Boston's the Receiving End of Sirens preferred the first-name-only approach. In 2003 Alex, Andrew, Brendan, Casey, and Nate put out a self-released, self-titled EP that defined their approach to the post-hardcore/emo axis.
Triple Crown Records noticed, and signed the band up. Their full-length debut, Between the Heart and the Synapse, appeared in April 2005, and TREOS enjoyed comparisons to contemporaries like Thrice
, Mae, and Emery. Much touring ensued and, by the fall of 2006, the guys welcomed Brian (aka the Otter) into the Siren mix in place of a departed Casey, who left to pursue his side project the Dear Hunter
. With the new lineup firmly in place, the group recorded and released their second album with Triple Crown, The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi, in 2007. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi
