Signed to Hopeless while still in high school, ALL TIME LOW released its Put Up or Shut Up EP in 2006, which quickly lodged itself on the Billboard Charts. Its breakthrough full-length So Wrong Itâ€™s Right came out in 2007 launching the hits â€œDear Maria (Count Me In)â€ and â€œPoppinâ€™â€, helping to further cement the bandâ€™s standing as pop-punk favorites. With a new album tentatively set for release this summer and continued support from fans and media outlets such as MTV/mtvU, Alternative Press, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Absolutepunk.net to name a few, 2009 looks to be another stellar year for ALL TIME LOW.
