The Lost Satellites began as a studio project in the spring of 2007 in Petersburg, VA. The sound is a colorful mix of songwriting and lyricism continuing the traditions of 60's rock and 80's and 90's grunge and alt rock, blanketed with contemporary indie style and attitude. Openly introspective, often provocative, a bit irreverent, loads of fun, certainly post modern...In a medium where image has become more important than integrity, The Lost Satellites are staying focused on the music and true to the art. The band fully formed in 2008 following the release of the first album, so catch a show.
The debut album, Worlds Collide, was written and produced by Frank Scott at Flying Squirrel Studios in Petersburg, VA. Special guest appearances are made by Peter Holsapple (R.E.M., Hootie and the Blowfish, The Db's), who plays a stellar hammond organ arrangement on song 4, "Not For Profit." Another former Db's member, Chris Stamey (Whiskeytown, Caitin Cary, The Db's) mixed the album, and lended a nice synth track on "Hole."
