Hey buddy, my name is Jeremy, and I'm from western NC. I've listened to Senses Fail since I was 14, which was ten years a go. EVERY time you write a new album, it's ALWAYS been a mirror image of where I'm at mentally and spiritually in my own life.. You have NO idea how much your lyrics and music have influenced my life! There's no doubt in my mind I would not be who I am today without y'alls influence. It seems like the past two releases kind of show that you've reached a point in your own life where you seem to be at peace more so than in the other albums. So I was just curious as to where you drew inspiration from when you were writing the lyrics for this album, and I also wanted to know if there are any plans to release your covers EP for purchase, cause I'm DYING to hear those songs ASAP! Looking forward to seeing you at Cat's Cradle in a couple of weeks... Much love, and THANK YOU!
Thanks Jeremy, look forward to seeing you at the show. You are correct in assuming that I have come to terms and am at peace with myself. The inspiration that I drew from for this record was, wanting other people to feel the same way as I do. I wanted to share a message of positivity.
Buddy, Ive noticed over the years you wearing a lot of band shirts of bands I'm also a fan of myself (great call on the bane album as well). Are you into any of these newer hardcore bands? Ive been jamming Renacer and the new Incendiary album, its been a good week.
I was playing along to "To All The Crowded Rooms" last night, when I started putting it in to the frame of other songs, and realized it had a completely different meaning. What was the intended message of that song? I once assumed it was about acceptance but suddenly I'm seeing it as a song about finding security in medication.
It was about how the crowd and playing live helped me deal with my issues.
Just wanted to say that I really respect the risk you guys took making such a big change in your sound on Renacer. Most established bands just stick to the same old sound album after album, but you guys are doing a great job in keeping your sound fresh and staying relevant. Oh, and you guys were amazing at when I saw you live at the Comcast Center
