Buddy Nielsen and Senses Fail partially explained what their newest album will be about. In a very recent interview, Nielsen also revealed what he thinks will be the title of Senses Fail’s eighth album. He is calling it Hell Is In Your Head. 

Now, the frontman talks about the relationships between this new album and their 2006 record Still Searching. Still Searching is Senses Fail’s highest-charting album to date, hitting number 15 on the US Billboard 200.

In an interaction on social media, Nielsen spoke about recording their eighth record. A fan asked what it would be about, or if it was too early to say.

Senses Fail reveal that the new album will shut the book on the character in Still Searching. As we all know, Still Searching is about a cocncept album about a character struggling with heartbreak, depression and faith. The character eventually decides to take their own life.

“The Priest and the Matador” is about the character’s rejection of faith as they lay on the pavement dying. The song ends with their death. Check out the lyrics below.

Here I lie, I’m staring at
Clouds and shapes of dogs and cats
I hear a woman, start to yell
“Oh dear God, I think he fell”

I’m the arrow shot straight to hell
From the bow of William Tell
My body lies kissing the ground
Like a cross turned upside down

A priest is rushing to my side
Begins to read me, my last rites
Father, you’re too late, my faith is weak
So won’t you save your half-hearted speech

I’m the arrow shot straight to hell
From the bow of William Tell
My body lies kissing the ground
Like a cross turned upside down

A man bends down and says
“Son, we’re going to get through this one
Take my hand and let us pray”
I scream, “Please get the fuck away”

I’m the arrow shot straight to hell
From the bow of William Tell
My body lies kissing the ground
Like a cross turned upside down

The ambulance is singing
As cops push back the crowd
I start to take my last breath
As blood pours out my mouth

The medics walk in my way
I think this could be it
I hear ’em start to state

The time of death is half past six
I’m the arrow shot straight to hell
I’m the arrow shot straight to hell

Exactly where the character’s journey ends and what will happen to them in the new album is very much unknown.

More Senses Fail

It’s crazy to think that My Chemical Romance has officially been around since 2001. That’s nearly 20 years. Given that wild fact, it only makes sense that Gerard Way and the gang would tour with a lot of bands and see a lot of people. James “Buddy” Nielsen of Senses Fail just shared one of those wonderful moments.

The picture is of Buddy and Way back in 2004 grinning ear to ear one month after Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge came out.

In a touching Instagram post, Buddy posted a picture describing a time when My Chemical Romance weren’t the biggest band in the world. Now, thousands of fans immediately sold out their reunion show. Tens of thousands have watched videos showing the set. The world cannot get enough of my Chemical Romance. But, it wasn’t always that way.

Gerard of @mychemicalromance and I at Toad’s Place New Haven, CT summer 2004. Three Cheers had come out a month before. We both played half of @vanswarpedtour and jumped in a bus to tour home. The shows were mostly at 300 cap clubs and below and everyday we’d show up there would be a massive line already around the block. It was so amazing to be with them at such an monumental time in their career. They would go on to become the biggest band in the world and it was really just so special to see them realize that everything they ever wanted was happening right at that time. This was the last show of tour and the next time I saw them, a couple weeks later they were on TRL. The rest is history.

This is such a cool look into the past of My Chemical Romance and Senses Fail. Both bands became incredibly successful in their own right.
