Prog-rock pioneers Crack The Sky, who Rolling Stone Magazine calls “…the Best U.S. Prog Band You’ve Never Heard,” return to New York for the first time in over 20 years to play a special show at The Loft At City Winery Saturday, April 20, 2019. “For the last 20 years, our New York-area fans have had to travel south to come see us, so we are all very excited to finally bring the party to them,” said the band. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to play for them and return to New York City after all of these years. It’s long overdue!”
On January 1, 1976 Stephen Holden of Rolling Stone magazine called the debut album by Crack The Sky “…one of year’s most impressive debuts.” Now, some 40 years later, the band cracked the charts with their highest charting debut in 40 years with their new studio album Living In Reverse. It charted at #7 Heatseekers, #31 Independent Current Albums, and #40 Top Current Albums. The band also released Crackology, a collection of 12 career favorites. Both came out on August 24, 2018 on Loud & Proud Records.
Living In Reverse showcases 12 new genre-defying Crack tracks that Vintage Guitar calls “…heavy Beatlesque pop” including “Talk Talk” – the lyric video was included in the recent Rolling Stonefeature, “Raining Rain” which Billboard Magazine premiered, and “Living In Reverse” which Relix premiered. The retrospective Crackology chronicles a dozen of the best re-recorded gems as culled from the band’s rich and storied 40-year catalog. Goldmine Magazine said, “…on both albums, Crack the Sky surges with the vitality and energy of a young band, bringing so much ‘crack’ to the older songs that Crackology sounds just as fresh as Living in Reverse.” Vintage Guitar said “…Crack The Sky is rockin’ better than ever.”
Tickets for their April 20 New York show are on sale now through The Loft At City Winery here.
