Prior to work on their first album "Sound Asleep", multi-instrumentalist Azelia Ng was added to the band and focused primarily on the synthesizer and violin. After three months of recording in a small Notre Dame dorm room, the band completed the album and released it to the general public. While bassist Alex Renfro studied abroad in Japan, songs continued to be composed by Wells, Ng, and Howard. With the advent of new songs came the desire to increase the variety of instrumentation.
As a result, Craig Borchard, formerly of Slap Bracelet Suicide, was asked to join the band. Around the same time, Claire Sloss became a member of Sans Katoi as a cellist. With the rotation set, Sans Katoi is set on recording their second album to be released in early 2008. In more recent news, riffs among band members has been reported. New member Sloss has been rumored to have hit rock bottom, checking herself into a local drug rehabilitation program.
At the same time, her friend and band member Azelia Ng has followed in Sloss' footsteps by becoming addicted to heroine along with her various sexual addictions. Howard was recently kicked off the national champion Notre Dame fencing team for stabbing an opponent in the face. Renfro has been reportedly arrested by Japanese officials are charged with war crimes. Borchard, who is also overseas in London, is being targeted by the FBI for apparent involvement with a child pornography ring.
Wells, who is considered to be the most attractive and intelligent member of Sans Katoi, recently had a lapse of judgment when he was cited for indecent exposure at a local soccer game. All members have denied all accusations and refuse to comment. Nevertheless, they all claim that progress is being made on the new album.
