All Time Low Announce New Album, ‘Tell Me I’m Alive’
All Time Low have announced details of their ninth album, Tell Me I’m Alive. The Baltimore pop-punk act have confirmed that their new album will be released on 17 March via Fueled By Ramen.
The second single from the album (following the previously released Sleepwalking) has also been released.
Frontman Alex Gaskarth had the following to say about the single in an Instagram post, “We wrote TIMA immediately after writing Sleepwalking… It was one of those ‘OK, the pressure’s off’ moments towards the end of the creative process. We felt like we had our first single and came into the session like the last day of school; no stress, no need to deliver anything specific.
“Jack and I had plans to go and see Paul McCartney that night, so naturally I’d been listening to Sgt Pepper’s all week…
“Theatre. Concept. A bit of cheek couple perfectly with weight and consequence. Its sensibilities were bleeding into our creative process for the day and suddenly I was picturing this fumbling, stumbling mess, a caricature of a person hell bent on burning down everything around them for the laughs and the memories (We’ve all been there at one time or another.) Andrew, almost ironically, played some plucky piano chords and the narrative just started spilling out of my mouth.”
The singer added the comment, “Real glad to have this one out in the world. Hope it makes you wanna run through a wall.”
Along with the album news, All Time Low have announced concerts at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre, taking place 18 May and 23 May, respectively. According to a press release, the Nashville show will feature a “one-of-a-kind, stripped down set with surprise guests.”
All Time Low will return to Europe and the UK in the coming months, performing at the OVO Arena Wembley in London on the album release date.
