All Time Low hail from Towson, Maryland (a suburb in Baltimore) and have been a band since forming during their high school years in 2003. They began as a blink-182 cover band before bringing out their own music on debut EP ‘The Three Words to Remember in Dealing with the End’ through local label Emerald Moon.
The band consists of:
Lead Vocalist/Rhythm Guitar: Alex Gaskarth
Lead Guitarist/Back up Vocalist: Jack Barakat
Bass/Back up Vocalist: Zack Merrick
Drums: Rian Dawson
With All Time Low powering through their 15-year-career with plenty of Australian tours, it’s no surprise they’re already on their way back down here. With a new album on its way, the band has released two singles Everything Is Fine and Birthday, and are gearing up to present this to their Australian audience in December.
Through collaborations with Pierce The Veil‘s Vic Fuentes and featuring cameos from the likes of blink-182’s Mark Hoppus and Fall Out Boy‘s Pete Wentz the band have explored many options to extend their audience reach. While they’ve adapted to change in the music scene with a slight alteration in sound, they’ve not forgotten where they started all those years ago and always bring back old hits that haven’t been played in a long time.
The last time All Time Low were on our shores was May 2017 with Neck Deep and The Maine. The tour was a massive success with all three bands releasing new music right before that tour. With dates nearly selling out the nights were full of energised fans singing back and forth with the band. The band love to personalise their set with occasionally bringing fans onstage to sing certain songs with them like Time Bomb.
Definitely a band to witness at Good Things festival in December as the band will be performing hits from their seven-album, 15-year history as a band. Whether you’re a new fan or one thats been around since the start there is something to catch your attention. Pop punk-heavy tunes, cinematics and inappropriate jokes alike, there is something for everyone.
