Quick, when we say 2002 what’s the first thing that pops into your head? Spider-Man? The Osbornes? 8 Mile? Mrs. Jacob’s 8th-grade math class? Maybe that last one was just us, but what we were looking for was the birth of soon-to-be screamo giants Senses Fail.
Releasing their debut EP From the Depths of Dreams on ECA Records – and later re-issuing it via Drive-Thru Records – Buddy Nielsen and company quickly etched themselves into the screamo history books with their angsty, heartfelt tracks “Free Fall Without A Parachute,” “Bloody Romance,” and “One Eight Seven.”
Now six full-length albums deep with a few member changes, Nielsen is still going strong fronting the New Jersey outfit. Currently enjoying their monumental 15-year anniversary, Senses Fail is celebrating nationwide by performing their beloved sophomore LP Still Searching in full.
Catching their set alongside support acts Counterparts and Movements, trusted photographer Max Stone (yes, the same Max Stone who brought you a look at the lunacy of Every Time I Die’s Low Teens Tour) was able to capture the spirit of Still Searching 10-plus years after its initial debut.
To take a look though Stone’s lens, be sure to check out his photos below. Afterwards, if you haven’t picked up tickets to see Senses Fail out on tour or grabbed their latest EP In Your Absence, you can do so here.
