“After seven years I’m sad to announce that I will no longer be playing the bass with Taking Back Sunday. I would like to thank Adam, Eddie and Mark for giving me this amazing opportunity that changed my life. I am proud of the music we made together and cherished every moment of it. And to Taking Back Sunday fans, there isn’t anything I can say that will express the way I feel toward you. It’s literally been a dream come true and you were the cast of that dream. I am happy to have met and befriended so many of you. I will miss you all.”
-Rubano

“To everyone in the TBS family, it is with great sadness I am announcing today that I am no longer a part of Taking Back Sunday. The last 2 years with Taking Back Sunday have been beyond a dream come true, from touring and playing with bands that I really admire, to playing new places all around the world, to meeting and working with so many wonderful people along the way. It’s something that I never once took for granted and that I will never forget. I want to thank Eddie, Matt, Adam and Mark for giving me the chance to play and make music with them, if even for a short while. We’ve accomplished a lot in a short time that I will forever be proud of. Thanks to everyone involved for making this such a beautiful experience for me, especially YOU, the fans. You have been so warm and receptive to me since I joined and for this I am forever grateful. As for me, I will continue on with my own music and I hope to see some of your smiling faces around soon.

With all my love,
Matthew Fazzi”

Thank you for your years, tears and sacrifices gentlemen.

    Okay well I am going to cry myself to sleep tonight…
    Matt Rubano (and Adam- no offense) is/are my favorite member/s of my favorite band in the world and now I seriously don’t know what to think anymore. Then Matt Fazzi leaves and possibly John and Shaun are back?!!?! Is it roller coaster day for my emotions?
    How long do you think this was planned because Matt R and Fazz weren’t in the video where Adam wants to hang out with Anberlin’s most handsome singer, ya know?
    I really wish TBS would EXPLAIN a few things I’m going crazy over here….

    All I know is if TBS turns into Straylight Run I will cut someone.

    im SUPER STOKED for the new line-up…but it seems rather bittersweet..if the matt’s aren’t in the band anymore, do you think they’d join my band? or another pretty awesome band? i love them and think they have great talent so they better keep playing and i better keep hearing about them on the radio!!!
