Colourmusic Ready Debut LP

Colourmusic are not all British, contrary to the English spelling of their name. The band, who has a love for thecolor wheel burnt in to our minds in elementary school art classes (Roy G. Biv is prominently displayed as their MySpace background), actually call the great state of Oklahoma home. The British touch comes from member Nick Turner, originally from England, who formed the group with Ryan Hendrix upon meeting at Oklahoma State University a decade ago.

The band recently finished up supporting British Sea Power on their US tour, and are now ready to unleash their debut album upon the world. Titled
f, monday, orange, february venus, lunatic, 1 or 13 (phew!) the album will be available digitally and on vinyl first on August 19th, while the CD will be available September 9th, all through Great Society. And, what better way to get your Friday started by checking out the first song from the record, titled "Put In A Little Gas".
