Taking Back Sunday are set to celebrate their landmark debut, Tell All Your Friends, with a variety of special reissues and bonus content.

Set for release on May 27 and now available for pre-order via Craft Recordings, all formats offer newly remastered audio, while the vinyl, CD, and digital editions feature four previously unreleased demos, including “Mutual Head Club,” “Bike Scene,” “The Blue Channel,” and “Great Romances of the 20th Century”—the latter of which is available today across digital platforms.

The deluxe, 2-LP vinyl set is housed in a gatefold jacket, offering the remastered original album plus a bonus etched 10-inch disc with the four demos. Various limited-edition color pressings will also be available, each offering a unique color for LP1 along with the standard black 10-inch. Fans can pick these up via the band’s webstore and on tour (Blue Smoke and Forest Green vinyl), Craft Recordings (Fog vinyl), Revolver (Orange Crush vinyl), and Urban Outfitters (Sangria vinyl).

Rounding out the LP and CD formats are new liner notes from journalist Glenn Gamboa, who covered music for the Long Island-based Newsday during the band’s rise to fame. Additionally, a limited cassette edition will deliver the classic 10-track album, which includes such iconic hits as “Cute Without the ‘E’ (Cut from the Team)” and “You’re So Last Summer.”

Originally released in 2002, Tell All Your Friends not only propelled Taking Back Sunday to global stardom, but also became a defining album in the alt-rock canon. Yet, as the Long Island band readied to record their debut, their expectations were modest—evidenced by the album’s tongue-in-cheek title. After solidifying their line-up in 2001 and recording a five-song demo, Adam Lazzara (vocals), Eddie Reyes (guitar), John Nolan (guitar + vocals), Mark O’Connell (drums), and Shaun Cooper (bass) caught the ears of Victory Records, who signed them promptly that December. Not long after, the band entered New Jersey’s Big Blue Meenie studio with producer Sal Villanueva (Thursday, Murphy’s Law) to record Tell All Your Friends.

In addition to working on a new album, the band is readying for an extensive summer tour with Third Eye Blind. They also look forward to performing at Las Vegas’ highly anticipated When We Were Young festival in October.
