Taking Back Sunday’s third album is a no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners affair. After releasing their Billboard-chart-topping second album Where You Want to Be, the five-piece hit the road in a big way, playing many shows (headlining and with Jimmy Eat World, as well as the Vans Warped Tour and the Leeds and Reading festivals) which lead to members forgetting their own home addresses and phone numbers. The band went for a more-is-more approach on Louder Now. Darker, faster, more furious, with more hooks and a deeper sense of dislocation, Louder Now finds Taking Back Sunday experimenting in the studio (on the stunning, Cure-influenced “Miami”) as well as capturing the mercurial energy of the Taking Back Sunday live show.

Since debuting with 2002’s Tell All Your Friends, Taking Back Sunday has sold over 1.4 million copies of their first two records, and established itself as one of the hardest-working live acts in the business. With yowling vocals and slashing guitars, this powerful, melodic hardcore band has received raves from Spin, Entertainment Weekly and Alternative Press and won the adulation of millions of listeners.

“Pull yourself together, man,” howls Underoath lead singer Spencer Chamberlain on the Florida band’s fifth magnum opus. Filled with the questioning rage the group’s fans have come to know and love, Define the Great Line is a career-best summation of the metal, hardcore and screamo formula that has made the eight-year-old six-piece one of the most successful rock ’n’ roll acts of its time. The disc follows the band’s 2004 breakthrough They’re Only Chasing Safety, a record that sold over 350,000 copies worldwide. This past year, Underoath toured Western Canada and sold out every show on the tour and are considered one of the best live acts in the hardcore genre.

It appears the lines between style and rock have become so blurred, some might think... more info
