Die beiden Bandmitglieder haben jeweils ein Statement auf der offiziellen Homepage der Band hinterlassen, um sich von ihren Fans zu verabschieden:
"After seven years I'm sad to announce that I will no longer be playing the bass with Taking Back Sunday," schreibt Matt Rubano. "I would like to thank Adam, Eddie and Mark for giving me this amazing opportunity that changed my life. I am proud of the music we made together and cherished every moment of it. It's literally been a dream come true and you were the cast of that dream. I am happy to have met and befriended so many of you. I will miss you all."
"Thanks to everyone involved for making this such a beautiful experience for me, especially YOU, the fans," fügt Matt Fazzi hinzu, der 2008 zu TAKING BACK SUNDAY stieß. "You have been so warm and receptive to me since I joined and for this I am forever grateful. As for me, I will continue on with my own music and I hope to see some of your smiling faces around soon."
Wie es aussieht, werden die ehemaligen Mitglieder John Nolan (Gitarre, Gesang) und Shaun Cooper, der die Band 2003 verließ, um die Band STRYLIGHT RUN zu gründen, wieder bei den Long Island Rockern einsteigen.
