All Time Low Have Dropped Another New Song, Melancholy Kaleidoscope
All Time Low have just released another absolute banger from their new album Wake Up, Sunshine.
The new track, Melancholy Kaleidoscope, follows previously-unveiled singles Some Kind Of Disaster, Sleeping In and Getaway Green, and comes ahead of the release of the band’s eighth album Wake Up, Sunshine on April 3.
Discussing Melancholy Kaleidoscope in an exclusive track-by-track interview with Kerrang!, frontman Alex Gaskarth explains, “This is an interesting one, because the energy is pretty high, but the lyrics are exploring some darker things. It was written at a time where I was going through seasonal depression, which I’ve never really experienced before. I came in to the studio and didn’t want to write anything happy (laughs).

“Zakk [Cervini], our producer, was playing with this idea of a fast song, and it struck me that, ‘This isn’t where I am mentally right now.’ But it ended up being a really interesting dichotomy working on a song that was really energetic and full-speed-ahead, but contrasting what I was feeling at the time. The mood just manifested into a song about getting better and pulling yourself through it by way of music. It’s about finding yourself in a crowded room at a concert and feeling better, and also really putting the effort into feeling better. By the time we were listening back to it, I was like, ‘Wow, I feel lighter having spoken to these feelings.’”
