Supernal Endgame's beginning was in 2000 when John Eargle and Rob Price had the idea of forming a unique band fusing symphonic progressive rock and artsy power-pop all with a spiritual emphasis. They brought in other musicians, (notably Dan Pomeroy, whom they had played with before) to share this goal. A healthy dose of AOR pomp rock and a touch of celtic folk were also thrown into the mix with tin whistles and violins playing a prominent role. If you can imagine the sound of bands like Yes, Kansas, Rush, and Genesis mixed with the modern pop of bands like Keane, Mutemath, The Corrs, and Jellyfish, and the spiritual sensibilities of, say, Iona or Neal Morse, then you might get close to describing the style of Supernal Endgame... thoughtful compositions with tons of hooks.
The band's first project was to mix all of these styles into a unique "worship" project titled "Touch the Sky". A couple of discs worth of tunes have been (and still are being) recorded, but the first volume was released on the Progrock Records label on March 30th 2010.
"Touch the Sky: Vol. I" boasts two very special guests. Roine Stolt of The Flower Kings and Transatlantic adds his tasty guitar and imaculate tone to one of the tunes and Randy George of Ajalon and the Neal Morse band plays bass on several tracks. The release's songcraft and dense arrangements are presently creating a buzz for the band in the prog rock community."I just love a good hook and a good melody and Supernal Endgame has it in droves, I was really excited to get these guys on the label.” said Shawn Gordon, President of ProgRock Records.
The Summer of 2010 brought two new members to the band. Tom More plays bass guitar and Jett Cheek is on keyboards. Generally a violinist is used in live gigs, but the search for the perfect permanent member continues. In the Summer of 2011, Dan left the band to pursue another vision. New guitarist, John Crafton has stepped in to take over his duties.
Concerning other projects, Supernal Endgame has contributed a song on Colassus' Flower Kings tribute album on the Musea label recently released and they appear on the new CPR 4 compilation. They will be contributing a tune to a forthcoming Yes tribute album on the Mellow label as well. A tune was also donated to the Haiti Relief Projekt in the Spring of 2010. Of course, "Touch the Sky vol. II" is due out in early 2013. Recording is well under way and about two thirds of it is finished as of the end of 2010. Some of our older recordings will also be released in an unofficial capacity. Keep checking back for more details.
