Jack Shakespeare makes a2RK a 5 piece…..
Jack has been in various metal bands in and around Birmingham but has now discovered Progressive Rock - glad you saw the light!
Jack’s influences include Dream Theater, Rush and Opeth.
By bringing a technical but groovy approach to playing bass, he will contribute to the sonic capabilities of a2RK as we finalise our forthcoming EPs and live shows.
Alexandre Santos is originally from Brazil, by the age of 12 he had started learning some Brazilian songs on his first guitar before discovering the world of prog rock. He is mainly inspired by Floyd, Zeppelin, Dream Theater, Spock's Beard...
"I'm very excited to join the a2RK journey.."

We’re working on quite a few songs at the moment, with plans for 1 or 2 new EPs before the end of the year (with a bit of luck) - however, we have decided to move out of our rehearsal room at Hill Top Works and into a more purpose built recording studio on a different floor. Although a lot smaller, we have managed to shed a bit of kit surplus to requirements so we should fit everything in - the move with be complete sometime today, but sorting out where to put everything, connecting it all up and becoming operational again could take several week, so bear with us…

@aRKcreativity 3rd up! Metal smashed. Drums, footwork, tribal. Synths, tidal waves, slow motion crash. Arpeggio six string, rusted, crunched crisp. Vox mournful, storylines and melody lines. The stereo shifts. #musichouruk #monsterthread https://t.co/dJFJh4lT3y
