Paul Weller's brand new solo album Saturns Pattern (Parlaphone) was released today on both CD and 180 gram vinyl, in addition to a limited edition 7" single  that features the title track on Side A and the non-album track "Sun Goes" as its B-side. Also today, the man known to many as The Modfather and best known as founding member of The Jam and The Style Council, announced his Fall West Coast tour in support of the new album with ticket pre-sales starting tomorrow (May 20th) and general sales starting on Friday (May 22nd) at 10am Pacific Time.

Showcasing Weller's broad musical spectrum, Saturns Pattern features contributions from The Strypes?' Josh McClorey, Steve Cradock, Andy Crofts?, Steve Pilgrim?, and Syd Arthur?. It is Weller's twelfth solo release. Noteworthy album tracks include the groovin' melodic title track, the hard rocking blues of "White Sky," the dance rhythm driven track "Phoenix," and the simple musical structured albeit instantly commanding, Velvet Underground reminiscent, head-nodding rocker "Long Time."

Today's tour announcement by the longtime British guitarist, singer, and songwriter follows hot on the heels of his previously announced East Coast tour that kicks off in Philly on June 9th. Those tickets are already on sale with a third of the nine East Coast dates already sold out. So odds are that his nine-date West Coast tour (September 29th to October 9th) will sell out quickly. Although one date is a free show; October 3rd when he plays San Francisco's big annual Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. The following night he plays a second SF date at The Fillmore on Geary. SoCal dates include two nights at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles (October 7th and 8th), one night at The Observatory North Park in San Diego, and the tour's final show at the Fox Theater in Pomona October 9th.
