Senses Fail has two big announcements: A spring headlining tour and the replacement of an original member.
The tour will feature special guests The Ghost Inside, Man Overboard, and Transit and will kick off on March 10 in Pennsylvania and hits secondary markets all across the US before wrapping up on April 10 in Rhode Island.
Senses Fail also announces the departure of original guitarist Garrett Zablocki. Singer Buddy Nielsen comments: "Unfortunately Garrett has decided to leave Senses Fail after almost ten years. We are sad to see him go but wish him luck in whatever he plans to do in the future. We will of course continue on as a band touring and making music. We are excited to say that Matt Smith from Strike Anywhere will be stepping up to fill Garrett's role and we're very excited to start working on new music as soon as possible."
Garrett Zablocki issued the following statement: "After nearly a decade of being a founder and member of Senses Fail, I've decided leave the band to attend college full time. I will still be playing music on the side, but I will no longer be doing it full time. I never thought playing guitar and writing songs in my basement would bring us to stages around the world, five albums recorded and experiences that I wouldn't have had otherwise. The stories I can tell over a beer with a friend are endless because of what we accomplished through the years. I wish Buddy, Dan (Trapp) and Jason (Black) the best of luck as they continue Senses Fail on into the future."
Senses Fail is touring in support of their fourth full-length, The Fire (10/26, Vagrant).
