        Taking Back Sunday will launch an international tour next month in England to promote its upcoming “Happiness Is” album, due out March 18.

        The Rockville Centre-based band will play Best Buy Theater on April 15 as part of the American leg of the tour, which they will co-headline with The Used. (UPDATE: They've added a second show on April 16.) Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday through AXS. A pre-sale begins at 2 p.m. today, through the artists’ fan clubs and at 10 a.m. Wednesday for American Express cardholders.

        Taking Back Sunday also unveiled the video for its new single, “Flicker, Fade,” today. “We haven't made a video in a while and we didn't want to overthink it, so we connected with some creative folks and said, ‘Remember when music videos could just be about a song?’” singer Adam Lazzara said in a statement. “We found a cool location that we feel matched the mood of ‘Flicker, Fade’ and made a performance video that showcased the song itself.  The result was exactly what we were chasing. No heavy story line to distract from the mood, just a moment in time to live inside the music we created.”
