New Jersey post-hardcore heroes Senses Fail have released a two-track EP full of festive cheer, Christmas Has Been Canceled Due to Lack of Hustle, via Pure Noise Records.

“I Wish It Was Christmas Today” and “Donde Esta Santa Clause” are available to stream now, check them out below!

Vocalist Buddy Nielsen says:

“My stepfather has been telling me for 20 years that the only way to make it in the music industry is to do Christmas covers. He would point out Paul McCartney, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and WHAM as prime examples of musicians who did them right. He wasn’t wrong but I wasn’t in any rush. Christmas songs are best sung in July and when it comes time for them, I’m usually burnt out. However, this year, there wasn’t much to sing about or celebrate so I reserved my carols for these songs. I chose the two greatest Christmas songs that few know and even fewer cover. I was once told that if you build it they will come, I have built it and I hope you come. Happy Holidays and fuck 2020.”

This is Senses Fail’s second holiday-inspired covers release of 2020, following on from their split EP of Misfits covers, Through Being Ghoul, with Saves the Day. Check it out here.
