Staying Home Together – March 22

Posted on March 21, 2020

Everything right now is feeling very strange and scary. We feel that too. So in hopes to spread some love, joy and possibly a small respite, we will be live streaming an acoustic show from home on INSTAGRAM on Sunday March 22 at 2pm ET.
Also, we know everyone is in financial uncertainty right now. We want to do something to help our crew, who make our touring shows/lives possible. If you’d like to contribute, here are some ways you can do that via virtual “tips” or “donations.” THANK YOU FOR BEING SO GENEROUS ALREADY!

We can’t wait to see you on Sunday (virtually, please, stay home.)
UPDATE: We just added an event shirt for this live stream, proceeds also going to the crew! 48 hour pre-sale only check it out at takingbacksundaystore.com

Pre-orders are available now in regular black through them and various retailers and in this limited color morphing version from us in our official online store and on tour while supplies last. Album release date is October 4! Check out our merch bundle pre-order with the album cover now over at takingbacksunday.com/usstore
