All Time Low Are Riding a Sea of Change

Emotional power-pop stalwarts All Time Low are kicking off an extensive worldwide tour this week. The third stop is at Tempe's Marquee Theatre on Monday, July 3, with SWMRS, Waterparks, and The Wrecks.

The show falls almost exactly a month after the release of The Last Young Renegade, an aptly named album that marked a break from their longtime label, Hopeless Records. They forged a new relationship with Fueled By Ramen, whose roster includes the likes of Paramore, Panic! at the Disco, and Twenty One Pilots.

Based on that roster, this jump is well within their comfort zone and further establishes them as heavy hitters — thanks to relentless touring and album cycles. The change in direction inspired them to rethink the recording process as well.

The band retreated to Big Bear and Palm Springs, California, to reflect on their decade-long career, as well as everything that's changed in their lives and the lives of their friends. They took their time, sometimes only composing bits in a day and taking breaks between.

The result is a highly personal set of songs, delivered with intention. They hope that this fresh direction lends itself into their performances, too.

"I think a big part of this album was adding [to] and improving our live show," guitarist Jack Barakat says. "This summer tour will be like All Time Low like you've never seen."

For a band that's been around for almost a decade, that's a pretty big statement, but based on the risks they've already taken, it seems likely. Their community of fans that have grown up with the band will also likely be on board no matter what.

"We have played a bunch of it overseas but I am stoked to hear the U.S. fans reactions," Barakat says. "We've always had a personal connection with fans at shows, but it has been special hearing them sing this [album]."
