GUSTER GOES GREEN
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
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.
