Message from Jack

Hey guys,
Jack here writing on a serious note, for the first and hopefully only time ever. I just wanted to let everyone know what's going on in the All Time Low camp. We were scheduled to head out on the road with our boys in The Audition. We were more than overwhelmingly excited to be going out with a sick tour, but we were more excited that we'd be going out with some great friends. But sometimes things come up unexpectedly and you really have to take a step back and take a look at the big picture. Last year, my grandpa passed away and it was a really difficult time for my family and me. I'm finding myself in the same scenario once again with my other grandpa, at 104, who's health is declining rapidly. Due to my obligations with touring, recording, and just being in a band, my immediate family has been waiting on me to go visit him Overseas and basically the only time frame we could would be in June. With past experiences with losing family members, you really have to make priorities in life and family will always come first. Believe me, there's nothing I love more than to tour, but I really feel like I need to be with my family for that time. I'm away for most of the year and my family asks very little from me, and this is one thing I really feel I need to come through with. I just want to be the one to tell everyone how sorry we are about having to bail on this amazing tour. We want to send our apologies first and for most to all the kids that planned on seeing us at the shows. We urge everyone to still go out to the shows and support the bands because they are amazing. I have posted the dates below, so if the show is coming remotely near you, we suggest you hit it up. We also want to send an apology to the Audition, their management and booking agent, for giving us the opportunity and us having to leave it under these circumstances. We hope that everyone understands why I have come to this decision. We'll try to come up with something to make it up to all of you, so please keep your eyes and ears peeled.

Thanks for reading and understanding.
Jack Barakat
