All Time Low have been celebrating the end of the year with a slew of Nothing Personal 10-year anniversary shows. The band hit the Starland Ballroom for the third time Sunday, marking their final stop of the mini run. Adding to an already electric evening, the four-piece appropriately covered a classic My Chemical Romance track while in the latter’s hometown at a venue they’ve played multiple times.
All Time Low kicked off their Nothing Personal shows in mid-December in Los Angeles at the Fonda Theatre. The gig marked the first time they played two tracks off the 2009 LP, “Hello, Brooklyn” and “Walls.”
“There’s definitely things that I probably wouldn’t do now on a song that I did then,” Gaskarth states. “I was trying things and wanting to make stuff work. And other things were a little bit of a lack of knowledge of how to correctly write songs.”
“I probably wouldn’t chant the names of a bunch of cities again if I was being honest. [Laughs.] But that song was fun actually because we, so “Hello Brooklyn,” we’ve literally never played live. That’s one we really had to dig in on and get right as we played it again for this rerecord.”
Now, All Time Low are solidifying another first for this run of shows by playing a cover of MCR’s “I’m Not Okay (I Promise).” However, this isn’t the first time the band have covered MCR. Last December at a Good Things Festival after-party, Gaskarth joined Palaye Royale for their “Teenagers” performance.
My Chemical Romance made their big return with “I’m Not Okay (I Promise)” Dec. 20 at the Shrine making the ATL cover all the more special.
