“I love horror movies,” says Jared Putnam of The March Divide. “From the great old ones, to the new super-cheesy, I find my thrills in them.”


Jared Putnam, the main man that is the San Antonio-based band, The March Divide, has launched a fall tour (see itinerary below) in support of Saturdays, his most recent album. The run of dates will take Putnam throughout Texas (including shows with Texas Is The Reason’s, Garrett Klahn) and out west to California in November where Putnam will be supporting the upcoming all-new EP, “Bribing Jace,” which marks the artist’s first release following three full-length, and three EP releases, in just three years.

While “Bribing Jace” is being readied, Putnam has offered up the music video for the latest Saturdays single “Go To Sleep,” a Grindhouse-style clip with production values rivaling current studio-produced horror films.

“I love horror movies,” Putnam says about the video. “I can't explain why, but from the really great old ones, to the new super cheesy, I find my thrills, comedy, drama, and romance in them.”  When director Daniel E. Martin came to Putnam with the concept for “Go To Sleep,” Putnam initially thought it was too ambitious, but after falling in love with it, concluded that anything less would be settling.

Martin explains, "'Go To Sleep' is unique among March Divide songs in that it has a darker feel. Themes of secrecy, duplicity, vitriol, and a nocturnal setting, all playing to an upbeat, almost punk-rock jangle. It really led us to extrapolate the villainy of it all.”

Saturdays, the latest album from The March Divide is out now. An all-new EP, “Bribing Jace,” arrives on Nov. 4thJared Putnam is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
