Living Colour Plans Fifth Studio Album This Fall

Billboard.com reports that Living Colour 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 eleven song set was recorded in numerous locations over the last few years, with a majority of the sessions taking place at Sono Studios outside of Prague in the Czech Republic.

According to lead singer Corey Glover, most of the material started coming 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." "We recorded everywhere. We even recorded during shows - ideas that came up during shows turned into songs," Glover tells Billboard.com. "A lot of that turned onto [bassist] Doug [Wimbish]. Doug made up a lot of grooves; we took a lot of grooves we had from soundchecks and gigs - and he sort of codified and made a library of that stuff."

Here's the tracklisting for "The Chair In The Doorway":

Burned Bridges
The Chair
DecaDance
Young Man
Method
Behind The Sun
Bless Those
Hard Times
Taught Me
Out Of Mind
Not Tomorrow

They haven´t failed yet, though on the otherhand, they haven´t released an all-the-way great album yet either. In any case Id be great to have Living Colour around permanently instead of being one of the once every 5-6years bands
