I always wondered whatever happened to the rock group Living Colour.
I was introduced to their music while watching The Arsenio Hall Show years ago. I became a huge fan. I just read that they’re working on a new cd, The Chair in the Doorway, scheduled for release in September.

NEW YORK (Billboard) – The cult of personality will be revived this fall, when purveyors of hard funk-rock Living Color return with “The Chair in the Doorway” — the band’s first set of new material in nearly six years.
Due September 15 on Megaforce Records, the 11-song set was recorded in numerous locations over the last few years, with a majority of the sessions taking place at Sono Studios outside Prague in the Czech Republic.
According to lead singer Corey Glover, most of the material came to fruition after the band was asked to re-record “Cult of Personality” for “Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.” From there, the group fleshed out songs when on tour and while Glover had time off from touring duties as Judas in “Jesus Christ Superstar.”
When Vivid was released I bought the cassette (I didn’t own a cd player at that time). I wore it out. I eventually bought the cd and wore that out too.
Vivid is one of my all time favorite cds.
