Taking Back Sunday release first song from upcoming album

March 28 2011, 10:33 PM EDT By Tim Karan

Taking Back Sunday have posted "El Paso," the first new song from the band's upcoming self-titled full-length due this summer. This is the first new music from TBS since bringing back original members John Nolan (guitar/vocals) and Shaun Cooper (bass). The pair left Taking Back Sunday in 2003 and formed Straylight Run, who recently disbanded.

Frontman Adam Lazzara says, "We have been waiting ever so patiently to share new music with everyone. ’El Paso’ was one of the first songs written for our new record and is by far the heaviest our band has ever ventured.   We spent a few weeks at the Sonic Ranch in El Paso, TX while writing and i feel this song in particular really embodies both the mood of the environment we were in down there and the mood we were in about being back together again and writing new music.  Hence the title, ‘El Paso.’  Be prepared for some punishing goodness, ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seatbelts.”

Listen to the song and let us know what you think!
