Senses Fail: Spring Tour and New Guitarist

Senses Fail have announced the dates for their new headlining tour and the departure of guitarist Garrett Zablocki.

The PMA Tour, featuring Senses Fail with special guests The Ghost Inside, Man Overboard and Transit, starts March 10 in Scranton, PA. After a handful of shows across the States, the trek will come to an end in Pawtucket, RI on April 10.

Pre-sale tickets go on sale tomorrow at 3PM ET at

Not joining Senses Fail’s forthcoming tour will be guitarist Garrett Zablocki, who has decided to leave the New Jersey rock act.

Zablocki stated in a press release, “After nearly a decade of being a founder and member of Senses Fail, I’ve decided [to] 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. I wish Buddy, Dan (Trapp) and Jason (Black) the best of luck as they continue Senses Fail on into the future.”

Vocalist Buddy Nielsen commented, “Unfortunately Garrett has decided to leave Senses Fail after almost ten years. We 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.”
