Senses Fail New Acoustic EP, ‘In Your Absence’

Post-hardcore veterans Senses Fail have premiered their new video for  'In Your Absence'. The track is taken off the upcoming acoustic EP of the same name, on sale March 3 via Pure Noise Records.

'This is our first stab at an acoustic record, coming off our last record being so heavy we thought it might be fun to try the opposite. I have to say that it was very fun to write these songs and I think they came out great. They are loosely about my wife’s battle with Multiple Sclerosis and the thought of losing her prematurely.' - Buddy Nielsen

For the last 15 years, Senses Fail has been one of post-hardcore’s most celebrated and influential bands. They’ve released 6 studio albums, including their latest Pull The Thorns From Your Heart, that have a shared common thread of outspoken political and social commentary that have brought attention to important issues such as equality and human rights. The band’s breakout record Still Searching is considered to be a crucial album among post-hardcore fans and marked a turning point for the band’s sound blending the band’s signature aggressive sound with a newfound emotional sensibility.

In addition to releasing a new EP, Senses Fail will also be celebrating their 15th anniversary as a band with a headlining North American tour that kicks off in March. The band will be performing their critically acclaimed 2006 album, Still Searching, in its entirety along with other fan favourites from the last decade and a half to round out the set.

In Your Absence Track List:

1.     Jets to Peru

Naoise Roo & Hvmmingbyrd Play The Music Library

Naoise Roo and Hvmmingbyrd play an intimate show in the Music Library, Dublin this April. As part of the Musictown Festival the two bands will appear in the ILAC Centre Library, each playing a set and taking part in an audience Q&A hosted by Musos’ Guides own Marky Edison.

The all-ages event is the second of its kind. Last year, Mongrel State and Kicking Bird (pictured) played a rousing set in the library’s activity room. There’s an educational aspect to the show as audience members can quiz these professional musicians on their experience in the music industry. The candor and insight of last year’s bands gave a new insight into what it means to be a musician in modern day Ireland.

The event, entitled Music In Motion, will take place in the Music Library, Central Library, ILAC Centre on Saturday 8th April from 2.30 – 4.30 pm. As always with Dublin City Public Libraries, it’s free in but booking is essential. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
