Crack the Sky is an American progressive rock band formed in Weirton, West Virginia in the mid-1970s. In 1975, Rolling Stone declared their first album "debut album of the year", and in 1978, Rolling Stone Record Guide compared them to Steely Dan. The Beauty Of Nothing is the latest release from Crack The Sky, issued late in 2015. It signals a return of Crack The Sky to their earlier hard rock/prog sound. An editorial review states: "Not since the band's incredibly popular White Music CD, has Crack The Sky delivered a collection of pop/rock songs that sting while making you smile. Satirical, smirky commentary, wrapped in up tempo yes, you can dance to it music. Writer, Palumbo, has either hit a manic phase or is attempting to get our attention via the back door. In any event, this remarkable band, once again, shows their ability to shift gears while keeping their artistic integrity intact."
The band features original members John Palumbo (lead vocals/guitar), Rick Witkowski (guitar/vocals) & Joey D'Amico (drums/vocals) alongside tenured members Bobby Hird (guitar/vocals), Glenn Workman (keys/vocals) and Dave DeMarco (bass/vocals).
