Biography

Taking Back Sunday is a band that truly needs no introduction. Since forming in Long Island in 1999, they have sold millions of albums, evolved from a young punk act into seasoned songwriters and continued to forge a successful career. That spirit of resilience and innovation is dripping all over the band's sixth full-length Happiness Is (which is also their first release for Hopeless Records). As you can guess from the title, the album addresses some heady concepts, but it simultaneously showcases a new musical and conceptual leap for this collection of musicians with varied influences that is certain to endear them to fans both new and old.

    Though they would later relocate to nearby Philadelphia, punk rock unit the Menzingers came together in Scranton, PA and included former members of local ska-punk bands Bob & the Sagets and Kos Mos. Tom May (vocals, guitar), Joe Godino (drums), Eric Keen (bass), and Greg Barnett (vocals, guitar). The Menzingers signed on with punk giant Epitaph Records, and in 2012 they released their third, more mature album, On the Impossible Past. The band continues to grow and refine their sound, incorporating elements of earthy and earnest heartland rock into their sound, a trend that was evident on their 2014 album, Rented World.
