Taking Back Sunday - A Music & Charity Breakdown In Less Than A Minute

Taking Back Sunday is an American rock band from Long Island, New York, formed in 1999 by vocalist/guitarist John Nolan and guitarist Eddie Reyes. They rose to prominence after the release of their debut album Tell All Your Friends (2002), which featured hit singles such as “Cute Without The E,” “You're So Last Summer,” and “A Decade Under The Influence,” among many others.


Since then, they have released several more albums (Where You Want To Be, Louder Now, New Again) featuring a unique blend of alternative rock and emo-pop with emotionally driven lyrics that explore topics such as relationships & love, facing inner demons, dealing with loss & loneliness; and navigating through life's struggles while still holding onto hope for a brighter future.


The band has also actively supported numerous causes throughout their career, including mental health awareness initiatives like Brightest Blue Day — which provides education about depression & suicide prevention; donating proceeds from live shows to organizations like Warped Tour's Give It A Name Festival which raises money for cancer research; supporting Fender Music Foundation — an organization that strives to give access to music education programs across America for young people who are underserved or lack resources entirely; and much more.
