Taking Back Sunday have announced that their new album, 152, will be released on October 27 via Fantasy Records.

The album was named after the section of a road in North Carolina that once was the New York rock band members’ meeting place.

The announcement of Taking Back Sunday’s eighth album was accompanied by the release of one of the songs from the record, titled “S’old.”

“‘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 quartet says about the upcoming album. “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.”

“You would think after 20 years, we knew what each other is going to do,” said Taking Back Sunday frontman Adam Lazzara. “But there were so many times making this record where I heard the initial idea and thought I knew where it would go, but then I was super surprised. It’s those kinds of surprises that make it so exciting. That’s why we all still want it so badly.”

“When we’re writing songs, the one thing we ask ourselves, ‘Is it capable of making people feel something?’ You try to make people feel emotion. That’s the one goal we went in with, and we think we did it,” added drummer Mark O’Connell.
