The members of Sky Eats Airplane started their musical careers in two separate bands. Brack began playing guitar in Backseat Driver in 2003. It was a Punk/Post-Hardcore group which consistently drew a hundred people per show. Meanwhile, Lee created a band called Our First Fall with Daniel Hunter (Now PlayRadioPlay!), which had an indie/post-hardcore sound. By the time Backseat Driver failed due to problems with band members, Our First Fall was drawing a consistent hundred people per show. The band quickly jumped at the chance to let Brack play guitar. Brack and Lee used their differing musical approaches to their advantage, combining both traditional and radical sounds to create a unique chemistry. Lee had an inventive musical approach and Brack fine-tuned songs with his natural, music mindset. This creative path led them to experiment with electronica programs. Eventually, the band came to an impasse with Brack and Lee deciding to pursue a hybrid genre of electronica music and hardcore rock.
The Result was Sky Eats Airplane, created in 2005 by Lee Duck and Brack Cantrell. Following the release of several demo songs, the band became a huge online success and became well known in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. For a total of three months, Brack and Lee worked on their self-produced album titled “Everything Perfect on the Wrong Day”. The entire nine-track album was exclusively recorded and produced by the duo. On July 15th, 2006, Sky Eats Airplane held their CD release party for their debut album, and alone drew 125 people for a fantastic live show.
In the Fall of 2006, Brack left the band due to wanting to pursue softer acoustic and poppy music. Lee took this as a great opportunity to have a nationwide search for the perfect singer for the band. After over two months of searching, Jerry Roush was made vocalist for the band. To solidify the live performance, Sky Eats Airplane has evolved into a full 5-piece band with two guitars, bass, drummer, and singer. During the same time, local Texas metal act (in theory) broke up coincidentally at the same time. In no time, three of their past members joined the band: Zack Ordway, Johno Erickson, and Kenny Schick.
Sky Eats Airplane accomplished everything without any promotion and is mostly advertised by word of mouth from the listeners that they wouldn’t still be here without.
