Calculated Risks with ALL TIME LOW

“I think it’s always about taking risks, calculated risks”, measured All Time Low frontman Alex Gaskarth, “but you can’t ever really get… I never wanna do the same thing and I think to be safe in what you’re doing creatively gets boring for people. Even if sometimes the visceral reaction is the first thing that people come back with or whatever, I think it’s important to challenge people in expression. I don’t anticipate we’re ever gonna get any safer (laughs). I wanna keep trying new things with this band”.

In the full interview Alex discusses the upcoming Good Things Festival, the pressure there is on bands to perform amongst their peers, the early days of the band, including the high school years, the teenage angst taken into their debut recording, the stability of the bands members, previous album Last Young Renegade and the reaction to it, an insight into the next album and more.
