Cove Reber Leaves Saosin
Accoring to guitarist Beau Burchell, Saosin has parted ways with vocalist Cove Reber. After leaving their label recently, you have to wonder what this means for the band. Beau also confirmed that the guys are writing new material, so maybe we’re just looking at a change in direction. Whatever Saosin do will no doubt be interesting, they’re a talented bunch after all. It also takes a lot of guts to carry on after losing two fantastic vocalists (previous vocalist Anthony Green departed before the recording of the band’s self-titled debut album). Anyway, here is Beau’s statement in full:
“well, a few days ago, alex, justin, chris and I got back into the studio for our first group writing/jam session. We have all been writing things on our own, but it was cool to get into a room and play with loud ass amps all together again. I am very excited about this record, for a few different reasons.
1. I have been so busy producing and mixing bands lately, and I love it. Finally getting back in the swing of things, so it will be a miracle if I can rip myself away from other projects long enough to finish a saosin record.
2. We have no label, which means we can do whatever we want. We don’t have to worry about outputting garbage singles that none of us believe in, or selling records. its going to be nice.. just like the days of ttn.
3. NOT having a camera on me the whole time.
4. After 5 years with cove, we have decided to part ways. So it will be a new experience for us, not knowing what to expect in the vocal dept, who will replace him, or if we will even find a replacement this century.
thats all for now…”
