Crack The Sky, the US prog-rock band who broke onto the scene in 1976 with an album that Rolling Stone called “one of the year’s most impressive debuts,” will return to New York for the first time in more than 20 years. The group will perform at The Loft at City Winery on Saturday, April 20.
“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,” the band said in a press release. “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!”
Last year, the band released a new studio album, “Living in Reverse,” which hit No. 7 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Crack The Sky in 2018 also released “Crackology,” a retrospective collection of 12 past favorites.
Crack The Sky’s current lineup is: John Palumbo (lead vocals, guitars, keys), Rick Witkowski (guitars and vocals), Joey D’Amico (drums and vocals), Bobby Hird (guitars and vocals), Glenn Workman (keyboards and vocals) and Dave DeMarco (bass and vocals),
