Emo rockers Taking Back Sunday have announced that they will be playing a series of shows across the UK next February. The New York five piece are currently on tour to support their upcoming album ‘Tidal Wave’. Pre-Order the album here.
Taking Back Sunday are one of the few emo bands to achieve relatively the same level of success on both sides of the pond. They first became popular after releasing their debut album ‘Tell All Your Friends’ in 2002, becoming well known for their fast paced chord progressions and emotional vocals. The records lead single ‘Cute Without The E’ is now regarded as one of the greatest songs of its era.
The band went on to release three more albums in the naughties. 2004’s ‘Where You Want To Be‘, 2006’s ‘Louder Now‘ and 2009’s ‘New Again‘. ‘Where You Want To Be’ marked a high point for the band when it hit the number one spot on the US Billboard Independent Albums Chart. Since that point however, the band’s popularity has waned and their most recent records 2011’s ‘Taking Back Sunday‘ and 2014’s ‘Happiness Is‘, have not brought with them the same levels of worldwide acclaim.
Their seventh album ‘Tidal Wave’ comes out on Friday (September 16) via Hopeless Records. The latest single from the album entitled ‘Death Wolf’ was released on YouTube yesterday.
To promote ‘Tidal Wave’ the band have announced a UK tour, their first since 2014. Priority tickets will be made available on Wednesday (September 14) and can be purchased here.
