From “Dear Maria, Count Me In”, “Weightless”, to their recent songs like “Something’s Gotta Give”, The band All Time Low have been a prominent part of the pop punk music scene for several years now.
For those of you who don’t know All Time Low:
All Time Low are a pop punk band based out of Baltimore, Maryland and formed in 2003. Their band name is a reference to New Found Glory song, “Head on Collision”. All Time Low’s first EP, The Three Words to Remember in Dealing with the End EP, came out in 2004. Since then, they have released six studio albums, with number seven along the way in June of this year. All Time Low are known mostly for their album So Wrong, It’s Right, which features their hit song “Dear Maria, Count Me In”.
Since their time as a band, All Time Low has been signed to several different labels; Emerald Moon, Hopeless Records, Interscope and recently, Fueled By Ramen, which other bands like Twenty One Pilots, Paramore, Panic! At The Disco and many other well-known artists. All Time Low did their first album with the label Emerald Moon, then went onto sign with Hopeless Records until 2011, when they signed to Interscope Records, then back to Hopeless Records with the next two albums and now as of this year, to Fueled By Ramen, a label they have never been previously affiliated with before. As a fan and someone who is a part of the music industry, I have questions in regards to their label change.
Why did they switch from Hopeless to Fueled By Ramen?
Was there something Fueled By Ramen was offering them as artists that they didn’t feel Hopeless was providing anymore?
These are rhetorical questions, but I’m curious to see where their new journey takes them as a band.
