There are two reasons for getting excited today. Firstly, the long wait for Satellite Stories album release of Vagabonds is over. It’s out now in Finland (27th Feb)! You can get involved in the world of  Vagabonds right now. But to add further pleasure to you experience, you can also get the live feel for the album, as Satellite Stories Vagabonds tour starts today (27th February) in Jyväskylä.

Vagabonds is available on CD, LP and digital formats from the following outlets (a selection)

YleX premiered the Vagabonds video earlier this week as well as having the Vagabonds album as Viikon Albumi. Other coverage for Satellite Stories in Finland includes interviews at HS, Metro, Rumba, Soundi, Oulu lehti, Voice, Nrj, Ylex, X3M, Rosvot, Radio Helsinki, HBL., Ksml 4/5 review.

Initial International reaction has been great: “In an age where electronic vibes seem to reign supreme, it’s nice to hear a good piece of solid indie pop “ Indie Shuffle, whilst CLASH Magazine  opines“a piece of blazing rock music built for arena use” . LA based Best New Bands commented “…one thing is definitely for sure, Vagabonds is a catchy, fun, admirable record from a band that continues along on a familiar road, but know that this is the only road worth traveling on.”

Satellite Stories Vagabonds tour starts today (27th Feb). Oulu and London dates are sold out already, with other shows  selling very well. In lieu of Oulu selling out, Satellite Stories play an afternoon show (28th Feb, 3pm ) at Levykauppa Ax Oulu this Saturday (don’t miss!). Get tickets for all dates here!

Cats Of Transnistria say this of their EP “Away is a story about escapes. The songs are fantasies of a life in another place, stripped of identity, and of hedonistic self-destruction. The entwining short-story-like fragments combine personal feelings and sensations with undertakings of fictional characters from films and novels. Spiced with black humor, these tales of suffering are equally mixed with beauty and hope.”

“the Helsinki-based duo’s sound conjure an evocative and serene nocturnal imagery of the scarce daylight season, with windy tremors seeping into the chasms, lulling the listener into a dreamland. ” Prefix

“The group is essentially a duo, crafting this really ornate soundscape music, weaving vocals in and out, and creating this aesthetic that’s extremely hard to ignore.” Austin Town Hall

“The track ‘Good Night’ is absolutely hypnotic, soft like a summer night under the stars. The tremolo guitar, the subtle organ and the dreamy vocals create a strange, comforting darkness that will keep you warm in the cold months to come.”  Ja Ja Ja Music:  5 Artists To Watch In 2015

“… we can also tell you that its staggeringly good…Markedly affecting and often spectacular, ‘Away‘ is a consuming and engrossing depiction of abjection, but it’s certainly one that’s worthy of exploration.” Gold Flake Paint

“San Francisco is dark and claustrophobic in intent and delivery living up to their doom/dream pop, whilst Henna’s vocals almost float over and through the changes in tempo from black noise to subtle understated electronica.” Even The Stars
