All Time Low’s All Time High
All Time Low’s highly enthusiastic fan base came out in full force for their second night at London’s O2 Brixton Academy on Saturday March 15 2014. The band had successfully sold out the venue on both of the nights that they took to the stage, proving how dedicated and loyal their British fans really are.
Kicking off with the song ‘Do You Want Me (Dead?)’ from their album Dirty Work, the boys from Baltimore pleased the crowd by playing both old and new songs alike, such as ‘Weightless’, ‘Backseat Serenade’, ‘Damned If I Do Ya (Damned If I Don’t)’ and the namesake for their tour, ‘A Love Like War’. Sadly Vic Fuentes from Pierce the Veil wasn’t in attendance to lend his vocals to the track that he had a part in, so instead Jenna McDougall from the supporting act, Tonight Alive, stepped up to the plate to sing alongside All Time Low’s front man, Alex Gaskarth.
One of the best parts of the show was the acoustic set, where Alex took to the stage to give a solo rendition of two of the band’s much loved tracks ‘Remembering Sunday’ and ‘Therapy’, after which Alex’s band mates Jack Barakat, Zack Merrick and Rian Dawson returned to the stage in order to play more of their upbeat tracks and the crowd dancing, including a cover of the infamous song by Wheatus: ‘Teenage Dirtbag.’
During the part of the show that was deemed as the “dance party” by the band, five members of the audience were invited on stage to bust some moves and sing along to ‘Time-Bomb.’ The boys kept their crowd happy all night long; the majority of them were on their feet dancing, singing and thumping the air jovially along with the beats of the tracks that were being played.
The All Time Low boys did an absolutely amazing job and I would recommend them to anyone who is a fan of pop-punk. Give them a listen… You won’t be sorry!
