Taking Back Sunday Embark on 20th Anniversary 2019 World Tour

Taking Back Sunday have a lot to celebrate in 2019. The emo-rockers have made a long-lasting career out of creating music from the heart for the last 20 years. Founded in 1999, it wasn't long before they released a single, ("Cute Without the E,") that hit the Billboard charts.
Lead singer Adam Lazzara and bassist Shaun Cooper recently expressed their sentiments to Rolling Stone:
“We are fortunate to be having a 20th anniversary,” lead singer Adam Lazzara tells Rolling Stone. Adds bassist Shaun Cooper:
“We came from a scene where most bands didn’t have much longevity. The four of us really love making music together and playing shows. We always kind of lived in fear that it could all go away at any minute.”
Today, their compilation album Twenty was released via Craft Recordings. The album carries 19 essential tracks from all seven of their albums, as well as two new songs. The new tracks include 2018 single "All Ready to Go" and a ballad which premiered yesterday, the somber "A Song for Dan." Listen to that track below:
"A Song For Dan"
On the meaning of the song:
“Mark and I had a good friend who tragically passed away during the recording of our [2016] Tidal Wave record,” explains Cooper. “He taught Mark and I a ton about songwriting and guitar playing. After he passed, Mark was inspired and spent about a year working on the musical arrangement of the song.”
Taking Back Sunday kicked off their 20th anniversary world tour on the 9th in Adelaide, Australia. The kick off night found the band performing Tell All Your Friends in full, followed by Louder Now. Last night Melbourne got the same setlist, but with the addition of a four song encore that hit on more beloved hits, including new song "All Ready to Go." Check out last night's setlist below:

When the tour was announced, TBS plotted two nights in a row in certain cities, where one night will get Louder Now in full for the second set, and the other night will get Where You Want to Be. The band will chose by a handy dandy coin toss.
