#77: Senses Fail - Renacer

Senses Fail are a band who once adorned the t-shirts and posters of skinny boys in eye-liner and fat girls in even more eye-liner. Their macabre fusion of metal hooks and occasionally violent, always emotional lyricism resonated within the skinny jeaned contingency almost globally.

Now, three years after the releases of The Fire comes the band’s fifth studio album Renacer and rarely has an album been more aptly named.
