All right, time to put out some long over-due information. Listen up cause we're only gonna say this about a thousand times in the next string of interviews:
First off, thanks for your patience. We've held off putting out any information that we weren't 100% sure about - it's a good practice, some of you should try it sometime. Hehe. We're also working on the new website but it's nice to have photos and stuff first and go from there so quit yer bitchin. Without further ado we'd like to introduce you to the two new members of Taking Back Sunday.
On Guitar and vocals we'd like to introduce Fred Mascherino. He got the job after his band, Breaking Pangaea, performed on part of TBS's Takeover Tour. Mascherino had been playing in Breaking Pangaea since early 2000. The trio spent much of their existence on college charts across the US. The band was known for their frontman's insightful lyrics and guitar virtuosity. Mascherino earned a Jazz degree from Temple University but admits that his true goal is to encompass the fingers of Eddie Van Halen and the voice of David Lee Roth into one body. He has been managing this task in the post-hardcore forum since the mid-nineties when he played in Brody with skate rock legend Chuck Treece (Bad Brains, Urge Overkill). Fred is ready, willing, and able to perform both guitar and vocal duties and can often be found screaming behind buildings when no one is looking.
Our new bassist comes in the form of Matthew Rubano. He's a childhood friend of Mark's and comes from Baldwin, New York. After studying at the Berklee College of Music, Matt moved back to N.Y. to pursue his music career. Most well known for his work on Lauryn Hill's grammy winning debut "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill", Matt has also recorded and performed with a variety of artists across different genres of music. Matt has recently been practicing the fine and dangerous art of dodging microphones.
The Taking Back Sunday line up is now complete and we want to thank everyone for coming out to the last few dates of Warped Shows to remind us of how lucky we are to be able to do this every day. We're working on making up a lot of things that had to be cancelled so stay tuned to your in-boxes and www.takingbacksunday.com for a lot more show announcements.
Those of you curious about John and Shaun please visit the site of their new band Straylight Run and direct questions to them there. We wish them the best of luck with everything.
We'd really like to get back to the business of playing shows and making music. We're excited to move on and leave the past in the past and urge you to do the same.
Glad to be back in action,
Eddie, Mark, Adam, Fred and Matt - aka Taking Back Sunday
p.s. T-shirts are for wearing, not talking about on the internet...
