Italian folk-punks SATELLITE INN have just released their first new album in twenty-two years.

Formed in the Emilia-Romagna region during the mid-90s, the band were considered strong contenders on the US scene, signing to North Carolina label MoodFood (as a replacement for Ryan Adams' Whiskeytown) and touring widely with pals Richmond Fontaine.

The band broke up in the early '00s, morphing into punk-blues outfits Saint Four, The Silent Strangers and JD Hangover. Singer and guitarist Stiv Cantarelli toured with Bob Mould and has recently found success as producer of Rimini punks Smalltown Tigers.

Cantarelli wrote a fresh batch of songs during Covid lockdown, with original members Fabrizio Gramellini and Antonio Perugini reconvening later to record the album, succinctly titled Satellite Inn.

Check out the single, 'Carry On, Benjamin'...


Satellite Inn is available to buy now here. The band are currently planning UK dates for the autumn.
