All Time Low’s Jack Barakat Unveils New Side-Project, WhoHurtYou

The first taste of the All Time Low guitarist’s new music will be arriving on June 21.

All Time Low guitarist Jack Barakat is set to unveil music from his brand-new side-project, WhoHurtYou, this week.

The group are seemingly compromised of Jack and LA-based musician Kevin Fisher, and by the looks of things their collective new single Why will drop on June 21. Check out a teaser below…

The guitarist first spoke cryptically of the project back in April, telling KROQ at Coachella that he was working on “a little somethin’ somethin’.”

Jack then reassured All Time Low fans that it wouldn’t mean they wouldn’t be seeing their favourite pop-punks anymore: “But the thing is, no matter what, All Time Low loves touring. Alex [Gaskarth, frontman] wants to do his thing, but I’m gonna make him come back. The thing is I was like, ‘Alex I want to take the year off, you go do Simple Creatures, I want a break,’ and he was like, ‘Let’s get back in the fall,’ and I’m like, ‘Dude, no – I want to sleep!”

Stay tuned for more from WhoHurtYou this week.

In All Time Low news, Alex told Kerrang! recently that the band will be heading into the studio in the summer to work on a follow-up to 2017’s Last Young Renegade – once his Simple Creatures side-project with blink-182’s Mark Hoppus is on the back-burner.

“We are kicking music around, we are sending ideas back and forth, we are starting to get into the nitty gritty of it,” he says.

“I think in the summer when blink gets busy and we put the pin in Simple Creatures for the minute, there’s going to be a nice window of time for all four of us get together, get in a room and start looking at the demos I’ve written, and breaking those down.

“Also, just start writing as the four of us again, and figuring out what the next version of All Time Low is going to sound like, which is super-exciting right now. Coming off the tail-end of Last Young Renegade, which was a little pocket universe of a record for us, I think it will be really cool to break out of that and kinda get back into what makes All Time Low, All Time Low, and figuring out what that is in 2019/2020.”
