All Time Low + Mayday Parade Tour Together * Two Hottest Bands On 'The Scene'? Indeed!

All Time Low (Hopeless Records) and Mayday Parade (Fearless Records), the two hottest bands on the 'scene' right now, are teaming up for a month long tour starting next week to get 2008 started out right. Both bands are currently on the dual cover of the new issue of Substream Music Press that's available on newsstands now!

BOTH Bands are available for press - talk to me if you need interviews, press materials, pics etc.


All Time Low's debut album So Wrong, It's Right which debuted at #62 on the Billboard Top 200 after its release on September 25th and has now sold upwards of 53,000 including almost 4,000 this past week. ATL might just be the #1 pop punk buzz band on the scene right now...Fresh out of high school, they've sold almost 70,000 copies of their debut EP Put Up Or Shut Up, 42% digitally (which is a HUGE #) with almost no promotion or marketing behind it. It's been completely organic as they've been developing a rabid fanbase online and on the road. They were on Warped Tour all summer and the crowds got bigger and bigger at every show. They finished 2007 in style with big tours with the Plain White T's, The Starting Line and Boys Like Girls. Look for ATL headlining the Alternative Press Tour this Spring!


Mayday Parade's debut album A Lesson In Romantics came out late this summer and has now scanned over 38,000 and counting! They hit #10 on the Billboard Heatseeker Chart this past week, selling over 3,000 records. Mayday sold also over 18,000 individual track downloads in the same week. Mayday Parade are a great story...two years ago they followed Warped Tour around in their van, played in the parking lot and sold CD's to kids in line (accumulating to 20,000 copies sold of their self-released EP). This year they were actually on Warped Tour and were one of the biggest stories on the tour, with more and more kids freaking out to their live show every day. For those who find themselves guilty of secretly (or openly) liking the All-American Rejects, Fall Out Boy, Something Corporate or Taking Back Sunday - Mayday Parade is a band you need to check out ASAP. It's pop goodness at its most polished and most addictive.
