Senses Fail and Saves The Day Announce North American 'New Jersey Vs. The World' Tour

Iconic emo and pop-punk stalwarts Senses Fail and Saves The Day have announced an epic co-headline tour set for November and December. Aptly titled the 'New Jersey Vs. The World' tour, this 25-date trek will celebrate two landmark anniversaries: the 20th anniversary of Senses Fail’s Let It Enfold You and the 25th anniversary of Saves The Day’s Through Being Cool. Each night will feature full-album performances, making this tour a must-see for longtime fans and newcomers alike.

The tour kicks off on November 5 at Emo’s in Austin, TX, and will traverse North America, wrapping up at the Marquee Theater on December 8. Joining the tour as support will be Texas-based rock outfit Narrow Head, adding an extra layer of intensity to the already electrifying lineup.

Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 23 at noon EST, with fan club presales starting today, May 21 at noon EST. Both bands are also offering exclusive VIP packages, promising fans an even more immersive experience.

Reflecting on the tour, Senses Fail’s frontman Buddy Nielsen shared, “I am so honored to be able to go on tour to celebrate a release from 20 years ago. If you had told me all that time ago that we'd still be able to make music and tour this far into our career, I would be blown away. To have the privilege to tour with one of our main influences in Saves The Day as they celebrate one of my favorite records of all time is absolutely a blessing. I cannot wait to get out on the road."

Saves The Day’s Chris Conley echoed this enthusiasm, stating, “Together we plan on bringing the spirit of New Jersey to life on stage in a city near you. Let’s all sing along to our favorite songs like we did way back in the day!”

Let It Enfold You remains a defining cornerstone of the mid-2000s emo explosion. As Nielsen recounts, “We were just teenagers trying to make sense of everything that was happening to us and everything we were feeling as we stood on the cusp of adulthood.” Two decades later, its raw energy and emotional depth continue to resonate deeply with fans.

On the other hand, Through Being Cool is often hailed as a genre-defining masterpiece. Conley describes it as the “story of my life at 17 and 18 years old, ripped from the pages of journals, college assignments and love letters.” The album captures the exhilaration and turmoil of adolescence, creating a timeless ode to growing up that remains influential 25 years on.

This tour promises to be a celebration of two groundbreaking albums and the enduring legacy of two bands that helped shape the emo and pop-punk genres. Don't miss your chance to be part of this monumental event.
