Taking Back Sunday has announced a new string of European dates for their 2019 worldwide tour. As part of a year-long fête celebrating the band’s 20th anniversary, the tour will be hitting the U.K., Ireland, Netherlands and Germany. Tickets go on sale now.
In conjunction with the tour and milestone anniversary, Taking Back Sunday are releasing a career-spanning compilation titled Twenty. The 21 song collection is set for release via Craft Recordings on January 11th on CD and 2 LP. It comprises tracks from all seven of their full-length albums, in addition to two new songs. The single, “All Ready To Go,” is available now to stream or download as an instant grat.
On the process of recording “All Ready To Go,” singer Adam Lazzara reflects, “This song is a great example of how in tune we have become with one another, our collective musical instincts. 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, 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 favorite parts of being in Taking Back Sunday.”
