It’s been seven years since Taking Back Sunday dropped their last studio album Tidal Wave, and its follow-up is finally on the way. The New York-based rock band announced the release of their highly-anticipated eighth studio album 152.
In an official statement announcing their new LP, Taking Back Sunday promised this album offers a lot more hope and light than they’ve expected while putting it together, and they’re hoping their new songs will help people feel less alone.
“We’ve been fortunate enough, through our music, to grow up with a lot of people going through the same things at the same time, and probably feeling the same way. Our hope is that you’re able to find a little bit of yourself in this new collection of songs,” said the band in a statement.
The bulk of 152 was written during the pandemic, and the band also said it was inspired by the vast period of uncertainty that blanketed the world in recent years and the emotions they faced during those times.
Taking Back Sunday gave us a taste of things to come with the new single “S’old”, one of the ten tracks set to be featured on their new LP. 152 will come out on October 27, and it will feature the previously released single “The One”.
