Punk rock outfit Satellites have announced their new EP, Black Dog, will be out September 29th. The band also premiered their new single and accompanying video for “Thread”, which will be available on Spotify this coming Monday.
fter taking some time to work on ‘Black Dog’ with their friend and producer Troy Brady, it became apparent that rushing into it would only lead to coming up short. Instead, they’ve given it some love and managed to created something they’re all extremely proud of. Coming off the back of a recent headline tour with New Zealand legends, Braves and Melbourne’s resident sad boys, Bukowski, with the anticipation of new music looming closely behind, “Black Dog” is finally their way to show that Satellites’ trials of the past have not been in vain.
Vocalist Mitch Chamberlain gave his thoughts on how the single’s themes and lyrics came about. “‘Thread’ is about my struggle to come to terms with the fact that I may just have to accept the mould that society has chosen for me. Maybe I was never presented with the opportunity, or maybe, I just didn’t have the guts to do what needed to be done to get where I wanted to be. And maybe now I’ve run out of time.”
