Saturday Looks Good to Me Return with U.S. Tour, Promises of New Studio Album
Published Feb 29, 2012Twee- and soul-inspired indie kids Saturday Looks Good to Me had a prolific run between 2002 and 2007, releasing a four full-lengths, as well as delivering singles, compilation appearances and tour-exclusive recordings, but the band have been relatively out of commission since 2007's Fill Up the Room. That's all about to change, though, as the group have announced that they've got back together and started writing a new LP.
A press release from Polyvinyl Records explains that songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Fred Thomas is currently working with recently acquired singer Carol Gray and "a stable of familiar friends" to play some U.S. shows that will cover their catalogue "from the band's beginnings to songs written last week." You can check the tour dates down below.
From there, the outfit will prep a new platter that's expected to be released sometime this fall. In the meantime, Polyvinyl is repressing the troupe's 2003 LP All Your Summer Songs for Record Store Day on April 21. The recording will be repressed in a limited run of 1,000 on 180-gram white vinyl.
