Taking Back Sunday is riding high on the strength of its new self-titled album, which features the lineup that got everyone telling all their friends about the alt-punks in the first place.
We spoke to bassist Shaun Cooper a few months ago, and he was ecstatic about re-forming with frontman Adam Lazzara, guitarists John Nolan and Eddie Reyes, and drummer Mark O'Connell. "I think all of us felt reinvigorated," he said.
"We've had so many ups and downs separately that getting back together
and feeling that energy again that we have within the five of us was a
great thing. We all get along now, which is nice."
On Saturday, Coca-Cola presents: Taking Back Sunday -- along with Thursday, We Are the In Crowd, and Colour Revolt -- performs at Revolution, and we have a pair of tickets and a prize pack featuring the self-titled CD, a T-shirt, and a hoodie to give away.
Now, the process to win these tickets isn't difficult. It's not even
going to take you longer than it did to read this blog. Simply head to
the County Grind Facebook page, like it, and post a link to your favorite Taking Back Sunday song. The new cat-infested video for "Faith (Let You Down)" is embedded below to get you in the mood:
