The descriptions below are taken from this week’s release notes:
All Time Low has come a long way since forming in high school nearly two decades ago. The band has released a whopping seven studio albums, with their eighth Wake Up, Sunshine, coming soon. Wake Up, Sunshine features the introspective anthem “Some Kind of Disaster”. As you play through this track, the rhythm section will an upbeat pace characteristic of what we all love about pop-punk and guitarists will enjoy playing triumphantly. The lyrics let us in the meaning behind the song we’re hearing with rose-colored glasses, as vocalists will sing along with singer-songwriter Alex Gaskarth as he reveals some of the not-so-great, but highly relatable attributes people face.
“Better Off This Way”, from Rock Band stalwarts A Day to Remember, also joins the DLC catalog this week. This powerful, punchy RBN track hails from A Day to Remember’s fourth studio album, What Separates Me From You. Prove your skills on vocals and sing along to emotion-fueled lyrics about standing up for yourself. If you dig “Better Off This Way”, consider snagging “Sticks & Bricks” from the Music Store as well.
