Senses Fail has announced details of an upcoming live event that will be broadcast in two parts. The band filmed the live performances of their hit albums “Let It Enfold You” and “Still Searching” in their entirety at Joshua Tree at Sunrise and Sunset. The ‘Still Searching’ ensemble will air on July 29, and the ‘Let It Enfold You’ ensemble will air the following week, August 5.
The decors are complemented by an elaborate construction that was carried out in the middle of the iconic desert. Thanks to a 360-degree track camera, as well as various surrounding and aerial steadicams, fans will be brought to a unique live broadcast experience with a space created especially for these performances.
âJoshua Tree is linked to a lot of milestones for me and the band,â says singer Buddy Nielsen. “I heard the news of my first child, witnessed and first responder to a horrific accident, heard from a new president, and lived a life that changed relationships with nature and family.
As a human I have done my best to survive and ultimately thrive, I see the Joshua Tree Wilderness as a similar example of a desolate space that thrives. My inner story can be sorry at times, but I have always found a way to grow and persist despite difficult conditions. The wilderness has shown me that life is both beautiful and tragic, and the two must exist in each other’s arms to feel the full spectrum of what the universe has to offer. I can’t think of a better place to perform two of the most popular and landmark records that, deep in my heart, go to the trees of Joshua and the shadows of ancient rock formations. “
