On April 11, the mayors of both Minneapolis and Duluth have declared the day "Trampled by Turtles Day."

Since forming in Duluth, Minnesota in 2003, Trampled by Turtles always felt they were able to attain an energy on stage that can't be found in the studio. They were so comfortable playing on the road that they treated their previous albums' recording processes like tours. For Stars and Satellites, however, Trampled by Turtles didn't want to simply try to recreate a live show. "We wanted to make a record that breathes," explains Dave Simonett (guitar/vocals), "musically we wanted to step out of our comfort zone." "This record is all about going inward," Erik Berry (mandolin, vocals) adds, "building a focused bond as players and friends, and bringing a different mindset to the sounds Trampled by Turtles can make." With the help of engineer Tom Herbers (Low, Jayhawks) the band moved into "Soleil Pines," a log home outside of Duluth, to record. "You know how sometimes they say 'less is more,'" notes Berry, "that's what Stars and Satellites is about."

Trampled by Turtles is Dave Simonett, Tim Saxhaug (bass, vocals), Dave Carroll (banjo, vocals), Erik Berry and Ryan Young (fiddle). Within the contained music scene of Duluth, the members of the band did their own time in punk and rock bands, brandishing their electricity proudly before switching to acoustic instruments. While they never set out to be a "bluegrass" band, Trampled by Turtles employs many of the same traditional techniques of the genre, but their differences in influences, attitude and attack make for their unique sound.
