“During this process we've been discovering and surprising ourselves in realizing how good of a band we've become. Not to go full Kanye but none of us can believe, when we're listening back during tracking, that this is our band. It's incredible. The timing also worked perfectly, we'll basically be going straight from the studio to Taste Of Chaos where we'll have the opportunity to let these new songs out of their cages,” the band says about the new album. 

This new album, the band's seventh full-length, will follow-up 2014's Happiness Is, which charted in Billboard's top 10. Taking Back Sunday are working with producer Mike Sapone and engineer Mike Pepe in Charlotte, NC.
