K, so sorry if this is a duplicate thread, but I searched and there wasn't another one ...so yeah. But then again, it could be my eyes spazzing after looking through 31 pages...Cheese So...yeah...they're AWESOME. GZA

Saosin is a post-hardcore band from Newport, California that formed in 2003. The current members: Cove Reber, Beau Burchell, Chris Sorenson, Justin Shekoski, and Alex Rodriguez. Former members: Anthony Green, Zach Kennedy, Pat McGrath. They have one EP (Translating The Name) and one full length album (Saosin).

Oh, and it's pronounced Say-ocean (At first I thought they got it wrong 'cause it's in Cantonese chinese, not Mandarin. If you said it in mandarin, it'd be Shiao-Shing. Lol.)
Story of the name:
"It’s a Chinese proverb from the 15th and 16th centuries. It means 'small heart'. Fathers used to marry off their youngest sons for money and used to tell them that they weren't marrying for love, that their wife doesn’t matter. She could die at any time so don't get attached. They had to love with caution and raise their sons to be cold and unfeeling as well. I found it in the 8th grade and loved it, I used to name all my old bands that and write songs about it." ~ Anthony Green (former lead vocalist)

I would say...that it's a good thing Anthony Green is no longer the vocalist. I saw him with Circa Survive and his voice was horrendous.

Saosin are okay though, I suppose. I would probably have to listen to more songs to make a proper judgement.

I saw them live with AFI and they were okay.
I met the singer too. Nice guy.

Their pretty blurry though.

If anyone subscribes to AP magazine, they're on the cover for May's issue.

Other stuff:
- They're supposed to be on the Projekt Revolution tour
- "You're Not Alone" is going to be the next single/video (Which is most likely going to make them huge on MTV 'n stuff Cheese )

And this is just plain gross.

I saw then at TOC last year and they was pretty good.
Saw there new video the other day and it's alright.
Have to hear more stuff before I decide whether I like them or not.
