    Guitarists Eddie Reyes and Jesse Lacey formed Taking Back Sunday in November 1999. From being a guitarist, Lacey then transferred to the bass, who was later on replaced by John Nolan. Antonio Longo served as the vocalist, while Steven DeJoseph was the drummer.

    However, due to personal disputes, Lacey left the band, and he was later on replaced by Adam Lazarra. DeJoseph then followed, and was then replaced by Mark O’Connell.

    After the band started recording for their self-titled EP, Longo left eventually, making Lazzara take the place as lead vocalist, with Shaun Cooper as the new bassist.

    By 2002, they released their debut album “Tell All Your Friends” and began touring. Nolan left the band eventually, and Cooper soon followed, replacing them was Fred Mascherino on guitar and Matt Rubano on bass. They released their second album “Where you want to be” in 2004, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart with over 220,000 copies sold.

    By 2005, the Taking Back Sunday signed with Warner Bros. Records and recorded their third album in 2006 titled “Louder Now”. After a year of touring, Fred Mascherino left the band in 2007 and was then replaced by Matthew Fazzi as the new guitarist.

    The band released their fourth album “New Again” in 2008, and in 2010, Matt Rubano and Matthew Fazzi left the band. News also broke on that same year that John Nolan and Shaun Cooper will be re-joining the band to celebrate their 10 years through a Tell All Your Friends Anniversary Tour in 2012.

    By 2014, Taking Back Sunday revealed their newest album “Happiness Is”, and in between touring, they released another album “Tidal Wave” in 2016. This 2018, the founding guitarist, Eddie Reyes left the band, and it was soon revealed that the band is making a compilation album for their 20th Anniversary along with the worldwide tour in 2019.
