Taking Back Sunday to Release New Album, Play Marquee in June

June is a big month for AZ Taking Back Sunday fans. The New Jersey band will drop their highly-anticipated fourth album, New Again, Tuesday, June. 2. The CD is the follow-up to 2006's "Louder Now" and features new guitarist Matt Fazzi. The first single off the album,"Sink Into Me," is a TBS gem with heavy guitar riffs and huge melodic choruses.

In addition to releasing a new disc, the guys are scheduled to perform at the Marquee Theatre the following Tuesday, June 9, when their headlining tour rolls into Tempe. Anberlin and Envy on the Coast are also on the bill for the all-ages gig. Tickets are $25.

TBS will open for Blink 182 and Weezer on a summer tour, kicking off in late August. A Phoenix date for this tour hasn't been announced.
