John Nolan and Shaun Cooper left the band in 2003 only to rejoin in 2010, in time for the band's release of their eponymous album Taking Back Sunday on June 28, 2011.
The album was produced by Eric Valentine and released through Warner Bros. In 2014, the band released their sixth studio album Happiness Is to positive reviews.
They also contributed the song "Your Own Disaster" to the Elektra soundtrack, and "Error: Operator" to both the Fantastic Four film soundtrack and its video game tie-in, where it served as Mister Fantastic's theme.
An instrumental version is also used as background music in the game (though the band was initially hesitant).
They used the Taking Back Sunday street team, consisting of about 25,000, to promote the album.
On April 25, 2006, Taking Back Sunday released their third album, entitled Louder Now, on Warner Bros. The members' comments on the album reflected the dramatic change the band had undergone in the two years since their last release.The original Tell All Your Friends line-up reunited in 2010 and has released three studio albums: Taking Back Sunday, Happiness Is, and Tidal Wave.Louder Now (2006) was the band's breakout mainstream album, notably because of the popularity of its lead single "Make Damn Sure".Taking Back Sunday received mainstream exposure by appearing on the late night talk shows The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Late Night with Conan O'Brien, as well as the teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation in an episode entitled "What's It Feel Like To Be A Ghost? In December 2006, the band released its first CD/ documentary, Louder Now: Part One, featuring behind-the-scenes tour footage and four live concerts.
