Living Colour release Stain

Stain is the third album by Living Colour.

It was released on March 2, 1993, by Epic Records. It is the first album to feature bassist Doug Wimbish. Stain features a much heavier and aggressive Living Colour, containing elements of thrash metal and industrial music. It reached #26 on the Billboard 200; however, the band would split up on January 1995 following a tour with Bad Brains. One of their last shows, before reuniting years later, would be a performance at CBGB's.

The cover art shows a woman wearing a brank. As of 2011, the album is out of print and problems with the rights ownership make a reissue unlikely. However, it is available as an MP3 download.
