Nothing Is What It Seems Without You

Saosin has been my foremost favorite band way back in 2007 since i'd first listened to 'Voices' . Well yeah i'm late at it 'cause Saosin first debuted in the year 2002 with Anthony Green as the frontman, but i had pretty much STUDIED almost everything about them since then. My guitar-ing had improved few scales wider since i started playing Saosin's. I started practising singing in uber high notes that at one point i remembered having only HOT drinks to quench my thirst, and it continued for weeks then months. Although i still couldn't pretty much sing the exact note like Cove Reber *current frontman* , the least is i can sing in higher notes than before. Err whatever. Saosin had inspired reasons for a lot of things in my life, their lyrics are super genius yet in a way still managed to be true, their music defies trends and their attitudes are the best!

Saosin was a quick bloomer. Upon having their first EP released, their fanbase grew so effing large in such a short period that they were noted as 'the band with the greatest DIY marketing strategy'. EP was so phenomenal that they were soon offered a recording contract with Capitol Records which shook the bandmates so hard that it caused Anthony Green to leave the band. But it was all good, no bad blood or etc. Anthony stated that it was too fast for him and he wasn't ready to leave his family behind for this and so he left in the year 2003. The empty post was later taken in the same year 2003 by Cove Reber who was only 19 when he started for Saosin! He went from a complete no-one to the one with a promising future!

i had always been envying Jakarta because it was amongst the earliest land on Asia to ever have Saosin to perform. I had been counting hours and days that they might plan even maybe a mini show in Malaysia since their first show in Asia. Well my wait ended on the 2nd of February 2010 :) . The show was epic.

It worths the wait. It worths the comments i'd left on their Myspace. It worths the classes i'd skipped. It worths 2 days of no sleep. It worths the beloved guitar that i'd sold. It worths the songs i wrote. It worths reading their discography and Wikipedia entry. It worths viewing every video of them on YouTube. It was worth every single ounce of it ;')

main reason for this entry?
It is official, that Cove Reber had left the band ;'( . I am sooo superbly depressed
