RIYL: 2nd wave emo

Label: Spartan Records

Out of the vast wave of post-hardcore bands that settled into the indie emo landscape in the early to mid 90s, there were only a few success stories.  Sunny Day Real Estate triumphed with their massive-sounding In Circles, Jimmy Eat World were mainstays on MTV2 and Sense Field, after a decade of touring and building their fanbase, had a glimpse of stardom on their 2001 single Save Yourself.  Sense Field’s ability to dance between dissonance and melody launched them into the frontline of the emo’s most mainstream years, but the band decided to disband and move onto other adventures in 2004.

Tragically, Jon Bunch, lead singer of Sense Field as well as Further Seems Forever’s 3rd lineup, was found dead in January of this year.  Living Outside was their final album and has never been released on vinyl until now.

There were 4 different vinyl colorway options for this one, but the orange, mustard and mint stripe variant has sold out.  Pictured above is the blue with silver and black splatter, limited to just 150 copies.  Those will certainly be the next to sell out, so grab one while you can.  If you’re going to be out and about on Record Store Day, look for the exclusive colorway in your local store on electric blue vinyl.  Choose wisely, and RIP Jon Bunch!
