In the last year All Time Low have headlined Brixon Academy with the Kerrang Relentless Energy tour, secured a spot of Radio 1’s a list and continues on the up wreaking havoc at venues all over the world and, most recently on our shores, playing Reading Festivals legendary mainstage alongside pop punk giants Blink 182, Weezer and Motion City Soundtrack. February and May 2010 will, once again, see the four piece hitting mainland Europe, the UK & Ireland on a month long tour with very special guests, the newly reformed Yellowcard, in tow for the UK leg. This will, undoubtedly, be the perfect antidote to all those freezing cold February nights.
