From the very beginning Saosin had their share of setbacks with the release of their debut self-titled album on Capitol Records, leaving fans foaming at the mouth in anticipation for it. With that kind of pressure, you better hope that you’re going to deliver the goods, and deliver they did. Fans and critics alike were not able to find much not to like about the album from beginning to end.
The main thing that jumps out from song to song is the level of musicianship involved. This is not just a band, this is a band of stand-out musicians who are great at what they do individually, so when they get together the synergy is unparalleled. The amazing dual guitar work of Beau Burchell and Justin Shekoski frame each song with the help of rhythm section of Alex Rodriguez on drums and Chris Sorenson on bass. Frontman Cove Reber has been hard-pressed to prove himself to a tough audience and he welcomes the challenge rocking the stage night after night. With his powerful harmonies and his ability to send songs directly from his lips to your gut, this band is a complete force.
This is not a band destined to talk about the past though, this is a band hungry to pave their future. Hot off the news that they would be joining Projekt Revolution, the biggest rock tour of the summer, lead singer and co-songwriter Cove Reber took some time out of Saosin’s busy touring schedule to catch up with us on his day off in the UK…
