Taking Back Sunday: An interview with vocalist Adam Lazzara

For the first installment of my  coverage of Riot Fest Toronto 2014 I sat down with vocalist Adam Lazzara of pop-punk icons Taking Back Sunday. They’re now two albums deep with the reunited Tell All Your Friends line-up from 2002, yet the music they make now seems as far from that album as it can possibly get. I spoke to Adam about his perspective on his older material and legacy, plus how the “new-old” line-up mixed with the band’s commercial success from the years before the reunion

Taking Back Sunday are on tour with The Used through October 6th including a stop in Winnipeg tomorrow. They’ve also just released a split 10” EP with The Used on Hopeless Records.
