Now, the in the midst of recording a new album, the band have uploaded a second video that’s sparking even more theories concerning a possible new era.
With blacked-out profile pictures for the band account and each member, they first shared a video of the “Birthday” music video panda setting fire to a Last Young Renegade jacket, suggesting the end of their most recent era started in 2017.
Now, just like the first video is titled “panda_1120.mp4,” this new video was posted with a simple “010820.mp4,” both referring to the dates posted.
The new clip begins with the 2009 Nothing Personal era skull logo (which each member has inked) before glitching to the 2015 Future Hearts logo and then fading to black.

Fans also instantly began formulating theories of what the video could mean. They took note that the logos are fading to black and began theorizing this could mean a new one with the assumed upcoming era.

More on All Time Low
All Time Low confirmed the end of the Last Young Renegade era in July 2018, following it up with a few singles, “Everything Is Fine” and “Birthday,” (as promised) later that summer. As 2019 kicked off, frontman Alex Gaskarth revealed the band would be taking “a bit of a break” in 2019, which in turn allowed time for his side project with Mark Hoppus, Simple Creatures, and guitarist Jack Barakat’s WhoHurtYou.
In March 2019, the band confirmed the break was done, with plans to have new music out “definitely by 2020.” All Time Low also revealed they started working on some demos that will take what they learned with Last Young Renegade “and maybe make it a bit more upbeat.” Gaskarth admitted this past summer was a “nice window” to dig into the demos together.
They debuted a new track, “Getaway Green,” live at Slam Dunk in May 2019, and while there’s no confirmation that this will appear on their forthcoming album, we’ve got our fingers crossed for another update soon.
We see the iconic Panda from the “Birthday” video and he lights a barrel on fire that contains a pretty significant item. Get more details below.
In the video the panda walks into an empty warehouse. Old theater piano music is playing in the background. We see the panda light a match and toss it into a barrel. The panda walks out and the camera zooms in on the barrel, which now has a raging inferno inside. Inside the barrel appears to be an iconic jacket representing All Time Low’s last LP Last Young Renegade.
Approximately 24 hours after posting their panda teaser video, All Time Low deleted all traces of it. While the band’s profile pictures remain an empty black image, the video of their “Birthday”-starring Panda setting fire to the Last Young Renegade era jacket has been deleted.
Fans noticed the missing clip around 1 p.m. ET the next day, which has sparked even more questions than before. While the band and each member deleted the video, fans uploaded the clip originally titled “panda_1120.mp4” to their own accounts shortly after posting, which you can see below.

All Time Low just released this vignette of a panda burning their Last Young Renegades jackets. This most likely means they're making new music which is amazing. Hopefully I can see them on tour for the 3rd time · #AllTimeLow #AlexGaskarth #JackBarakat #RianDawson #ZackMerrick
