Buddy Nielsen, frontman of post-hardcore emissaries Senses Fail, had a huge 2018 with the release of If There Is Light, It Will Find You. Despite this, Nielsen already has his eyes set to the future and the title of his next record in his head.

In this APTV exclusive, the singer reveals what he thinks will be the title of the next Senses Fail record, dives deep into the perils of crippling debt and picks a favorite Senses Fail deep cut.

To mark the start of their co-headlining tour with the Amity Affliction, Senses Fail unleashed a new video for “Elevator To The Gallows.”

Senses Fail love Demi Lovato, and they don’t care who knows, using the video to prove it. The band embraced a concept of “How to win Demi Lovato’s love,” working their hardest to win over the singer.

From learning how to dance, amping up their look, working out and creating her favorite snacks, the band put their all into a Lovato-inspired boot camp.

While the video captures fun between the band, it’s a stark contrast to the song’s message. The lyrics capture what frontman Buddy Nielsen was grappling with while his wife faced extreme complications after their daughter Penelope’s birth.

And while the band are hoping to gain Lovato’s attention with the new video, they are doing so for a serious reason.

“We are all big fans of Demi,” the band says. We’ve tried to [at] her on Twitter but to no avail! So we took the logical next step and made a video devoted to winning her attention.

“Having personally struggled with addiction, I know all too well what Demi has been through. We want her to know Senses Fail loves her and wishes her the very best! Your best friends who you don’t know yet, Senses Fail.”

Do they successfully win her over? Watch it here to find out.
