The lovable lads in Senses Fail recently announced that they will be auctioning off a very rare test pressing of their latest record Renacer. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Liberty Humane Society located in the band’s hometown, Jersey City, New Jersey.
There are only 4 test pressings in existence of the new album, which was released March 26 through Staple Records. Fans can place their bids on eBay right now with the auction ending on Monday, May 20th.
Here is what Senses Fail frontman, Buddy Nielsen, has to say about the auction and humane society:
Having adopted an animal from this shelter I know first hand how truly caring and hardworking they are. I would love nothing more than to help them save animals and provide the community with a safe haven for animals and animal lovers.
The Liberty Humane Society also had a few things to say:
The past year and a half has been an exciting time at Liberty Humane Society. At the close of 2011, we challenged ourselves to make the next year a period of major growth for the shelter. We’re pleased to tell you that not only did we close out 2012 with our best year ever for adoptions, but we also gave back to the community by providing more low-cost Wellness Clinics for pet owners. 2013 is off with a bang with over 200 adoptions to date!
This progress would never have been possible without continued support from our sponsors, Senses Fail. Each year we are challenged to raise at least $400,000 just to meet the budget required to care for the homeless animals! These donations go towards efforts that are not covered by municipal funding such as spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and medication, behavioral modification training, progressive tactics to increase adoptions, and the ability to house and care for stray animals beyond their state-mandated seven-day hold.
