Posts Tagged ‘Taking Back Sunday’

Rumours have been spreading like wildfire. Could it be? Has the ‘Tell All Your Friends’ era Taking Back Sunday been reborn? Well, it looks very bloody likely.

Just yesterday, Matt Rubano and Matthew Fazzi both announced that they were leaving TBS, and the identities of  their replacements seem quite obvious upon visiting the official TBS site. This picture shows former members John Nolan and Shaun Cooper with the three remaining members of the line-up. To add further credibility to already strong evidence, John Nolan has been banging on about it all in cryptic Facebook posts (for example: “Hey everyone, I have a big announcement”; “I know, big news, right?”).

I don’t know about you, but this is all music to my recently sad ears. After the disbanding of Straylight Run, I was absolutely gutted. But even the possibility of a TBS album that could rival ‘Tell All Your Friends’ has really lifted my spirits. If I’m being honest, I don’t think TBS has made a good album since their full-length debut, and I chalked that up to John’s absence. Hopefully he will carry over his prolific writing to TBS and we’ll get a grown-up version of a band I thought I’d lost long ago.
