Band page created in 2005.
Senses Fail is a New Jersey, United States based band. They are influenced by many spiritual beliefs, which manifest themselves in their lyrics and musical themes.
They released their first EP, From The Depths Of Dreams, on August 12, 2002 on ECA Records, followed by a re-release on April 29, 2003 on Drive-Thru Records. Their first proper album, Let It Enfold You, was released on September 7, 2004 on Vagrant Records. It too was re-released with five bonus tracks, including three acoustic versions of songs on Let It Enfold You.
On November 13, 2007, Senses Fail released a deluxe version of Still Searching, which featured new art, behind-the-scenes DVD featuring footage from the band's headlining tour last fall, two additional previously digital-only songs, three new songs, and a cover of The Cranberries's song 'Salvation'.
The band was started by James (a.k.a. Buddy) Nielsen in 2001. After Garrett Zablocki responded to an ad posted by Nielsen on an internet message board, Dave Miller and Dan Trapp found their way into the band as well. Mike Glita, the ex-bassist for Tokyo Rose, was also welcomed into the band soon afterwards.
Early in 2006, Dave Miller left the band. He now manages a small, pop punk New Jersey band called Jet Lag Gemini. Currently playing guitar in his place is Heath Saraceno of Midtown.
On December 8th, 2007, Senses Fail's bassist Mike Glita left the band to pursue his side project (Knights in Paris). He has announced, on myspace, that he will join the band Vampire for Hire, now known as Love Automatic, and continue to pursue the side project.
On October 12, 2008, they released Life Is Not A Waiting Room.
The band began recording their new album, titled The Fire, at Salad Days Studio with Brian McTernan in June 2010 hoping to release later that year. The Fire was released in the UK on October 25, 2010 through Hassle Records and elsewhere on October 26 through Vagrant Records
In February 2011, Guitarist Garrett Zablocki left the band to attend college, however he will be composing music for various films and videos. He has now been replaced with Matt Smith.
