The years of waiting have finally come to an end for Saosin fans. On Friday (May 20), the California-based band released their highly-anticipated new album, Along the Shadow. The new record not only marks the group’s first new studio album in seven years, but it also marks the reintroduction of original vocalist Anthony Green.
Over the past couple of years, the speculation/hopes of a reunion with the Circa Survive frontman had been something fans had wanted. After reuniting at Skate and Surf in 2014, the outcome was good with the band reuniting for a handful of shows and eventually a mini-tour which eventually gave way to Along the Shadow. For those who have yet to get your copy of the new record, the 11-track album (plus two bonus tracks), is currently available on Spotify. Last week, the band had allowed fans to listen to the new record in full via Pandora.
In addition to bonus tracks “Drinking From The Fountain” and “Along The Shadow Of Man,” the new record features previously released tracks “The Silver String,” “Racing Toward a Red Light,” and “Control and the Urge to Pray.”
In support of Along the Shadow, Saosin will be hitting the road this summer as one of the many bands to perform on the recently-resurrected Taste of Chaos. Tour dates for Taste of Chaos can be seen here. Along the Shadow is the follow-up to 2009’s In Search of Solid Ground.
