The emo kid inside of me has been jumping for joy ever since Taking Back Sunday announced that John Nolan and Shaun Cooper were rejoining the band last month. For those of you unfamiliar with the story, Nolan and Cooper were in the "original" lineup of the band that put out the 2002 debut record "Tell All Your Friends," but then had a massive falling out with the other members and broke off to start Straylight Run.
But time heals all wounds and the reunited lineup have been writing a new record. But before they go into the studio, they're going to do a mini tour at six venues that "have special meaning to them." So if you're in one of the following cities, rejoice! Presale tickets go on sale tomorrow at 5pm PST here.
6/22/2010 - Starland Ballroom - Sayreville, NJ
6/23/2010 - Irving Plaza - New York, NY
6/24/2010 - Electric Factory - Philadelphia, PA
