Taking Back Sunday is celebrating their 20th anniversary in a major way, announcing plans for a massive world tour that will see the alt rockers hit stages across the US early next year!

The 35-date North American trek gets started on January 29 in Anchorage, Alaska, stopping in Honolulu, HI for a two-day stint before the guys take off to Asia and South America for a run of dates through mid-March.

TBS returns stateside March 25, kicking off their six-week run with a show in Houston, TX. Stops will include cities like Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Portland and Denver before wrapping up with a pair of shows in Las Vegas on May 4-5.

“It feels strange to say out loud… 2019 marks 20 years since I joined Taking Back Sunday and my life changed forever,” front man Adam Lazzara says. “So, next year we will be traveling the world to celebrate the amazing brotherhood, music and life we have created together over the past 20 years.”

The anniversary tour will see TBS playing their first three albums in full, including their debut, Tell All Your Friends. The band will either play their second album Where You Want To Be or third album Louder Now in their entirety for cities where they have back-to-back dates scheduled, flipping a coin to make the big decision and keeping fans on their toes.

The celebration doesn’t end there, though, with TBS also announcing the release of a compilation album titled Twenty. The album will be retrospective of the group’s career, featuring tracks from all seven of their full-length albums over the years.

Twenty is due for release on January 11.


Who Is Taking Back Sunday?


Taking Back Sunday first emerged in 1999 from Amityville, NY. Following the release of a five-song demo and a year’s worth of touring alongside alt-rock acts including Alkaline Trio and At The Drive-In, TBS signed with a record company and went on to release their debut album Tell All Your Friends in 2002. Tell All Your Friends put TBS on the map with a sound that layered emotional vocals and dual guitars, blending pop songwriting elements with a classic hard rock sound.

A second album, Where You Want to Be, followed in 2004 debuting at the number three spot on the Billboard 200 and establishing the group as a lead force in the new wave of commercial emo bands. Their breakout, however, wouldn’t come until the release of their third album Louder Now in 2006. The album spawned the massive hit single “MakeDamnSure,” selling over 900,000 copies and peaking at the number two spot on the Billboard 200. “MakeDamnSure” is their most successful single to date.

In the years since their breakthrough success, TBS has dropped four more full-length albums, including Top 20 releases New Again (2009), Taking Back Sunday (2011), Happiness Is (2014), and the Top 40 hit Tidal Wave (2016). Despite enduring several lineup changes, the group has successfully maintained a loyal fanbase over the course of their 20-year career. The current lineup includes members from the band’s original Tell All Your Friends era, including guitarist John Nolan, vocalist Adam Lazzara, drummer Mark O’Connell, and bassist Shaun Cooper.
