As they gear up for the release of their seventh studio album Tidal Wave, Taking Back Sunday have given us a taste of the forthcoming record via a new single called You Can’t Look Back.
The US alt-rock outfit have also shared an official music video for the new track which features the band’s frontman Adam Lazzara and a whole heap of blood.
“So, the original concept we were given on paper was just about the party around the bonfire,” Taking Back Sunday guitarist John Nolan tells Alternative Press. “We said ‘yeah, we like that one, but something fucked up needs to happen at the end.’ At one point we were talking about having actual guts coming out but we didn’t want to be that over.”
Nolan also teases that the saga of the bloody man may continue with other tracks from the forthcoming album. “We are also planning to continue this storyline, so stay tuned,” he says.
Taking Back Sunday are touring Australia in March 2017 in support of Tidal Wave, which is set for release on Friday, 16th September. Watch the gory video for You Can’t Look Back, below.
