Strangling Vinyl Promotions and The Soundhouse Leicester are proud to present 90’s rap rock heroes Senser for a special show, including the return of original singer Kirsten Haigh on Friday 19th June!

In 2013 Senser successfully fan funded and released their 5th studio album ‘To The Capsules’ incorporating their unique fusion of rock, metal, hip hop and alternative electronica, staying true to the sound they have been producing since 1989.

Senser became known for their political lyrics and a huge live sound which gained them headline slots at major UK and European festivals. Senser achieved worldwide success with debut album ‘Stacked Up’ in 1994, which peaked at number 4 in the UK album charts. They subsequently split up having toured half the planet.

After a long hiatus, in 2009 Senser wrote and recorded their fourth studio album ‘How To Do Battle’ working with producers Neil McLellan (The Prodigy), Jason Wilcox (You Me At Six, Reuben, Fightstar) and New York hip hop producer Scott Harding (Wu Tang Clan, New Kingdom). The album achieved major success with the rock press and fans and put the band back on the festival and touring circuit.

Planet Mosh summed it up perfectly: “With Senser back from the 90′s, I was worried that they might have brought the 90′s sound with them, they didn’t. The delivery was superbly tight and the room erupted into a mosh pit. This wasn’t 90′s, this was Senser showing other bands how the transition over decades can be done perfectly. Fully retaining their powerful roots yet managing to make every track sound fresh and new. Quite an achievement.”

2011 saw the band release the ‘Biting Rhymes’ EP – a collection of classic hip hop covers recorded in true Senser style. This release saw the band complete a successful and highly praised UK tour scoring rave reviews in the alternative rock and metal scene. Senser were also joined by dynamic guest vocalist Imma, adding her own superb twist on Kerstin’s euphoric sound.

2014 will see the band re-release their seminal debut album Stacked Up, the remastered album will feature all the original tracks with new artwork plus a bonus album of remixes, demo’s and new tracks from Senser’s unreleased 1995 second album.
