Los Angeles, CA – One of the most talked about up and coming prog groups of 2014, An Endless Sporadic, is releasing a new single on the heels of their appearance on the Progressive Nation 2014 cruise hosted by Transatlantic’s Mike Portnoy! The new single, featuring Zach Kamins on guitar, Eloy Palacios on bass, Tony Solis on additional guitar, and Andy Gentile on drums, is titled “Derpulous”; a short instrumental piece about the journey of an alien seahorse in treacherous seas.
“A wild progressive sonic ride. It’s thrilling to hear progressive rock that is fresh and inspiring. These guys are obviously very skilled and their music is brimming over with youthful creativity and vitality.” – Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater)
Originally formed the band in 2005 in Houston, TX through a series of random jam/improv sessions by Zach Kamins and Andy Gentile. Eventually, AES’s song “Sun Of Pearl” was featured in Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland video game. The track “Impulse” was added as a bonus song in Guitar Hero 3, and the track “Anything” has been featured in Guitar Hero: World Tour as free Downloadable Content in the Neversoft Track Pack. The band has a wide range of musical influences, which can be heard throughout their work, and include ELP, King Crimson, Dream Theater, The Flower Kings, Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Dillinger Escape Plan, Sikth, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Primus, Mr. Bungle and Ozric Tentacles.
An Endless Sporadic’s recent performance on the Progressive Nation at Sea 2014 cruise garnered high praise from those who attended! The cruise, which ran from February 18-22, also featured legendary Jon Anderson of YES, Transatlantic, Portnoy Sheehan Macalpine Sherinian, Adrian Belew, King’s X, Spock’s Beard, The Flower Kings and many others. Says Zach, “Sixthman ran a competition called Sixthman Soundcheck, where they were selecting three up and coming progressive rock bands to add to the bill. We actually weren’t selected, but we later received an e-mail that Mike Portnoy had a hard time choosing the three bands and decided to add a 5th stage to the cruise. We were selected to play on that stage.”
