Biography

Los Angeles, United States

Sense Field was a post-hardcore/emocore band from Los Angeles, California that formed in 1991 after the then members of the DC-infuenced emocore band Reason to Believe decided to break away and try something new. The result was immense and they became the mentors for and had a major influence on the bands that brought emo to the mainstream. As such, they are one of the unsung heroes of underground music. Their Revelation Records releases show their willingness to meld sincere emotion with the most positive expressive styles available in hardcore punk. Each one has a distinctive sound.

The most hardcore-influenced and most popular of the 4 albums released during this time is ‘Building’ released in 1996.

Troubles beset them in the late 1990’s after signing with Warner Bros, trusting the word of high-levels of the coropration. Unfortunately for thier fans, the two albums they recorded during these years were shelved. An EP, a split 7”, and a single were released during this time, but only radio-promo’s of their ill-named masterpiece “Under the Radar” ever saw the light of day.

The band eventually won the right to re-record a third album and some of the material from these hidden gems came to light. This record, Tonight and Forever, was recorded in their own Denseflies studio, and was released in 2001 by Nettwerk America.

Ironically, they were picked up by the radar, and experienced their greatest success to date some 10 years after they began with the single Save Yourself.
