Philly rock band Satellite Hearts will release their new single “Cost of Living” on March 21st ahead of a mini spring tour. The single comes after the four-piece’s debut full-length Imperial Green (released last November) and proves that the band is still on their game of creating catchy rock & roll tunes that cross the decades from classic rock to indie psych / rock. Tickets and information for their all-ages show at World Cafe Live on Sunday, March 24th with Black Stars and Early Ape can be found here. Watch the live video of “Cost of Living” from January’s Walla Fest in Norristown below.
Philly rockers Satellite Hearts played a set at Norristown’s Walla Fest recently, psyching out to songs from their recent Imperial Green LP and sharing two new songs with the enthusiastic crowd, “Fearless Freaks” and “Fools Gold.” The tracks highlight the best of Satellite Hearts, with a rousing instrumental jam, anchored by bassist Lucas Rinz’s driving groove, threading the two songs together. Watch a video of the band performing “Fearless Freaks” and “Fools Gold” at Walla Fest below. Tickets and information for their show at World Cafe Live upstairs with Black Stars and Early Ape on March 24th can be found here.
Ahead of releasing their debut album Imperial Green at the end of November, local rock foursome Satellite Hearts filmed a video for “New York City” in the Big Apple. Between the percussive clashing and lead singer Justin Pellecchia’s sixties psych-rock vocals, Satellite Hearts are what I imagine a Lou Reed-fronted Steppenwolf would sound like. The video shows the band traveling through the tough city streets, with found-footage of riots as Pellacchia sings about rough living and chaos. Satellite Hearts will play The Fire on December 19th with Spirit Animal and Relatives. Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here.
