How Senses Failed
Lead vocalist James Nielsen decided to post a simple advertisement on the Internet in order to recruit some new band members to a project he was working on at the time. Garrett Zablocki, James Gill and Dave Miller formed the original Senses Fail. Dan Trapp also joined as a drummer after a short time. Senses Fail started to build a dedicated fan base by agreeing to play local gigs whenever and wherever it could. Parks and clubs both helped the group build a solid profile and gain the attention of a recording label. Senses Fail released a six-track extended play, From the Depths of Dreams, that was well-received by both fans and critics. Nielsen explains that the band takes its name from a state of enlightenment reached via meditation.
