Alex Gaskarth Confirms End Of 'Last Young Renegade' Album Cycle, Opens Up About Future Of All Time Low
Is this the end of the "Last Young Renegade" era? If so, what's next for All Time Low? Well, frontman Alex Gaskarth has answered both of these questions for you!
In a new interview with Billboard, Gaskarth has confirmed that with the band's music video for "Afterglow" as well as their last tour, the band is officially done with the "Last Young Renegade" era.
Or in his words:
"After the last tour and with the video for ‘Afterglow,’ we kind of closed the book on that record. Those 10 songs and the story on that record feel self-contained, its own thing. So we didn’t want to mess with it, we didn’t want to tarnish it – we wanted to let it exist in its own space for All Time Low."
However, the end of something also means a new beginning, so what exactly does the future hold for All Time Low? For starters, according to the singer, the band is able to experiment a lot more at this point.
"I think every time All Time Low puts out a fast song, people call back to the old material – because when we were 18, 19, 20, that’s all we knew how to write. [...] Through the years I feel like we’ve worn a lot of different hats, and done a lot of different things."
The band has already initiated this new era with the release of two new singles, "Everything Is Fine" and "Birthday". So, what's going to happen next?
"So many artists are releasing singles when they feel like it and seeing what happens, so we may just keep doing that for a while, some mixtape vibes. Now that we’re kind of getting in on the fun, it creates some really cool moments for us. It feels pretty good."
Well, we love the sound of that! Are you excited for new All Time Low music? What do you think it's going to sound like? Feel free to let us know!
