Over a decade in now and Senses Fail still deliver one hell of a live show. Here’s a band that really helped anchor our scene back in 04, and they’re still dominating today. Talk about seasoned professionals. And man can Buddy Nielsen scream his lungs out. If you can scream a song in Spanish (“Mi Amor”) and not miss a note, while still getting the crowd going while, I think you’re doing something exactly right. All the classics, from “Shark Attack” to “Lady in a Blue Dress” and the final “187,” sound even better ten years later, as Nielsen’s vocal abilities are...
Ebay Shitbirds Rejoice. This weekend in Hamilton we finished recording the first of the 4X7" series we're doing. 8 songs, including Rival Leaders (the Exploited cover we were playing at the January shows) and a redux of Standing By. They'll be limited to 400 (in honour of 400 Upper Sherman, a pivotal Steel City hardcore house of our youth). We're putting them out ourselves, they'll be available via subscription through A389, and they'll have all kinds of extra shit in them - stickers and patches and a poster that all 4 covers will make up. There'll be no digital version other than previews...

"It was Ultra Pop's 5th anniversary and they asked us to set up illegally next door and play a set," says vocalist/guiarist Ryan Patterson. "It was an oppressive 98 degrees outside, and the music apparently was rattling windows many blocks away... Soon enough the police rushed in and the rest is on film."
Redesigned and remastered for a vinyl only release, this record will only be made available as a pre-order and will only be pressed according to the amount of records pre-ordered over the course of one month. On May 20, 2013, all sales will end, and after the records are pressed and mailed out to all who ordered, the release will go out of print, once and for all. No copies for retail outlets, no digital download version, and certainly no CD version. Love it or hate it, here it is. Be warned!
