For the recording, the band was comprised of vocalist Anthony Green, drummerPat McGrath, guitarist/vocalist Justin Shekoski (ex-As Hope Dies), and former Open Hand members bassist Zach Kennedy andguitarist/vocalist Beau Burchell.

California-based Saosin burst onto the post-hardcore scene in March 2003 with their explosive screamo-tinged debut EP,Translating the Name, on Death Do Us Part. For the recording, the band was comprised of vocalist Anthony Green, drummerPat McGrath, guitarist/vocalist Justin Shekoski (ex-As Hope Dies), and former Open Hand members bassist Zach Kennedy andguitarist/vocalist Beau Burchell. The band's name comes 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 had been enlisted solely to play drums on the album, Saosin weren't solidified until that Julywith the addition of permanent drummer Alex Rodriguez (also formerly of Open Hand).Come Close [CD/DVD] Even though Translating had been out since March, the band didn't make its on-stage debut until June.Their powerful live performance and heavy Internet presence were coupled with high praise for their EP (comparing them tothe emotional catharsis of Glassjaw), cultivating an impressive underground following. The guys hit the road nationwide thatsummer with Boys Night Out and Anatomy of a Ghost. Green parted ways with the band in February 2004 for personalreasons, later going on to front the emo/post-hardcore outfit Circa Survive. The other bandmembers pressed on without him,however, and though they had yet to find a permanent replacement, stayed true to their Warped Tour obligation with Storyof the Year's Phil Sneed taking the mike. By the summer's end, Cove Reber had become the band's new singer. Saosin spenttime on winter's Taste of Chaos tour before hooking up with Capitol Records in March 2005. After numerous compilationappearances, a self-titled EP of demos and live cuts appeared that August; summer was spent on co-headlining dates withAnberlin. Saosin continued work on their eponymous full-length debut with Howard Benson, finally releasing the long-awaiteddisc in September 2006. Plenty of touring followed well into the next year, including dates with bands like Senses Fail,Bleeding Through, A Static Lullaby, and Poison the Well. In March 2008, Saosin released Come Close, a live CD/DVD. The bandtoured relenetlessly playing festivals and headline gigs throughout 2007 and 2008. Despite their touring schedule, theymanaged to record and complete In Search of Solid Ground, their proper sophomore full-length effort, and release it inSeptember of 2009. « hide
