New Taking Back Sunday Bonus Track Online- “Didn’t See That Coming”

If you want to be one of the first to hear a bonus track taken from Taking Back Sunday’s latest release, ‘New Again’ then you can HERE where some lucky chap has been kind enough to stream it for you. Not sure how long this link will stay active though, but we’ll update it as soon as we can.

For those of you not yet in the know, Taking Back Sunday’s fourth studio album, ‘New Again’ hit stores worldwide yesterday (and it is probably their best work to date). If you want to try before you buy, as we previously reported TBS are now very generously streaming the full album.

Taking Back Sunday Stream ‘New Again’ In Full


If you can’t wait the full five days before ‘New Again’ is released to the world, then Taking Back Sunday have you covered. The Long Island quintet are streaming their fourth studio album in full on their Official Myspace Page, so get ahead of the curve and be one of the first tohave a listen.

In other news,TBS have also been added to the envious bill of bands set to support Blink 182 on their mammouth tour of the US this summer, full dates can be found HERE.

What are your thoughts on ‘New Again’, on first listen we’re definitely not disappointed, ‘Everything Must Go’ has been a stand out from the start and has single written all over it. It’s certainly a progression from ‘Louder Now’ and fans wanting the bands to go back to the sounds of album one and two will probably be disappointed, for the rest of the world it seems like TBS have given us another catchy as hell album with a few surprises.

Blink 182 Post Full America Tour Dates & Support From FOB, TBS, Weezer & Panic

As previously reported, Blink 182 have broken their silence and announced that they will be touring across America this summer, with Fall Out Boy, Weezer, Taking Back Sunday, Panic At The Disco, All American Rejects, Asher Roth and Chester French in tow.

Following last week’s announcement, the Blink camp has posted the full list of dates that they will be hitting this Summer, starting in July and ending in October.

Check out the post below:

” If it hadn’t been for drummer Travis Barker’s near-fatal airplane crash last year, Blink-182 might not be touring this summer.

But after a five-year hiatus, Blink-182 members Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Tom DeLonge will embark on a nearly 50-date North American arena and amphitheater tour, beginning July 24 at the Joint in Las Vegas, and wrapping Oct. 3 at the Borgata Events Center in Atlantic City, N.J

Tickets for the tour go on sale May 30 at Presenting sponsors of trek include T-Mobile Sidekick LX, State Farm Insurance and MySpace.

Beyond October, Blink-182 has offers to play Australia’s Big Day Out and other European music festivals in 2010, according to Devoe. “That’s what I’m hoping is going to happen,” the manager says. “And in between these tours is when they’re going to be working on an album.”

Blink-182 doesn’t plan to route another North American tour until the band releases a new album, Devoe says. He notes that Blink-182 can’t work as quickly as it used to because the band members have family obligations and some live in different cities.

Watch Taking Back Sunday’s “Sink Into Me” Video!

MTV have debuted the brand new video for Taking Back Sunday’s upcoming single “Sink Into Me”. The song is taken from the band’s fourth studio album, “New Again” which will be hitting shores on June 2nd.

The video, which was filmed in New York last month, features the band playing to a crowd and writhing around in mud (as you do). This is also the first official video to feature  Matt Fazzi on guitar, who has been playing as Fred Mascherino’s replacement since 2007.

You can catch the video from the US at: and at for the rest of the world.
What are your thoughts on the song/video?

Taking Back Sunday’s “Sink Into Me” And “New Again” Online

Taking Back Sunday fans are being treated to some of the first heard samples of what upcoming effort, “New Again” will sound like before it drops on 2nd June.

Both new single “Sink Into Me“, which was released to itunes this week and album title track “New Again” have been posted online for your hearing pleasure. And if those don’t quench your thirst for new Taking Back Sunday singing about being new then have a track-by-track review of the album and based on their musings we’d say you should be pretty damn excited.

We have to say that although “Sink Into Me” doesn’t exactly blow us away on first listen, “New Again” which sounds distinctly Louder Now-esque certainly has us craving for 11 more songs of the same ilk.

Do the new songs live up to your expectations?
