Hailing from the stunning beaches of the Central Coast, just out of Sydney, Australia, The Satellite Nation consists of childhood friends; dynamic frontman Adam Byrne, Grant Matzen on bass, Glenn Fraser and Daniel Aird, both on guitar and Brendon Williams on drums.
The Satellite Nation has had a dream start to their music careers. In just over 3 years, they have released two EP's Hopelicity and Wake The Silent Day as well as their debut album Innocence Is Running Out, all to critical acclaim and commercial success. They have toured Australia extensively, building a killer live show and a solid, loyal fan base. They have received high rotation on radio and won numerous awards, guaranteeing their place in the Australian Music Scene.
The Satellite Nation are committed to their art, both as musicians and song writers. It is this commitment that has seen them travel across the world in search of inspiration and excellence, leaving the safety of their home turf and relocating to Vancouver, Canada in mid 2007. Since that time, they have written over 2 albums worth of material, recorded their new self titled EP in Los Angeles, filmed a music video out in Joshua Tree for the first single 'Last Time' and played sell out shows in Vancouver and LA, which has all lead to The Satellite Nation quickly building an exciting buzz and a devoted fan base.
The Satellite Nation write with brutal honesty about the coming of age of the Y generation; love, life, loss, success and the world around us. They are a true musical collective, raw and organic, continually pushing the boundaries and themselves, creating a sound distinctly their own.
With an independent release date set for January 26th, 2008 upcoming television and radio appearances and a US/Canadian tour planned for 2008, watch for the sparks to fly!
