IN YOUR ABSENCE

New Jersey five-piece SENSES FAIL have released five-track EP IN YOUR ABSENCE via Pure Noise Records.

Featuring three brand new tracks as well as acoustic reworked versions of Lost and Found from seminal record Still Searching (which they are performing in full on their upcoming tour) and Family Tradition from Life is Not a Waiting RoomThe acoustic EP gives Buddy Neilsen’s vocals a crisp, refreshing sound in comparison to latest full length Pull the Thorns From Your Head.

“I’d starve and I’d freeze to death under stardust of your eyes” (Death Bed) is just one of the emotional lines Neilsen portrays beautifully. It is a blessing to be able to appreciate and absorb what he preaches with just an acoustic guitar instead of roaring in-your-face instrumentation.

This is certainly a contrast from the usual Senses Fail sound, but a pleasurable one for sure.
