Taking Back Sunday are happy to announce that they are self-releasing a double DVD version of both the TAYF10: ACOUSTIC and TAYF10: LIVE FROM STARLAND BALLROOM films through their own label, Sorry Records on December 10. They are also making the TAYF10: ACOUSTIC album available on vinyl for the first time. All of the releases are being sold directly through the band with the help of Modlife, and can be pre-ordered right here: http://modlife.com/shoptbs/
Fans who pre-order the double DVD will also be eligible to win one of a handful of TAYF10 VIP sticky passes that were stamped with the date of the show. TAYF10: ACOUSTIC on vinyl will also be available through Hot Topic.
The acoustic film and album were recorded in October of 2012 at a few of the rare acoustic stops on the TAYF10 anniversary tour. Portions from both shows at the Beat Kitchen in Chicago and Troubadour in LA were used for the film that was released digitally earlier in the year. The film includes interview footage of the full band shot at the Troubadour reminiscing about the early days of Taking Back Sunday. The film and vinyl version also both include the bonus track Your Own Disaster.
The band returned to Starland Ballroom in September of 2013 for a pair of make-up shows after Hurricane Sandy destroyed the venue just prior to the originally scheduled dates. Starland rebuilt and invited them back and the band was happy to oblige. AXStv was there to capture the live event which originally aired on September 12, 2013. AXStv will be broadcasting the newly edited film version on December 8. Check your local listings for the time and channel where AXStv is available. The film includes two bonus tracks, Your Own Disaster and The Ballad of Sal Villanueva along with some bonus footage of Eddie’s Birthday.
Taking Back Sunday have also created a limited edition, deluxe version of the double DVD that includes a specially made autographed TAYF10 wall plaque, a sticky pass from the TAYF10 tour and a specially pressed CD version of the acoustic album. Only 200 of these will be available. Fans who pre-order this package are also eligible to win one of a handful of signed set lists from the Starland show.
For those folks who already purchased TAYF10: ACOUSTIC digitally, the TAYF10: LIVE AT STARLAND BALLROOM film will also be available digitally through the same site: http://tayf10.takingbacksunday.com/ and can also be pre-ordered now for the December 10 release.
