Taking Back Sunday Talks New Album, Split from Warner Bros.

By jonathan - Posted on 26 July 2013

Alternative Press has posted a new interview with Taking Back Sunday. Among other things, the band reveals that they've recorded eight songs for their next album with Marc Hudson, that they'll be heading to Long Island soon to record at least five more songs for their new album with Mike Sapone), that the new album has an "alt-country" vibe (but don't take that too seriously!) that they plan to release the new album sometime next year, and, perhaps most notably, that the band has split off from Warner Bros. and are now "free agents":

You mentioned before that you likely aren’t going to self-release this album, like you did for TAYF10 Acoustic. Are you free agents right now?

LAZZARA: Yeah, we’re free agents now. That’s another thing that’s been really nice about this process. We can just do what we want with the songs. There’s not any kind of outside influence. At the same time, [release plans have] been on the backburner to the songs. We’ve been talking to a couple of different folks, but we’re focused on getting everything as good as it can possibly be, then we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. Hopefully we’ll be able to release it sometime next year. We’re so neck deep in all of this technology, and everybody wants things now now now, but it’s still going to be a little bit of a wait, just so we can figure out the best home for it, and the best way to go about trying to get it to people.

Elsewhere in the interview, the band notes that they'll be doing more shows after Riot Fest before they break for the holiday, including a previously announced show at Starland Ballroom where they'll record a "full band" version of Tell All Your Friends. The interview really is a must read -- check it out here.
