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. SWMRS, Waterparks, The Wrecks, and Night Riots will open during the excursion. The complete list of tour dates can be seen below.

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.

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.

First wave of Alternative Press Music Awards performers announced

The Journeys Alternative Press Music Awards, Fueled by Monster Energy Drink is a couple of months away from happening and the people behind the annual music awards have just unveiled the first wave of performers. On Monday (April 17), Alternative Press unveiled that bands like All Time Low, New Years Day, Sleeping with Sirens, Pierce the Veil, and The Pretty Reckless, and more are just some of the artists heading to Ohio in mid-July.

In addition to the above mentioned acts, rap icon Bone Thugs (the extension of Bone Thugs N Harmony), Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Against Me!, Machine Gun Kelly, and metal icons Korn will also grace the stage during the show.

“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.”

Tickets for the rock music-centric awards show are currently on sale at Alternative Presswebsite. In addition to general tickets which will set you back $40, several VIP packages are available including the Monster VIP Table, the Ultimate VIP, and Premium Seating packages.

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.

LAST YOUNG RENEGADE TRACK LISTING:

1. “Last Young Renegade”
2. “Drugs & Candy”
3. “Dirty Laundry”
4. “Good Times”
5. “Nice2KnoU”
6. “Life of the Party”
7. “Nightmares”
8. “Dark Side of Your Room”
9. “Ground Control” (feat. Tegan and Sara)
10. “Afterglow”

All Time Low releases new song, sign with Fueled By Ramen

Over the past week, the guys from All Time Low had been posting cryptic, short clips on social media. When the random clips began to be shared across all the band’s social media platforms, fans knew that something was brewing, but they just weren’t sure what it meant. Now, after days of waiting, the four-piece has unveiled what all the messages meant. On Friday (Feb. 17), the Baltimore-based band released a brand new song; their first in almost two years. The new track, the first since 2015’s Future Hearts, is titled “Dirty Laundry” and can be streamed above.

Prior to the Friday morning reveal, frontman Alex Gaskarth sat down with Alternative Press to discuss the direction of the new song. According to Gaskarth, “Dirty Laundry” is supposed to be like a reset button on the band’s sound. He compares it to 2012’s Don’t Panic in that regard saying that they want to change their sound a bit and keep pushing the envelope.

“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,” Gaskarth explains to the publication.

“Then [there was] Future Hearts, and that felt like we started pushing the envelope forward and trying to expand the sound and grow. ‘Dirty Laundry’ is a continuation of that. It’s taking the idea from the last album and continuing to push it forward and explore new things.” To read Gaskarth’s full interview, head on over to Alternative Press‘ website here.

As if releasing a brand new, different sounding song wasn’t enough to satisfy fans, the band also announced that they had left their longtime home of Hopeless Records for Fueled By Ramen. Every album, with the except of their debut and Dirty Work, has been released through Hopeless Records. Int hat same interview, Garskath reveals that when they were first starting, they actually performed for the Fueled by Ramen.

“It’s pretty crazy, actually, because the first label we ever showcased for was Fueled By Ramen when they were down in Florida, so signing with them now was 10 or 11 years in the making,” continues the singer. “What we’re really grateful [for] is they’re such a good family. We’ve always loved Fueled By Ramen, we’ve always been fans of the bands on the label.”

By joining the Fueled by Ramen family, all Time Low will be in good company counting bands like Panic! at the Disco, Twenty One Pilots, Paramore, 3OH!3, Young the Giant, and more as family members.

All Time Low closes out ‘Future Hearts’ era with ‘Take Cover’

DSC01380

To say All Time Low has had a busy couple of years, might be an understatement. Since the release of their sixth studio album, 2015’s Future Hearts, the band has been touring relentlessly behind the album. Things haven’t changed with the four-piece currently opening for Blink-182 on their massive “California” summer tour. With a week left until the release of their second DVD, Straight to DVD II: Present, Past, and Future Hearts, the band has released a track that will officially close out the Future Hearts era.

On Friday (Sept. 2), the Baltimore-founded band released “Take Cover.” The track, according to both frontman Alex Gaskarth and guitarist Jack Barakat, marks the end of this era of the band. “So proud of what we accomplished on Future Hearts. Pumped for you guys to see the DVD! ‘Take Cover’ is the perfect ‘last song’ for the album,” Gaskarth posted on Twitter. “The song to close out the era of Future Hearts! I hope you like it. :),” echoes Barakat.

The music video for the new song is shot completely in black-and-white and alternates between a full screen and split screen footage. During the three-and-a-half minute clip, we are taken on a short ride on what it’s like to be All Time Low on tour. We see the band as they arrive at an airport and travel on a highway as they head to what we assume is a venue (we’re also going to assume it’s London’s Wembley Arena since that’s where STDII was shot).

Throughout the music video, we switch between footage of the band performing intimate shows, their dedicated fans, some behind-the-scenes antics (did you see Barakat in the mini fridge?), and then we see them on the massive stage, performing for their sold out crowd. Watch the music video for “Take Cover” below.

“Take Cover” is one of two never-before-heard song that will be featured on Straight to DVD II: Present, Past, and Future Hearts. Straight to DVD II was originally set to be released on Aug. 26, but was pushed back a couple of week. The CD/DVD combo will now be released on Sept. 9 through Hopeless Records. Pre-orders are currently available with the CD/DVD package available on the band’s website, while digital pre-orders are available on iTunes.

All Time Low announces ‘Straight to DVD II’

A few weeks back, the guys from All Time Low began to tease images on social media and advising fans to keep an eye out because something big was coming. At the time, the band’s multitude of fans began to speculate that they may release new music, but no definite answer was given by the band members. On Thursday (July 7), the Baltimore-founded band announced the release of their second live DVD. The DVD set which will feature a DVD and a CD will be titled Straight to DVD II: Present, Past, and Future Hearts; direct references to their previous DVD release (Straight to DVD) and their recently-released record (Future Hearts).

“Surprise! You can now pre-order the long-awaited sequel to STD,” the band wrote on Twitter with a link to their website where pre-orders are currently ongoing.

Like the 2010 release, which found the band performing at New York’s massive venue, Hammerstein Ballroom, Straight to DVD II  was filmed when the band performed London’s Wembley Arena. In addition to the performance, the DVD will also feature a slew of behind-the-scenes footage, two previously unreleased B-side tracks, and even some guest appearances like Josh Franceschi from English band You Me at Six. Check out the teaser for the upcoming release below as well as the track list for the CD/DVD combo.

STRAIGHT TO DVD II TRACK LIST:

01. “Intro”
02. “A Love Like War”
03. “Lost in Stereo”
04. “Heroes”
05. “Somewhere in Neverland”

Blink-182 release new single, announce massive summer tour

After what has felt like years of waiting for new Blink-182, the group’s new single has been unleashed. Earlier this week, the California-based band posted on social media that the lead single off of their highly anticipated new album would make its debut on KROQ’s The Kevin & Bean Show on Thursday. But similar to what happened to their last album, Neighborhoods, things were leaked a little bit ahead of schedule. On Wednesday (April 27), audio of the much-anticipated new single, which had been confirmed to be titled “Bored to Death,” was leaked onto the internet. Almost as quickly as it was posted on the inter-web (and YouTube), the track was taken down.

Figuring that most of their fan base had already heard the new song, the track made its official debut on radio stations across the country as well as the internet. Check out the official lyric video for the new song below.

In addition to the lyric video for “Bored to Death,” the band also confirmed that their new album will be titled California. The new record which will mark the band’s seventh studio album will feature a total of 16 new tracks including “Bored to Death.” California is set to be released on July 1 through BMG. The new album comes a year after the inner-band debacle of 2015 which resulted in Tom DeLonge’s exit and the addition of Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba.

In addition to the new single, album title, and release date, the trio has also announced a massive summer tour. The summer tour is set to kick off on July 22 at Viejas Arena in San Diego, CA and will wrap up more than two months later on Oct.1 at The Forum in Los Angeles. The trek will feature a massive lineup with A Day to Remember, the All American Rejects, All Time Low, and DJ Spider heading out on tour with Blink. The All American Rejects will support Blink-182 during the first month of the tour while All Time Low will complete the rest of the tour in AAR’s spot. The complete list of tour dates ca be seen below.

All Time Low get help from fans for “Missing You” video

image

Last week,  All Time announced that they would be releasing a music video for their track “Missing You.” On Tuesday (April 5), the Baltimore-based band unveiled the five-minute clip which finds the four guys video chatting with some of their fans from around the world. The video kicks off with a note describing the primary topic of the video. “In February 2016, All Time Low sat down to surprise video chat some of their fans from all over the world…” says the graphic.

As with any fan who gets the chance to speak with their favorite musician, they are shocked and elated at first. after the initial surprise, the guys begins by thanking those lucky recipients for being fans of the band and then ask when they first heard about the group. Eventually, the chats do get a little deep as the fans do express what the band means to them and all the times that ATL’s music has help them through sticky situations.

The song, which might be the most serious track on their recently released album, Future Hearts has been a favorite of the band. In several interviews, they have spoken about how it was by far their favorite, unanimously, from the album. Check out the music video for “Missing You.”

All Time Low is currently in the middle of a long-awaited break. The Baltimore band spent much of 2015 on the road in support of Future Hearts. As of now, they have been confirmed as one of the many bands to take the stage during the 2016 Alternative Press Music Awards. Like last year’s awards, frontman Alex Gaskarth and guitarist Jack Barakat will hold down the fort at the hosts of the show.
