You can listen to demo tracks from the band on their MySpace page.
SYMPHONY IN PERIL are sad to announce the decision to disband the band. They have left the following message:
"After almost four years, two full length recordings, and many shows, we as SYMPHONY IN PERIL have decided to call it quits. This was a completely mutual decision between all members, and we are still the best of friends. We would like to thank John for helping us out this past summer so we didn't have to cancel any shows. We apologize to all of those that wanted to see us but never got a chance to. However, we will be playing four final shows, and best of all, Shawn will be there with us taking over the vocal duties. We would like to thank all the bands we got a chance to share a stage with...but most of all, we thank our fans. A huge debt of gratitude goes out to all of you for your unrelenting support throughout this journey.
Thank you to anyone who let us sleep on their floor, or supported us in any other way, whether it be purchasing merch, or just sending an email out to us. We couldn't ask for better fans, and our sincerest thanks goes out to all of you."

Symphony In Peril vocalist Shawn Jonas has quit the band. Here's a portion of a statement released by Jonas:
"After months of decision-making and prayer, I have decided to step down as the singer of Symphony In Peril. My life is very complicated with being a father, a husband, a band mate, and a full-time employee. I guess I am in a place in my life where it is time to settle down and focus on my family and career. I have been so blessed by the overwhelming support I have received since I have been back involved in music... Unlike other bands, during my departure we were on great terms and still are. There was no falling out or arguments over creative differences."
A replacement vocalist will be announced in the very near future.
Symphony In Peril, the the esoteric hardcore outfit formed by former Zao singer Shawn Jonas, have slated "The Whore's Trophy" as the title of their upcoming album to be released in Spring 2005. This title is based off of Revelation Chapter 17. "The Whore's Trophy" will be recorded in October / November at Trax East Studio with Eric Rachel (Skid Row, Misfits, Dillinger Escape Plan, Scarlet) in October and the artwork and design will be handled by Asterik Design.
