Taking Back Sunday have released their new album, Happiness Is via Hopeless Records produced by Marc Jacob Hudson (Saves The Day, The Swellers) and Mike Sapone (Brand New, O’Brother). Happiness Is, written over a two-year period with no involvement from a label for the first time since 2002’s debut Tell All Your Friends, drips with the spirit of resilience and innovation. Taking Back Sunday recently released a video for single “Stood A Chance”, here: http://bit.ly/1iWReuo.

Taking Back Sunday is a band that truly needs no introduction. Since forming in Long Island in 1999, they have sold millions of albums, evolved from a young punk act into seasoned songwriters and continued to forge a successful career. As you can guess from the title, the album addresses some heady concepts, but it simultaneously showcases a new musical and conceptual leap for this collection of musicians with varied influences that is certain to endear them to fans both new and old. This is the group’s second album since reviving the classic lineup of vocalist Adam Lazzara, guitarist/vocalist John Nolan, guitarist Eddie Reyes, bassist Shaun Cooper and drummer Mark O’Connell.

The band is currently on the road with The Used for a North American Co-Headlining tour. Dates are selling out well in advance for this run with 50% of the shows already sold out including 3 New York Dates! The band has also announced additional headlining dates during the run. These select dates will be with Tonight Alive and Sleepwave. To purchase tickets, please visit: www.takingbacksunday.com.
