Taking Back Sunday for UK winter tour

Taking Back Sunday have confirmed they'll return to the UK in December for a run of shows.

Frontman Adam Lazzara says in the short video below: “I just want to let you know we’re going to be there in December, on tour, coming to a city near you. You’re welcome – it’s going to be awesome. Come on out.”

The band recently launched their sixth album, Happiness Is, of which Lazzara said: “I tried to be a little more loose; I was more focused on being myself than trying to sound perfect or anything. We played around a lot with arranging the harmonies and playing with layers, and I think that makes these songs a lot more rich.”

Tickets go on sale this Friday (May 9) at 9am. Special guests will be announced in due course.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
