Hollywood, California: An Endless Sporadic, the all-original instrumental Fusion/Progressive Rock Tour-de-Force, that gained worldwide success with their 2008 EP release Ameliorate, which featured tracks on Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland, Guitar Hero® III: Legends of Rock, and Guitar Hero® World Tour, will perform live at Rusty’s Surf Ranch, located on the legendary and historic Santa Monica Pier, Friday, July 30, 2010, in an ALL AGES show beginning at 11:45 pm. Dream Theater keyboardist, Jordan Rudess, calls An Endless Sporadic, “A wild progressive sonic ride.”
An Endless Sporadic’s Rusty’s Surf Ranch performance comes on the heels of the band’s series of live performances at legendary Hollywood venues, the Viper Room and Roxy Theatre, where they continually perform to increasingly larger, near capacity crowds of captivated fans. For the highly anticipated ALL AGES Rusty’s Surf Ranch performance, An Endless Sporadic will be meeting, posing for pictures with, and signing autographs for fans. In addition, ‘Fan Appreciation Swag Packs’ will be available, starting at under $20, which include An Endless Sporadic’s “Octamaraca” or classic “S Logo” tee-shirt, and autographed copies of the band’s hit debut EP, Ameliorate and/or their most recent full-length, self-titled studio release, “An Endless Sporadic”.
In November 2009, An Endless Sporadic released their first, full-length, self-titled CD of original material, with three tracks available as additional downloadable content for Guitar Hero® 5. This An Endless Sporadic studio effort was produced by leading Progressive Rock guitarist Roine Stolt and engineered by bassist Jonas Reingold, both of the legendary Flower Kings. Roine, who is also the lead guitarist of the Progressive Rock Supergroup, Transatlantic, featuring Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, calls An Endless Sporadic, “Two young guys with that youthful energy and a strong will to create masterpieces with no boundaries.”
Leading Progressive Rock news site, SeaofTranquility.org states, “It's too bad I didn't hear this one in 2009, as it easily would have made my 'Best of the Year' list."
An Endless Sporadic, in the vein of RUSH, DREAM THEATER, COHEED AND CAMBRIA, PORCUPINE TREE, ELP, and TOOL, has developed a devoted international following of rabid Heavy Metal, Fusion, Progressive and Hard Rock and electronic game music fans since the release of Ameliorate, from which over 50,000 downloads of their single, IMPUSLE, which appears on Guitar Hero® III: Legends of Rock, have been sold to date.
An Endless Sporadic consists of guitarist/keyboardist and primary songwriter Zach Kamins, drummer Andy Gentile, bassist Kfir Melamed, formerly of the Red Elvises, and Berklee-trained guitarist Tony Solis.
Music Connection Magazine gives An Endless Sporadic a rare high-score of 8.4 out of 10, calling the band’s music, “altogether cinematic and dynamic, deftly recorded, performed with touch and agility and with plenty of imaginative bending of time signatures,” and Sputnik Music states, "...arguably the most progressive two-man show the world has ever seen."
