Taking Back Sunday have announced a special reissue to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their iconic debut album, Tell All Your Friends.

From bonus content to unreleased demos from the time, the packed new edition will arrive on May 27 in a variety of formats – before that, though, TBS have just shared a new demo of Great Romances Of The 20th Century, which you can listen to below.

Guitarist / vocalist John Nolan shares of the inspration behind the anniversary reissue: “During our live shows, there is a part during Cute Without the ‘E’ where we stop and let the crowd sing, ‘Why can’t I feel anything from anyone other than you.’ That has become an unbelievably moving moment for me. The connection between us and the audience is so apparent and so strong. The crowd screams it at us, we stand back from our mics screaming it at them, and the lyrics take on more significance than we ever imagined they could.

“In a lot of ways, that moment is a distillation of what Tell All Your Friends has meant. It sums up the mind-boggling psychological and emotional connection we made with people 20 years ago that’s still going strong today.”
