Senses Fail cancel U.S. tour: 'We respect everyone's anger and feelings'

As rumored, Senses Fail have indeed canceled their spring U.S. tour with We Came As Romans, Counterparts, and SeeYouSpaceCowboy. News of the tour's demise originally came via Counterparts, who expressed dismay with the late notice and inevitable loss of thousands of dollars.

Senses Fail vocalist Buddy Nielsen says that the decision was the result of the imminent birth of his second child, the delayed release of their new album, and the opportunity to participate in a tour that will "be something new and exciting for our fans."

Nielsen's full statement can be read below.

A fast moving pregnancy? You had 9+ months to know it was going to fall during that time. Do what you need to for your family but that's disrespectful to everyone else involved.

Imagine blaming a tour cancellation on a baby. Takes almost a year for that process. Rise Against, please change your mind and drop Senses Fail from your upcoming tour.

anonymous 2/22/2022 10:32:46 AM

here to see the haters cry about it Senses Fail probably realized counterparts aren't as good as Emmure or Bury Your Dead

Buddy has such a world class grasp of manipulative language but is also such a transparently self serving dork that it totally cancels out. Should've been a politician instead of a musician, he would've gotten farther and spared us all the d-rate trend hopping for 2 decades. Also you knew about the record delays way in advance. As I believe somebody on here pointed out when it was announced, it's insane that a record announced in September would come out in July. Attila should offer every band on this a spot on their tour.

The baby just wanted to get born out of nowhere, man!

Real story is his wife got fat during the pandemic, he took one for the team & banged her out, she kept getting fatter, booked the tour hoping to score some bus bunnies & get away from the fat lady, and bam that gas she thought was from her 10th churro was a bun the oven.

anonymous 2/22/2022 10:39:14 AM

Buddy didn't want to tour with Brendan Murphy's Dicknose.

Todd Jones here. Long story short, but once your mans had to cancel an entire NAILS tour. What had happened was, after one of my standard meetings with the Dimex Corporation, wherein we discussed the conglomerate's ability to use The Bridgebuilder cold fusion unit to send entities from this realm into extra-dimensional realities, I chirped our booking agent on the Cricket wireless to have homeboy route a tour through various parallel Universes. In each of these, we would perform a special "Lure of the Tarantula" set, wherein we would forego food/water and basic human necessities and play until that particular Universe's variants of ourselves would attempt to break bread with us in the flesh. At that point, your mans would deploy special eagle visions and killing hides supplied by Dimex, which would force-subjugate ourselves into space-time enslavement. Let's just say the first stop of this tour went horribly for reasons that involve the fifth dimension. LATERED. We will never be of us.

And I have heard great tales of a miraculous birth! A child born in the east with no warning whatsoever! A child born with powers unknown to mortal man. Shit tours arise and the child striketh them down with naught but a wiggle of his tiny finger and a gassy smile. BEHOLD, HEATHENS!!! And bow down before thine savior come to reclaim his mighty kingdom! Bow down and repent! Bow down before thy lord… Buddy Jr.!!!!!

anonymous 2/22/2022 10:59:23 AM

Someone needs to tell the dude in SYSC he's not a she. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Just gonna keep trying this one out, huh? Go back to listening to Christian hardcore.

anonymous 2/22/2022 11:07:03 AM

Don't care about this band but pretty pathetic to try to say this has anything to do with the impending birth of his kid. Just be honest and tell everybody the truth which is that you'll make more money by opening for Rise Against.

anonymous 2/22/2022 11:08:51 AM

Christ, that explanation is making things worse. Just say that you got a better tour offer and leave it at that. Who cares if the drummer of an opening band is butthurt or whatever. If his band had a similar opportunity, they'd do the exact same thing. But they don't, and that's what he's really mad about.

anonymous 2/22/2022 11:21:27 AM

Every band mentioned blow

Brendan Murphy is ugly af

Listen to Kruelty you sagez and koons!

anonymous 2/22/2022 11:50:12 AM

None of the other reasons are relevant when they are going on a new, different tour. What a slap in the face. I hope they lose fans over this. They deserve it.

rick_tocchet 2/22/2022 11:50:29 AM

More like Senses FRAIL. Stay home and breast feed your little one. That baby is going to grow up in a Tolitarian World where music is racist and cant exists anymore. Get used to it little boy, delete your albums and get a job at the nearest Chipotle, you should be manager within 9 months with all those l33t tattoos.

anonymous 2/22/2022 11:58:22 AM

Ummm newborn son??…did he ask it what gender it would like to be or just assume??? Sickening stuff

What a selfish asshole, Buddy is! The world revolves around him🖕

anonymous 2/22/2022 2:49:49 PM

I can't wait to see what the new tour is. It's going to be hilarious if it's some shitty band or a band like breaking Benjamin and Buddy thinks this will, "break" his band after all these years and all their shitty albums

anonymous 2/22/2022 2:55:42 PM

anonymous 4 hours ago i need a scalding hot taken from vogel's accountant why terror fell through as the back up headliners. and i need it now I think he left his unofficial post for Vogel to be Turnstiles new unofficial accountant.

anonymous 2/22/2022 2:58:36 PM

Lmao. Can you imagine talking shit to a guy who wants to be home for the birth of his child. Y'all need to grow up.

anonymous 2/22/2022 5:03:49 PM

Oh man.. yeah you guys were right about brendan murphy

anonymous 2/22/2022 5:05:37 PM

Amy Coney Barrett here. Less abortion means less tours. You'll thank me for it later, fatties.

anonymous 2/22/2022 5:17:32 PM

Guns n Roses/Metallica are stoked.

anonymous 2/22/2022 5:28:01 PM

Brendan should scream with a paper bag mask on

anonymous 2/22/2022 6:36:30 PM

All these other bands from the tour have plenty of connections and other ways to make something else happen. Brendan and Connie can't hit up Bryan Garris and Oli Sykes? lmao

Brendan and Connie can't hit up Bryan Garris and Oli Sykes? lmao >>> Counterparts LOVES to jock other bands' followings - besides they're too afraid to headline - so I'm surprised they're not burning up the emails.

anonymous 2/22/2022 8:41:19 PM

Counterparts is true retard music, the singer is a mongoloid

anonymous 2/22/2022 10:46:31 PM

Brendan is more funny/real than most vocalists out there, keep riding Buddy's dick though.

anonymous 2/23/2022 7:44:35 AM

anonymous 2/23/2022 7:56:30 AM

So why couldn't another band fill in the Senses Fail slot? The tour could have gone on. Pretty sure most of the crow was going to see the other bands!

anonymous 2/23/2022 8:02:19 AM

Trump lost and everyone forgot about Ashley Babbit.

anonymous 2/23/2022 8:31:28 AM

Who's better looking? Brendan from counterparts or Bedard from Bane? I'm leaning Bedard.

Brendan is more funny/real than most vocalists out there, keep riding Buddy's dick though. >>> Keep riding Brendan's dick. He is neither funny or realer than most vocalists, he's a bigmouth & he looks like a drunken frat dude. As for Buddy LOL & SMH that he's using his newborn baby as an excuse to dick out of a tour. Come clean & say you took a better tour for same or more money & exposure & so you could make more money for your family. Also at least make an attempt to get Counterparts on your new tour as an opener (the other bands can be hooked up down the road) which allows you to play later this in front of more Rise Against fans.

Buddy blaming this on childbirth makes him the Ted Cruz of music.

anonymous 2/23/2022 3:27:51 PM

Lots of inside industry jargon here. Who are the rumored bands that post in these comments?

anonymous 2/23/2022 4:32:34 PM

anonymous 2/24/2022 7:05:03 AM

Hey Buddy!!!,Chris Hornbrook is ACTUALLY the father of that child.

anonymous 2/24/2022 6:22:41 PM

Buddy is a giant narcissistic dickhead. Remember when he wanted to turn sense fail into a hardcore band and no one cared so we went crawling back to pop punk? Or when we came out as queer, became an sjw out of nowhere because it was the cool thing? He's truly a poser to highest degree.

anonymous 2/25/2022 6:04:30 AM

Nah he was talking about LGBT issues back in 2006 or 07.

anonymous 2/25/2022 9:38:05 AM

Yo b Murphy you're busted af

anonymous 4/2/2022 1:34:13 AM

Nothing about touring with The Used is "new and exciting" for your fans. The Used should have broken up after their second album and Senses Fail stopped being relevant after Life Is Not a Waiting Room.

anonymous 5/24/2022 11:42:50 AM

Trump lost and everyone forgot about Ashley Babbit. Everyone except for my throbbing member located deep inside the denim abyss known as my Levi's.
