All Time Low and Pale Waves have teamed up for an electrifying new single, PMA.

The Baltimore pop-punks and Manchester indie rockers worked with producer Zakk Cervini (blink-182, Machine Gun Kelly) on the collab, which ATL frontman Alex Gaskarth describes as "a journey into isolation and overstimulation".

"It’s about the little mundane things we do to keep ourselves distracted when loneliness becomes a constant and leaves us feeling apathetic," he explains. "It’s existential dread wrapped in nervous laughter kissed by the SoCal sun. Heather [Baron-Gracie, vocalist] and Pale Waves joining us on this one quite literally brings the hopeful shine to the lyrics, the promise of safety in the shared experience, the understanding we’re all living it together."

Heather adds: "I was really happy that Alex asked me to be on the track as I’ve always been a big fan of All Time Low and I loved the song when he sent it over. I really related to the themes, especially the exhausting worry that you’re never doing / being enough in life.”
