Long-standing emo rockers Taking Back Sunday, comprised of John Nolan, Adam Lazzara, Shaun Cooper, and Mark O’Connell, have unveiled their eagerly awaited eighth studio album titled ‘152‘. Scheduled for release on October 27 via Fantasy Records, this is the band’s first full-length album since ‘Tidal Wave‘ in 2016. The title ‘152‘ draws inspiration from a segment of the North Carolina road frequented by the band during their teenage years.

Fans can indulge in the album’s second new trackS’old“, a potent proclamation of dedication and responsibility.

Speaking about ‘152’, Taking Back Sunday remarked, “The album exudes more hope and brightness than we recognized amidst its creation. We’ve matured alongside our fans, encountering parallel experiences, and this album hopes to resonate with those shared feelings.”

152‘ was produced by Tushar Apte, introduced to the band via a shared project with DJ Steve Aoki, and mixed by the accomplished Neal Avron. The album, comprising 10 deep and captivating tracks, embodies a renewed ambition and purpose, shaped by global uncertainties and a long hiatus.

Lazzara expressed the album’s surprises, saying, “Even after two decades, the band’s dynamics remain unpredictable, keeping the creation process exhilarating.” O’Connell added that their songwriting aims to evoke emotion in the listener, believing they’ve accomplished this with ‘152’.

The album showcases a diverse range of themes, from reconnection in “Amphetamine Smiles”, adult responsibility in “S’old“, to the introspective “Quit Trying” which emphasizes self-acceptance. A continuous theme of appreciation, thankfulness, and optimism runs throughout ‘152‘.
