Taking Back Sunday

Posted March 19, 2017, 8:52 a.m.

Listening to Taking Back Sunday as an emo kid in 2006 was like hooking the embodiment of your misplaced rage into your veins. If you didn't roar the chorus of "MakeDamnSure" in your bedroom while trying to aggressively apply kohl eyeliner then were you ever really an emo kid? But things change, and in the intervening ten years or so since then TBS have gone through line-up changes, sound changes, and four studio albums. The latest of these albums, Tidal Wave, is a definitive rock album that is hook-laden and cinematic, filled with powerful riffs and affecting lyrics. John Nolan, the band's lead guitarist and co-vocalist alongside Adam Lazzara, spoke to SPB about his upcoming benefit compilation album ...

Marc Euvrie (The Eye of Time)

Posted May 6, 2012, 6 p.m.

SPB was recently presented with the opportunity to talk with Marc Euvrie, the man behind the excellent album The Eye of Time. Unfortunately, your writer lives in Vermont, a glorified expressway between New York City and Montréal, and Euvrie happens to reside in France, which is apparently on an entirely different continent. Rather than letting this critical setback hamper us, we elected to email him a few questions in lieu of a face-to-face interview. Scene Point Blank: Right up front, I'd like to thank you in advance for taking the time to answer some of these questions. Firstly ...
