Most Anticipated of 2015: #6 Saosin Reboot

saosin_2014

Last year saw the return of a few of our beloved bands, but perhaps none was more surprising than that of Saosin. The band announced an appearance at Skate & Surf Festival early last year with original vocalist Anthony Green. What followed were a few scattered performances and the hint of new music on the horizon.

Of course, Saosin fans are well accustomed to these sorts of promises. After going radio silent sometime in 2010, irregular rumblings would surface, teasing the idea of a new album or a new lead singer to replace the exiled Cove Reber. For many, a reunion with Green and another album was a laughable notion. But here we are.

The band played a few new songs they had written to round out their setlist at shows throughout the year, so it’s obvious that they’ve at least penned a few new tracks together. However, Green still resides full time in experimental post rock act Circa Survive, which just released a new album, and has made clear that Circa is his first priority.

Nevertheless, the band has already announced some new dates for early 2015 and Green has made clear his desire to explore the post-hardcore sound further with the guys in Saosin. Whether time will allow such sessions remains to be seen. For now, fans of Saosin can at least dream about the possibility.

Green’s original parting with the band was not a pretty one. The fact that the group has reconciled and seems excited to share the stage together seems almost like a small miracle. With a renewed sense of vigor and friendship, who knows what possibilities lie ahead. Whatever happens, it’s certainly better than more silence.
