Fans of Taking Back Sunday can now rejoice because the band have confirmed that their new album will be coming out sooner than later.

Last year, the band has posted pictures on Instagram from inside the studio beginning the talks that a new band would be in the hands of fans by the end of the year. That did not exactly happen, but the band had announced that new songs were on their way eventually giving to us the lead single from the album, “Flicker, Fade.”

Yesterday afternoon, the band once again took to their Instagram page an uploaded a picture of what looked like a paw of a creature and eventually wrote on Facebook that “some good and bad guessing going on right now” about it. Turns out, the paw was the paw of a panther which is the cover art for their upcoming new album, Happiness Is…

Alongside the cover art for the album the band also revealed that it will be released on March 18th through Hopeless Records. The studio version of “Flicker, Fade” is now available through iTunes as well as the pre-order for it. The full tracklist and cover art for the upcoming album can be seen below right after the stream of “Flicker, Fade”

Listen to Taking Back Sunday’s New Song

Earlier this year, Taking Back Sunday announced to fans that they were currently working on a new album on Twitter.

Yesterday, the band posted a live video which featured one of their new songs titled, “Flicker Fade.” Apparently, after seeing so many cellphone videos of the sang, the band decided to just release an unofficial-official video of the song.

“We’re glad people are so enthusiastic and want to share the music from their point of view and we thought it would also be nice to see it and hear it from this perspective,” bassist Shaun Cooper said in response to the “leaked” song.

The video was recorded during their show at the reopened Starland Ballroom In New Jersey. The concert venue had previously been closed due to Hurricane Sandy’s destruction of the venue. The band, who hail from Amityville, N.Y., were granted the honor of playing the venue during its first week of reopening.

“Flicker Fade” is the first song to be “leaked” from their upcoming sixth album which they were finishing up in the studio. The album, which still doesn’t have a name, is due out sometime in the Spring of 2014 through Hopeless Records.

Check out the new song below and tell us what you think of the new TBS.

Taking Back Sunday’s fall tour starts Friday, October 11 in Clifton Park, N.Y., and goes all the way through to November 7 at Emporium in Long Island.
