Taking Back Sunday have announced they’re set to release their new album ‘Tidal Wave’ on September 16th via Hopeless Records.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, frontman Adam Lazzara explains, “Look, in my mind every album anyone’s ever written is an emo album because there’s a lot of emotion that goes into all of that. You can’t listen to ‘Hey Jude’ and tell me that’s not an emo song. I don’t like being pigeonholed because I think there’s more to it than that. I think this record highlights that very well, so no I wouldn’t consider it an emo record in the traditional sense of the word.”
“‘Tidal Wave’ is a bit of a departure but I don’t think its coming out of left field,” he continues. “We realise anything we do is going to sound like Taking Back Sunday.”
