Saturna are excitedly getting ready for tour in support of Bob Mould and wanted to thank a bunch of people on the web for the buzz they’ve help create.

Big thanks to OurStage.com who earlier this week featured Saturna as Rock Artist of the Day. They also included Saturna in their recent press release on the Business Wire, where they discussed Saturna’s performance at last year’s Bumbershoot festival.

The Plastic Ashtray from England also featured Saturna this week. This is what writer Pete Stanley had to say, “We described Saturna’s debut album as “diverse, powerful & elegant debut by a band who are quite simply brilliant”, and we weren’t wrong (honest!). As the band get their heads around going from obscure to US tour alongside Hüsker Dü legend Bob Mould, we ask you…. why aren’t these guys your new favourite band?” – Thanks Pete

And last but not least, thanks to Indie Mom from Speed of Dark also gave our show at the El Rey, LA a shout out. We’ll see you in LA!

Saturna is excited to announce that we will be doing some touring during the month of March.  We’re putting it all together right now and will announce dates and the headliner soon, but keep your eyes peeled, this is going to be huge!

I want to take a second to thank Kyra Reed for her amazing ideas, untiring help and willingness to listen at a moment’s notice.  She is someone that can help take bands to the next level and should be the envy of every band not working with her.  Check out my endorsement of her along with testimonials from our friends The Upsidedown and Saskia Vogel.

Big thanks to McLindy, a new friend, who took the above photo of us at our house party in early January.  Tons of people showed up and we had a complete blast playing with our friends Dance Terror and getting down to the sounds of some local DJs.
