Rocket Scientists
Latest News - Music News

Progrock records -  - Due to its overwhelming popularity. the new epic double album, "Revolution Road" by acclaimed American progressive rock legends Rocket Scientists has already exceeded sales expectations prior to its November 7th, 2006 street date. Pre-sales orders have already catapulted the CD into a second pressing, an unexpected feat after the project's 8 year hiatus. [....] Rocket Scientists is scheduled to perform on April 28th, 2007 at the prestigious Rites of Spring Festival in Pennsylvania.

Combining Rocket Scientists' extraordinary blend of melodic and memorable songwriting with adventurous instrumental fireworks, "Revolution Road" takes the band to new heights of artistic achievement. Founding members Mark McCrite (guitar, vocals), Erik Norlander (keyboards) and Don Schiff (NS/Stick) started writing and demoing songs for the album in 2002 and even played some California concert dates. But following the loss of their drummer, Shaun Guerin, the project was put on hold. The three musicians continued to collaborate on other projects including Lana Lane's "Winter Sessions" and "Lady Macbeth" CDs and Norlander's "Music Machine" concept album. Norlander also produced Don Schiff's remarkable 2005 solo album, "Peering Over Clouds". But following the Lana Lane 10th Anniversary Tour in 2005, McCrite, Norlander and Schiff officially reunited again as Rocket Scientists and began to record this new studio opus.

"Revolution Road" brings two new musicians to the Rocket Scientists universe. Drummer Gregg Bissonette, who previously played on Norlander's "Music Machine" and Lana Lane's "Covers Collection" and "Winter Sessions" CDs, brings his dynamic versatility and technical excellence to the band. South Carolina's David McBee (Teer) has also been brought in as the second lead vocalist. McBee's powerful hard rock vocal ethic is the perfect contrast to McCrite's smooth and warm vocal stylings. Together, the two vocalists are a formidable pair that take Rocket Scientists to new uncharted worlds. "Revolution Road" is produced by Erik Norlander, and it contains stunning artwork from Polish surrealist Jacek Yerka who painted the cover to the band's last album, "Oblivion Days", Schiff's solo album, "Peering Over Clouds", as well the unforgettable covers that appear on the many famous Lana Lane albums. "Revolution Road" is a new milestone for Rocket Scientists, and it is one that will surely send the band to new altitudes. The album was released in Japan (Avalon) on September 23, 2006, and is scheduled for release in Europe and the USA on Think Tank Media (distributed by ProgRock Records/Ryko) on November 7th, 2006."

Starcastle for RosFest 2007

 RoSfest is honored to announce symphonic prog great STARCASTLE as our Friday night headliner. It has been three years in the making and finally we are able to bring you the classic 70’s progressive rock band back to the stage in 2007. 

Starcastle put its own stamp on the progressive rock scene back in the 70’s and was one of the most respected bands of the American prog scene.
Formed in Illinois in the late 60’s, the band that would come to be known as Starcastle toured under various names throughout the Midwest before settling with a name that so perfectly fits the majestic sound they came to be known for. Starcastle played over 200 dates a year in the 70’s and continued to perform live into the mid 1980’s.  The band toured with the likes of Gentle Giant, Rush, Blue Oyster Cult, Kansas, Jethro Tull and Boston just to name a few. The band released four studio albums between 1976 and 1978. Starcastle (1976), Fountains of Light (1977), Citadel (1977) and Real to Reel (1978).  The band made a few attempts to regroup after a hiatus in the mid 80s, and work has been ongoing on their album “Song of Times”, which will be released in the near future.

Starcastle’s style is heavily bass-driven, carried by soaring Yes-like vocals, with superb instrumentation all around.  This dedicated group of musicians will feature the lineup that includes vocalist Al Lewis, formerly of Alaska, Starcastle guitarist Bruce Botts, guitarist Matt Stewart, keyboardist Herb Schildt, and drummer Steve Tassler.

In 2007 we see Starcastle at the RoSfest stage for a look into the past and a leap into the future.  The band will play an ambitious set playing hits from their previous albums and tracks from their upcoming new album "Song of Times".
