Senses Fail Announces Spring Headline Tour, New Guitarist

January 20, 2010 – SENSES FAIL announces the launch of a new headline tour this spring. The PMA Tour presented by etnies featuring Senses Fail with special guests The Ghost Inside*, Man Overboard, and Transit begins March 10 in Pennsylvania and hits secondary markets all across the US before wrapping up on April 10 in Rhode Island. The New Jersey-based group is touring in support of their fourth full-length, THE FIRE (10/26, Vagrant).

Pre-sale tickets go on sale tomorrow at 3pm Eastern at Tickets go on sale to the general public at 12pm (noon) local time on Thursday, January 27.

The band also announces the departure of original guitarist Garrett Zablocki. Singer Buddy Nielsen comments: “Unfortunately Garrett has decided to leave Senses Fail after almost ten years. We are sad to see him go but wish him luck in whatever he plans to do in the future. We will of course continue on as a band touring and making music. We are excited to say that Matt Smith from Strike Anywhere will be stepping up to fill Garrett’s role and we’re very excited to start working on new music as soon as possible.”

Garrett Zablocki issued the following statement: “After nearly a decade of being a founder and member of Senses Fail, I've decided leave the band to attend college full time. I will still be playing music on the side, but I will no longer be doing it full time. I never thought playing guitar and writing songs in my basement would bring us to stages around the world, five albums recorded and experiences that I wouldn't have had otherwise. The stories I can tell over a beer with a friend are endless because of what we accomplished through the years. I wish Buddy, Dan (Trapp) and Jason (Black) the best of luck as they continue Senses Fail on into the future."

SENSES FAIL Cross The Pond For A Headlining UK Tour In February

(Dec. 7th, 2010)- New Jersey natives, Senses Fail, have just announced a headlining tour throughout the UK in February 2011. Having just returned from a co-headlining US tour with Bayside, the band is taking a small holiday break before venturing across the Atlantic to showcase new songs live for their UK fans. Frontman, Buddy Nielsen, comments, "We are very pleased and excited to be heading back over to the UK for our first ever full UK tour. Playing the new songs from The Fire has been great in the US and we're stoked to bring the new record overseas. We are looking forward to getting away from the bitter cold of NJ and into the tropical weather that is Great Britain in February. See you soon." 

The band's fourth full-length, The Fire, was released internationally in October 2010 and has since been receiving praise from the press with Big Cheese calling it 'a truly giant juggernaut of rock and post-hardcore', and Total Guitar hailing the album 'pop punk's long over-due evolution.'  Senses Fail will kick off their first UK tour since 2009 on February 16th and venture around the country for two full weeks.

Senses Fail Announces Limited Edition Bonus DVD, iTunes Bonus Track for The Fire

(September 9, 2010) – SENSES FAIL announce that the first pressing of their forthcoming fourth full-length, THE FIRE (10/26, Vagrant) will also contain a limited edition live concert film on DVD. The seven-camera HD shoot was filmed on October 31, 2009 when the NJ-based band headlined a hometown Halloween show at Starland Ballroom where they were joined by guitarist Heath Saraceno who had recently left the band. The DVD features over 90 minutes of live footage and interviews with the band and was directed by Adam Rothlein (My Chemical Romance, The Get Up Kids, Ben Folds). When the first pressing runs out, subsequent physical copies of the album will contain the CD only.

Senses Fail will also be adding a bonus track entitled “Ghost Town” to the iTunes digital version of The Fire that will not be available on any physical copies.

“We never got to have a proper goodbye for Heath and his last show was very unceremonious, so it was great to have him back for this show and on this DVD,” said singer Buddy Nielsen. “This is our first live DVD and I think we did a killer job. I think everyone will like the song selection.”

Senses Fail and Bayside recently announced co-headlining dates for the Atticus Black Presents: Out With The In Crowd Tour that begins October 19 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and includes stops across the U.S. and Canada. Click HERE for all the dates.

I'm so proud of the work we have done and so proud of the job that Brian McTernan did in navigating the process.”

Senses Fail Announce New Album

Senses Fail has returned to producer Brian McTernan’s Salad Days studio outside Baltimore, Maryland this week to begin recording their fourth full-length album. The disc is expected to be released this fall.

“We're very excited to be back in the studio and working on our new record which is going to be titled The Fire,” said singer Buddy Nielsen. “The direction of the music is still developing but we have about 17 solid songs and based upon which ones turn out the best in the studio, they’ll determine the overall vibe of the record. This record is a reaction and a release of a whirlwind of emotions that came from fighting for what we love and dealing with change and growth both personally and creatively.”

The Ridgewood, New Jersey-based band includes Nielsen, guitarist Garrett Zablocki, drummer Dan Trapp, bassist Jason Black and new guitarist Zack Roach. The new album follows up their 2008 release, Life is Not a Waiting Room, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart and #18 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
