Saosin is no stranger to touring. Their powerful stage presence has always been a perfect match for the high-energy of Warped Tour. However, this band’s first shot at Warped was sans their then frontman, Anthony Green. Green claimed to be homesick as well as displeased with the overall direction that band was heading in. He headed home and later to form the band Circa Survive. Saosin still hit Warped Tour with Phil sneed from Story of the Year filling in, but that was only a temporary fix before finally finding current lead singer, Cove Reber in a public audition.
Saosin has had great success since Reber joined the band. The band has since signed to Capitol Records and has had several great tours with bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Coheed & Cambria. They also toured with the popular Taste of Chaos Tour in both 2006 and 2007. While on this rigorous tour schedule, Saosin released their first full-length, self-titled album. With such constant touring, it only makes sense that the band released a live album in the spring of 2008. The band then went on one more tour with Armor for Sleep and The Bled before taking a six month break from the world of touring.
When Saosin returned to touring in October of 2008, it was with UnderOATH and The Devil Wear Prada. Saosin now finds themselves touring with these bands again on Warped 2009. Together, these three bands make up the crowd favorites at Warped. With all the extensive touring, Saosin puts on a show like the seasoned professionals they are
I caught these guys for their set in Venutra, CA and was nothing short of impressed. I got to the Hurley Stage long before their set time and the crowd was already massive! Saosin is definitely a crowd favorite on this year’s Warped Tour.
Saosin is on Warped Tour all summer! Do yourself a favor and be sure to check these guys out! Be sure to follow them on Twitter for all their updates on the road!
