Pop punkers also tell NME they 'don't want to be just a pop punk band anymore'
All Time Low have announced an extensive UK tour for early next year.
The Maryland pop punkers, who released their fourth album ‘Dirty Work’ last month, will play 12 UK dates across January and early February.
The shows begin at Newcastle‘s O2 Academy on January 15 and run until February 3, when the band play their largest UK headline show to date at London‘s HMV Hammersmith Apollo.
The band played a well-received, if damp show at Sonisphere and told NME before their set that they believe have moved beyond their Blink-182 and Jimmy Eat World inspired roots with ‘Dirty Work’.
Speaking in a video which you can see at the top of your screen, frontman Alex Gaskarth said of the band’s new album: “‘Dirty Work’ is a very realised album, it really represents where this band is right now.”
He continued: “When we started out, we were very directly influenced by Blink-182 and Jimmy Eat World, but we don’t want to just be a pop punk band, with this one there’s everything in there from Queen to Katy Perry.”
