Taking Back Sunday bringing ‘Tell All Your Friends’ tour to the Riv & Beat Kitchen

Taking Back Sunday in 2011
tbs2011

Back in 2002, Taking Back Sunday released their debut album, Tell All Your Friends. After that album, the original lineup split up and TBS continued with new members, moving further and further away from their original sound until they basically became the epitome of MTV pop emo. The original lineup reunited for a self titled album in 2011, but saying that album didn’t quite capture what was achieved on TAYF is an understatement — that album was pretty downright bad.

So say what you will about the band now (or even then), but when Tell All Your Friends came out, it was up there with albums like Thursday’s Full Collapse, Brand New’s Your Favorite Weapon, and Thrice’s The Illusion of Safety for one of the most impacting emo albums of the early 2000’s for those teenagers (like myself) who were beginning to discover that you can pour your heart out in music and rock the fuck out while doing so.
[Andrew Sacher – BV]

Taking Back Sunday are celebrating the 10th anniversary of TAYF by playing it on tour throughout the US this fall. That tour includes two Chicago shows — one at the Riv on October 6 and an acoustic show at the Beat Kitchen on October 8. Bayside will act as support on all electric shows. Tickets for the Riv go on sale this Friday (8/10) at noon CST. Tickets for the Beat Kitchen show are not on sale yet, but check the venue’s website for updates.
