On Thursday (December 17), MTV News took a break from breaking stories and talking to stars to celebrate the holidays with a little food, a little drink and buckets of good cheer. We were also treated to a killer set from good-time rock band All Time Low, who were celebrating the end of what has turned out to be a killer year for the Baltimore quartet. Their latest album Nothing Personal had a huge debut (it broke into the Billboard album chart in fourth place), spent time on the Warped Tour and headlined their biggest trek yet (the Glamour Kills Tour, on which they were supported by friends We the Kings, Hey Monday and the Friday Night Boys).
MTV News caught up with the band just before their set, and for them, the year’s biggest highlights involved undergarments. “We kept all the bras thrown at us,” guitarist Jack Barakat explained. “We ended up with over 600 bras.” Their goals for the new year include more touring and more writing, but for the immediate future, they just wanted to give a good show at the MTV party.
“We want to rock the sh– out of it,” frontman Alex Gaskarth explained. Drummer Rian Dawson added, “We’re really hoping everybody is drunk, because the more you drink the better band we become.”
“And the better looking I get,” concluded Gaskarth.
Following an introduction by Sway, the band delivered a killer set and kept the volume and the energy high during the party. After the set (which included office favorite “Damned If I Do Ya (Damned If I Don’t)”), the group hung out with the staff and toasted to the holidays.
And in case they were curious: Yes, All Time Low, you rocked the sh– out of it (even if nobody threw any bras).
