The fifth and final Satellite Stories album Cut Out The Lights arrives on the 7th September 2018. As fans around the world digested the news, the blow was considerably softened when they heard the first taste from Cut Out The Lights, ‘Coupons’ – with Clash Magazine proclaiming the track “A fizzing, cracking, explosive return.” Today we share with you a new single from the album, ‘Carried Away’. The band's singer Esa Mankinen tells us "Carried away is a song about losing track with reality, but also realizing that's part of life". Listen to 'Carried Away' here

In September Satellite Stories start their The Final Story – Farewell Tour, playing shows in Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Netherlands, England and Spain.  

Satellite Stories are Finland's biggest and most successful indie act ever, with over 60 million streams worldwide, having appeared at over 300 headline shows, in no less than 17 countries spanning 3 continents. ‘Cut Out The Lights’ is an album where the band have taken the decision to self produce, to maintain complete creative control and make certain the ideas come across fully in the manner they wish. “It is all on us again now, which is a position we love, the challenge is immense, we have put everything into this record, a full year in the making,” says lead guitarist Marko Heikkinen.
