Off Hopeless again, they’ve joined Fueled by Ramen, a label with a roster that resembles an Avengers-style lineup of mid-2000s rock mainstays who can still fill arenas and top the charts, like Paramore and Panic! Much like those two bands, ATL have found a way to broaden their sound without jeopardizing what has made them so appealing to young listeners for more than a decade.A bit darker than their past work, the quartet’s seventh LP sounds like one of their most carefully curated statements yet.
“You’re thrown into situations at a young age that people that age usually aren’t exposed to,” Gaskarth explains.In 2007, the four members of All Time Low hadn’t even hit the legal drinking age when a couple of boyishly goofy songs about girls began to push them beyond their local scene.Signed to the taste-making indie label Hopeless Records, the Maryland quartet released their scrappy but hopeful sophomore album So Wrong, It’s Right, and suddenly pop-punk had a new band of skinny-jeans-wearing heroes with frosted, side-swept hair.“We kind of know what we’re doing now,” the singer says with a laugh.
Recalling the sessions for So Wrong, Gaskarth notes how songs often arose out of random moments and spurts of inspiration.“Oh, we want those awards,” Barakat chimes in again. With So Wrong, ATL provided exactly that: Two of the most popular songs from the album are a tune about a stripper (“Dear Maria, Count Me In”) and a moving breakup power ballad (“Remembering Sunday”).
