While on the Vans Warped Tour’s final cross-country run, Senses Fail decided to incorporate a covers medley, featuring System Of A Down‘s “Chop Suey!“, Drowning Pool‘s “Bodies“, Limp Bizkit‘s “Break Stuff” and Rage Against The Machine‘s “Bulls On Parade“, into their set and during the Tampa, FL date Twiztid got in on the fun. You can see footage of that below:
Senses Fail have shared a new two part documentary via Billboard. The film focuses on the band’s latest album “If There Is Light, It Will Find You“ and the hardships leading up to it, including the complications Buddy Nielsen‘s wife, who has Multiple sclerosis, had while being pregnant with their daughter. Nielsen commented:
“Most of the record reflects on what it was like to deal with the complications associated with my wife’s birth. We were fortunate to have our friend there to document the birthing process and show what a natural birth can be like. One of the most important things in this small documentary is to counter the idea portrayed in the movies of how birth works. Even with the complications that we had the process was beautiful and intimate and some of the most connected times I’ve had as a human. We are happy to share our experience in birth and music and invite the world in to see how art and life are made.”

Senses Fail have premiered a new song titled “New Jersey Makes, The World Takes,” via Alternative Press. This track is from the band’s new album “If There Is Light, It Will Find You,” which will be released on February 16.
Buddy Nielsen said the following:
“Over the years, I have lost a number of friends to drug addiction. This song addresses those losses and how I have tried to intervene in people’s addictions over the years. As someone who has battled addiction, I know that the change has to come from within.
While support and resources are very important, it is ultimately a decision that is on the person who is battling. So many of us in this country have a friend or loved one who has lost their battle, and I thought it was important to highlight that struggle.”
Senses Fail will release their new album “If There Is Light, It Will Find You” on February 16, and to celebrate they will be hosting a special album release party at The Club at the Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs on February 11. It will feature a listening party, as well as a live acoustic set.
Senses Fail have premiered a new video for their new song “Gold Jacket, Green Jacket,” via Loudwire. This track is from the band’s new album “If There Is Light, It Will Find You,” which will be released on February 16.
Buddy Nielsen said the following:
“The inspiration for this video is ‘Falling Down‘ meets the clown sing-along part in ‘Billy Madison‘. The idea was to basically have people coming at me for various reasons but I am able to stave them all off and have them join in on the fun with a glitter bomb. Nothing makes a bad time more fun than a little glitter. Overall I just wanted to have a video that was fun and left you feeling good about the world and life.”
Drummer Chris Hornbrook has exited Senses Fail. He issued the following statement:
“So after close to three and a half years of working with Senses Fail my time has came to move on with the next chapter in my life. I’m very grateful for the time spent with band and crew traveling the world and playing music. I’ve gain a lot of insight touring with SF that I’ve realized recently reflecting back is pretty paramount. Anyway, I want to thank Buddy and company for everything and wish them the best of luck with finding a new drummer. I’m sure whomever they get will kick ass. ❤️”
