Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low

It’s been a long time coming but on June 7th All Time Low will release their major label debut album Dirty Work on Interscope Records.  Calling this album a crossroads of sorts the album title harkens back to the fine line musicians have to balance between their careers and their personal lives and the songs that were sprung from those experiences.  Offering up a multi-dimensional All Time Low, Dirty Work has allowed the band to grow as songwriters and their hopes are that their dedicated fanbase will come along for the ride.  Forever grateful for all their time spent with Hopeless Records, it was an appropriate time for them to leave the nest and spread their wings with Dirty Work.  

The first single “I Feel Like Dancin” was written with Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo and shows the band stepping out of their comfort zone a little while still keeping the tongue n’ cheekiness that we’ve come to love and expect from them.   Working with several different producers on the album from Butch Walker to Matt Squire to Mike Green to only lends to the overall dynamic of the album.

We recently caught up with ATL’s front man Alex Gaskarth (who started All Time Low along with guitarist Jack Barakat, bassist Zack Merrick and drummer Rian Dawson back in high school) to talk about the new album, their journey making it, and what fans should expect.
