I've been trying to get my hands on a Saraphine cd for going on a year now. Every time I think I've got one in the mail, it just never happens. Can anyone help me out? Please?

Hey everyone

Last Monday morning, Phil told me he no longer wanted to be a part
of Saraphine. Rather than finding a replacement, I decided it was in
the best interest of Saraphine to disband. All the members of the
band wish to thank YOU for the 4 years of support. We grew up as
musicians and as a band TOGETHER, and it was an extremely fun ride.
I would personally like the thank Phil for all the hard work he put
into the band that we created together. For me to show up at his
house with an acoustic guitar in July of 2000 and have it turn in to
this is amazing to me, and I am a better person for it. In addition
thanks to the entire Kosch family for all the support throughout the

But who wants to look to the past anyway? For those who are
intrested, two projects are set to thrive in the wake of Saraphine's

1. Empyrean --- www.empyreanweb.com
Phil has left Saraphine to join Empyrean and play guitar, which I
would assume makes Mike from Empyrean into a rock and roll front
man. Either or, if you are a fan of Saraphine or have talked to any
of us, you know Empyrean is one of our favortie bands and some of
our most trusted compadres in rock. Please support Phil in all his
future endevours w/ Empyrean. You can bitch at him a little bit tho!
Remind him how important Saraphine was to you ;) ha ha

2. New Project Brewing???
Myself, Chad, Mikey and Webb have have a lot of discussions
pertaining to where to take this thing. The one thing we agreed on
was that keeping the name Saraphine was outta the question since
Phil was such a big part to our success. I personally have been
writing songs with the guys as well as a gentleman named Mike Patti,
who was our vocal engineer and protools engineer for "Random Life".
If anyone knows me and my singing style, its him. We are all going
back to Chads to write and record, and sometime in the next month or
so, I will get back to you with more definates pertaining to lineups
and if/when we'll be playing shows again.

The Saraphine site is down, but the community is still thriving!
Keep up to date on Saraphine members by going to Saraphineonline.com
and clicking on the message board. If you guys want any videos, cds,
music, anything from me, EMAIL me.. ssweene1@hotmail.com

Thanks for the 4 years. As soon as I know more details about the new
project I will tell ya about it here on Saraphine Update. If you
want future updates on Empyrean, please go to empyreanweb.com and
sign up on their mailing list!

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at
ssweene1@hotmail.com -- I would love to hear from you all.

On behalf of Michael Kosch, Philip Kosch, Matthew Webb, Chad Grigic,
Matthew Wydra and Britanny Cotto I would like to thank you for the
last time! :)

With warmest regards
Scott Sweeney - Vocals

Hey everyone;

Just to kind of stop the rumors before they start spreading faster than wildfire, I want to to address the situation.

Saraphine is no longer a band as of today. We have been a band 4 years, and all the members of this band are taking time to evaluate what we are going to do as people, and as musicians.

We are all still writing music, so after the holidays we plan on getting back together and seeing what might happen.

That is all I know right now. Have a happy holiday season, and we will let you all know more as soon as we know. Please IM me at RckStrScott or PM me if you have any questions.

Saraphreaks Shopping Spree! [15 Oct 2004|11:41am]

[ mood | excited ]

This has been posted on the Saraphine messageboards, but I don't know if all of you read those, so I thought I'd leave a note here.

This Sunday, October 17, a bunch of Saraphine fans and friends are meeting downtown at the Michigan Ave entrance to Water Tower Place at 1:00pm to go...shopping! Mostly because we all miss each other, and because we love buying things. You and everyone you know are invited to join us.

If you plan to come, please comment so I know how many people to expect. If you need more information or want my cell phone number to help us connect up, leave a comment or IM me (pianorockprncess).

Can't wait to see you guys!!

How did you hear about Saraphine? This kid at my school promotes them all the time and gave me a cd with some of their songs on it.
Approximately how often do you see Saraphine live? I have yet to see them live yet because I am broke and don't own a car yet. :(
If Saraphine ruled the world, what would be different? Ha I dont know.
What other bands do you like? Fall Out Boy, The Academy is, Not Enough Gold, Gym Class Heroes, June, Spitalfield, Punchline, Bayside, and Taking Back Sunday

Rock the Boat [15 Jul 2004|02:46pm]

If you're bored and love Saraphine (and/or me), please do the following:

a) Go to http://www.icehouse.com/
b) Pretend to be 21 (change your year of birth if necessary)
c) Click the "Rock the Boat" poster on the lefthand side of the screen.
d) Click VOTE NOW
e) Search for Saraphine and click to view their profile
f) Vote for Saraphine! (be 21 again)
g) You can vote for them up to 3 times a day (per email address), and they make it easy...just keep clicking.

That's a lot of steps, but not really all that hard and it means a lot to the band (and me). So yeah, just if you feel like it. =) Even if you just do it one day, it'll help!

Naperville Riverwalk was funnn [11 Jul 2004|03:37am]

Hey everyone,

It was great seeing all of you who made it out to Riverwalk last week. Ludo was great, Saraphine was great, and even though it didn't rain very much, at least one person ended up very wet. Hmmm...

I don't have my pics yet (damn real film), but I thought I'd share this group picture courtesy of Monica's camera:

That isn't *everybody*, but it's as many people as we could realistically grab at the time.

Riverwalk tonight! [07 Jul 2004|10:35am]

In case you forgot, Saraphine is playing Riverwalk in Naperville tonight. The show will be at the Free Speech Pavilion on the Riverwalk, located at Jackson Ave. and Webster St. Saraphine is scheduled to play at 8pm...this is a FREE show, so come if you aren't busy!

I really want to get a group picture of everyone who's on the boards and in this community, if possible. So some of you are going to have to help me get people together for a few minutes...ha, like that'll ever work.

Hope to see everyone there!
