Warner Brothers Wanted Taking Back Sunday to Re-Record Debut Album

Posted by - 11:01 AM on 04/30/14
On a recent podcast with Voice & Verse, Shaun Cooper revealed that Warner Brothers wanted Taking Back Sunday to re-record Tell All Your Friends.
The label came in and said, “I know the bass and drums are basically done with the record, but how about you give us four of five more songs?” And at the time he was saying write four or five more songs, the dude was also saying why don’t you guys re-record Tell All Your Friends so they could make it a double CD? We’re going, “Are you nuts?”

The only way I would want a re-recorded TAYF is if each and every song was drastically changed and messed with so that it really was new versions of the songs and basically a whole new release

That album has already been completely milked since John and Shawn came back into the fold. I used to love that record but I can't even listen to it anymore since its so… aged. Imagine how bad it would be if they fucking re recorded it? Men in their mid 30's singing High School jams.. LOL.

New Again and Happiness Is are the only records I can listen to still from these guys.

i've always wondered what it would be like if they did re-record the album. same with blink-182's dude ranch. if they were in it for the $$$$ then i guess it can make sense, but they're obviously not and I respect that. love the new album.

It would be interesting to hear the album re-done with a much larger budget, seeing as the original is so rough. That said, it would have completely overshadowed the actual album they were there to record

Stupid proposal, but still I dont blame Warner for bringing up the idea. After Louder Now TBS wasnt generating any money for them.

Glad they passed on that one. That album is lightning in a bottle.

I actually think that the rough production is what makes that album great.

You nailed it.

Also pretty much explains why most of their discography is just so mediocre-to-shitty by comparison.
