BAND

Originally formed, and inspired by college/alternative radio, in the late 80's, The April Skies came to life in the early 90's and quickly became one of the premiere bands-you-gotta-see, landing regular gigs in NYC, including the infamous CBGB’s, playing DC's 930 Club and so many venues in between. Their debut release, 1991's A Strange Western Mood, was hailed by music critics as the best indie release of the year. The band followed that up with the Mitch Easter (Let's Active, REM)-produced Drive-In EP in 1992, and toured constantly before burning out at the end of the year.

After a few years away and numerous line-up changes, the band re-emerged in 2002, releasing the Breathe EP. They followed it up with 2005's Flood, 2006's How It All Played Out, 2009's self-titled The April Skies, and 2012's Yet It Floats EP. During this time, the band continued to tour consistently throughout the northeast, playing regularly at venues like NYC's Mercury Lounge and Lancaster, PA's Chameleon club, and featured yearly at music festivals in Dewey Beach, DE.

Throughout the years, The April Skies have shared the stage with high-profile artists such as The Ocean Blue, The Lemonheads, Ride, Tommy Stinson, Don Peris (The Innocence Mission), Eve’s Plumb, Suddenly, Tammy!, Jimmie's Chicken Shack, The Dashboard Saviors, Riverside, Jason Isbell, The Hold Steady and so many more.

The April Skies currently consisting of founding member Jake Crawford (guitars, vocals), Tony Ryder (vocals), Jason Leidich (bass, vocals), Mark Higgins (keyboards and vocals), John Micek (guitars, keyboards, vocals) and Mitchell Curry (drums) is at work on a new release and is actively playing tour dates throughout the northeast US.
