Boston, United States (2003 – 2008)

The Receiving End of Sirens was a five-piece band based out of Boston, Massachusetts, that is commonly referred to as TREOS for short. The band consisted of Alex Bars (Vocals/Guitar), Brendan Brown (Vocals/Bass Guitar), Nate Patterson (Guitar),Brian Southall(Guitar), and Andrew Cook (Drums). The band was formed in 2003.

Andrew came up with the name after hearing police sirens one day at work.

The band originally consisted of all of the above except for Brian, with ex-Fake ID singer Ben Potrykus as the Lead Vocalist and frontman of the band. Alex and Brendan were friends from high school who attended Northeastern University in Boston. There they met Andrew and they began to form a band. Old high school friend Nate, who was attending Southeastern University in Florida, relocated to Springfield, MA to join the band. Ben, who was in high school at the time, was recruited through the internet.

The band released two demos (a total of five songs) during this time period.

After some sort of conflict that may have involved the rest of the band’s willingness to look for a relatively large record label, Ben left TREOS to form The Lido Venice, a project. At this point, the band met Casey Crescenzo (originally from California) while working at Urban Outfitters and he joined the band.

    "The Earth..." is one of my belovest albums ever. It touches some strings in my soul i can't listen to without a few very-very strange feelings. So shame they have broken up.

    I really like TREOS, but I think The Dear Hunter is better.

    dont think the vocals are strong? strong as in what?... screaming? Disagree completely. vocal melodies are smart and pair well with every song, plus there's multiple vocal tracks per song..

    I keep seeing this band recommended as one that is similar but I've never been able to get into them [2] I don't think the vocals are very strong, I think that's my problem with them.
