Album Review: “Last Young Renegade” By All Time Low

All Time Low released their latest album Last Young Renegade on June 2 via. Fueled By Ramen. This is All Time Low’s first album under Fueled By Ramen’s record label.

All Time Low was under Hopeless Records and changed record labels last year. The public new about the label change on Feb. 17 via. Facebook with a statement by Alex Gaskarth.

Within the time span of the statement on Facebook and the release of Last Young Renegade, All Time Low made public five singles: “Dirty Laundry,” “Last Young Renegade,” “Nice2KnoU,” “Life Of The Party,” and “Good Times.” Besides “Good Times,” every other single had a music video release with the song. Interesting enough, Jack Barakat tweeted explaining how “Good Times” was the first track written.

Here is the track list to the album:

  1. Last Young Renegade
  2. Drugs & Candy
  3. Dirty Laundry
  4. Good Times
  5. Nice2KnoU
  6. Life of the Party
  7. Nightmares
  8. Dark Side of Your Room
  9. Ground Control (feat. Tegan and Sara)
  10. Afterglow

The album was different from their previous albums because of the sound. The sound and lyrics of the album were more mature and slower vibe which shows a different side to the band’s usual upbeat and energized songs like “Dear Maria, Count Me In” or “Six Feet Under The Stars.” Considering the album came out with five released singles, it was easy to predict that this album is different.

The band has shown tremendous growth in this album. The band changed record labels, and I feel made this album extra special. The album isn’t as pop or youthful but its relatable. I like the fact All Time Low has shown different aspects of their life as a group. The song “Nice2KnoU” shows that the band is going beyond their youth for inspiration for lyrics but has “Good Times” which shows off their nostalgic side. They dabble with bringing back lyrics involving love or romance with “Dirty Laundry” They expand more about cutting off bad relationships with their song “Drugs & Candy.”

As someone who grew up with All Time Low, it’s nice to see them mature as I do. I can’t wait to finally meet All Time Low next week. I’ll be sure to talk about my experience in next week’s post. What do you think of the album? Which song is your favorite? Let me know by tweeting it to me @ovictoriamedia.

In other news, Neck Deep announced “The Peace and The Panic EU Tour” that goes around Europe and the UK throughout the months of October and November (ticket information can be found on their website,) The Maine announced a tour throughout the month of September with Night Riots and The Technicolors in Europe and the UK (tickets and tour information can be found here,) Blink 182 and PVRIS announced a show together in New York, Punk Goes Pop Vol. 7 is going to be released, according to Rock Sound, with bands like Too Close To Touch, Boston Manor, Capsize, and more.

Album Review: Haven’t Been Myself by Too Close To Touch

Too Close To Touch released their latest album on September 23, Haven’t Been Myself. Too Close To Touch is a rock band from Lexington, Kentucky composed of Keaton Pierce, Mason Marble, Thomas Kidd, Travis Moore, and Kenneth Downey. Their journey to the ears of listeners began in 2012. Too Close To Touch was their first EP released by Epitaph Records in 2014 and Nerve Endings was their first full length album released in March of 2015 by Epitaph Records. Too Close To Touch got exposure playing at Vans Warped Tour in 2016 and won “Best Underground Band” in this year Alternative Press Music Awards. Haven’t Been Myself is Too Close To Touch’s second full length album released via. Epitaph Records.

The singles released prior to the album were “What I Wish I Could Forget,” “Crooked Smile,” and “Sympathy.” This album release was acompanied by the music video for “Sympathy.” The track list is as followed:

  1. Sympathy
  2. Crooked Smile
  3. What I Wish I Could Forget
  4. Translate
  5. Miss Your Face
  6. The Art of Eye Contact
  7. Modern Love Affair
  8. Inside Voices
  9. What A Shame
  10. For Your Sake
  11. Eiley

Pierce lost his three year old sister, and the album is nothing short than emotional pulling at your heart strings. Pierce has an amazing rasp in his voice displaying a sense of urgency, anger and sadness. The songs “Miss Your Face” and “Sympathy” are emotional by the way Pierce creates a raw vocal. Too Close To Touch has such heart-wrenching lyrics that pull at your heart strings in the right way. The album is great, and doesn’t stray away from their previous sound of their prior records. Their prior records were great, but Haven’t Been Myself truly reflect the band’s drive, emotion, and overall composition.

You can pick up a copy of Haven’t Been Myself from your local record store, purchase the album on their website, download it from iTunes or Amazon, and stream from Apple Music and Spotify. You can catch Too Close To Touch opening for Crown The Empire this fall. Ticket information can be found here.

In other news, As It Is made public that they are releasing a new album okay. on January 20, 2017 which can be pre-ordered on iTunes, Mayday Parade announced an anniversary edition of Tales Told By Dead Friends that can be pre-ordered on iTunes, the release of My Chemical Romance’s The Black Parade/ Living With Ghosts (The 10th Anniversary Edition) released today, and The Maine will be playing tonight at Webster Hall in New York City one last time in 2016.

At The Disco released the music video for “LA Devotee” and information on a United States tour in 2017 with MisterWives and Saint Motel. Ticket pre-sale is on September 26 at 10AM.

Rock on, stay humble and be positive!

Here’s a picture of the guys of Too Close To Touch and myself at Warped Tour!

Vans Warped Tour 2016 @ Long Island, NY

Warped Tour 2016 for New York took place at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater. Saturday was the 14th show out of the 42 shows live across the United States.
I happened to get onto AltPress’ snapchat with Nick Major

img_0566
I met John O’ Callaghan from the Maine
img_0508I met Broadside

img_0510
As well as Too Close to Touch

img_0521
And Sykes


I would have to say that this year’s Warped Tour was the best I have went to. The weather was overcast and 74 degrees with a slight breeze which was comfortable to be in the whole day. The lineup was fantastic and the energy each crowd had at each set was so unique and different. I saw We The Kings, Tonight Alive, Knuckle Puck, Mayday Parade, State Champs, Sykes, Broadside, and Real Friends perform. I was not able to see Yellowcard, Too Close To Touch, Sleeping With Sirens, With Confidence, and The Maine and due to conflicting times. Below are some bands setlists.

Knuckle Puck:

  1. Disdain
  2. Fences
  3. But Why Would You Care?
  4. Evergreen
  5. Bedford Falls
  6. No Good
  7. Untitled
  8. Pretense

Mayday Parade:

  1. Jersey
  2. Keep In Mind, Transmogrification Is A New Technology
  3. Oh Well, Oh Well
  4. Black Cat
  5. Lets Be Honest
  6. When You See My Friends
  7. Jamie All Over

Broadside:

  1. Storyteller
  2. Come & Go
  3. The Simple Type
  4. Human Machines
  5. Playing In Traffic
  6. Coffee Talk

Real Friends:

  1. Late Nights In My Car
  2. I Don’t Love You Anymore
  3. Stay In One Place
  4. Floorborads
  5. Colder Quicker
  6. Summer
  7. Mess
  8. Loose Ends

I knew almost every band I saw at Warped Tour, but I never heard of Sykes prior to that day. After walking around the venue for awhile, my friend and I thought it would be fun to check out a band we both haven’t heard of before. Playing on the Cyclops Stage, Sykes took the stage. More people traveled over to the stage as their set continued on. The energy of Sykes made their set super enjoyable.

There were many tents set up across Warped Tour besides band tents. There was a company called Then, Now, Always that sold Vans Warped Tour bracelets like this
img_0551
And there were tents to support the arts, cards for homeless kids, Hope For The Day, and many more. There were tents for clothing company, record labels, universities and many more. If you’re attending Warped Tour, I recommend checking out other tents.

The 2016 Vans Warped Tour is happening all summer long. Today, Warped Tour took place in Scranton, Pennsylvania. PVRIS was at yesterday’s Warped Tour in Hartford, CT and they performed with Jenna McDougall of Tonight Alive. Be sure to check out the bands that will be at your local Vans Warped Tour.

Here are the photos from the meet and greet I had with Panic! At The Disco last week!
