Formed in 2003 in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland, All Time Low started out as a high school cover band before morphing into a melodic pop-punk act influenced by predecessors like and . An enduring presence in the late-2000s scene, they were a Warped Tour mainstay from their breakthrough sophomore set, So Wrong, It’s Right (2007), to their chart-peak sixth LP Future Hearts (2015). Following a late-career dip into pop with 2017’s Last Young Renegade, they returned to their punk roots at the start of the 2020s with Wake Up, Sunshine.
Singer/guitarist Alex Gaskarth and guitarist Jack Barakat were All Time Low’s co-founders, with bassist Zack Merrick and drummer Rian Dawson rounding out their energetic pop-punk sound and rowdy live shows, which often included silly string and beach balls. Honing their skills between homework and other teenage commitments, the guys managed to tour across the East Coast and the South during school breaks. They issued a four-song EP, 2004’s The Three Words to Remember in Dealing with the End, with help from local label , and followed its release with a full-length album, The Party Scene, one year later.
Touring across the country that summer, the guys found themselves on bills with similar acts like , , and . Along the way, All Time Low also bumped into fellow pop-punkers , who brought the young band to the attention of their label, Hopeless Records. The label was immediately impressed, and All Time Low had officially become part of the Hopeless family by March 2006, just a few months shy of the members’ high-school graduation. Finally done with schoolwork and able to concentrate full-time on music, the group issued Put Up or Shut Up — a seven-song EP that mostly featured new recordings of older material — that July.
All Time Low supported the EP’s release with a handful of Warped Tour dates before hitting the road again with . So Wrong, It’s Right appeared in 2007, marking the band’s first full-length release for Hopeless. After being named 2008’s Band of the Year by Alternative Press, All Time Low returned with their second album, Nothing Personal, in July 2009. Debuting at number four on the Billboard charts, Nothing Personal helped make All Time Low one of the top emo-pop acts in the business. Two CD/DVD packages, MTV Unplugged and Straight to DVD, were released the following year, tiding fans over while the guys returned to the studio to begin work on their major-label debut for .
Dirty Work, featuring the single “I Feel Like Dancin’,” was released in 2011. The album reached number six on the Billboard charts the week it was released, and the band hit the road. In 2012, All Time Low announced they had parted ways with and released a new song, “The Reckless and the Brave,” on their website in June. Soon after, they re-signed with Hopeless and began work on a new album. Don’t Panic was released in November 2012, then reissued almost a year later with four newly recorded songs and four acoustic versions under the name Don’t Panic: It’s Longer Now! In 2015, All Time Low returned with their sixth record, Future Hearts, which found them reuniting with their Dirty Work producer, John Feldmann. In 2016, they released Straight to DVD 2: Past, Present & Future, a sequel to the 2010 live album. In February 2017, All Time Low issued the single “Dirty Laundry” in anticipation of their seventh studio long-player, Last Young Renegade, that arrived in June of that year. Renegade was their first effort issued on , and featured the singles “Nice2KnoU” and the pop-focused “Life of the Party.” Their fifth consecutive Top Ten record, the set’s unabashed pop polish proved divisive and, after the era came to a close, the band got to work on a course-correcting follow-up.
In 2018, the summery and anthemic one-off single “Everything Is Fine” offered a taste of things to come with album number eight, which landed in early 2020. Wake Up, Sunshine saw All Time Low returning to their pop-punk roots after a brief pop foray on 2017’s Renegade. Featuring appearances by and , the upbeat LP reached number on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart, buoyed by singles like “Some Kind of Disaster” and “Monster,” the latter of which was re-released in December 2020 with guest vocals from . The following year saw the band team up with English indie rockers for the single “PMA” before returning with 2022’s “Sleepwalking.”
Alternative mainstay Mayday Parade continue their legacy with the release of their 7th full-length album, ‘What It Means To Fall Apart’ – out via Rise Records. The album sees the band reunited with longtime producers Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount. ‘What It Means To Fall Apart’ follows the release of 2018’s Sunnyland LP, the band’s 6th full-length album which has streamed over 81 million times and took the band to five continents since its release. Since making their debut with 2007’s certified Gold album, ‘A Lesson in Romantics’, the band has sold over 1.6 million albums in the US alone, steadily amassing a worldwide following. Through the years, their chemistry has only gotten more potent and with ‘What It Means To Fall Apart’, they’re proving that their dedication to emotionally aware, fan-driven music, hasn’t changed either.
SUP LADIES. Max, Aaron, and I (Emmyn) have been best friends since birth. We met at a show Miami, and had no idea how significant this show would be to us. We took over Miami. The entire city. Big whoop.
Fast forward a year we moved to Nashville, TN. We hit the ground running. We quickly made our mark on the scene; opening shows for our favorite bands. Shorty after these shows COVID-19 CAME THRU TOWN GUNS A-BLAZIN. Next thing you know, Aaron & I (its max now, btw) are back with our parents in South Florida. Emmyn found success in TN, making hilarious youtube videos with his wife, I spent the whole year locked away honing in on my already BO-NANAS writing and production skills, and Aaron got HELLA good at Call of Duty : Warzone.
In January 2021, Emmyn rounded up the gang & suggested that we strap back in and go legitimately BALLISTIC. It was that fait-full January evening that we wrote our very first x10 future Platinum #1 song. We wrote every night until we had 4 absolute future x10 Platinum #1’s, 4 songs that we and our friends loved (it’s Aaron now). We flew to LA shortly after and recorded them with our producer/lover Kyle Black. We now live in LA.
After a TikTok went viral featuring our new song Deadbeat, we had to push the release of Deadbeat up to July 23rd. Deadbeat perfectly portrays the past two years for us. It’s about feeling lonely, being depressed, and not being able to leave the house. Deadbeat is everything to us and we hope you like it. MAD LOVE.
