2000’s emo legends Taking Back Sunday have announced their seventh album, Tidal Wave, and released a music video for the title track.
Vocalist Adam Lazzara has described the album as “a bit of a departure“. Elaborating on his mentality, however, Lazzara described his view that every song is an ’emo’ song.
“You can’t listen to ‘Hey Jude’ and tell me that’s not an emo song. I don’t like being pigeonholed because I think there’s more to it than that. I think this record highlights that very well, so no I wouldn’t consider it an emo record in the traditional sense of the word.”
Make of that what you will! Perhaps Tidal Wave can help wash away any doubts.
