IO Earth Performance Postponed to Next ProgStock

We are saddened beyond measure to tell everyone that IO Earth will not be able to perform at ProgStock 2019. The ProgStock leadership takes full responsibility for not submitting IO Earth visa applications in time. Between gathering the outrageous amount of information required by our government and fitting the rest of the process in with the band’s already very busy schedule, there simply is not enough time left to jump through all the flaming hoops our country puts in the way of incredible bands like IO Earth coming over here to perform. We apologize to IO Earth and everyone looking forward to seeing them at this year’s festival.

We have already committed to having IO Earth perform at the next ProgStock. They have put together a seriously awesome show especially for our audience, and we are going to make it happen!

From Dave Cureton: “We are very sad that this has happened. We were very much looking forward to performing at ProgStock 2019. We are going to miss all our IO Earth family, but we can’t wait to see you all at the next ProgStock! Peace and love!”

We will adjust Saturday’s performance schedule soon. We are devastated by this turn of events and appreciate your patience and understanding as we regroup.

Rocket Scientists to Blast Off Again at ProgStock 2019!

ProgStock will return in 2019 to the Union County Performing Arts Center (UCPAC) Mainstage Theater in Rahway, NJ on Columbus Day Weekend (October 11-13, 2019). Check here often for more announcements!

We are excited to announce the long-awaited return of Rocket Scientists to the stage…and it’s happening at ProgStock 2019! Rocket Scientists was formed in the late 1980s by keyboardist Erik Norlander and vocalist/guitarist Mark McCrite. The two released their first CD, Earthbound, in 1993 joined by then-session bassist Don Schiff. Schiff quickly became a part of the band for their second release in 1995, Brutal Architecture, and the three toured in the US and Europe in 1997 culminating in the live CD, Earth Below and Sky Above: Live in Europe and America. In 1999, they released Oblivion Days, raising the bar on already high expectations.

At the turn of the century, Norlander, Schiff and McCrite all worked on solo projects in addition to backing symphonic rock vocal icon Lana Lane on several tours around the world. After an eight year hiatus, Rocket Scientists released its fourth studio album Revolution Road in 2006 to high accolades from the press and fans worldwide. In January 2008, they released their first box set entitled Looking Backward.

Rocket Scientists toured internationally in 2007-2009 to support the Revolution Road and Looking Backward releases performing at RoSFest, 3 Rivers Prog Festival, Bay Area Rock Fest, Baja Prog (MX) and Rotherham Rocks (UK) in addition to a long string of club dates. Their latest releases are Refuel, a 12-song full-length album mixing vocal and instrumental tracks, and Supernatural Highways, a 30-minute all-instrumental Digipak EP.

ProgStock 2019 is where the 10-year dry-spell of Rocket Scientists playing live comes to an end. You can find more information about the band and view some past performances on their Facebook page (Rocket Scientists @ Facebook) and YouTube channel (Rocket Scientists @ YouTube).
