Taking Back Sunday: John Nolan (lead guitar, piano, vocals), Adam Lazzara (lead vocals), Shaun Cooper (bass) and Mark O’Connell (drums), announce their eighth studio album 152, set for release October 27, 2023, via Fantasy Records. Named for the section of road in North Carolina between Highpoint, Chapel Hill, and Raleigh where the band and their friends would meet up as teenagers⎯152 is the multi-platinum selling rock band’s first full-length offering since 2016’s Tidal Wave. To mark the occasion, Taking Back Sunday released a brand-new track, “S’old,” a fiery declaration of commitment and accountability.

Commenting on their new album 152, Taking Back Sunday stated: "152” offers a lot more hope and light than we first realized when we were in the thick of it, putting it all together. We’ve been fortunate enough, through our music, to grow up with a lot of people going through the same things at the same time, and probably feeling the same way. Our hope is that you’re able to find a little bit of yourself in this new collection of songs, because you’re not alone, and neither are we.”

From the album’s intricate riffs and anthemic vocals to its elegantly warm synths and economical string arrangements, the quartet work-shopped these new tracks like never before. That musical ambition, both musically and lyrically, is evident on the soaring album opener, “Amphetamine Smiles,” a powerful tale of reconnection that is as much about the band themselves as it is the world at-large. From send-up to seriousness, Taking Back Sunday continually challenged one another, exploring musical ideas in new and exciting ways. So many of these tracks dig deep and connect on a gut level. “S’old” struggles with the obligations of adult responsibility and acceptance, (the previously released single) "The One," is a far-reaching anthem of love and brotherhood, “Keep Going,” tracks the self-defeating darkness of betrayal, and “Quit Trying,” drips with a ‘can’t run from who you are’ self-awareness. All through 152, the consistent thread is one of generosity, gratitude and ultimately, hope.
