California-based Saosin burst onto the post-hardcorescene in March 2003 with their explosive screamo-tingeddebut EP,Translating the Name, on Death Do Us Part. Forthe recording, the band was comprised of vocalistAnthony Green, drummerPat McGrath, guitarist/vocalistJustin Shekoski (ex-As Hope Dies), and former OpenHand members bassist Zach Kennedyandguitarist/vocalist Beau Burchell. The band's namecomes from a Chinese proverb that means "small heart,"as in lovecautiously. Shortly after the EP's completion,Kennedy exited (going on to join Ashlee Simpson's band)to be replaced by ChrisSorenson, and since McGrath hadbeen enlisted solely to play drums on the album, Saosinweren't solidified until that Julywith the addition ofpermanent drummer Alex Rodriguez (also formerly ofOpen Hand).Come Close [CD/DVD] Even thoughTranslating had been out since March, the band didn'tmake its on-stage debut until June.Their powerful liveperformance and heavy Internet presence were coupledwith high praise for their EP (comparing them totheemotional catharsis of Glassjaw), cultivating animpressive underground following. The guys hit the roadnationwide thatsummer with Boys Night Out andAnatomy of a Ghost. Green parted ways with the band inFebruary 2004 for personalreasons, later going on tofront the emo/post-hardcore outfit Circa Survive. Theother bandmembers pressed on without him,however,and though they had yet to find a permanentreplacement, stayed true to their Warped Tour obligationwith Storyof the Year's Phil Sneed taking the mike. By thesummer's end, Cove Reber had become the band's newsinger. Saosin spenttime on winter's Taste of Chaos tourbefore hooking up with Capitol Records in March 2005.After numerous compilationappearances, a self-titled EPof demos and live cuts appeared that August; summerwas spent on co-headlining dates withAnberlin. Saosincontinued work on their eponymous full-length debutwith Howard Benson, finally releasing the long-awaiteddisc in September 2006. Plenty of touringfollowed well into the next year, including dates withbands like Senses Fail,Bleeding Through, A Static Lullaby,and Poison the Well. In March 2008, Saosin releasedCome Close, a live CD/DVD. The bandtouredrelenetlessly playing festivals and headline gigsthroughout 2007 and 2008. Despite their touringschedule, theymanaged to record and complete InSearch of Solid Ground, their proper sophomore full. length effort, and release it inSeptember of 2009. « hide
