the first song by an emo-pop band that the Foo Fighters wish they'd written: Catchy, lusty and sleekly propulsive.

George Mason University Life and the Office of Student Activities are excited to announce The All-American Rejects and Taking Back Sunday in the co-headlining, "I Wanna Rock Tour" coming to the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA on November 16 at 8 p.m. This is the first time New York quintet Taking Back Sunday has toured with Oklahoma's The All-American Rejects. Both bands have enjoyed immense success selling millions of albums and touring worldwide and they felt that the time was right to combine forces for a series of dates. Florida's Anberlin, who recently experienced some breakthrough success with a #1 Modern Rock hit off of their current album New Surrender will join the bill as support.
Coming off of a sold-out world tour, multi-platinum recording artists, The All-American Rejects are keeping busy. The All-American Rejects' third CD When the World Comes Down is the follow-up to their double platinum release, Move Along. The first single "Gives You Hell" spent 4 weeks at #1 on the Billboard charts and sold over 3.2 million in digital downloads. The band has also been making the rounds on national television shows including The Today Show and The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien.
Taking Back Sunday are touring behind their fourth studio album, New Again which was the third consecutive Taking Back Sunday album to debut in the top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. The album was released by Warner Bros. Records on June 2nd and the band celebrated with a performance of their Top 10 Modern Rock hit "Sink Into Me" on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Produced by David Kahne, New Again has earned effusive critical praise. Rolling Stone declared the track "Sink Into Me", "the first song by an emo-pop band that the Foo Fighters wish they'd written: Catchy, lusty and sleekly propulsive." They have been playing to sold-out audiences for months and recently headlined the Bamboozle Festival in New Jersey with No Doubt to a crowd of over 30,000.
