Despite their early success, by January 2011, they found themselves without a label. Due to a shakeup in management at Word, they were left on the cutting room floor. Unwilling to accept defeat, the band raised money for a new record through Kickstarter. They also found new bassist, Dave Willey, a childhood friend of Dimmel’s. In Nov. 2011, they released their sophomore effort, “Frequency” to rave reviews. Taking off where their first record left off, this record can best be described as more; more rock, more dancy, more worshipful, more personal. It was again, a critical success.
2012 has found S&S still independent, and working harder than ever, relentlessly touring the US in support of “Frequency”. Additionally, the band has been ambitiously building their following through social media. In February 2012 they started posting a new video to YouTube every Friday. Some videos are their original music videos, others are cover versions of songs by such varied artists as One Direction, Skillet, John Mayer, Maroon 5, Katy Perry, Chris Tomlin, and Taylor Swift. They re-record these songs with their own S&S twist, keeping them poppy, but accessible. These covers have found widespread success, as their cover of Skillet’s “Awake and Alive” is being played on Air1 radio. They were also featured on the front page of Perez Hilton's website for their cover of Gotye's hit, "Somebody That I Used To Know". Due to overwhelming demand, on August 21, 2012, S&S is set to release a covers album aptly titled, "The Covers", featuring all 15 songs they have covered to date.
Satellites & Sirens can best be described as a hard working, must see live act. Their unique blend of synth hooks, dance beats, and rock guitars stands out amongst all genres. Their message of hope in a world that is full of disappointment speaks to the hearts of all who may hear their music. This message is clear, God is hope.
