Taking Back Sunday

Taking Back Sunday have announced UK and Ireland tour dates next summer as part of celebrations for their 20th anniversary as a band. They are also set to release a new compilation, titled ’20’, on 11 Jan. As well as tracks from all seven of their albums, there will be two brand new songs, including new single ‘All Ready To Go’.

“This song is a great example of how in tune we have become with one another, our collective musical instincts”, says frontman Adam Lazzara of the single. “It was an idea Mark and Shaun laid the bones down for in New York and then sent them down to Charlotte, where John and I continued to arrange and add our individual contributions. This made for a great demo and a fair amount of time for everyone to sit with it before we all were able to get in the studio together and hash out the different parts and details with one another”.

“It sounds like a lot when I say it like that”, he goes on. “But the process itself was a cohesive and relatively quick one. Having the space to live and breathe with the idea before all coming together to shape it, and knowing where we can lean on one another as the song progresses is both insightful and exciting to all of us. It’s one of my favourite parts of being in Taking Back Sunday”.
