GUSTER GOES GREEN

GUSTER TO RELEASE 8-SONG EP — SATELLITE — ON APRIL 10
EP Includes Remix of Current Top Ten Triple A Radio Single "Satellite"
4 Brand New Original Songs, And 2 Rare Live Covers
Environmentally Conscious Satellite to be 100% Carbon Neutral


Guster
Reprise recording artists Guster will release Satellite, an 8-song EP featuring a dreamy, electronica-inspired remix of their Top 10 Triple A radio single of the same name, on April 10. The track was remixed by up-and-coming producers The Astronauts who have worked with artists such as Cut Chemist. It is currently available for digital download on iTunes.

The original version of "Satellite," which is also Top 50 at Modern Rock radio, is the second single from the Boston-bred quartet's current album, the melody-minded Ganging Up On The Sun, which was released by Reprise in June 2006.

The EP also includes four brand-new songs, "G Major," "Rise and Shine," "Timothy Leary," and "I'm Through," plus two rare live covers — the Beatles' "Two of Us" from a performance on L.A. radio station KCRW, and a cover of '80s power ballad "Total Eclipse of the Heart" (made famous by Bonnie Tyler) recorded live at the State Theater in Portland, Maine featuring non-singer/drummer Brian Rosenworcel's vocal stylings.

In keeping with Guster's environmentally friendly practices – Adam Gardner and wife Lauren Sullivan founded environmental action group Reverb in 2004, while the band developed their now-annual Campus Consciousness Tour in 2006, which again kicks off this March and aims to spread awareness and support for the environment as well as inspire students to get involved with earth-friendly causes – the Satellite EP is entirely carbon neutral. The band has purchased renewable energy credits from Native American renewable energy company NativeEnergy to offset the manufacturing process. In addition, the packaging has been printed using soy inks on paper certified as sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council. The earth-friendly packaging is part of the Warner Music Group's ongoing efforts to be mindful of its environmental impact. WMG, which already uses recycled paper in all of its CD booklets, is also making Guster's entire catalog, nearly a million CDs, carbon neutral.

Guster — singer/guitarist Ryan Miller, singer/guitarist Adam Gardner, percussionist Brian Rosenworcel, and multi-instrumentalist Joe Pisapia — have been on the road since last summer promoting Ganging Up On The Sun. The tour continues this Spring with confirmed dates listed below.

What does carbon neutral mean? In the absence of carbon? How is this environmentally beneficial?

Carbon Nuetral is such a joke. Nothing more then guilt appeasement for the rich. Fuel is still being burned to produce your electricity no matter how much money you give to some wind power company or plant some trees (which are probably non-native and disrupte the ecosystem) Energy conservation is legit, this is not.

What Carbon Neutral means here, is that they have somehow estimated the amount of CO2 emissions that will occur during the manufacturing process of the albums. In order to "offset" these emissions, they are paying Native Energy, who will one day build a facility that will reduce CO2 emissions. Most of Native's projects include methane capture..aka Cow Power. In the case of Stoneyfield farm, they built a menure ingestor, which captures the methane from the decaying menure and then burns the methane for energy. Methane is much more potent Greenhouse Gas than CO2, 22 times more potent. When methane is burned, CO2 is emitted.

Here and now the manufacturing of Guster's new CD will still emit carbon into the atmosphere. But they will be paying Native to one day build a project that will capture GHG emissions in their name.

Make sense?

They need to hook up a hose to me. I've been producing some very potent methane all day. Damn hamburger helper. Smells like a gimmick.
