The group went back to the basics (and the basement) for WAKE UP, SUNSHINE. Throughout 2019, the four musicians—Alex Gaskarth [vocals, guitar], Jack Barakat [guitar, vocals], Zack Merrick [bass, vocals], and Rian Dawson [drums]—congregated together in Nashville at Rian’s studio and at a Palm Springs rental house. Face-to-face, they wrote and recorded the 15-song affair joined by co-writer, producer, and collaborator Zakk Cervini.
We got back to how we started, commented Alex. It had been a long time since the four of us made a record under one roof. That became a central theme. We’ve been a band for 17 years. Everybody brought something to the table. A lot of what you’re hearing came from those magic moments together.
Jack concurred, I think we accomplished something special. By putting our four heads together, we were able to make a classic All Time Low album.
WAKE UP, SUNSHINE distills two decades of experience into a definitive and dynamic body of work for the band. Welcoming new collaborators into their world, the forthcoming album sees All Time Low teaming up with blackbear on Monsters and The Band CAMINO on Favorite Place
Throughout a back catalogue streamed nearly half-a-billion times, All Time Low have continually raised the bar. Since the release of their third album, ‘Dirty Work’ in 2011, the group have had four straight Top 20 entries on the UK Official Album Charts, with 2015’s ‘Future Hearts’ debuting as a #1 album. 2009’s ‘Nothing Personal’, 2012’s ‘Don’t Panic’ and 2015’s ‘Future Hearts’ are all UK Certified albums - gold, silver and silver respectively, in addition to their two gold albums, two gold singles and platinum single accolades at home in the US.
After nearly two decades together, All Time Low have rekindled the spark they first ignited in a Baltimore basement on their 2020 full-length studio album, WAKE UP, SUNSHINE. These four lifelong friends walked into a tiny room, plugged in, and turned up with the same spirit, but with more experience, and proficiency gained from performing to millions worldwide. As a result, they‘ve delivered WAKE UP, SUNSHINE, a captivating body of work at the apex of their prowess.
