Our music scene is going through an interesting cycle in the present day. There have been a large influx of young bands that have provided great excitement and passion for us all in the last few years, but we’re also entering a time where the influences of those bands are celebrating major anniversaries for their most loved albums. Bands like Taking Back Sunday, Brand New, and New Found Glory, among many others, have seen ten year anniversaries come and go. We all expect there to be more than a few great ten year tours in 2013, but PropertyOfZack team members put together a list of a few more albums that we want more than anything to see toured in full in 2013. Check out the full Discussion and feel free to reblog with any albums you think need to be championed as underrated masterpieces too!

blink-182 - Untitled 
My favorite blink-182 record. Untitled pushed blink past pop-punk sing-alongs and dick jokes. It showed a band that could create powerful song after powerful song yet still packed with hugely successful singles with “Feeling This,” “I Miss You,” and “Down.” Regardless of their initial success however, blink never quite got to capatlize on Untitled due to their break-up in early-2005. A tour on this album would be filled with fans who were too young to see them at that point in time and the rest of their passionate fan base. Imagine if this was a Dollar Bill kind of tour too? Please Mark, Tom, and Travis. Please? - Zack Zarrillo

Brand New - Deja Entendu 
Brand New toes the “will-they-won’t-they” line down to a science. They’re one of a handful of bands that ended up on just about everyone’s most anticipated albums of 2013 lists, even though concrete evidence that they’ve actually been working on new material is pretty much nonexistent. One of the best ways they can tide over a restless fanbase before (finally!) releasing new songs is by performing a whole bunch of old favorites. Like touring on Deja Entendu ten years later and playing the whole damn album cover to cover.  

Deja tour would put nostalgia on full blast for Brand New’s fanbase, and would bring fans both old and new out in droves. Brand New’s enigmatic frontman Jesse Lacey is probably over some of the songs he penned ten years ago, and even more tired of playing others, but just the chance of hearing some underplayed classics would draw enormous crowds. Deja isn’t as refined or focused as Daisy or The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me, but the sheer energy of the album’s forty-nine minute runtime would make for a killer concert.

It wouldn’t be new music, but for fans waiting on bated breath for news from Brand New’s camp, a Deja Entendu anniversary tour might be the next best alternative. - Erik van Rheenen

Fall Out Boy - Take This To Your Grave 
I mean, duh. Fall Out Boy has been gone for a while and we’ve just heard confirmations of their reunion - what better way to make a splash in their first year back in the game than to do an anniversary tour for the record that kicked off their legendary career? Take This To Your Grave is more than just a part of Fall Out Boy lore, though; it’s a quintessential album for the genre. When someone asks you what pop-punk sounds like, you might as well just shoo them away and tell them to listen to this album. It’s near-perfect in every aspect, and nostalgia rings hard with a record like this. A 10-year tour would be an enormous event for these guys…and aside from the new album they announced yesterday, this should be No. 1 on every Fall Out Boy fan’s list this year- Thomas Nassiff

Less Than Jake - Anthem 
Less Than Jake fans love Anthem as much as, or more, than Losing Streak and Hello Rockview. I’d expect the ska-punk legends to celebrate Anthem’s 10 year anniversary as much as they celebrated their 20 year anniversary in 2013 with a full-album tour. Singles like “Look What Happened” and “The Science of Selling Yourself Short” were the band’s most successful releases, and just part of why Less Than Jake should make a big splash with an Anthem tour preceding their next full-length record. - Zack Zarrillo

Coheed And Cambria - In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3 
Coheed And Cambria debuted their unique blend of emo-tinged progressive rock in 2002, but it was 2003’s In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3 that broke them to the masses. More than just their commercial breakthru, IKSOSE:3 is the perfect Cliff Notes for Coheed’s discography, with a little taste of everything that makes the band both great and distinctive. It has it all: an epic, sprawling opener with a rafter-rattling chant-along coda (the title track); a pair of concise, radio ready pop songs with huge hooks (“Blood Red Summer” and “A Favor House Atlantic”); a three part progressive suite (“The Camper Velourium”); and even a fragile acoustic ballad (“The Light And The Glass”).

But beyond all that, IKSOSE:3 belongs here because Coheed & Cambria albums are meant to be listened to in sequence and in full. The album exists as part of a rich, complex universe, and listening to these songs out of order is kind of like taking a book and shuffling the chapters. Even if you dont know a Keywork from a Kilgannon, there’s a deliberate pacing to the tracks on IKSOSE:3; it flows from number to number like a carefully crafted mixtape, and hearing those tracks in the order they were intended makes for an experience even greater than the sum of its parts.

Coheed held a series of “Neverender” shows in 2008, playing their entire catalog in order for a few select cities; 2013 would be the perfect time to let the rest of their fanbase experience a small slice of The Amory Wars the way it was truly intended. - Jesse Richman
