We officially started Sans Faith in Sept 05. The original line up was Artie on Vox, Emilio on Guitar/Backing Vox, Mike on Drums, and Clayton on Bass.
After a couple months we got Chris on 2nd guitar. Shortly after we started recording our demo EP and Dave from Uptown Creeper took over 2nd guitar. About half a year later Thubyrd(aka Svia Svenlava of The Sandworms) took over bass. We had a good run with Thubyrd, but a good while after had Gilbert (of Blackout Riot) take over bass.
I think there was a curse on us with bass players, but Clayton our original bassist helped us stay alive. We had some ups and downs here and there, but we never let it stop us from jamming. We had plenty of shows up until about the end of `07 and started to slow down a lot in `08...
Then Emilio told us he wasn't going to be able to play with us anymore, so we took a good little break around that time to find a new guitarist to take his spot. Luckily Rey bumped into us and tried out. He fit right in and we started to write the new Sans Faith songs we play today. Dont get me wrong, we still played the old songs too. We were/are still Sans Faith.
We stayed just practicing for a good 2 or 3 months, kept throwing our annual new years party! So we made sure we played at least once a year!! jk... and in the summer of `09 we were offered to be on a show with Fear, Agent Orange, DI, Total Chaos, and probably all the local punk bands in SA!
I guess you can say playing that show really kicked us in the ass and fired up our passion to keep Sans Fatih going, we ended up selling the most tix for that show and got to open for Agent Orange and FEAR! on the main stage. It was a real good feeling knowing we did it ourselves. Shortly after that show, Emilio joined us again on Bass. Curse lifted!
So here we are 2011 recording our 1st full length CD. Playing at least 1 time a month, and going at it full force. We hope to keep it up and surpass anything we have ever done each time a new obstacle or challenge comes to be....
We are Sans Faith... bitch
