All Time Low Announce New Album, Wake Up, Sunshine
The Baltimore pop-punk kings will be releasing the record – the follow-up to 2017’s Last Young Renegade – on April 3 via Fueled By Ramen, with frontman Alex Gaskarth explaining of how it came about: “We got back to how we started. 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.”
“I think we accomplished something special,” adds guitarist Jack Barakat of the 15-song album, which was co-written and produced by Zakk Cervini and features guest collaborations with blackbear and The Band CAMINO. “By putting our four heads together, we were able to make a classic All Time Low album.”
To celebrate the news of album number eight, All Time Low have also announced the release of new single Sleeping In, which is debuting this Thursday on BBC Radio 1, as well as two intimate UK dates taking place this week; pre-order Wake Up, Sunshine at this link before 4pm GMT on Wednesday to receive a code for early access to tickets.

Alex previously revealed of the track: “The Young Renegades are no more… Reintroducing your favourite disaster, All Time Low. We took a step away for a minute – did some growing, did some soul searching, some healing… Now we’re back and ready to be all yours again, our battle scars worn proudly, and our hair looking better than ever. (It’s best if you just agree.) We’ve missed you all so much and we’re so excited for what comes next. Feels like we’ve been keeping secrets from you for way too long… Been hard to keep our mouths shut, honestly. It’s a song and dance we’ve done a thousand times before, but this one feels extra-good. Besides, it’s never the same dance twice. Hope you dig this new song as much as we do… After all, it’s all for you.”
