Senses Fail is a 5 piece band that has been together for a bit over 3 years. We're probably a combination of a little bit of everything..rock..pop..post hardcore..whatever you wanna call it.
I think most people have classifications for genres..or else it'd be hard for people to identify what a band sounds like. Although i guess those bands are all closer to the same vein......you get all kinds of bands being called emo which really doesn't define a line.....but i guess it defines the scene that we're all from. I think we're along the same lines as those bands...could be classified as the same genre.
Steve Evetts is great. We couldn't have been happier to work with him since he did all of our favorite bands we looked up to. He sets a great mood for recording.
No matter who is the president...i won't like them..it's plain and simple. They're all politicians..they all want money power and all lie to make the country feel better. Until everyone in this world can understand that everyone has different beliefs and can accept people for the way they are...war will never end and that's sad.
And if you look back in history at what a conservative is, it's completely the opposite of what a conservative is right now. A conservative is someone who is like an isolationist and is like pretty much anti all government. Anti-government in any way interfering with your life. It's really, really the opposite of what it is now. It's just ridiculous. It's just so weird that when you think of a conservative now and what it was and what the definition should be - it's completely the opposite. A conservative would never ever go to Iraq. It's like why are we going over there, why are we spending money, why are we spending resources, why are we putting people in danger at a place where it's really not going to affect us. I think there's going to be.. Not revolution but.. You know the protests for Vietnam and everything and the way that the country got. It took awhile. It took people ten years for people to be like this is awful! Why are we doing this? (laughs) It took people like really, really long. After the election happened, and I'm not a Democrat, I don't like Democrats either.. I think the whole idea of both is there's very few political figures who actually stand up for and actually represent the people. Like.. whose that guy from Chicago?
My inspiration changes all the time. Recently I've just been pissed off at the world. Pissed off at like politics and the war and what's happened to music. Mainly what's happenend to punk rock. Where it's gone and how it's totally changed. Just a lot of anger just towards society as a whole and how disgusting it is with it's gang mentallity all the time. Most people don't have a problem latching onto something and not figuring out what their views and not having a mind of their own. Whether it's dressing punk rock or being white power and hating black people because that's what everyone's doing. People don't look at things the way they really are. If you were to look at things the way they really are - then why would we go to Iraq? I mean if you're an anarchist then they call you a terrorist. There is no difference for them if a person defaces let's say The World Bank - just anything that is real protest. They put it in the same boat as the terrorists who blew up The World Trade Center. They've been able to lump it all into one thing and it's really scary that any sort of view that isn't right-wing, conservative ideals just isn't acceptable. It's really odd that they can get people to believe that there's this whole liberal media out there. The fact is that the liberal media doesn't exist. I mean look who's controlling all television and all newspapers and all radio - it's right-wing nuts. They're so good with their propaganda and their machine that they've created that they're able to convince everyone. If you're not pro-American then you are a horrible, horrible person. It's not that everyone isn't pro-American. My idea is that you disagree with the polices of this country and can still be pro-American.
