Senses Fail To Tour, Have New Guitarist

Senses Fail

Senses Fail have revealed that original guitarist Garrett Zablocki is out, and they have a new axeman in Matt Smith. According to singer Buddy Nielsen, the band “are sad to see him go but wish him luck in whatever he plans to do in the future. We will of course continue on as a band touring and making music. We are excited to say that Matt Smith from Strike Anywhere will be stepping up to fill Garrett’s role and we’re very excited to start working on new music as soon as possible.”

For his part, Zablocki says that after ten years with the band, “I’ve decided leave the band to attend college full time. I will still be playing music on the side, but I will no longer be doing it full time. I never thought playing guitar and writing songs in my basement would bring us to stages around the world, five albums recorded and experiences that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. The stories I can tell over a beer with a friend are endless because of what we accomplished through the years.” He also wished the band the best in his statement. In related news, Senses Fail will be hitting the road with The Ghost Inside, Man Overboard and Transit for a tour that kicks off in March. Those dates…after the jump.
