary of 'Vivid' w/ a world  tour crossing  North and South Americas, Europe, and Japan, including the  Soundwave  festival in Australia.The root of Living Colour's next album, came from a  performance of  Robert Johnson's "Preachin' Blues" at the 100th  Anniversary Birthday  celebration at the legendary Apollo in New York  City. Released on September 8, 2017, ‘Shade’ is the sound of a band  coming to  terms with its shadows and light,” says founder Vernon Reid.  “From the  blue pulpit of Robert Johnson to the mean red streets of  Brooklyn...  ‘Shade’ is the next chapter of a unique American journey.”
