Baltimore pop punks All Time Low have revealed details of their upcoming sixth album.
Titled Future Hearts, it will launch on April 7 via Hopeless Records. And frontman Alex Gaskarth says while they’ve experimented with their sound on the record, it’s not a huge departure from 2012’s Don’t Panic.
He tells Rock Sound TV: “It feels like a definite progression. I wouldn’t say it’s an insane departure or anything like that – we haven’t gone completely the other way and tried all kinds of new things.
“We’ve certainly tried some new things, but I don’t think it’s necessarily going to alienate anyone or push people away that loved the last record. There’s a lot of stuff that’s in line with Don’t Panic but there’s a lot of stuff that’s a logical next step from it, too.”
The band are heading out on a co-headlining tour with You Me At Six across the UK in February and Gaskarth says there will be friendly competition between the bands as neither of them want to be seen as the underdog.
He continues: “It’s a co-headliner, so it’s not just our show. Another big part of it that’s going to keep it fun is the friendly competition we’ll have back and forth with the guys in You Me At Six.
“Both bands are eager to put on their best show because neither wants to be the underdog. Everybody wants to put their best foot forward, so I think it’s going to drive both bands to do their best.”
They’ll also play a headlining gig at London’s SSE Wembley Arena on March 20 which will be filmed for a DVD release. Support will be provided by Neck Deep and Real Friends.
Future Hearts features guest appearances from Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus and Good Charlotte mainman Joel Madden and is currently available to pre-order in a variety of bundles from Hopeless Records’ online store and digital via iTunes.
