Saosin‘s new album with original vocalist, Anthony Green, is quickly becoming more of a reality for fans. Today, the band released a teaser for the as-yet-untitled third full-length, their first in seven years (heh) following 2009’s In Search of Solid Ground. It’s their first with Anthony Green at the helm since 2003’s beloved, debut EP, Translating The Name.
If the 30-second clip is any indication of what we can expect from the effort as a whole, I think it’s safe to say that this highly anticipated album (and studio reunion with Green) will have been well worth the wait. No street date for the album has been unveiled yet, but it’s expected sometime this Spring via the band’s new label home at Epitaph Records. The release will be Saosin’s first without original guitarist Justin Shekoski, who has since replaced Quinn Allman in The Used.
“Making this record was such a sentimental thing for me,” Green confesses. “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.”
On their newly formed union with Epitaph and reunion with Green, bassist Chris Sorenson adds, “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.”
Saosin will be on tour for a brief string of dates in March. All dates and ticket links are available below, where you can also stream the teaser featuring a new song clip.
