Taking Back Sunday plans to introduce its upcoming “Tidal Wave” album with a short tour of small clubs, including a stop at Revolution Bar and Music Hall in Amityville on Oct. 4.

Though the Long Island band just played Nikon at Jones Beach Theater and other amphitheaters across the country last month, they wanted to play their new music in more intimate settings, like the 300-capacity Revolution.

“Our idea is to go to the smallest clubs we can go to,” singer Adam Lazzara said in a statement. “We’d like to debut this record as honestly as we can and what better way to do that in a small club?”

Tickets for the Revolution show go on sale at noon Thursday through TicketWeb, 866-777-8932,

The first leg of the Taking Back Sunday tour kicks off Sept. 17 in Omaha, Nebraska, and runs through Oct. 20 in Los Angeles. “Tidal Wave,” produced by Bethpage’s Mike Sapone, will be released on Sept. 16 through Hopeless Records. The Ramones-influenced title track is already available as a single.

“I think this record is going to help us reconnect with our old fans as well as cross paths with some new ones,” Lazzara said. “But in the end, we wrote it for ourselves and we couldn’t be happier with it.”
