Sense Field has been largely credited with bringing post-hardcore/ emo to a more mainstream audience alongside contemporaries like Sunny Day Real Estate, Jimmy Eat World and Texas Is the Reason. Initially signed to Revelation Records, they were hotly pursued by the major labels, eventually signing to Warner Bros. Records. Unfortunately the band became mired in inner-label politicking and sat in limbo for five years as the label re-staffed multiple times. They were eventually released from their contract and won the right to re-record the album they'd written for Warner Bros. Records (originally titled "Under The Radar" and later renamed Tonight & Forever). The band then signed to Canadian independent label, Nettwerk, and saw a release in September 2001. The band experienced their greatest success with the single "Save Yourself", initially part of a compilation of tracks, "Roswell", which was promoted by the band and the cast of the TV series. Sense Field appeared on late night television shows such as The Tonight Show and The Late Late Show and saw the song place on numerous 2002 best of countdowns. The group quickly followed up the release with the 2003 album Living Outside. Sense Field disbanded in January 2004 at the culmination of a world tour in support of their fifth and final album.
Following the demise of Sense Field the band members went on to other outfits. Jon Bunch became the vocalist of Further Seems Forever. They released one album with Bunch in the line up before that band also parted ways. In early 2006, Jon Bunch and his Further Seems Forever bandmate Derick Cordoba went on to create Fields Forever, a duo project that plays acoustic versions of Sense Field and Further Seems Forever songs. Original drummer Scott McPherson became a sought after session player and also was a member of both Elliott Smith and Neil Finn's touring bands. Rodney Sellars created the shoegaze revivalist outfit, The Year Zero, who released their debut album in mid-2006. Chris Evenson appeared in tandem with The Juliana Theory's Brett Detar for a song under the Belasana moniker which was featured on 2004's "Maybe This Christmas Tree".
Sense Field reunited for a Revelation Records 25 Year Anniversary Show on Thursday, June 7, 2012 at The Glass House in Pomona, CA. As a warm up to that show, they played The Slide Bar in Fullerton, CA on Wednesday, June 6, 2012. They also played the Rev 25 show in Chicago on January 6, 2013. All three shows featured all original members except filling in on bass for John Stockberger was Ian Fowles who also toured the U.S. filling in on guitar for Rodney Sellars in 2003 while supporting Living Outside.
