The question has been on everyone’s lips as of late; just when will All Time Low be back with new music?
speaking to KROQ at Coachella recently, Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat said: “Absolutely – We’re taking a little break, but hopefully by next year we’re going to be ready to go again.”
Then Jack said: “Alex is doing Simple Creatures, and I’m working on a little somethin’ somethin’.”
Jack continued “But the thing is, no matter what, All Time Low loves touring. Alex wants to do his thing, but I’m gonna make him come back.The thing is I was like ‘Alex I want to take the year off, you go do Simple Creatures, I want a break’ and he was like ‘let’s get back in the Fall’ and I’m like dude no – I want to sleep,” to which Alex replied “I’m a work horse! I like to work!”
No word yet on what the side project is but I’m sure all will be revealed in due time.
All Time Low are headlining this year’s Slam Dunk Festival which will take place on May 25 in Leeds and May 26 in Hatfield.
Alex Gaskarth (Simple Creatures, All Time Low) has been a busy man as of late. Firstly he formed and toured as part of the Superduo with Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus for Simple Creatures and recently, he made his debut performance at the US festival Coachella as he joined DJ Kayzo on stage to premiere the single, ‘Up In Flames.
The single has been teased for a while and more to the fact that All Time Low would be there to assist.
Does this mean that Alex will lend some vocals to their debut record? Well, it’s not the first superstar they’ve had the pleasure of working with. In the past as they have previously worked with Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz and Twenty One Pilots Josh Dun with the legendary John Feldman!
Only time will tell, but whatever it may be, it’ll probably be spectacular!
They’re gearing up for their second album as Derek Discanio told Rocksound on working with Alex Gaskarth on the new record.
“It was our first time collaborating with someone else. This time we were like, ‘Let’s get out of the comfort zone, think outside the box and try working with other people. Alex was a great segue into that because he was already our friend and we obviously think pretty highly of him – he’s an influence of ours. We came out with two cool songs in ‘Slow Burn’ and ‘Hurry Up And Wait’.
“I like the dynamic of the two songs, they show a little bit of everything and they’re a hint into what we’re writing now. We’re doing a lot of writing for the new record already, we’ve still got a way to go with it but we’re really starting to dive into the writing process.”
“I think we’ll bring Alex back for a little bit of it. We want to write some songs ourselves again, combine those with the collaborations with Alex and then pick the best ones for the record.”
