American post-hardcore crew Saosin have parted ways with vocalist Cove Reber. Cove joined the band in 2004, aged 19. However, on 22nd July, guitarist Beau Burchell posted the following on the band's message board:
"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"
Cove was the band's second vocalist, replacing Anthony Green in 2004. The circumstances surrounding Cove's departure are not yet known.
