The good news? The All Time Low guys are getting the band back together for a couple of shows.
The bad news? The “couple of shows” are only three gigs.
Sorry guys. It looks like it’s not your weekend OR your year.
On Tuesday (Sept. 24), the Baltimore-founded band announced plans to hit the road for a handful of shows in December to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their third studio album, Nothing Personal. The first show will take place on Dec. 16 at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. The second show will invade the House of Blues in Chicago on Dec. 20. The final gig will happen at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey on Dec. 27.
What’s surprising about this limited engagement is the fact that the group completely omitted their hometown from the list. We know that’s really surprising considering they have a song titled “For Baltimore” (featured on 2012’s Don’t Panic)
Tickets go on sale this Friday, Sept. 27. If you’re a member of their Hustlers fan club, you may want to log on ASAP for pre-sale information. According to the four-piece, they will perform the album in full during the forthcoming outing.
In addition to the three shows, the group previously announced plans to release a re-recorded version of the 2009 release. In July, they revealed that they had returned to the RedBull Studios to record a newer version of the 12-track album.
“10 years later we return to the scene of the crime: Filmed and tracked live at RedBull Studios, we take a look back at All Time Low’s album Nothing Personal. Coming soon!” the group tweeted this past summer.
At the time, the band had no projected release date for the reworked album, but now it looks like it will be here just in time for the upcoming celebration. It’s Still Nothing Personal: A Ten Year Tribute is due out Nov. 8. Pre-orders are now available on the act’s website.
Nothing Personal was released on July 7, 2009, through All Time Low’s former home of Hopeless Records. (They switched to Fueled by Ramen in 2017 for the release of their seventh studio album Last Young Renegade.)
The record features several fan (and our) favorites such as “Weightless,” “Damned If I Do Ya (Damned If I Don’t),” “A Party Song (The Walk of Shame),” and “Lost in Stereo.”
Nothing Personal reached the number one spot on three Billboard charts: Alternative Albums, Independent Albums, and Top Rock Albums.
The album has since been certified Gold by both the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) and Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
