Alex opens up about 'Last Young Renegade'.

All Time Low were winners of Album Of The Year with 'Last Young Renegade' at the first ever Rock Sound Awards powered by EMP

In the magazine we spoke to Alex Gaskarth all about the album. Here's a taste...

ARE YOU STILL PROUD OF 'LAST YOUNG RENEGADE AND THE RISK YOU TOOK PAYING OFF?
Says Alex Gaskarth:"Absolutely, and the biggest thing is when we play the songs live, it’s been so amazing to see the crossover of old and new fans responding to the new music. We are playing a lot of new songs in the set. We are playing like five or six new songs from a 10 song record and just the fact that people are screaming along to those songs is really rewarding because that doesn’t always happen. People sometimes get to record seven and people go ‘Eh, just play record four’. I feel like we are in a place where the new songs are doing more for us live than some of the old stuff and that’s a great place to be when you’re in a band that has no intention of slowing down or stopping. We want to keep going and moving forward."


GOING INTO THE FUTURE AND 2018, DOES 'LAST YOUNG RENEGADE' ALSO HINT AT WHERE ALL TIME LOW COULD GO? DOES THIS LEAVE SEVERAL DOORS WIDE OPEN AS TO WHERE YOU COULD GO SOUND WISE?
"I think ultimately it leaves a lot of doors open. I don’t know if we’re in a place where we are going to make another record that sounds like ‘Last Young Renegade’. I have no idea; it’s too early to say. What I do know is that our fan base has accepted something that’s a bit different for us. People didn’t balk at it and people bought in. To me that says All Time Low can continue to try new things and go down different roads and that people are going to stick around and enjoy the ride with us. That makes the process much more exciting and fun for us because you aren’t afraid of longevity at that point. You know that ten years down the line we could be doing something completely different and we won’t be bored. We can keep things interesting and exciting and I’m very grateful that our fan base lets us do that. There are some artists that don’t really have the ability to do that and I think that we’re very lucky in the sense that our fans give us a very wide lane to work in."
