We've been asking artists to send us lists of their favorite albums of 2016, and our latest list is from Taking Back Sunday, specifically from frontman Adam Lazzara and backing vocalist/guitarist John Nolan. We're pretty sure this the only artist list we've seen that includes the artist's own album on the list (the heartland rock-inspired Tidal Wave), but it otherwise has Bon Iver, Leonard Cohen, Sturgill Simpson, Band of Horses, Explosions in the Sky, Kevin Devine, and more. It also has Chance the Rapper's Coloring Book at #1 and "That Chance The Rapper song John Showed Me" is #6. Check out their whole list below.

TBS have a bunch of tour dates coming up, including their annual holiday shows this weekend at NJ's Starland Ballroom on December 16 & 17. The main shows are sold out, but the Saturday afternoon pop-up shop (acoustic performance included) is still on sale. Updated dates are listed below.
