Taking Back Sunday announce intimate fall tour

With the release of a new album in the near future, Taking Back Sunday has announced plans to hit the road in support of it. On Wednesday (July 20), the Long Island-based band took to social media to announce the upcoming trek. “Decided to do the next tour in smaller clubs. Because there are no rules,” the group posted on Twitter.

The intimate venues for the upcoming tour mirrors what frontman Adam Lazzara has stated in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Our idea is to go to the smallest clubs we can go to. We’d like to debut this record as honestly as we can and what better way to do that in a small club?” The fall tour which has been named the “Tidal Wave Tour” (named after the new album), is set to kick off on Sept. 17 at The Waiting Room in Omaha, NE and wrap up on Oct. 23 at Slim’s in San Francisco.

You Blew It! will support TBS for all the stop with the exception of Oct. 8 and Oct. 9 which will find Loose Talk filling in for them. Mammoth Indigo will open the shows from Oct. 5 to Oct. 11. Tickets for the tour will go on sale beginning this Thursday, July 21.

The complete list of tour stops can be seen below.

Tidal Wave is set to be released on Sept. 16 through Hopeless Records. This record will be the follow-up to 2014’s Happiness Is.

Say Anything Announce New Album, Tour


Say Anything have announced they will be releasing a new album this early Summer. The album will be titled Hebrews and is set to be released on June 10th through Equal Vision Records.

In support of the new album, the band will also be heading out on a North american tour beginning on June 13th in Dallas at the Granada Theater and will travel around the country until it wraps up on July 27 in Tempe, AZ at The Marquee. The Front Bottoms, The So So Glos, and You Blew It! will also be heading out on the tour as supporting acts.

Fans have now been given an option to add a signed CD or vinyl to their pre-sale ticket purchase for $9.00 for the CD or $14.00 for the vinyl. If fans do chose to add Hebrews to their ticket purchase, they will receive a digital download of the record on the release date from Equal Vision and still be able to pickup the physical copy of the album from the merchandise table at the tour stop.

Cool huh? All those who chose that option need to do is show their ID as well as the receipt of the purchase. This is reportedly just one of a few unique bundle options that will be offered. Full tour dates for the tour can be found below.
