Crack the Sky is an American progressive rock band formed in Weirton, West Virginia. In 1975, Rolling Stone declared their first album for Lifesong Records “debut album of the year”, and in 1978, the Rolling Stone Record Guide compared them to Steely Dan. Their first three albums charted on the Billboard 200 while supporting Kansas, Boston, Supertramp, Zappa, Styx, Rush and Foreigner.
To date the band has released 20 records and a live DVD. In 2017 they signed to Loud and Proud Records and this year simultaneously released two new CDs: Crackology a re-recorded best of package and Living In Reverse – 12 brand new originals which continue to solidify CTS’s reputation of genre-bending progressive rock.
The current CTS lineup is the longest-running (7 years) incarnation of the band and features 3 original members: singer/composer John Palumbo, guitarist Rick Witkowski and drummer Joey D’Amico along with longtime guitarist Bobby Hird, keysman Glenn Workman and bassist Dave DeMarco. 43 years after their debut, fans continue to flock to the east coast from all over the country to see and hear this truly progressive rock band.
