Satellite Hearts is pure rock 'n' roll, wild and dangerous, yet full of awe and childlike wonder. "It's like The Clash infused with unpolished 80's brat punk that trekked through the 60's while flirting with bell-bottomed psychedelics". At the end of the cosmic mind trip Satellite Hearts is truly the distinctive sound of Justin Pellecchia (guitar, vocals, and harmonica), Lucas Rinz (bass, vocals) and Keaton Thandi (drums, percussion, and vocals). Three beings who welcome you graciously into their world. 

     Established in December 2009 in Yardley, Pennsylvania, Satellite Hearts has released two albums (Imperial Green & Desire Forces The Flow), one single (Doing Things Right), and one EP (Four To The Floor) respectively since then.  The band continues to write, record, and perform along the east coast of the United States, while residing in Philadelphia, PA.  

     Together they've performed at MusikFest 2013 in Toronto, CA, opened for Lauryn Hill (Fugees) in 2014 at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA, backed up many different singers in various genres, and played in many venues from large to small.  Notably they've opened up for Deen Ween from cult band Ween in the U.S. at the Ottobar in Maryland and in Charleston, South Carolina. 

     As of right now they are currently managed by Greg Frey former manager of Ween and have started recording the follow up to Desire Forces The Flow.  Currently, they are on a two month break until guitarist and singer, Justin Pellecchia, returns from a trip to the Philippines.
