Like many emo bands, Senses Fail
owes a lot to its MySpace friends list. Its second album, Still Searching
, recently debuted in the Top 15, thanks to a legion of online fans who've been buzzing about the new songs since summer. True to its New Jersey roots, Senses Fail is a bit scruffier than its peers. Opener Saosin
just released its self-titled debut, which has been in the works for three years. During that time, the SoCal band replaced its singer with a similar-sounding screamer. But its mix of buzzing, post-hardcore guitars and sensitive emo lyrics remains a potent part of the sound.
