The All American Rejects Are Back With An Upcoming Album & Brand New Songs

Posted at June 30th, 2017 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in Entertainment, Metal/Rock/Alternative, News

Whether it’s Rock, Alt-Rock or Pop-Rock in this case bands take sabbaticals. That’s  one thing that makes them homogeneous and it sucks but what makes it suck less is the time period in between where they make a comeback by releasing new stuff and doing shows before they go dark again.

 

 

The latest band to do this is All American Rejects and they haven’t been seen in the “new release” side of the world for 3 years now. Their last album came out back in 2012 and at the time of Kids In The Street Mick Wheeler, Mike Kennerty, Chris Gaylor & frontman Tyson Ritter haven’t been working on music at all.

But they’ve chosen 2017 to finally come up with new stuff. They a brand new single Sweat coming out and you can check out the trailer below. They also have an album coming this fall.

 

 

Tyson Ritter opened up about some stuff that happened in the last 3 years and he really dug in there with this interview with Billboard. Check out what he said;

 

Kids in the Street was the last record, in 2012. A year later you released “Air,” a track under your own name to, in your words, “tide fans over until the next Rejects record.” Were you flirting with the idea of releasing a solo record?

I was just playing around. I had fallen back in L.A. We were a band who lived on the road. There’s an interesting thing when you live on that above-ground submarine for so long. Once you get back to your life you [ask], “What am I doing? What is this? I’ve got a house and I’m supposed to wake up in this everyday now.” Getting back into music, I was touching some water, putting my toe in it, seeing what it felt like to be in the studio by myself. I did [“Air”] with [producer] Greg Wells who we did Kids in the Street with. It felt really safe.

 

 

I don’t know what I was doing. I think I wanted to create and do something with the song that came to me while I was on this European run for 12 weeks with Blink-182 in 2013. I was [acting] on Parenthood at the time and they ended up using it. Looking back, I’m not even sure I understood the experience, like, “Wow, this is my studio, this is my time. This is my little playground.” To tide the fans over, I’m not sure it did any of that, but it was an offering.

 

 

Was there ever a moment where it looked like your Kids in the Street would be your last record?

We were presented this ASCAP Vanguard award, and I’m not a very eloquent person, but I said one of the things I’m proudest of saying. I said, “We as songwriters are only as happy as the last thing we wrote made us feel.” I think, leaving that fourth record, “Is this it? Are we going to do anything else?” wasn’t a question that I had in my heart. I knew that I was only going to put something out and that we were only going to put something out if it made us feel great. That’s the high we chase as creators. That’s the rush, finding that song that you love.

Kids in the Street was this perfect example of the Rejects experimenting. You can hear the growing pains because it was really lost in a fun way and I’m really proud of that record. We were throwing paint at the wall on every song and every song has its own little environment. It’s a record, to me, that sounds like a band trying to find it’s next record, and that’s cool.

 

 

After the two tracks, you’re releasing a new album hopefully sometime in the fall. What can fans expect from it?

We’ve got six tracks on wax. This pairing, “Close Your Eyes” and “Sweat,” is a tasting. This is the sauvignon blanc and this is the cabernet. It’s not going to be the same Rejects record because it never is, if you’ve listened to one of our records. This time, to me, the visual offering is so important. The last five years of learning my craft as an actor and really developing that side of being a visual artist in that way has made me realize how important that really is — to put the eyes to the ears. This is going to be more of a visual experience. This record is going to be about your eyes and the headphones.
