What’s just as cool as being a rock star? Being in a music video with four of your favorite rock stars! All Time Low launched their music video for ‘Afterglow’ after returning from the second leg of their Young Renegades US tour. The tour comes after the release of their 2017 album “Last Young Renegade.”
What makes this event particularly special to the fans, is that the video was shot last month at the Alexandra Palace in London during their Young Renegades UK tour. Some lucky fans in attendance for this event not only got an amazing performance, but were featured in the video. Hustlers, the loyal fan base of the band, got a sneak peek at the footage the night before its public release. The video itself shows slow motion crowd shots, backstage antics, and an strong performance of the melodic song. The confetti gently dancing in the air through the lights of the stage paint the true “afterglow” shot after shot.
Back in the year 2003, All Time Low was formed by vocalist and guitarist Alex Gaskarth, guitarist Jack Barakat, bassist Zack Merrick, and drummer Rian Dawson. The Baltimore boys skyrocketed to fame after the release of “So Wrong It’s Right.” The album featured their hit song ‘Dear Maria Count Me In’. Since then, the guys have toured with groups such as A Day to Remember, Blink-182, Pierce the Veil, and Yellowcard. Seven albums, countless tours, and thousands of bras thrown on the stage later, the Fueled By Ramen pop punk group is still selling out shows and working hard for their fans.
An official statement from the band was posted on the Hustlers website:
Thank you for making the Young Renegades touring cycle the most memorable yet! From cities all over the US, to half-way around the world in Australia, Japan, SE Asia, Europe, and the UK, you guys have reminded us again and again why we make music, why we tour, and why we started this band.
Last Young Renegade was an ambitious album for us, with concepts, imagery, and musicality that we’d never really explored in depth before. We wrote this record for the stage, and you guys helped bring it to life with us every night. To show our appreciation, we wanted to put together a live look at one of our favorite songs from LYR, the closing chapter, Afterglow.
Shot in London at the Alexandria Palace, we wanted to capture the energy and the interactions we share from the stage with you guys in the crowd.
Afterglow is a story of us; The kings and queens of the rock n’ roll shows, falling in love with the lights, the noise, the sweat, the emotion, and then pouring out into the streets when it’s all done, living for the next time we all get to throw down together again. I hope you guys find yourselves in this video, whether you were there at the show that night, or in the faces of those who were, we are all in this together, and it always feels like family to us. Thank you again! See you soon!”
Hopefully that “see you soon” means more tours and tunes from All Time Low!
