All Time Low, Monsters ft Demi Lovato and blackbear
Fueled By Ramen
All Time Low have been a household name way back since their days as the scrappy rascals of pop-punk, all the way till now when they’re regular names topping mammoth arena bills. And they’re topping charts too – Monsters, off their phenomenal latest record Wake Up Sunshine, has been flying comfortably high, and now ATL have called in pop icon Demi Lovato to lend a voice, securing it a top spot for even longer.
Demi Lovato is no stranger to the world of pop-punk, having worked with Fall Out Boy in the past, but on Monsters she really truly gets to shine. Alex Gaskarth’s oh-so-familiar warmth, with blackbear’s dark alt groove, plus Lovato’s soaring, formidable vocalisations, is an intoxicating combination: the latest Monsters is even more of a powerful bop than before.
That’s not all that’s new in the ATL world either. They’re nearing the end of their Basement Noise concert series, which have been an absolute bundle of fun – of these band-member curated setlist streams, only guitarist Jack Barakat’s week remains, but it’s sure to be a worthy note to finish on (much like Alex’s glitched monsters high note last week!).
But we won’t be missing ATL from our lives for too long, as they’ve just announced a VERY limited run of UK shows for Autumn 2021. Hitting Glasgow, Manchester, and their iconic old haunt Brixton, in London, these shows are sure to be euphoric and jam-packed with all the charm you could ask for. A worthy follow-up to their intimate album release shows of February this year, these gigs definitely aren’t to be missed.
Monsters ft Demi Lovato is out now, and tickets for tour go on sale Friday.
