Taking Back Sunday have announced that the first phase of recording for their as-yet-untitled sixth album has begun. 

Check out a tweet from the band, below.

The band formally announced that they were writing earlier this year. No title or timeframe for record has yet been disclosed. According to the group, they're not likely to self-release the album, as they opted to do with their upcoming TAYF10 Acoustic film and record, but they're “still figuring out” the specifics.

Though this marks Taking Back Sunday's sixth album overall, it will be the third with its current lineup, making John Nolan the first co-vocalist/guitarist to appear on more than two of band's releases. The current, Tell All Your Friends-era lineup reunited in 2010, and released a self-titled album in 2011.
