Taking Back Sunday Contest Winners!

We want to thank everyone who took the time to enter our Taking Back Sunday contest!

We assigned a number to every entry and then generated a winning number at The winner was Natalene Ong. Congrats!! Your prize pack is in the mail.

However, since she lived out of state and couldn’t use the tickets to Friday’s show, we drew another winner via just for the tickets and they went to Gustavo Lopez. Lopez does a mean email version of Macho Man Randy Savage, so we hope he had fun at the show.

Yup, that’s how we roll here at CitySurfing Orlando. We made sure all parts of the prize would be used, so we had two winners. Congrats to Natalene and Gustavo!!

Thanks muchly to Taking Back Sunday, Coca Cola, Warner Bros. Records and Jay for help in putting this contest together. Stay tuned for upcoming giveaways!

Win a Taking Back Sunday Prize Pack Including Tickets to the July 8 House of Blues Orlando Show

In 2002, Taking Back Sunday burst out into the music scene with their debut album, ” Tell All Your Friends.” A year later two members quit to do other projects, but the band carried on, replaced them, and released the 2004 album “Where You Want to Be.” Two years later, they debuted on a major label with their third album, “Louder Now,” followed by “New Again” in 2008.

Last year, Taking Back Sunday went back to the Tell All Your Friends line up, and recorded their fifth self-titled album, “Taking Back Sunday,” which comes out today, June 28, 2011. The band is currently streaming tracks from it at their Facebook page, and I think it sounds really good.

Of course with every album comes the tour, and Taking Back Sunday is on one (tour, that is) with guests Thursday and Colour Revolt. They will be hitting the House of Blues Orlando (at Downtown Disney) on July 8, 2011. Tickets are $27.50 in advance or $30.50 day of.
