The Lost Satellites began as a studio project in 2008 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 provacotive, 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 War Will End is the second album from The Lost Satellites. It was tracked and mixed in Richmond, VA at Sound of Music by co-producer Al Weatherhead (Sparklehorse, Camper Von Beethoven, Cracker). Written and co-produced by Frank Scott, the album features the core ensemble with Mark Henderson, Tina Marie, and Sammy Giacco, as well as many guest performances.
The debut album, Worlds Collide, was written and produced by Scott in Petersburg, VA. Many of the former members of the Richmond, VA based band, The McGuffin, contributed to the recordings. 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."
