Senses Fail Talk About Their Future

Posted by - 04:33 PM on 06/04/12
Senses Fail are planning a new album and have a DVD update.
From the InterviewYeah. Its definitely changed. There was talk of doing that and now its just that a DVD or a documentary or a thing like that costs a lot of money to do. Its just not something that you dont really know how much you are going to get out of putting a lot of money into it. We talked about doing a Kickstarter, but I really hate the overuse of Kickstarter from well known bands. Its a tough argument on how it can be perceived and what it should be used for. We were throwing around the idea of how we were going to fund this thing. Does the label want to fund it? Are they interested? How many people are really going to I think a lot of people would be interested in seeing it. I dont know how many people would be interested in buying it. So thats kind of what we ran into with how we fund it and how we make it happen. The thing is, we caught a lot of footage. Over 8 terabytes of footage literally dating back to the first time that we ever practiced. Up until, I dont know we just played a show in Starland. That was kind of the last footage we have of us playing in Starland with Saves The Day over the holidays. We literally have thousands of hours of video tape documenting every tour weve ever done, every video weve ever done, recording processes from a lot of different records. So we have a lot of stuff to put together. But we want it to also include interviews with people that were a part of all of it, you know? Old managers, people whove worked at the labels weve been on, obviously the band members, ex-band members. Thats where the money starts to be an issue. Like how do you fund that? Right now were at the point where basically my mom has had all of this footage and shes going to start putting it together. I dont know whats going to come of it. If what she puts together ends up being good, well put it out. If it ends up being something we think is just kind of throw-away, we probably wont put it out. Its just hard. Were not fuckin Pearl Jam. Were not Soundgarden, were not Nirvana or Foo Fighters. We dont have this legendary story. A band that started from nothing and went on to be one of the biggest bands in the entire world that spanned over twenty years. Weve been a band for ten years and I think weve accomplished a lot, but its not this overwhelming story arc. I think if you like Senses Fail, youd enjoy watching it, but Im not sure if its going to be the type of thing where if youre not a fan of the band, are you going to be interested in it? I dont know. So right now its very much loose. Were going to start doing some interviews to piece together the timeline of what were going to put together. Im not really that involved with it because I have a lot of other stuff going on. We all do. Thats not our focus. Thats another reason why this thing is taking a lot of time. Its something that could happen but hasnt happened because it takes a lot of work, takes a lot of time, takes a lot of money, and were just not sure how good of a thing were going to come up with. So until we kind of piece that together with some of the interviews and it starts to take shape, were not going to know if were really going to release it. Worst case scenario, its something that well just put up online, just for people to check out.

these guys sound really level-headed and content with what they've achieved and where Senses Fail is at, I like that.

Wrong band.

My bad. War Paint made me think of Dangerous Summer. I apparently don't follow SF's career that closely.

This band's ability to stay relevant is really impressive, especially when most of the bands that got big during that era are all dead and buried

I seen nothing wrong with kickstarter as long as they refuse donations after their goals has been reached, and offer legitimate incentives (versus a tweet, like some of which I've seen)

I'd totally love to see SF do something new

It's a nifty little move you do to get your car working if it doesn't want to crank.
