Senses Fail are streaming their forthcoming new album, ‘Pull The Thorns From Your Heart’ online ahead of its release next week (29th June, via Pure Noise Records).
“This record is the complete documentation of my transformative spiritual experience from the darkness to the light. It is the completion of a journey I have been on since I started making music when I was 17,” frontman Buddy Nielsen has previously said of the new record, the band’s sixth.
“I want this record to be more than just words and music but a blueprint for how through contemplative practice you can come to love, grow and blossom out of the muck of life and into the light. It is not intended to motivate in steps or exact teachings but empower. It is above all a personal story of struggle and realisation.”
The album is broken up into four non sequential acts, named after Buddhist concepts and teachings: I – Annica & Sacca (Impermanence & Truth, II – Tisarana (The Three Jewels), III – Maransati (Mindfulness of Death) and IV – The Brahmaviharas (The Heavenly Abodes).
