Taking Back Sunday, are returning to New Zealand shores in March 2017, bringing with them a catalogue of hits from their vast discography plus material from their highly anticipated 7th studio album, Tidal Wave.
While most of their peers have either broken up or faded away, Taking Back Sunday have been continually re-inventing themselves with each release. Their seventh studio album, Tidal Wave, is no different. The album marks the first time that Taking Back Sunday wrote in the studio as they recorded, showcasing a fluidity when it came to songwriting and a heightened degree of collaboration and creativity. As frontman Adam Lazzara explains “We could come up with an idea, perform it and then listen back to it immediately instead of feeling boxed in by what we did on demos.”
The resulting 12 track album is the band’s best work yet, with the band enthusing, “We really can’t wait for you to hear it. Everyone is working hard to categorize where this music fits and all we can say is we wrote from the heart and did the best work we could.”

When I sat down with Australian rockers The Delta Riggs lead singer, Elliot Hammond and bassist Michael Tramonte (Monte) all I knew them for was the fact that Elliot thinks he’s Noel Gallagher and they ruin people’s nights, but as we delve deeper into a fantastically, strange conversation I discovered that the people who say such things are false.
