Taking Back Sunday is not turning their collective back on what is already a storied past, not when their resume boasts three gold albums, extensive touring with Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, and Jimmy Eat World, as well as co-headlining the Warped tour, all in-between their own headlining gigs for 10,000 plus fans regularly.
Yes, it’s already an impressive run Taking Back Sunday has had, but the rejuvenated group is looking clearly to the here and now. Their stunning new album ‘New Again’ is more than an album title, it’s a declaration and it “leaps forward as the best album of Taking Back Sunday’s career to date.” – Alternative Press.
For those that witnessed Enter Shikari on their first Australian tour, they would remember the sweat and the smiles, the laser beams and the elegiac choruses, the blur of flashing Shikari cygnet rings as somersaulting fists pumped the air and the surges of serotonin up the spine into the lower cortex.
Some are already suggesting the brilliant second album by Enter Shikari, ‘Common Dreads’, will define the era into which it was born: one of recession, paranoia, state control and the fallout of decades of accelerated capitalism. But – and this is important – also an era of hope and creativity, humanity, hedonism, irreverence and fun. “It’s a dance party for the end of the world” – Absolute Punk.
On the back of their Soundwave appearances Taking Back Sunday and Enter Shikari will be performing 2 club shows only in Sydney and Melbourne.
