    Posted: September 13 2007 at 14:06
For immediate release
 
Satellite, one of the best progressive rock bands in Poland, announced their return!
 
Wojtek Szadkowski has once again invited other musicians from neo-prog Collage to create a masterpiece of space, melody and beautiful sounds. The new album entitled "Into The Night" is the final chapter of the trilogy started in 2003 by "A Street Between Sunrise And Sunset" and followed by "Evening Games" in 2005.  As the band claims, it's their third and best offering. 
 
Satellite was founded in 2000 by Wojtek Szadkowski, who wrote and co-wrote nearly all of Collage's music and lyrics. It was meant to be only Wojtek's solo-project but soon became a real bandů As Wojtek recalls: "... I invited other musicians to play music without any commitments or plans to record an album. In a way, I wanted to go back to the beginnings, to playing music spontaneously, music which could be played without any barriers, to feel this fresh breeze of creativity again. ... It was like a new beginning for me. I wanted to start from the scratch to feel creative again, and to feel a particular uncertainty, which one can experience only in the beginning of writing new music for a totally new project. I didn't know how it would end up and this was really very fascinating. From the beginning, it was fully my own solo project."
Satellite started recording the album, "A Street Between Sunrise and Sunset," on April 6, 2002. The album was released in March 2003 by Metal Mind Productions. The second album, "Evening Games" was released in late February 2005 and reached no 8 at the top100 best selling records in Poland in February (no 2 as far as only Polish releases are concerned). At the beginning of June 2005, regular rehearsals begun to convert Satellite out of Wojtek's solo studio project into a real ban). On September 22nd 2005 Satellite recorded a live DVD.
 
2007 marks the return of Satellite. In March 2007 the band had a privilege to play at the famous Baja Prog Festival in Mexico and today they are working on their new studio album. In the meantime Satellite welcomed Jarek Michalski (bass) as a new band member. 
 
The album "Into The Night" is now in the final stage of the recordings. It will be available in two formats: a standard CD and a digipak CD with two bonus tracks. The European release date is set on 5th November 2007 / in US: 20th November (via MVD).
 
Tracklist and cover artwork to be confirmed soon.

Excellent news!
The fact they have a new bass player is great too. I love the band but i was(just a little bit) dissapointed with their performance in the BajaProg due to the lack of bass(Robert didn't played it as on the DVD "Evening Dreams"). It was a good show though.
I'm looking forward for that new cd!

So Robert's not playing bass and simply concentrating on vocals?

I have their Evening Dreams DVD, and although the music is good, the performance is very sluggish. On this particular night, they aren't the most dynamic band to watch.

Good news regarding the new album, though.

Just don't do it with Rock-Serwis from your country, they have a very bad service (maybe if your in Poland isn't going to be that bad, but my experience wasn't satisfactory)

Meh, I'm either with Laser's Edge or Amazon. I don't really need the incredibly obscure stuff.

Progressive rock band Satellite forthcoming album "Into The Night" will be released by Metal Mind Productions on the 19th November 2007 in Europe and on the 8th January 2008 in the USA (via MVD) in two versions: as a standard CD and as a digipack CD edtion including additional bonus tracks.
Once again, Wojtek Szadkowski invited his colleagues from the neo-prog-rock Collage to create a genuine musical masterpiece of space, melody and beautiful sounds. Moreover, owing to the involvement of Jarek Michalski (bass), the band's music got onto an even higher level. "Into The Night" is the final chapter of the trilogy initiated in 2003 by "A Street Between Sunrise And Sunset" and followed by "Evening Games" in 2005. It's a must have for fans of good quality progressive rock music!

I recently purchased A Street Between Sunrise and Sunset and I am really enjoying it.  I had listened to a couple of the songs streamed between PA and I think another website.  I don't believe that I have listened to anything from Evening Games yet.  Since I really like this first album, I assume that I will also probably like Evening Games.  At this point I have only "listened" to the music/album but I haven't "heard" it yet.  Translated: I haven't read the lyrics or listened closely enough to catch what the concept is.  If it is a three-part trilogy I suppose that it would be best for me to find some spare time and actually "hear" this album rather than just "listen" to it.
