Taking Back Sunday announce extensive 20th anniversary tour, compilation album for 2019

For fans of Taking Back Sunday, it may be a little surprising to sit down and realize that one of your favorite bands is turning 20 years old. With such a momentous occasion in the near future, is it any wonder why the five-piece has decided to go big in celebrating their platinum anniversary? On Tuesday (Oct. 9), the Long Island-founded band announced not only a massive tour for 2019, but also plans to release a career retrospective compilation album.

The upcoming tour will find the band performing in North America, South America, Australia, and Asia with more dates to be announced. Every show on the newly announced excursion will find the group performing two albums in full; their debut record, 2002’s Tell All Your Friends, while the second album will be a tossup between 2004’s Where You Want to Be or 2006’s Louder Now.

According to the band, the second album will be chosen via a coin toss. However, the band also notes that a coin toss will only happen if they are playing two consecutive gigs at the same venue. If the band’s schedule only finds them performing one show at a venue, that setlist will include Tell All Your Friends in full as well as some fan-favorite tunes.

The massive tour will begin in Australia on Jan. 9 at HQ in Adelaide and conclude several months later on May 5 with a two-night engagement at the House of Blues in Las Vegas. Pre-sale tickets for the South American leg are currently available while pre-sale tickets for the Australia stops will begin on Friday, Oct. 12. Pre-sale tickets for the North American leg will go on sale a week later on Oct. 19.

“It feels strange to say out loud…2019 marks 20 years since I joined Taking Back Sunday and my life changed forever,” singer Adam Lazzara says in a press release. “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. We hope you can join us for what is sure to be an experience to remember.”

Prior to the huge anniversary tour, the group will perform at the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey for their annual holiday shows. The shows will take place on Dec. 14 and 15 with tickets for the shows already on sale.

In addition to the huge world tour, Taking Back Sunday has also confirmed plans to release a compilation album in early 2019. Titled Twenty, the record is due out Jan. 20 through Craft Recordings. The 21-track album will include songs from the band’s seven full-length albums. Pre-orders for the compilation album will go on sale beginning Oct. 30.

Silverstein announce ‘When Broken is Easily Fixed’ 15th anniversary tour

It’s been 15 years since Silverstein released their debut album, When Broken is Easily Fixed, and now the group is ready to take the album back on the road. On Tuesday (July 31), the Canadian band announced plans to hit the touring circuit to celebrate the record’s crystal anniversary. Taking to social media, the band revealed their upcoming tour itinerary which will find them playing venues throughout the months of November and December across the United States and Canada.

The When Broken is Easily Fixed 15th anniversary tour will begin on Nov. 9 at the Majestic in Detroit and conclude a month and a half later on Dec. 15 in their “hometown” of Toronto, Ontario. Hawthorne Heights, As Cities Burn, and Capstan have been confirmed as Silverstein’s special guests for the complete excursion. According to the official poster for the upcoming trek, Silverstein will perform two sets; When Broken is Easily Fixed in full and a mix of their greatest hits.

General tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday, Aug. 3 on the band’s website.

Earlier this week, the band posted a cryptic message on social media. The post contained a link and two emojis; a robot head and a broken heart. Fans were quick to connect the dots when they realized the emojis were a direct reference to the album’s cover art while the link was just the album’s title with dot-com added at the end.

When Broken is Easily Fixed was released in May of 2003 through Victory Records. The album was re-released in September of 2004 with a DVD and two bonus tracks (“Friends in Fall River” and “Forever and a Day”). The ten-track album includes “Smashed into Pieces” and “Giving Up.”

Currently, Silverstein is in the midst of wrapping up their time on the final Vans Warped Tour. The group released their ninth studio album, Dead Reflection, last July.

Sum 41 announce ‘Does This Look Infected?’ 15-year anniversary tour

Sum 41 have been a little quiet since they released their last studio album 13 Voices, but don’t expect that to last long. On Tuesday (Feb. 13), the Canadian band announced plans to hit the road this spring to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of their sophomore album, Does This Look Infected? The upcoming tour will kick off on April 27 at the Warfield in San Francisco and wrap up a month later on May 26 at the Wiltern in Los Angeles.

“This year was meant to be spent working on new music and I hadn’t even realized that it was the 15-year anniversary of Does This Look Infected?,” Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley said in a press release.

“Out of nowhere, we started to receive messages from fans asking us to do another DTLI anniversary tour…and when the fans call, we go. This time around is going to be even more special because we have Dave ‘Brown Sound’ Baksh with us! So back by popular demand, we’ll see you on the road this April!”

Joining the pop-punk outfit during the full excursion will be fellow Canadian band Seaway and California outfit Super Whatevr.

VIP packages for the tour will go on sale beginning this Wednesday, Feb. 14 while general ticket sales will go on sale beginning this Friday, Feb. 16, at 10 a.m. local time.

Does This Look Infected? was released in November of 2002 and produced such hits as “Still Waiting,” “The Hell Song” and “Over My Head (Better Off Dead).” The album has been certified platinum in Canada and Japan, silver in the United Kingdom, and gold in the United States.

For those who grew up in the hey-day of pop-punk in the 2000s, it’s hard t believe that it wasn’t just yesterday that we were rocking to old-school Good Charlotte and Blink-182. On Tuesday (Jan. 10), Simple Plan made us all feel a little bit older when they announced plan to hit the road in the spring to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of their debut record, No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls. Not only will they be celebrating the momentous occasion, they will also play the album in full as well as some fan-favorites.

“It’s hard to believe that this year, we will be celebrating the 15th anniversary of our debut album, No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls,” the band write in a letter to fans. “To commemorate this very special milestone, we are extremely excited to announce that we will be heading out on tour performing our entire first album all over the US.”

The tour will kick off on March 19 at Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. As pointed out by the band, March 19 is the exact date that the album was released in 2002. “Even cooler, the tour kicks off on March 19th, the exact date the album came out, back in 2002.”

The month-long tour will conclude on April 15 at the Fillmore in San Francisco. Florida-founded Set It Off and fellow Canadians Seaway will join Simple Plan for the full excursion. Tickets for the shows will go on sale beginning this Friday, Jan. 10.

No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls helped launch Simple Plan into the mainstream and consists of fan-favorites likes “I’d Do Anything,” “I’m Just a Kid,” and “Addicted.” Last year, the Canadian band released their fifth studio album, Taking One for the Team, and toured non-stop behind it.

New Found Glory announces ’20 Years of Pop-Punk’ tour

image

On Wednesday (Dec. 7), New Found Glory began to post their past album’s cover art on social media which was met with some confusion over what it meant. On Thursday (Dec. 8), the Florida-founded band clarified what the posts meant when they announced a massive 20th anniversary tour. To celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band, New Found Glory will hit the road in mid-2017 to honor the major moment.

The tour which has been named the “20 Years of Pop-Punk” tour is set to kick off on March 22 at the Soundstage in Baltimore and  wrap up a month and a half later on May 12 at Revolution Live in the band’s hometown(ish) of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. During the excursion, the band will play selected albums in full. Those records include everything from 1999’s Nothing Gold Can Stay to 2009’s Not Without A Fight.

“‘You’ll never get anywhere,’ ‘sophomore slump,’ ‘It’s a trend that will pass,’ ‘your ship will sink.’ Well it’s been 20 years. Wondering what the voices say now?” the band’s post on their website reads.  “Luckily there was and still is only two voices we listen to. The passion inside of us and our loyal fans! This tour is for both. We can’t wait to play through all our albums recorded before 2010 and revisit some venues across the U.S. that we have great memories playing at. Thank you for all the years of love and support. Somehow it still feels like the beginning!”

The massive 20th anniversary tour comes after the band announced that their 2017 would include a brand new album. Their last album, Resurrection, was released in 2014 with a re-issue titled Resurrection: Ascension debuting almost a year later in 2015.
