Known for his remarkable vocal range, Anthony Green is the original singer-songwriter of Saosin. He left the band in 2004 to form Circa Survive, the only band he credits himself with being a part of. Green dubs his other artistic ventures, including the Sound of Animals Fighting, as "projects." Outside Circa Survive, Green decided to embark on a solo venture with backup support from close friends in the band Good Old War. The result was 2008's Avalon, a collection of songs he had been working on for nearly a decade.
