Senses Fail have finished recording their 8th full-length album

Senses Fail are certainly one of the vanguards of the early-2000’s post-hardcore scene. While maybe not quite achieving the commercial success of some of their peers, the band have nonetheless managed to carve out a more than respectable career for themselves. Especially considering how many of their peers have gone their separate ways.

The band’s last full-length, If There Is Light…, was released in early 2018 – and the band has been hard at work on new music. Could it be time for a new record from the band? Well, yes!

Bite To Break Skin: Senses Fail’s ‘Let It Enfold You’ is certified Gold by the RIAA

Upon its release in 2004, Senses Fail’s Let It Enfold You immediately put the post-hardcore/pop-punk band on the map, with a number of sizable tours surrounding it. Given the band has played the record in full before, it’s no surprise the album was also successful – singles like “Bite To Break Skin” and “Lady In A Blue Dress” are quite popular (and catchy) for a reason. In fact, both those singles – and “Buried A Lie” as well – all clock in at a combined almost 30 million Spotify streams.

It should be little surprise, then, that the record has now reached a major milestone – being certified Gold by the RIAA.

Senses Fail teases new music and return to early sound, claims it’s “reminiscent of Your Favorite Weapon-era Brand New”

With 6 full-length albums under their belt and a new EP released this year (In Your Absence), Senses Fail represents a band that is flexible and adaptable to change. They’ve aged shockingly well over the years, too, arguably releasing their best work with 2013’s hardcore-oriented Renacer.

Given the success of the band playing anniversary tours for Still Searching and Let It Enfold You, though, there is clearly a strong grip on those early nostalgic albums. And why not? They’re cornerstones of mid-2000’s post-hardcore/pop-punk.

That being said, it’s been wondered exactly what the band’s upcoming 7th full-length sounds like. Will it veer more toward hardcore again? According to the band’s Facebook, it’s reminiscent of YFW-era Brand New – an album that was a massive influence on early SF material.

You can check out the studio footage below, and it seems that Buddy Nielsen is responding to some fan questions via FB comments – so you may want to ask some yourself.
