Taking Back Sunday has also released their video for single, “Flicker, Fade”, here: http://smarturl.it/flickerfadevideo. Directed by DJay Brawner, Lazzara tells us, “We haven’t made a video in a while and we didn’t want to overthink it so we connected with some creative folks and said ‘remember when music videos could just be about a song?’  We found a cool location that we feel matched the mood of Flicker, Fade and made a performance video that showcased the song itself.  The result was exactly what we were chasing. No heavy story line to distract from the mood, just a moment in time to live inside the music we created.”

Taking Back Sunday - Happiness IsThe band will be releasing their new album, Happiness Ison March 18th via Hopeless Records produced by Marc Jacob Hudson and Mike Sapone, and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer. With the spirit of resilience and innovation dripping all over the band’s sixth full-length, the album addresses some heady concepts, but it simultaneously showcases a new musical and conceptual leap for this band of mainstream misfits that’s sure to endear them to fans both new and old. To pre-order Happiness Is with an instant download of single ‘Flicker, Fade”, please visit: hopelessrecords.com/happinessis.
