Senses Fail Debuts New Single "Family Tradition"

Senses Fail posted their new single, “Family Tradition,” on MySpace. The track is from the New Jersey-based quintet’s forthcoming full-length, Life Is Not A Waiting Room (October 7, Vagrant). “Family Tradition” will be available at all digital retailers on August 26. ITunes will be offering an exclusive bundle featuring “Family Tradition,” “Wolves At The Door” (which is currently featured on the best-selling Madden NFL ’09 game soundtrack), “Life Is Not A Waiting Room” (a brand new b-side), plus a fourth track that features snippets of all the songs on the new album.

“Family Tradition” is named after a Hank Williams, Jr., song,” said singer James “Buddy” Nielsen. “I find myself at times doing things to live up to other peoples expectations or cutting myself down because I assume that will make me look more humble to the world, so this song is one part a reaction to that and also about following the footsteps of a family member you don't really know but who has had a huge influence on you.”

Life Is Not A Waiting Room is the group’s third full-length and follow up to 2006’s Still Searching and was produced by Brian McTernan (Hot Water Music, Thrice) at his Salad Days studio in Baltimore, MD. The band will be embarking on a headlining tour beginning October 8 in Richmond, VA and wrapping up with a hometown show just before Thanksgiving at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ.

Senses Fail formed six years ago and released their debut EP, From the Depths of Dreams, in 2002. 2004’s Let It Enfold You was followed by Still Searching, which debuted at #15 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Senses Fail has performed multiple worldwide tours and their catalog sales have reached over 850,000.

Senses Fail is: James “Buddy” Nielsen (vocals), Garrett Zablocki (guitar), Heath Saraceno (guitar), Dan Trapp (drums) and Jason Black (bass).
