All Time Low’s 2017 record Last Young Renegade is going to be revisited as the band are teaming with Z2 Comics for a Young Renegades graphic novel, the band’s comic debut.
The record which saw the band dive into a new sound and more conceptual stories with music videos will be further explored with Z2 Comics, writer Tres Dean, Heartthrob co-creator Robert Wilson IV and artist Megan Huang.
“When we wrote our album Last Young Renegade we imagined an entire world separate of our own – almost a ‘what if’ version of All Time Low, both with our musical sound and with the visual narrative we put together around it,” explains Alex Gaskarth. “Creating Young Renegades the graphic novel allows us to tell more stories in the universe we imagined and delve deeper into the mythos and thematic ideas that were at play when we were celebrating that era. Young Renegades is another branch, another thread and another look into the LYR continuity through an incredible medium we’ve never collaborated in before.
“Working with the storytellers and artists on this project has been an incredible new undertaking and we can’t wait for everyone to enjoy it with us.”
Teasing at what’s to come from Young Renegades, a synopsis reads: “Who needs a high school reunion when your favourite band is playing a secret show the same night? That’s what Connor and Becca, two classmates who never crossed paths until their 10-year reunion, decide when they hear about a secret All Time Low show in town. As they follow the clues to the secret location, they begin to realise that larger forces are pushing them together and learn the power of hearing the right song in the right place at the right time.”
