All Time Low drop surprise new single ‘Everything is Fine’

Following 24 hours of cryptic posts on social media, All Time Low unveiled what they were hiding. On Wednesday (June 13), the Baltimore-founded band unleashed their first new song in an over year. Titled “Everything is Fine,” the new tune sounds like it could easily find a home on either the band’s 2011 release Dirty Work or 2012’s Don’t Panic! Lyrically though, the song sounds like it could be a B-side off their recently released record, Last Young Renegade.

Listen to “Everything is Fine” above.

The new song’s debut comes a day after frontman Alex Gaskarth questioned whether his Twitter followers would be interested in some new music.

“You guys like new music or what?” the musician wrote on the social media platform.

Soon after, every social media account associated with the band and its members posted an image with the words “everything is fine” on it. While fans now know that the cryptic posts were about the new song, the band has yet to elaborate on whether this song will be a one-off single or if it will be part of a brand new album.

All Time Low released their seventh studio album, Last Young Renegade, last June making it their first release through their new home of Fueled By Ramen.

Later this summer, the four-piece will embark on the first leg of their Summer Ever After tour with Dashboard Confessional. The tour will begin on Aug. 3 at the Myth Live on St. Paul, Minnesota and conclude a few weeks later on Aug. 26 at the Stone Pony Summerstage in Asbury Park, New Jersey.

Prior to the summertime trek, All Time Low will play three California stops on the final Vans Warped Tour. After that, they will head out to Chicago to perform at this year’s Lollapalooza.

All Time Low and Dashboard Confessional to live ‘Summer Ever After’

Ready to add another huge tour to your lengthy summertime concert schedule? If not, it’s time to do so. On Monday (May 14) All Time Low and Dashboard Confessional announced plans to hit the road together during the month of August. Titled the “Summer Ever After” tour, the excursion will kick off on Aug. 3 at Myth Live in St. Paul, Minnesota. After spending a couple of weeks traveling across the continent, the trek will conclude its first leg on Aug. 26 at the Stone Pony Summerstage in Asbury Park, New Jersey. The tour dates for the second leg of the excursion will reportedly be announced within the next few weeks.

Taking to social media, both bands announced the upcoming co-headlining tour in their own special way.

“This could be the end of an era…or a new beginning…or some kind of endless summer. We haven’t totally figured it out yet, but what we do know is that we ain’t finished rippin’ gigs for you this year!!!” posted All Time Low on their official Twitter account.

As for Dashboard, they took a more direct approach with their announcement: “We’ve been keeping this a secret for far too long…The Summer Ever After tour with All Time Low and support from Gnash.”

As confirmed by Dashboard, singer-songwriter Gnash will be the groups’ direct supporting act. Tickets for the “Summer Ever After” tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, May 18, at 10 a.m. local time.

Fan club and Citi pre-sales will begin this Tuesday, May 15, at 10 a.m. local time and conclude on Thursday. All other pre-sales will begin on Thursday, May 17. For more details about the upcoming tour, you can head on over to either All Time Low‘s or Dashboard Confessional‘s websites.

The upcoming tour will be in support of All Time Low’s recently released record, Last Young Renegade. The band’s seventh studio album was released back in June of 2017 and quickly landed at the number nine spot on Billboard’s 200 chart. This album also marked the group’s first with their new record label, Fueled By Ramen.

Prior to embarking on the “Summer Ever After” tour, All Time Low will play three California dates on the final Vans Warped Tour. After that, they will head out to Chicago to perform at this year’s Lollapalooza.

Much like All Time Low, the upcoming tour will be in support of Dashboard Confessional’s recently released record, Crooked Shadow. Their seventh studio album also marks their first record to be released via their new home of Fueled By Ramen.

Watch All Time Low bring their live show to the small screen in ‘Afterglow’

The last year was a busy one for the guys of All Time Low between nonstop touring, releasing a new album, a wedding, and more, so it’s not that surprising that things have been a little quiet over there. On Wednesday (April 25), the Baltimore-based band sort of returned when they released the live music video for their song, “Afterglow.” Taking to social media the day before the video’s debut, the band posted a message urging their Hustlers (name of their fan club) to log in for a special surprise.

Less than 12 hours after giving the gift to their fan club members first, the music video for the closing track on Last Young Renegade was released to the general public. The four-minute clip has a simple premise;  live shots of the group performing at the Alexandria Palace in London. Though most of the video features the band performing, it also incorporated footage of them behind-the-scenes as well as their fans.

“We released a live video for ‘Afterglow’ last night, shot at Alexandria Palace in London. We let it trickle out through our fan-club first, so if you missed the memo, go check it out now,” the band posted on Twitter. Watch the clip above.

“Afterglow” is featured on All Time Low’s most recent album, Last Young Renegade. The record, the group’s seventh studio album, was released back in June of 2017 and quickly landed at the number nine spot on Billboard‘s 200 chart selling 33,000 units in its first week.

This summer, All Time Low will continue their nonstop touring schedule with a set at Lollapalooza and a handful of dates on the final Vans Warped Tour.

Watch: All Time Low drop live video for ‘Drugs & Candy’

All Time Low released their seventh album last June, earning them the number nine spot on Billboard‘s 200 chart. After being on the road for most of 2017, the group has returned to treat fans to a brand new music video. On Monday (Jan. 29), the Baltimore-based band unleashed their live music video for their latest single, “Drugs & Candy.”

The almost four-minute clip features footage from the band’s travels across the world throughout 2017 as well as footage from their show in Amsterdam. In an interview with Billboard, frontman Alex Gaskarth admits that it was purely coincidental that the name of the song is “Drugs & Candy” and that the performance was shot in Amsterdam.

“A lot of people have pointed out the irony of attaching a song called ‘Drugs & Candy’ to Amsterdam, but that was not the intention,” Gaskarth admits. “A lot of people were like, ‘You realize what you’re doing, right?’ Just a happy accident.”

As it turns out, the real reason behind shooting in Amsterdam had more to do with the fans embracing the Maryland four-piece which eventually led to them selling out the arena.

“The real reason was that it was one of the biggest shows we ever played in Amsterdam. Amsterdam, for whatever reason, has really embraced this band and the shows keep getting bigger and bigger.”

Watch the music video for “Drugs & Candy” above while Gaskarth’s full interview with Billboard can be read here.

“Drugs & Candy” is featured on All Time Low’s recently released record, Last Young Renegade. The record includes a total of five hit singles; “Good Times,” “Nice2KnoU,” “Life of the Party,” “Last Young Renegade” and first single, “Dirty Laundry.”

In support of Last Young Renegade, All Time Low will continue their Young Renegades world tour. Prior to embarking on the second leg of their North American Young Renegades tour, All Time Low will stop in Europe with Creeper to celebrate the anniversary of their hit sophomore album So Wrong, It’s Right. During those shows, the group will perform the album in full.

After wrapping up the short European excursion in March, the band will take a few weeks off before kicking off their North American trek on April 6 at Piere’s in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

All Time Low address social issues with ‘Good Times’

Following several days of posts on social media about something big coming before the end of the week, All Time Low has kept their word. On Wednesday (Nov. 1), the Baltimore-based band unleashed the music video for their current single, “Good Times.” The four-minute-clip which was directed by Patrick Tracy begins with shots from the inside of a high school gymnasium after what appears to be a school dance. Blue and white balloons, blue streamers, a disco ball, and several chairs litter the gymnasium floor as evidence of a good time. The dimly lit shot transitions from the remnants of a fun evening to the everyday struggles of a group of high school students.

The viewer follows the everyday struggle of a group of teenagers who are individually going through different struggles. The viewer watches a girl being bullied by two of her classmates, a boy stuck inside of a house with feuding parents, two same-sex couples, a couple in an interracial relationship where one of their parents is not exactly thrilled by it, and a girl in a hijab getting things throw at her by a group of Confederate flag-totting boys.

While the video does show the struggle that each of the protagonists encounters, it also shows that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, even if it is just a high school dance.

“We are so proud of this video, of Pat who helped us bring it to life, the small glimpses into amazing lives we see within, and the beautiful, diverse people it represents,” frontman Alex Gaskarth said in a press release. “Always be exactly who you are, and don’t live in fear of someone else’s judgment. Be brave, be bold, and find your happiness in yourself and the ones you love.” Watch the music video for “Good Times” above.

“Good Times” is featured on All Time Low’s recently released record, Last Young Renegade. Last Young Renegade was released back in June and quickly landed at the number nine spot on Billboard‘s 200 chart selling 33,000 units in its first week.

In support of the album’s release, All Time Low has been touring around the world non-stop. Now that their non-stop touring schedule is coming to an end, the group will perform at a handful of radio station music festival throughout November. Once that mini tour comes to an end, the band will wrap up 2017 with three sold out shows at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey where they will celebrate the tenth anniversary of their debut album So Wrong, It’s Right.

All Time Low celebrates the ‘Good Times’ with final single

All Time Low’s new studio album, Last Young Renegade, is set to hit stores later this week, but that’s not stopping the group from releasing one final song from the impending release. On Wednesday (May 31), the Baltimore-based band unleashed their fifth and final single from the new album, “Good Times.” According to the band’s post on Twitter, this song was not only the first song to be written for the record, but it was also the one that set the whole tone for their seventh studio album.

“‘Good Times’ was the first song written for Last Young Renegade and it set the tone for the entire album,” reads the group’s post on their official Twitter account. Frontman Alex Gaskarth and guitarist Jack Barakat took to their own accounts to talk about the new tune as well.

“Alex sent me a demo of ‘Good Times’ 2 years ago. I called him and said this is the best song you’ve ever written,” wrote Barakat while Gaskarth kept it simple by writing “One of my favs ever.” Listen to “Good Times” here. According to the band, an official lyric video, which will feature fan-submitted artwork, will be released soon.

“Good Times” will join “Nice2KnoU,” “Life of the Party,” “Dirty Laundry,” and “Last Young Renegade” on the band’s upcoming album. Last Young Renegade is set to hit stores on June 2 and will mark the band’s first release through Fueled by Ramen. Those who pre-order the album will receive instant downloads of all five songs.

In support of Last Young Renegades, All Time Low will hit the road for a massive summer tour later this year. The “North American Young Renegades” tour will kick off  on June 30 at the House of Blues in Houston and wrap up a month and a half later on Aug. 6 at the House of Blues in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

Watch All Time Low honor their roots with ‘Nice2KnoU’

With two weeks until the release of their seventh studio album, All Time Low has treated fans to a fourth song off the impending release. On Friday (May 19), just a few hours after premiering the audio for the new single, the Baltimore-based band debuted the official music video for “Nice2KnoU.” The music video begins with a pay phone ringing and one of the guys, specifically bassist Zack Merrick, picking up the line. As he places the receiver to his ear, the viewer is transported to what appears to be a club with the four-piece performing the new tune.

The three-and-a-half minute clip continues with ever-changing footage of them performing in the club and exploring their hometown of Baltimore. During the stroll down memory lane, they visit several locations that helped shape them and pay tribute to them by leaving roses at each location. They stop at the Ottobar, where they claim to have played a million times; Pier Six Pavilion, which they headlined in 2015; Sidebar Tavern where they claim they played to no one in 2005 (quite surprising now); and Thames Street which they make a direct reference to in “Six Feet Under the Stars” on 2007’s So Wrong, It’s Right.

In a post on Facebook that accompanied the video, the group explains that it’s a love letter to the places and people who helped them get to where they are today.

“This one’s for the dance halls, the dive bars and the 100 kids we used to play for at the Ottobar every other weekend,” begins the band’s post.

“It’s a tribute to our roots and the history of a band that comes up in a small-town with a die-hard group of friends who all want something greater. It’s an ode to the late nights, filling up the van with half a tank of gas so we could leave for the next show before someone got jumped in the wrong part of town– Getting into Tampa at 3 a.m. and crashing on someone’s floor, saying thanks with a 30 of Coors Light and never seeing that face again. This is a dedication to all the places we’ve been that made us who we are today, the sea of sweaty hands that raised us up in low-lit clubs across America on our first tours, and all the people we owe these stories to; Nice to know you, see you ‘round.”

Watch the music video for “Nice2KnoU” above.

“Nice2KnoU” will join “Life of the Party,” “Dirty Laundry,” and “Last Young Renegade” on the band’s upcoming album. Last Young Renegade is set to hit stores on June 2 and will mark the band’s first release through Fueled by Ramen.

In support of Last Young Renegades, All Time Low will hit the road for a massive summer tour. The ‘North American Young Renegades’ tour will kick off at the House of Blues in Houston on June 30 and wrap up a month and a half later on Aug. 6 at the House of Blues in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. SWMRS, Waterparks, The Wrecks, and Night Riots will open during the excursion. The complete list of tour dates can be seen here.

All Time Low deliver third single from ‘Last Young Renegade’

Now that All Time Low has confirmed the release of their brand new album, the band does not seem to be holding back from giving fans smalls tastes of it. On Friday (April 28), the Baltimore-based band premiered the music video for their third single off Last Young Renegade. The new song is titled “Life of the Party” and marks the third single, or “third chapter,” of the new album.

The three-and-a-half minute clip features the band (whose alter-egos for this album are the Young Renegades) and a guy partying in a night club. Throughout the video, images of the guy and the band in the club slowly start to alternate between the darkly lit venue and a bright and white room. Watch the complete music video for “Life of the Party” above.

“Life of the Party” will joined recently released singles “Dirty Laundry” and “Last Young Renegade” on the band’s upcoming new album. Last Young Renegade is set to hit stores on June 2 and marks the group’s first release through Fueled by Ramen. Those who pre-order the album will receive instant downloads of all three singles. Last Young Renegade will be the follow-up to the band’s 2015 release, Future Hearts.

“We’re really excited to perform at this year’s awards and are looking forward to seeing all our fans in Cleveland,” Korn frontman Jonathan Davis said in a statement. “I performed at the first ever APMAs back in 2014 with Asking Alexandria, and it’s been awesome to watch how this show has grown over the years.”

All Time Low confirms the release of ‘Last Young Renegade’

About a week after the unveiling their brand new single, “Dirty Laundry,” All Time Low has returned to confirm the release of their seventh studio album. On Thursday (Feb. 23), following weeks of teasing fans on social media with snippets of artwork, the shared puzzle pieces came together to reveal the artwork for the band’s upcoming new album, Last Young Renegade. The new record is set to be released on June 2 and will mark the Baltimore-based band’s debut with Fueled by Ramen.

Pre-orders for the new album are set to go on sale beginning this Friday, Feb. 24. According to a statement from frontman Alex Gaskarth, the group will also offer some merchandise bundles for their followers to pick from.

Recently, Gaskarth sat down with Alternative Press to discuss the group’s new song and the new album, though no one at the time knew it. At the time of the interview, the band had not formally confirmed the release of a new album, but Gaskarth did imply that there would be new music on the horizon when he described the new music as a reset button on the band’s sound.

“I think one of the big things as we were working on the record was just pushing ourselves forward,”  Gaskarth explained to the publication. “When we put out Don’t Panic, we hit the reset button on the band and we started looking at Don’t Panic as if it was our first record out of the gate as a more realized version of All Time Low.”

Last Young Renegade will be the follow-up to the band’s 2015 release, Future Hearts. For now, the complete track list for Last Young Renegade can be found below.
