It’s been nearly two years since pop-punk band All Time Low released an album. Recently, they dropped a new single and announced their seventh studio album, Last Young Renegade, on the band’s Instagram page. The band also announced that they left their previous label Hopeless Records, and signed to Fueled by Ramen, the home of alternative powerhouses Paramore and Twenty One Pilots. The album is available for pre-order now and will released on June 2.
The first single off the album is titled “Dirty Laundry.” The song depicts a relationship that seems to have previous issues, insinuating that the woman lead singer Alex Gaskarth is singing about has some dirty laundry still in her closet. However, instead of judgement, Gaskarth recognizes that he has his own skeletons. Despite both of their pasts, he’s still crazy about her, stating “I don’t care about what you did, only care about what we do.” The video uses the metaphor of Gaskarth waiting for his clothes in a laundromat, while a hallucination of what his life has been like with this girl is happening.
With a new album comes a tour. In November, before any mention of a new album or single, All Time Low announced a UK tour with fellow Fueled By Ramen band SWMRS. The tour kicks off in March, and last week All Time Low announced that the tour with SWMRS will be continuing to the US during the summer. The US lineup also includes Waterparks and The Wrecks as opening acts. Tickets go on sale to the general public on March 3 but those who pre-order their album get access to a pre-sale on March 1.
