Be sure to follow @TBSOfficial on twitter to catch a live Q&A with members of the band today at 5pm EST where they will discuss the release and make other special announcements.
TAYF10 Acoustic was recorded during the Tell All Your Friends 10th anniversary tour at the Troubadour in Los Angeles and the Beat Kitchen in Chicago in October 2012. The release includes a bonus track and special guest performances. The film version will also include exclusive interview footage of the band discussing the making of the album and their early days of touring.
Both the film and album will be available directly to fans at TakingBackSunday.com and will include package pricing along with exclusive TAYF10 tour merchandise bundles. The album-only version will also be available for purchase at most major digital retailers.
Taking Back Sunday will play two electric shows at Starland Ballroom in New Jersey on Sept. 11 and 12 where they will perform Tell All Your Friends in its entirety. This comes after the band's previously scheduled performance during the TAYF10 tour was moved to another venue in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
"We were honored to be asked back to help celebrate the re-opening of this important New Jersey venue," said lead vocalist Adam Lazzara. "It only felt right to perform TAYF10 there where it was supposed to happen last year, and that's where we hope to film the companion to the acoustic release."
Tickets for both Starland Ballroom shows go on sale to the public at noon this Friday, June 7 via Starlandballroom.com and AXS.com, or by calling 888.9.AXS.TIX (888.929.7849).The band will also perform at Riot Fest in Chicago this fall and tickets are available now at http://riotfest.org/chicago-tickets/.
