Senses Fail Officially Comment On Cancelled Tour With We Came As Romans, Counterparts, & SeeYouSpaceCowboy

Senses Fail’s Buddy Nielsen has issued an official statement regarding the cancellation of the band’s tour with We Came As Romans, Counterparts, and SeeYouSpaceCowboy. The band scrapped the trek and took a different tour offer for later this year so the singer could spend more time with his family following the birth of his son.

Nielson said the following:

“We’re sorry to announce that we must cancel the Hell is in Bloom tour.

This was a very fast-moving situation, and it was our intention to notify all relevant promoters, bands, and personnel first before taking something to the public. Unfortunately, some information leaked, and news and rumors began to swirl. This is a tough situation, and we respect everyone’s anger and feelings towards the cancellation of the tour.

Before the initial announcement of the Hell is in Bloom tour, we were hit with a couple curveballs. Due to the pandemic and supply chain issues, we were told our record release needed to be delayed and moved from April to July. I also found out that my wife and I would be expecting our second child who would be here at the beginning of March.

Last week, we were presented with an opportunity to push back our touring schedule by taking another tour. As difficult of a situation it was, we came to our decision for the following reasons.

I would have more time to be at home with my family after the birth of our new son. The chance to be able to support my wife, my daughter and my newborn son is something that greatly influenced my decision to make this change. I do not make my decisions alone and when I discussed this with my family, my wife urged me to stay, and we both felt that given the options it would be the best course for our family.

Lastly, this new tour that will be announced very soon, is something that has us every excited. We felt this tour would be something new and exciting for our fans, and the opportunity to align our album release with being on the road to properly promote it just made sense.

We apologize to all the fans, bands and crew that were looking forward to this tour. In our twenty years as a band, we have only canceled one other tour that was on sale, it is something we take lightly and not something we have a history of doing.

All tickets and VIP packages will be available for refund at point of purchase. We appreciate your love and support and look forward to seeing you this summer or in the future.

– Buddy“

This news comes after Counterparts previously called out Senses Fail for screwing over the other bands by taking a better tour offer.

Senses Fail Share Thoreau’s Remix Of “Lush Rimbaugh”

Senses Fail have shared Thoreau’s remix of their song “Lush Rimbaugh.” This news comes after the band previously announced that their new album, “Hell Is In Your Head,“ will be released on July 15.

Buddy Nielsen commented:

“I got a chance to meet and work with [Thoreau], and we collaborated on some really incredible music. I was very excited to hear him use his Lo-Fi skills in order to bring a different vibe to Senses Fail songs. I see a very bright future for him and all his projects.”

Thoreau added:

“‘Lush Rimbaugh‘ is one of my favorite tracks from Senses Fail. I heard this one on my way over to meet Buddy for the first time. Typically I take things in a more chill direction… but for this one, I tried to keep the same amazing energy that the original had. Thanks to the team for letting me play a part!”

Senses Fail Premiere “I’m Sorry I’m Leaving” Music Video

Senses Fail have premiered a new video for their new song “I’m Sorry I’m Leaving.” This track is from their new album “Hell Is In Your Head,” which will be released on July 15.

Buddy Nielsen said the following about the song:

“I wrote this song about the constant struggling with making music and art as a living. I am constantly waiting for it to all fail and disappear even 20 years into a career. At no point do I ever feel safe. After having a child, the relationship with this lifestyle became more strained. Having to leave home and lose time with your child while also hoping that what you do continues to support your family and remains fulfilling is complicated. Continuing to improve and remove my own trauma in order to be a better father is the bases and goal of the song.”

He also added the following about the album:

“The band has now become me and vice-versa. I’m trying to put myself on the map as a songwriter and as a complete musician, not just as a lyricist or the singer. This is where I had been planning to get to over the last three records. As a touring entity we are still five people, but when it comes down to the writing, it’s a solo vision as far as where I want to take it.”

Nielsen went on to say that five tracks on the record are inspired by T.S. Eliot‘s “The Waste Land.“ He also added the following about its concept:

“What’s the answer to the inevitable trap of the fact that you’re going to die? This record attempts to go to the dark place of ‘What is it that we’re so afraid of death?’ We’re afraid of death because of grief. Are we truly afraid of death because of death? Through my own therapy, I’ve learned you don’t even really have a clear understanding of death because it’s unknowable. And since you literally can’t die and come back, I tried to place the record in a much darker fictional place to help talk about those unanswerable questions.”

Senses Fail Premiere Music Video For New Song “Death By Water” Featuring Ice Nine Kills’ Spencer Charnas

Senses Fail have released a new song titled “Death By Water.” This track features Ice Nine Kills’ Spencer Charnas and an official video for it can be found below:

Senses Fail’s Buddy Nielsen commented:

“The song is named after a section of the poem Wasteland by T.S. Elliot and pulls references from the section. Personally, it is about the struggle of entering the dark night of the soul with regard to becoming a father. In many traditions, there is anecdote and mythology pertaining to the journey of ego death or death and rebirth of a certain time in one’s life. When you become a parent your single self dies and you become eternally linked to life, there is a letting go of the person you once were to become a parent. There was a level of loss I felt having to let go of who I was previously and step into a role that I didn’t feel fully comfortable in. I was blindly jumping into the unknown and this is what this song talks about. Death by water can have the inverse motif of birth and cleansing. When someone is baptized in Christianity they are reborn in the eye of God. I use the theme of death by water as a rebirth in the eye of “God”; God being my child, and me being reborn as their parent.

This song represents the descent into the underworld where I am to meet with the soul of my departed grandmother. The entrance into the underworld is always marked by a crossing of water or submersion into water and into a lower plane of existence. ‘Death By Water’ is specifically about the journey of my soul through the plane of existence into the underworld.”

Senses Fail To Stream “Still Searching” And “Let It Enfold You” Sets

Senses Fail will be streaming full album performances of “Let It Enfold You” and “Still Searching,” which they recorded at Joshua Tree. The “Still Searching” set was recorded at sunset and it will air on July 29. The “Let It Enfold You” set was recorded at sunrise and it will air on August 5.

Buddy Nielsen commented:

“Joshua Tree is tied to many significant life changing events for me and the band. I heard the news of my first child, was a witness and first responder to a horrific accident, received news of a new president and experienced life altering connections with nature and family.

As a human I have done my best to survive and to ultimately flourish, I see the desert of Joshua Tree as a similar example of desolate space that thrives. My internal narrative can sometimes be desolate but I have always found a way to grow and persist despite harsh conditions. The desert has shown me that life is both beautiful and tragic and that both of them must exist in each other’s arms to feel the full spectrum of what the universe has to offer. I can think of no better place to perform out two most popular and life changing records that deep in the heart go to the Joshua Trees and the shadows of the ancient rock formations.”

Tickets can be purchased HERE. Both performances will also be available on limited edition vinyl.
