Myspace Music Announces All Time Low To Perform Three Secret Shows In One Day
MySpace Music is excited to announce an unprecedented set of upcoming Secret Shows featuring the pop-punk quartet All Time Low. The band will be performing shows in Washington DC, Chicago, IL, and Orange County, CA, all on Tuesday, July 7. The ambitious, cross-country excursion will begin at Midnight and is set to culminate in an evening show scheduled at Anaheim's Chain Reaction. The Secret Show performances will be held exclusively for MySpace users who were recently notified via MySpace Music's Secret Show profile (http://www.myspace.com/secretshows).
Three Secret Shows in one day is a venture MySpace Music has never attempted in its over three-year history, and it's only fitting they have chosen All Time Low as the first band to carry out such a feat due to group's overwhelming popularity within the online music community site. "Pulling off three shows in 24 hours with an indie band like All Time Low is a testament to the strength of the music community on MySpace Music," explains Isac Walter, MSM Music Editor and Creator of the Secret Show Franchise. "All you need is a rabid fan base in each city and the platform to support it."
The band's performance and trek across the nation will be filmed for a special episode of the MySpace Music Feed, a news show that will air the episode on Monday, July 20th. "This is going to be a crazy adventure! We have wanted to do a MySpace Secret Show for a long time, and to be able to do the first ever one to span three times zones in just 24 hours is incredible," says Alex Gaskarth from All Time Low. "We have never played three shows in one day and the fact that they span the distance of the continent makes it all that much more fun. If you see us running through the airport to catch our next plane, please wave hello." Along the way, All Time Low, Hopeless Records and Ford Fiesta are teaming up to give fans an exclusive window into their three-show adventure with the band. Fans who are looking to join the adventure can visit http://www.fiestamovement.com on July 7 to be apart of the fun with the band. The collaboration between Hopeless Records and Ford Fiesta was engineered by Viva la Rock; a Los Angeles based creative resource agency regarded for their work in activating highly successful partnerships between globally relevant brands and leaders of the music and entertainment community. "This is a great partnership because, like All Time Low, the Ford Fiesta and the Fiesta Movement are gaining tremendous popularity that stems from a strong online presence," said Connie Fontaine, Ford's Brand Content and Alliance Manager. "We're excited to be involved in such a unique experience and to reach consumers that may not yet have heard about the Fiesta." The press reaction to All Time Low thus far in their career has been fantastic. Their debut full-length, "So Wrong, It's Right" landed them a spot in Alternative Press' list of "100 Bands You Need To Know" in 2008, and they were named "Band of the Year" by the magazine in 2009 while making their second appearance on the cover. Absolute Punk, who proclaimed that All Time Low was "your new favorite pop-punk band," also praised the album, which has scanned over 180,000 copies since its release.
In addition to their forthcoming album, "Nothing Personal," and scheduled MySpace Secret Shows, All Time Low is confirmed to perform on the Main Stage of this summer's Vans Warped Tour on a string of dates. Having just recently finished a tour with Fall Out Boy, All Time Low will be jumping on Warped Tour in Oceanport, NJ, and staying on it until the end in Los Angeles, CA. Prior to these dates, they will do a short headlining tour with We The Kings and Cartel, hitting several cities on the east coast. Also, All Time Low's video for the song "Weightless" is debuting today exclusively on MTV. The video features cameos from Mark Hoppus (Blink 182) and Pete Wentz (fall out boy).
