It’s all change for All Time Low, with the once-pop punk outfit having made the switch from Hopeless Records to Fueled by Ramen.
The Alex Gaskarth-fronted quartet, whose previous label contract expired last year, joined the label some eleven years after having first auditioned for them.
The result of their first track under the label is the synth-infused Dirty Laundry, which showcases a darker and more brooding side to the Baltimore outfit.
In an interview with AltPress, frontman Gaskarth said the following about their label switch: “It’s pretty crazy, actually, because the first label we ever showcased for was Fueled By Ramen when they were down in Florida, so signing with them now was 10 or 11 years in the making. What we’re really grateful [for] is they’re such a good family. We’ve always loved Fueled By Ramen, we’ve always been fans of the bands on the label. After our last record, we were unsigned and we needed a new label. It was the perfect opportunity to partner up with a team that we had been fans of for a really long time. They really let us be who we want to be. There was no one there trying to shape us or guide us or direct us where to go from here. It’s kind of like, “Look, you guys already know what you’re doing. Let us help you, let us facilitate that.” To me, that’s a sign of a great partnership.”
