Hello friends. We have some very exciting news to announce. After spending the better part of this year writing, producing, recording, rewriting, re-recording, re-producing (but not reproducing) we are finally done with our debut full-length album. The new record is a ten song LP called Lift and we are immensely proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish with this. We cannot wait for it to hit your ears. It’s hopeful. It’s sad. It’s joyous. It’s introspective. It’s artistic. It’s beautiful. It’s been a labor of love for us and the effort and attention to every detail has make for a great sounding and moving album. We hope it moves you too.
Oh, remember when we said that it was done? Well, we kinda lied. We’ve finished recording all ten songs so the longest and most time consuming part of the process is done. Luckily we were able to record for free in an awesome studio, borrow a ton of really great equipment, bring in other musicians to accompany us on some tracks, and we’ve exploited the generosity of our friends and families like the good little DIY band we are. But this next step is going to require some outside help.
We need to get Lift mixed, mastered and all pretty and dressed up for the big bad world. This requires more investment than our limited budget can afford. In order to get the album completed in the way that we know it needs to be done we’ve decided to start a crowdsourcing campaign. This will be a great way for you guys to get involved. You can support us and what we do in any way you can, large or small, and we are going to offer you guys some really cool rewards for your help in getting Lift off the ground.
Our Kickstarter campaign will be launching next week and we’re going to start rewarding you right from the beginning. Within the campaign video you will get an exclusive sneak peak at the album art and a taste of the music that you can expect on the album. Hopefully you will be able to break away from cat videos long enough to check it out. Once the campaign is done we will set a release date for the album and work on finishing up Lift.
Thank you all for coming with us on this adventure. We love you from the bottom of our hearts

As many of you may have guessed, a couple weeks ago our beloved Sammi Doll officially left My Satellite. She was given an amazing opportunity to join one her biggest musical inspirations as the new touring keyboardist for IAMX. Though we were very sad to see her leave us, we are happy for new adventures both for her and for My Satellite. I met Sammi just over two years ago as I was building the live band around the music I had written and recorded for the Telescopes and Depths albums. It was clear from the moment that I met her that she belonged in this band and she has been a dedicated member of this crazy train ever since. Her talents have been instrumental in helping us expand our audience, connect with our fans and put on a great live show. She may have moved on, but she’ll always be part of the My Satellite family. We wish her all the luck in her new endeavor. We know first hand just how fortunate they are to have her with them.
As for My Satellite, Andy, Justin, Ryan and myself remain as dedicated as ever to making music. The four of us have been in the studio for the past month, hammering away at a new self-produced, self-recorded, completely independent ten song album that is going to be sexing your ears later this year. We are closing in on the end of the tracking process and couldn’t be prouder of how this is turning out. We are entering a new chapter, and a very exciting one at that. This will be the first album where I didn’t write, play, sing and record every aspect of it myself. It’s a progression. A very, very good progression. This is more fully realized album. It’s artistic. It’s experimental. It’s My Satellite as I’ve always dreamed it to be. We will be releasing more info, pictures, and videos in the coming months as we get nearer to a release date, including great opportunities for you to get involved in the process with us, so stay with us.
The voices and faces of My Satellite may change with time, but the music that drove me to start this band, the music that you know and love, is still pouring from our veins and leaping from our lungs. We are on a mission with each other and we are on a mission with You. Our Fans. Our Inspiration. Our Astronauts. We will always move forward with you. We will always be your sanctuary. We will always be your friends. We look forward to entering a new orbit with you all.

And our latest video just released yesterday is “Dearest Autumn”!! This one is so epic that your pants will turn brown in the back. Just go with it. Repost!09.12.12
We recorded a live set over the summer and today we are releasing the first of five songs from this live in-studio series that we shot, edited and recorded ourselves. We did this for all of you who haven’t been able to see us play live yet, and because it was just fun as hell to do. We wish we could play for each and every one of you, but hopefully this little DIY project that we did will give you a taste of what we’re about. We’ll be releasing a new video every Wednesday for the next five weeks so be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/mysatellitemusic
The first song is Beneath the Fall. Share. Reblog. Repost. Enjoy! <308.23.12
