Their second album, Magnified, was released in March 1994; a promotional video (the band's first) was made for the single "Undone", but it received little airtime, if any, on any of the traditional music video outlets. Critics took note of the sonic and musical advances achieved on Magnified, and other more well-known musicians also began singing Failure's praises. In support of the new album, Failure embarked on a 29 city tour starting March 11, 2019 and ending April 24, 2019. They were joined by Swervedriver as a supporting act on the tour.

Magnified is the second album by the American alternative rock band Failure. Magnified differs greatly from Failure's debut album Comfort by using a great deal of bass guitar distortion. Their use of a bassline as the main structure to the song as well as distortion can be heard best on "Frogs" and "Wonderful Life". Harmonics are also used extensively and can be heard quite prominently on the songs "Moth", "Wonderful Life" and "Empty Friend".

It has its moments, but not enough of them and as a result the buzz for their follow-up, Magnified, was extant but not considerable. The fact that they were endlessly compared to Nirvana caused many to write them off as unoriginal, but while the similarities are there, mainly in their punk influences, the more fair comparison would be Hum.
