Spring is the time of rebirth and renewal, and it’s no different for pop-punk band Taking Back Sunday. The quintet from Long Island, NY, will support its upcoming fourth studio album with the six-week New Again Tour of the United States and Canada.
The 30-city spring trek kicks off May 14 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, OH, and closes June 27 at the House of Blues in Boston, MA. Gig stops include a May 19 concert at First Avenue in Minneapolis, MN, a May 26 event at Boulder Theater in Boulder, CO, shows on June 10 and 12 at Sunshine Theatre in Albuquerque, NM, a June 19 session at The National in Richmond, VA, and a June 25 set at Webster Theater in Hartford, CT.
The itinerary also includes two quick runs north of the border for a May 30 performance at Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, BC, and a June 23 show at Kool Haus in Toronto, ON. Alternative rock bands Anberlin and Envy on the Coast are providing support for all dates on the tour.
Public on-sales begin on March 21, except for select markets on the tour. Ticket sales begin a day earlier on March 20 in Cleveland, Cincinnati and Vancouver.
A pre-sale bundle will be available to fans today (March 18) through March 20. During this time, individuals who purchase tickets for the upcoming tour will also receive a digital download of the upcoming album “New Again.” An additional $4.50 per ticket will be added automatically, allowing the buyer to access a digital version of the record as soon as it is officially released on June 2.
The record is the first release from Taking Back Sunday to feature new guitarist Matthew Fazzi. The band’s previous studio album, 2006’s “Louder Now,” hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and was certified Gold shortly after its release.
Before beginning the spring tour, Taking Back Sunday will make appearances at the East and West Coast incarnations of the Bamboozle Festival. First is an April 5 set at Bamboozle Left in Irvine, CA, followed by a May 3 performance at Bamboozle in East Rutherford, NJ.
