Luckily though, the band are working on a second album so fans will likely be getting two new records within a year of each other.
Last month, the band said the follow up to 2018’s If There Is Light, It Will Find You would be coming soon pending on how the coronavirus situation develops.
In March, they ended up revealing the record’s full title would be What The Thunder Said, Hell Is In Your Head.
The record is called What The Thunder Said, Hell Is In Your Head. It is a concept record split into two stories. One half the record is in minor the other is in major. Half the record is inspired by TS Elliott’s “Wasteland” the other is based on Walt Whitman’s “To Think of Time”

On top of the new album though, they’re packaging a covers record while under quarantine. Whether or not this is the second album mentioned today is unclear.
They’ve already finished recording “We’re Only Gonna Die” by Bad Religion and mentioned that they are covering a Morrissey song while they could potentially be covering Jawbreaker and the Get Up Kids.
Gonna be DIY. I’m gonna mix it and Gavin and I are doing I remotely. Pretty fun so far. We also have a Morrissey song. Thinking about Jawbreaker, maybe early Get Up Kids. https://t.co/4YbKAqZ7ou

At the time, they said they were hoping to drop the new album once lockdowns were over during the pandemic. Unfortunately, the pandemic isn’t coming to an end any time soon so it’s still delayed.
Hopefully when they end lockdown so maybe next month. https://t.co/bAs3G8cHTN

Now, frontman Buddy Nielsen says they’re packaging two albums with the extra time they have.

A fan asked whether or not it would be two Senses Fail albums or one and another for a side project. The band’s official account responded clarifying that it’s two Senses Fail albums.

So, while fans are going to be waiting a while longer for a new Senses Fail album it’s going to be worth the wait as we’ll be getting twice the amount of material we would have been before.
