Alternative Press teamed up with Taking Back Sunday for an exclusive white with blue splatter variant of 152, limited to 500 copies. Head to the AP Shop to snag yours.
Taking Back Sunday’s latest album, 152, comes after a joyful, celebratory year. Between backyard shows, headlining Sad Summer, and crashing weddings, the group are still kicking and influencing the people around them. Naturally, their new record reflects wisdom gained from their many years making music together, possessing an emotional depth and reflective nature from the Long Island crew. From the vulnerable ballad “Amphetamine Smiles” to cute love songs like “The One,” 152 is the next logical step in Taking Back Sunday’s canon.

“152 offers a lot more hope and light than we first realized when we were in the thick of it, putting it all together,” the band say. “We’ve been fortunate enough, through our music, to grow up with a lot of people going through the same things at the same time, and probably feeling the same way. Our hope is that you’re able to find a little bit of yourself in this new collection of songs, because you’re not alone, and neither are we.”
The band gave us a track-by-track breakdown of their latest album. See the video, created by Anthony Natoli, below.
