San Antonio-based songwriter, Jared Putnam, leader of the sometimes more, but usually one-man pop-rock band, The March Divide, is prolific. It’s a word used often / often misused, but when it comes to Putnam, it applies.  As such, The March Divide announces the upcoming release of a new album! Saturdays follows-up two album and three EP releases from Putnam in just a three-year period, and according to the artist, it’s his most satisfying work to date.

“I think I finally made the record I wanted to make,” Putnam says of the follow-up to 2014’s Billions and its accompanying 2015 EP “+1.” “I didn’t set out to write an album so soon after the last, but I never really stopped writing.”

It remains to be seen how Putnam’s growing fan base (the single “I Told You So” from Billions has already surpassed a half-million streams) will react to the new material, but it’s a safe bet that Putnam’s hard work and lyrical honesty will continue to resonate, especially on “Exit Signs,” the first single and video from Saturdays, which Putnam jokes must be about his past, because “I can’t seem to stop writing about it.”

“It's about running away,” Putnam explains of how the song, like so many by The March Divide, reflects on leaving a past life behind. “My songs help me figure it all out, I think. I wouldn't change a thing, and closure has been very hard for me, but I think I'm there.”

Saturdays by The March Divide arrives on May 13th, 2016, distributed by Burnside. The March Divide will be touring before, during, and after the release of Saturdays, as per usual.  Jared Putnam is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
