Juturna is the Roman goddess of fountains, wells and springs. It was taken as the album title to symbolize a new beginning for the band members. It was originally the title of an unreleased song from an early demo of "The Great Golden Baby". The album artwork is by Esao Andrews.
There is a hidden track, known as "House of Leaves", located at exactly 8:56, after the silence that follows "Meet Me in Montauk". After 'Juturna' leaked in late March 2005, fans on the Circa Survive Message Board (Circa Board) inquired about the title of the song. Guitarist Brendan Ekstrom responded, " 'Paranoid Flu' or 'House of Leaves' or 'I completely forget what we called it.' or 'Blues'." Fans on the Circa Board took to calling it "House of Leaves" and it stuck world wide. It is a reference to House of Leaves, a book by Mark Z. Danielewski. The song is said to be in the perspective of the main character in the novel, Johnny Truant.
The song "Stop the Fuckin' Car" had its name censored to "Stop the Car" on the track listing on the back of the CD case. However, it is listed as "Stop the Fuckin' Car" on the booklet inside the case.
"Suspending Disbelief", from The Inuit Sessions, was originally intended to be on Juturna.
