Taking Back Sunday is set to kick off their nationwide headlining tour on June 14, 2011 in Denver, CO. The summer-long run, which also features Thursday and Colour Revolt, will support the release of their new album Taking Back Sunday, due out June 28, 2011.
The self-titled release is a return to the band's original line-up from their 2002 debut Tell All Your Friends: vocalist Adam Lazzara, guitarist Eddie Reyes and drummer Mark O'Connell have reunited with vocalist/guitarist John Nolan and bass player Shaun Cooper, who departed in 2003. Tell All Your Friends has sold over one million records worldwide, spawned breakthrough anthem "Cute without the 'E' (Cut from the Team) and launched the band as one of the most influential of its generation. Taking Back Sunday graces the cover of the July issue of Alternative Press magazine, with a 13-page definitive oral history feature inside. It hits newsstands tomorrow.
Recorded in Los Angeles with producer Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age, All American Rejects), Taking Back Sunday is the New York Band's fifth studio album, three of which have been certified gold. They are releasing an iTunes exclusive ep tomorrow, June 7th, which contains new songs "This Is All Now" and "Best Places To Be A Mom" as well as an 2011 acoustic version of "Ghost Man On Third" off Tell All Your Friends. SPIN is currently premiering "This Is All Now" on their website: http://www.spin.com/articles/exclusive-taking-back-sundays-comeback-song
