Taking Back Sunday Share “Amphetamine Smiles”; Reveal US Tour Dates

Celebrated rock band Taking Back Sunday is back with their latest single, “Amphetamine Smiles,” from the eagerly awaited album 152, set for release on October 27th, 2023, via Fantasy.

“Amphetamine Smiles” stands as a symbol of reconnection and serves as a representation of the band’s signature emotional reassurance. John Nolan, the band’s lead guitarist and vocalist, describes the song’s creation as somewhat mystical, “You could document the writing, arranging, and recording of ‘Amphetamine Smiles,’ but there’s no way to explain how it came together. It’s the product of some kind of magic.”
