Taking Back Sunday Share New Single "Amphetamine Smile"

 


Today, Taking Back Sunday: John Nolan (lead guitar, piano, vocals), Adam Lazzara (lead vocals), Shaun Cooper (bass) and Mark O’Connell (drums) shared “Amphetamine Smiles,” the third preview track from their forthcoming new album 152, due October 27, 2023, via Fantasy. The new track, a passionate call for reconnection that’s as much about the band themselves as it is the world at-large, exemplifies the stirring reassurance that make Taking Back Sunday so special. Listen to “Amphetamine Smiles” HERE. This morning, fans can tune-in HERE for special livestream Q&A with Taking Back Sunday at 8:45AM PT/11:45AM ET, 15-minutes prior to the worldwide premiere of the “Amphetamine Smiles” official video at 9:00AM PT/12noon ET/5pm GMT.




“You could document the writing, arranging, and recording of “Amphetamine Smiles,” but there’s no way to explain how it came together,” said John Nolan. “It’s the product of some kind of magic.”




To celebrate the release of 152, the band’s first new album in seven years, Taking Back Sunday has just announced a series of special, intimate album release shows in the US: November 6 at Lodge Room in Los Angeles, November 9 at Eastside Bowl in Nashville, and November 13 at Bowery Ballroom in NYC. On sale begins Friday, September 29 at 10:00AM local time. For more information, visit: www.takingbacksunday.com. In addition, the band also announced the 9th Annual Taking Back Sunday Holiday Spectacular at Mulcahy’s Pub and Concert Hall in Wantagh, NY December 13 and 14, and Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on December 15 and 16. Tickets are on sale now.




Produced by Tushar Apte (whom the band met through a mutual collaboration with noted DJ Steve Aoki) and mixed by Neal Avron (Twenty One Pilots, Bleachers), 152, the long-awaited LP features 10 intensely vulnerable and absorbing new tracks all delivered with fresh ambition and newfound purpose. Inspired by the long layoff and the cloud of uncertainty that blanketed the world (and music industry) these past few years, 152 stands among the most genuinely reflective and emotionally pure efforts of Taking Back Sunday’s illustrious career. Pre-order 152: HERE.




From the album’s intricate riffs and anthemic vocals to its elegantly warm synths and economical string arrangements, the quartet work-shopped these new tracks like never before. Previously released single, "S'old," struggles with the obligations of adult responsibility and acceptance, "The One," (also previously released) is a far-reaching anthem of love and brotherhood, “Keep Going,” tracks the self-defeating darkness of betrayal, and “Quit Trying,” is wrapped with ‘can’t run from who you are’ self-awareness. All through 152, the consistent thread is one of generosity, gratitude and ultimately, hope.

"S'old"




"The One"

The band combines existential lyrics about the human experience with blistering instrumentation. The group follows the lead of bands such as Tool and Primus by creating an entire universe of sound and light for fans to explore. The band teamed with renowned producer Kane Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment, Ozzy Osbourne, Papa Roach) on the EP and new focus track ‘ Joke ”. Vocalist Caesar says of ‘Joke’: “The song reflects the illusory nature of the self, both in cyberspace and the physical world. No one is entirely what they may think or claim to be, even the most insightful among us. Moreover, today's technological trends and social platforms seem to have amplified our tendency toward self-delusion." He continues: "Maintaining a healthy sense of humility and open-mindedness can be challenging under more traditio
