Emo rock band Taking Back Sunday have shared an official music video for “Tidal Wave,” the first single and title track of their upcoming album. Watch it above, courtesy of Hopeless Records’ YouTube.
Directed by Greg Hunter, the video shows the band giving a high-energy performance of the song for thousands of fans. “Tidal Wave” digs into the band’s punk roots with adrenalized guitar playing, pounding drums, and spirited vocals from singer Adam Lazzara.
Adam spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the new album and its sound:
Tidal Wave is a bit of a departure but I don’t think its coming out of left field… We realize anything we do is going to sound like Taking Back Sunday.
With our first records, we’re writing from the perspective of 17, 18-year-old kids and now it’s like as you grow older the blinders get pulled back and you have a different way of looking at the world around you.
Tidal Wave is scheduled to be released on September 16, 2016 through Hopeless Records. You can pick up the album through Taking Back Sunday’s webstore.
