Alex Gaskarth has confirmed that All Time Low are back working on a brand new album, after the band took a “little break” following their 2017 record, Last Young Renegade.
In an interview with The Music Podcast, Gaskarth delved into the reason All Time Low decided it was time to take a break.
“We had a long record cycle with Last Young Renegade and we kind of felt like we circled the world twice on that music and it just felt like, maybe, the right time to take a little break from being on the road with All Time Low,” Gaskarth shared.
“We just felt like maybe we’d pummelled people over the head with it too much! It was the right moment to take a step back and re-evaluate what the next iteration of All Time Low would be and so we’ve started digging into demos and new music is taking shape.
Gaskarth then went on to confirm that the band are back in the studio writing an album they hope to release in 2020.
“I just spent a few weeks in Nashville at [Rian Dawson’s] studio, starting to form ideas,” He said. “It’s nice, we have an amazing head start on the whole thing and there’s already pictures forming which is a nice way to approach it.”
Earlier this year, Alex Gaskarth and Mark Hoppus announced that they had formed a supergroup, Simple Creatures. The pop-punk masterminds are currently gearing up to release their debut EP, Strange Love.
Strange Love is set to be released on March 29th through BMG. You can listen to the titular single below. “Strange Love is the first glimpse into the Simple Creatures universe. Cooked up in studios and basements around Los Angeles, we set out to push ourselves in musical directions that are new and exciting to us,” Mark Hoppus shared in a statement about the track.
