Want to know what Matt Rubano listens to on his ipod? Matt is dj-ing some of his fav tunes at blip.fm. TBS are the featured DJ’s, so go listen to the songs they pick.

Also, we will be holding a contest later in the day revolving around winning Transformers swag, but in the meantime you can stream the album here before its tomorrow release date.

And for those who are unaware, Adam got suckerpunched after the Philly show the other night and broke his nose. The guy(s) were caught and went to jail.

TBS & Denny’s Wade

June 10th, 2009

Taking Back Sunday now have one of the top ten albums in the country with their new CD, New Again, and kindly took time out of their busy schedule to meet their #1 fan. . . Wade, the infamous Denny’s Allnighter t-rex. Yes, t-rex:

(click to enlarge)

Still clad in the band’s t-shirt, Wade celebrated the only way he knows how – with late night eats at Denny’s. Unfortunately for him, some foods are simply more small-arm-friendly than others. Check out what happened in this exclusive new webisode in the Denny’s Allnighter series to follow up the national television spot :

Everything Must Go tomorrow

May 15th, 2009

We are so grateful to those of you who came out to hang out with us and preview songs from NEW AGAIN at our playback parties that we decided to put up one of the other new songs that got a lot of great feedback. The song is called “Everything Must Go” and it’s definitely one of our favorites too. We know some of you have heard cell phone – you tube recordings of it when we played it live a few times so head to myspace.com/takingbacksunday and hear a message from Adam along with the real deal. We hope you like it. Just wanted to say that there are still more surprises coming from New Again. There are a lot of different sounds on it, same as all of the previous records. Can’t wait for you to hear the whole thing!

You can watch a vid of Adam/Matt announcing the song ‘Capital M-E’ is about Fred HERE
