Adam Lazzara Contemplating Solo Album

Posted by - 10:56 AM on 07/26/12
Adam from Taking Back Sunday is thinking of releasing a solo album.
From the ArticleLately, Lazzara has been thinking about doing a solo album. If anything, that's where the "emo" and "pop-punk" tags concern him the most. He doesn't listen to much music that would be considered emo or pop-punk anymore, he says. Nowadays, Lazzara likes the rootsy alternative country of fellow North Carolinian Ryan Adams. And he recently checked out the Of Montreal show at the Neighborhood Theatre. "I'm worried that whenever I get my shit together and actually make my album, it'll get dismissed," he says. "I'm afraid people will say, 'Oh, it's just that emo guy.' That's not exactly who I am, and I don't want to have to meet with that kind of immediate dismissal or opposition.

I don't see people in the country scene really knowing who he is. If he makes good music then it won't matter what else he does.

As much as I hope Taking Back Sunday stays around and they make more albums It would be cool for him to do something different. A lot of fans of Taking Back Sunday are a lot older these days and like a lot more indie, alternative,the blues, blue grass, and possibly alt country. I think if music is really self-expression than just give it your best and let it speak for itself.

Go for it. I'd love Eddie Reyes to release a solo album or have a side project (maybe he does and I just don't know if it?). I think he's way more talented than people give him credit for.

Don't judge it till you hear it. He could surprise you.

(Just being optimistic here, I personally think John should be the lead singer of TBS.)

I'd be more excited for this than another TBS record.

My thought's exactly.
P.S. anyone hear anything about that John Nolan/Mansions split? I think it was supposed to come out sometime this yr.

I know Adam is referencing more alt-country, but I can't shake the mental image of back to back Adam Lazzara and Darius Rucker music videos on CMT...
