LOS ANGELES, CAAfter creating a national buzz with their propulsive live show Orange County band Saosin will hit the road on a co-headline tour with Anberlin, featuring Acceptance, Codeseven and Terminal and has just been added to the final leg of the Vans Warped tour, starting July 20 in Indianapolis, IN. Soon after they’ll start recording their debut album for Capitol Records.

The band’s current line-up includes guitarists Beau Burchell and Justin Shekoski, both from Orange County, CA, vocalist Cover Reber, from Vista, CA, “Crowntown” (aka Corona, CA) bassist Chris Sorenson and drummer Alex Rodriguez, also from Southern California.

Saosin means “small heart” in Chinese. The word comes from a 15th century Chinese proverb about fathers telling their sons when marrying them off for money rather than romance, that they not get emotionally involved because their wives could die at any time.

It is an apt metaphor for the group, which recently changed its line-up after recording a debut EP for Death Do Us Part, the label started by Beau.

Saosin will embark on the co-headline tour with Anberlin, Acceptance, Codeseven and The Terminal, starting June 2 at Jack Rabbits in Jacksonville, FL and on Vans Warped Tour ’05 from July 20 through August 18. All dates can be found at The band will also perform July 2 at the Scene Pavilion in Cleveland with Story of the Year, Coheed & Cambria, The Academy Is and Acceptance, among others. They recently appeared on FUSE performing at the Bamboozle Festival in Asbury Park, NJ, on Steven’s Untitled Rock Show.
