Seeker, regrouped in 2010 to celebrate the band’s anniversary. The

honed their craft while playing in several Philadelphia-area based
bands. The need to return to their roots was apparent. With a direction
and a sound that by now was inherent to each, Corners of Sanctuary
(C.O.S.) began writing and rehearsing all original material. On Friday,
March 30, 2012, C.O.S. released their six-track EP, Forgotten Hero.
