A whole lot of Crack The Sky is coming our way this week.
The veteran West Virginia-formed prog rock troupe is delivering not one but two albums on Friday, Aug. 24: Living In Reverse, whose metallic "Raining Rain" premieres exclusively below, is a set of all new material; while Crackology features a dozen previous tracks re-recorded by the current sextet, which still features founding members John Palumbo, Rick Witkowski, Joey D'Amico and Bobby Hird.
Palumbo tells Billboard that the double dose of CTS was the idea of the group's new label, Loud and Proud Records. "They suggested that we do an anthology because a lot of people aren’t familiar with our early work, and release it along with the new album," Palumbo notes. "This is what they do; They take acts like us that have been around for a while and kind of give them a fresh start. I'm not gonna argue with them. I'm just happy to put the music out."
