Taking Back Sunday Frontman Talks 'Tidal Wave' Album

Taking Back Sunday

(Radio.com) With Taking Back Sunday's seventh album, fans are tasked with following the band on a new road, although not totally unfamiliar, Tidal Wave is an adventure both sonically and lyrically.

As frontman Adam Lazzara tells Radio.com, the band faced a fork in the road after seventeen years. Do they give fans the expected, or do they follow their hearts and produce an album that speaks about who they are as a band today? Lazzara not only describes the outcome of that decision but he treats fans to a little inside info by revealing some hidden Easter Eggs within the album.

He first reveals who the kid on the new vintage looking album cover is. "The child is mine! That's Asa Joe. My wife actually took that picture. We were kinda doing one of those bucket list trips like going to see the Grand Canyon. Well, we wanted to drive across the Florida Keys 'cause there's that one long highway. We stopped on the side of the road just to get out of the car--cause it takes way longer than we thought it was going to--she snapped the photo.

"As we were listening back to everything toward the end of the recording process we noticed there were all these references to water, which was completely unintentional. That was right about the time she had taken that photo. And as far as the vintage feel, for us, we kinda feel like we captured this timeless quality that we're constantly chasing. So we wanted the cover to reflect that. This could be something that came out three or four years ago or right now." Read the full interview here.
