Ten years ago, emo rock band Taking Back Sunday burst onto the scene with their breakthrough debut album Tell All Your Friends. Clearly, listeners took those words to heart because before long everyone was telling their friends about this soon-to-be-legendary record. Now, after touring around the U.S. performing the record front to back to celebrate its 10 year anniversary, the band has decided to release 2 live recorded versions of the album from this tour, one acoustic and one full band.
The exact date has yet to be announced, but these albums will be released some time next year through Taking Back Sunday’s own label. Since the band’s contract with Warner Bros. has ended, “releasing the albums themselves is the band’s way of seeing whether they want to sign with another label,” according to vocalist Adam Lazzara in a recent newspaper article. Needless to say, long-term fans of the band will be chomping at the bit to get their hands on these live albums.

All About A Bubble
There’s a pantheon of music constructed of staccato guitars, thrashing drums, and searching, volatile vocals. Some call it emo, some call it pop-punk, some call it alternative. The name itself isn’t important. What matters is the legion of fans who flock to festivals like Warped Tour, snatch up records put out by Fueled By Ramen, and pour their love into every note, every word uttered. Band like At The Drive In, Taking Back Sunday, Motion City Soundtrack and countless others have supplied this demand over the course of two decades. You can add the name All About A Bubble to the list. The Tulsa, Okla. group delivers frenetic, precise rockers like West Coast, with its chugging guitars and monster melody. Impossible to Fade begins with singer Dustin Storm’s innervated croon before kicking into a coursing power ballad. The calm after the storm comes from Paper Planes, a mostly acoustic heartbreaker moved along by”you guessed it”big guitars and drums. Welcome to the pantheon, guys.
