Taking Back Sunday
2012 has been a whirlwind for Taking Back Sunday. While they are currently one of the main headliners of the annual Vans Warped Tour and playing to thousands of people across North America this summer, NA is the fifth continent they have visited this year alone. They have also toured in South America, Europe, Australia and Asia. And it's only July. Taking Back Sunday is also about to launch another national US tour to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of their first release, TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS, a monumental album released in 2002 which has since gone platinum and laid the groundwork for a sound and performance style that still fills up clubs and concert halls to this day.
With one platinum and two gold albums in their 5 album repertoire, Taking Back Sunday has been fortunate enough to tour the world with some of the biggest names in rock music including Linkin Park, Blink-182, Faith No More and Green Day to name a few. They have also performed on the main stage of some of the world's biggest festivals including Reading and Leeds (UK), Soundwave (Australia), Summer Sonic (Japan), Bamboozle (US) and 2007's global Live Earth where they shared the Giants Stadium, New Jersey stage with Bon Jovi and The Police.
They have had multiple top 5 Billboard Soundscan debuts, Top 10 alternative radio hits, tons of video airplay along with an MTV Woodie Award, received rave reviews in major publications from Rolling Stone to Spin to People and have been lucky enough to perform on every major nightly talk show including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
Somehow the band still finds time to put out smaller ep releases and devote some of their time to raising money for various Cancer Charities. Taking Back Sunday is; Adam Lazzara (lead vocals) John Nolan (guitar, vocals) Eddie Reyes (rhythm guitar) Shaun Cooper (bass guitar) and Mark O'Connell (drums.)

Polar Bear Club is an American post-hardcore/indie rock band from Syracuse, upstate New York. Formed in 2005, the band currently consists of vocalist Jimmy Stadt, lead guitarist Chris Browne, rhythm guitarist Nate Morris, bass guitarist Erik Michael "Goose" Henning and drummer Emmett Menke. In March 2008, a full-length record Sometimes Things Just Disappear was released via Red Leader Records. They took off on the road in support of the album, and by the year's end they had signed on with hardcore-leaning label Bridge Nine Records. Their second album, Chasing Hamburg, was released in the fall of 2009. They are currently doing a US tour, and directly after they're starting the DeathTourus with Citizen, Diamond Youth, and Sainthood Reps.
"Transit has been getting better and better ever since the release of their first EP, 2007's Let It Out. But no one could ever predict that their development would reach such a devastating pinnacle on Stay Home. The band's newest release, a six-song collection again recorded with New England hardcore super producer Jay Maas (Verse, Shipwreck), Stay Home is made up an absolutely mind-blowing first half and a second half that, while not quite as good, is still wholehearted, well-rounded and stupidly solid itself. " -Punknews.org
"Not often does a band quell fears of mediocrity within seconds of an album's beginning, but Transit do just that on Stay Home's self-titled opener. Frenetic drum spanking and the lines, "So many days and nights of my life escape / It always fades away with time" create an instant spark. Talk about target marketing; there is perhaps no better way to describe the numbingly slow days of summer or spring break or whatever. Good things are sure to follow when a band can so succinctly lay their cards on the table." -AbsolutePunk.net
"Sometimes you can almost immediately tell where a band comes from after hearing just a few songs. Such is the case with Boston quintet Transit: The band's brand of melodic post-hardcore could only come from the upper East Coast, and on This Will Not Define Us, they shred through the speakers with a sound that's straight out of 2002. Thankfully though, it's not too derivative; apparent influences aside, this is really damn good. Transit's tunes pack a satisfying mix of catchy hooks and raw emotional grit not far removed from the likes of Crime In Stereo, or a far ballsier Taking Back Sunday circa Tell All Your Friends." -Mammoth Press
