All Time Low plan online events as ‘Wake Up Sunshine’ physicals delayed
In a new post over on their social media accounts, they're letting fans know the album will arrive on streaming platforms as scheduled but physical copies are being delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The band previously dropped a handful of tracks from the album over the past while.
It started with "Some Kind Of Disaster" which arrived back in January. After four cryptic teasers spread out over a couple of weeks, the Baltimore-based punks gave fans their first new music in over a year.
Then, they ended up revealing details for the new album which is set to arrive on April 3. They offered up another teaser with a hotline that you could call. Upon calling, one is treated to some very mysterious dialogue that doesn’t give too much away but talks about sunshine pretty heavily.

"We got back to how we started,” Alex says. “It had been a long time since the four of us made a record under one roof. That became a central theme. We’ve been a band for 17 years. Everybody brought something to the table. A lot of what you’re hearing came from those magic moments together.”
Jack Barakat then chimed in and agreed. “I think we accomplished something special. By putting our four heads together, we were able to make a classic All Time Low album.”
A few days later, they gifted fans another new single, “Sleeping In.”
Last week, the band also gave “Getaway Green” an official release after debuting the track last year at Slam Dunk Festival.
The song being titled “Getaway Green” and releasing on St. Patrick’s Day is also not a coincidence. The band shifted all of the Wake Up, Sunshine-yellow on their profiles to shamrock green. You can check out that video below.
Now, Gaskarth is back to give fans an update on the status of the album.
With the world shifting all priorities to combatting the coronavirus pandemic, production of CDs and vinyl is being delayed. Amazon has even stopped adding stock of non-essential items in their warehouses to make room for medical supplies and more.
They're still releasing the album on time digitally but fans who are ordering from Amazon or other retailers like this will see significant delays. He says orders from their webstore are still shipping on time but that too could change. With that in mind, they also can't perform shows at the moment and are planning to keep releasing new songs leading up to the album as a way to keep connecting with fans. There will be three new tracks arriving while interactive events are soon to be announced.
