"Sink Into Me" is a song by the American rock band Taking Back Sunday. It was released as a single on April 27, 2009. The song impacted radio on April 28. The song is featured on the band's fourth album, New Again, which was released on June 2, 2009. The music video was released on May 11, 2009 on MTV.com, MTV2, MTVU and MTV Hits.
On June 2, the day New Again was released, "Sink Into Me" was performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The band performed with a third guitarist, Isaac Bolivar, as well as having backing vocals and handclaps supplied by members of Envy on the Coast and Anberlin. The backing vocalists all donned yellow T-shirts with the phrase "I USED TO BE IN TAKING BACK SUNDAY" on them - a reference to the constant line-up changes the band has undergone. Despite the success of the single, since the reunion of the Tell All Your Friends lineup, the song has often been left off setlists.
The music video for "Sink Into Me" begins with slow motion of Adam Lazzara's face and the band performing in front of an audience in an undisclosed location. During the performance a black, glue-like liquid begins to drip from the ceiling and the band is slowly "sinking" into the stage, which is descending. The music video ends with Adam fully sinking into the glue and throwing the drum kit.
Directed by Travis Kopach. Casting was set in Brooklyn, NY and the audience is made up of fans wishing to partake in the video.
"Sink Into Me" became Taking Back Sunday's second top-ten hit on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart (after "MakeDamnSure"), reaching number ten, and was also their first entry on the new Rock Songs chart, where it reached number thirty-two.
