Saturna is excited that Straight Magazine reports that one of their hero’s, Bob Mould named them as one of his recent favorite bands and ask them to open for him on his upcoming tour.

Easily Fooled, a blog from San Francisco reviewed the show that Saturna opened for Bob Mould at The Great American Music Hall saying, “Saturna opened the show, and they sounded really good, both poppy and rock–and I don’t mean emo! Their guitarist, especially, produced some wonderful tones. One song took me right back to Killing Joke, the Chameleons, Echo and the Bunnymen and that guitar sound I love so much. Another, with its huge wall of heavy but melodic guitar, may not have existed at all were it not for likes of Bob and other musical pioneers. They paid the obligatory homage to Bob, but I get the feeling that they really meant it.”

Glad you enjoyed it Brad and you’re welcome Rone!

Saturna have just returned from a west coast tour with Bob Mould and have had the time of our lives. We hit San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and Vancouver BC and thanks to Bob played amazing venues to sold out crowds. We made tons of new friends and fans, sold a slew of CDs and had a complete blast. Bob and everyone in his band and crew were the nicest most professional people we’ve met in the industry. We want to thank them for everything that they did to make this tour the best it could be.

We also want to thank all our old and new friends for coming out and seeing the shows. It was so great to have everyone’s support and to see your faces in the crowd. Thanks for the pictures and video you took as well. We are still sifting through everything and its going to take a while to get it all up in the Internet because there is so much, but that’s a good thing. (more…)
