Taking Back Sunday

Back in 2002, Taking Back Sunday released their debut album, Tell All Your Friends. After that album, the original lineup split up and TBS continued with new members, moving further and further away from their original sound until they basically became the epitome of MTV pop emo. The original lineup reunited for a self titled album in 2011, but saying that album didn't quite capture what was achieved on TAYF is an understatement -- that album was pretty downright bad.

So say what you will about the band now (or even then), but when Tell All Your Friends came out, it was up there with albums like Thursday's Full Collapse, Brand New's Your Favorite Weapon, and Thrice's The Illusion of Safety for one of the most impacting emo albums of the early 2000's for those teenagers (like myself) who were beginning to discover that you can pour your heart out in music and rock the fuck out while doing so. It did for my generation what Sunny Day Real Estate and Jawbreaker did a decade earlier, and what bands like Cloud Nothings and Touche Amore are doing for kids right now. I haven't really thrown on TAYF in recent years, but it was reissued in 2011 and I'm listening to that reissue on Spotify as we speak and remembering that I know every word to this album and it's got a huge load of nostalgic value for me and a countless amount of others.

I mention this because Taking Back Sunday have announced that they'll be taking Tell All Your Friends on a 10th anniversary tour this fall, performing the album in full at a number of venues across the US throughout October and November. The tour culminates with a NYC show on November 23 at Terminal 5, and it also hits Sayreville, NJ on November 16 at Starland Ballroom. Tickets for both NYC area shows go on sale Friday (8/10) at noon. Bayside supports on all dates.

A list of all dates, videos from the album, and a spotify stream are below.

Quicksand, Texas is the Reason, and now classic Taking Back Sunday... Emo / Post-Hardcore is ALIVE AND WELL... Albeit, just for the next three months...

Back in 2002 when listening to this music was fun!

Aren't all the emo kids hipsters now?

hahaha, so, so bad.

Would never have thought I'd see a post about Taking Back Sunday on Brooklynvegan.

Back in 2002 when there was no BV comment section!

All would be more right with the world if all those LI high schoolers were into Quicksand as opposed to Taking Back Sunday.

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 2:35 PM

This is a joke, right? I mean, you're not serious, right? Even when I was FIFTEEN I knew what absolute shit this was.

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 2:37 PM

"what Sunny Day Real Estate and Jawbreaker did a decade earlier"... but do you really think this was .001% as good as SDRE were?

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 2:49 PM

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 2:59 PM

kissable and quiet

I will be at this show because I am all of those things.

How popular is this band? Are we talking 4x face?

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 3:14 PM

This band is the most embarrassing thing to ever come out of Long Island.

Think about that.

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 3:32 PM

ya'll embarrassing yourselves by saying you used to be into this

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 3:39 PM

3:32 - actually, your accents are pretty embarrassing too.

Emo needs to die

Posted by Sam | August 6, 2012 3:52 PM

Sad that people would even admit to being excited about this. About as cool as New Found Glory, oh wait...you guys probably like them too.

If you meet a girl who was raised in long island... Run like hell!

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 4:05 PM

Long Island >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Californi-yah (or wherever the hell most of the BV trendies initially came from)

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 4:22 PM

First of all this term "Trendy" is retarded.
I don't even know what it means.

And I would also like to add that as a straight man who has been with girls from all over this country, I assure you that the girls from long island are at the bottom of the barrel.

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 4:34 PM

someone said it already, This stuff was absolute shit even when I was fifteen.

Posted by NO! | August 6, 2012 4:40 PM

4:34 is a LADIES' MAN!!!! woo-hooo. Dude - are you in the Beach Boys?

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 4:52 PM

4:34 Is probably from South Jersey.

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 4:57 PM

Thank you so much for posting this news!

I agree completely. Along with Brand New and Thursday these guys used to make some genuinely compelling music.

Will definitely be at the show in SF.

3:56, and if we do, are you gonna tell us we'd be better off dead?

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 6:10 PM

what do you BV commenters listened to before they became hipsters?

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 7:57 PM

^ we listened to food processors.

This is the soundtrack for teenagers that have not learned that they are not the center of the universe.

Fuck this band. Braid on Thursday!

"It did for my generation what Sunny Day Real Estate and Jawbreaker did a decade earlier, and what bands like Cloud Nothings and Touche Amore are doing for kids right now."

Well said. This has immense nostalgic value for me as well, and I will be there for sure.

My sister likes Taking Back Sunday. She always plays it loud in the house and you know what it kinda grew on me. I may even see a contest of them with her sometime.
