SATAN & MEGASTAR’s Debut Album is finally here. . . A collaborative effort between Adam John Miller (The Manhattan Love Suicides, T.O.Y.S, The Medusa Snare, The Wednesday Club) and Lisa Bouvier (The Flatmates, The Proctors, Stars In Coma, Lost Summer Kitten): Written and recorded a song at a time over a period of ten months and often blurring the fine line between fact, fiction, reality and authenticity. Doom Pop seemed the most appropriate label for the music that came out of the sessions; not a deliberate distancing from the more upbeat, optimistic nature of their other musical output, but a natural extension of and reaction to their surroundings: both those that they found themselves in and those that they only had themselves to blame for. Circumstances frequently threatened to derail the completion of the album, but just as frequently it was the album that pulled things back together. Decide for yourselves what really happened. Our gratitude extends to Steven Howells for mastering, John Hryschko, Mattias Lidehäll and Andrew Rowsell for all the times they pointed the camera where they were told, Silja Haddal Mork for the Album Cover photograph, and everyone else that put up with us all this time.
