Stream Saosin’s new album on Spotify

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.

Saosin debut ‘Control and the Urge to Pray’

In the last month or so, Saosin has not only confirmed the upcoming release of a new album, but also has given their fans two new tracks from it. On Wednesday (April 27), the California-base band debuted another new track from the impending album. “Control and the Urge to Pray” premiered exclusively on Billboard earlier in the say. The new clip, very much like “Racing Toward a Red Light” and lead single “The Silver String,” has the band performing in what appear to be a rehearsal space. Most of us can assume it’s the newly reunited band rehearing before they head out on tour this summer.

“This was a song that we knew we had to see through,” bassist Chris Sorenson told Billboard. “The demo started off very differently and we were unsure if it would fit into the way the record was shaping. But once vocals were demoed and a few things were moved around we knew that it was something very powerful.” Check out the music video for “Control and the Urge to Pray” below.

“Control and the Urge to Pray” will join “Racing Toward a Red Light” and “The Silver String” on the band’s upcoming new album, Along the Shadow. Along the Shadow is set to be released on May 20 through Epitaph Records and is the follow-up to 2009’s In Search of Solid Ground.

It’s been almost a month since Saosin not only announced the release of their much-anticipated new album, but also blessed fans with a brand new song. On Wednesday (April 6), the California-founded band debuted another song from Along the Shadow. In conjunction with Noisey, Saosin released the music video for “Racing Toward a Red Light.” though the music video is very similar to the one released for lead single “The Silver String,” it doesn’t take away from the fact that we’ve gotten another new song form the band so soon.

Check out the video for “Racing Toward a Red Light” below while an interview with vocalist Anthony Green is available on Noisey‘s website.

“Racing Toward a Red Light” will join “The Silver String” on Saosin’s upcoming new album, Along the Shadow. Along the Shadow is set to be released on through Epitaph Records. Pre-orders for the new album are currently available here.

In support of the album’s release, Saosin will be hitting the road once again this summer for the newly resurrected Taste of Chaos. The group’s stint on the traveling rock show will being on June 24 at Bayfront Park in our hometown of Miami and wrap up on July 16 at the San Manuel Amphitheater Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, CA.

Saosin release new video, announce new album

When Saosin announced in early February that they would be releasing a new album some time this year, we didn’t expect it to be so soon. On Wednesday (March 16), the California-based band announced that they will be releasing their highly anticipated third album on May 20. The new record will be titled Along the Shadow is the group’s first set of new songs in over six years. The new album also marks the group’s first record to be released through Epitaph Records which they signed to back in February.

While the CD and digital version of the new album will be available in May, those who want to buy the record on vinyl will have to wait a little longer. The vinyl version of Along the Shadow is set to be released on June 17. Pre-orders for the album (CD, digital, or vinyl) are currently available on the band’s website.

In addition to the new album title and official release date, the band is currently streaming the first single off of the record; a track titled “The Silver String.” The four-minute long clips can be streamed below.

With the band being formed in 2003, it’s hard to believe that Along the Shadow is the band’s first full-length album to feature original vocalist, Anthony Green. During his time in the band, Saosin only released one EP; Translating the Name. After his departure, the band enlisted Cove Reber and Green went on to form Circa Survive.

When Green left the group in 2004, there seemed to be a lot of issues that prompted his departure. But now it looks like all the old wounds have healed because we have a full-length record on the way, a full tour currently in progress, and a special appearance on the recently resurrected Taste of Chaos tour.

Along the Shadow is the follow-up to 2009’s In Search of Solid Ground.
