Influential post-hardcore band Senses Fail has announced they will be releasing their highly anticipated, sixth studio album titled 'Pull The Thorns From Your Heart' on June 30th via Pure Noise Records. As a teaser of what's to come, the band has revealed the record's first new song and video for their track "The Importance of the Moment of Death."

Senses Fail frontman Buddy Nielsen has spent his entire life carving out his own path, both musically and personally. His devout dedication to Vipassana meditation and studies of Buddhist teachings have allowed him to find peace within himself, embrace his differences and eventually find comfort in his newfound identification as queer. Buddhism and being queer have direct roles in the creation of his band's new album, 'Pull The Thorns From Your Heart.'

"This record is the complete documentation of my transformative spiritual experience from the darkness to the light," says Nielsen. "It is the completion of a journey I have been on since I started making music when I was 17. I want this record to be more than just words and music but a blueprint for how through contemplative practice you can come to love, grow and blossom out of the muck of life and into the light. It is not intended to motivate in steps or exact teachings but empower. It is above all a personal story of struggle and realization."

'Pull The Thorns From Your Heart' is broken up into 4 non sequential acts that are named after Buddhist concepts and teachings, I - Annica & Sacca (Impermanence & Truth, II - Tisarana (The Three Jewels), III - Maransati (Mindfulness of Death) and IV - The Brahmaviharas (The Heavenly Abodes), which provide a blueprint for the overall arc of the record.
