The fifth and final Satellite Stories album Cut Out The Lights is out now via Playground. 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’. Next, the single from the album, ‘Carried Away’ was released and singer Esa Mankinen told us “Carried away is a song about losing track with reality, but also realizing that’s part of life”.
The final chapter in their story has been announced in the form of new video for the title track ‘Cut out the Lights’. The band set off on their European Farewell Tour earlier this week and head to the UK on October 15th for a show at the Lexington in London.

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.
