Taking Back Sunday, happy again

Published on Mar 20, 2014 9:36 PM

"Happiness Is" is the sixth album from New York rock quintet Taking Back Sunday. But it is more than an album title, it also marks the reunion of the band's original members.

The five have not played together since 2003.

In Singapore for the first time, guitarist John Nolan and vocalist Adam Lazzara sat down with The Straits Times and spoke candidly about their eight-year "cold war", their reconciliation and how the band feels new again.
