Saosin have announced they have reunited with original front man Anthony Green and will release a new album on Epitaph this year. This will be the first new Saosin music with Green since 2003.
Green explains, "Making this record was such a sentimental thing for me. You can literally hear us making amends with each other while lamenting on our experiences together. It was very healing and cathartic, and might be the heaviest thing I've been a part of since the first EP. Epitaph is a perfect fit for this band."
Saosin formed and released their first EP, Translating the Name, in 2003. Green parted ways with the band after they signed with a major label, and vocalist Cove Reber stepped in as front man. The band went on to release two major label albums without Green, Saosin (Capitol, 2006) and In Search of Solid Ground (Virgin, 2009). Green has been a part of the band Circa Survive since leaving Saosin.
Chris Sorenson, Saosin bassist, explains, "We have known Brett Gurewitz/Epitaph was interested since our second show in 2003 but the timing wasn't right. I am stoked to see our almost 13-year courtship come full circle in 2016. We've been working on the idea of recording a new Saosin record with Anthony since 2010. It's great to be back, playing gigs and writing the music we never had the chance to write from the beginning."
In addition to writing and recording with Saosin, Green will perform with the band at all shows indefinitely.
