The All-American Rejects to begin recording new album, organize contest to benefit Haiti

February 23 2011, 2:31 PM EST By Tyler Common

The All-American Rejects have been inactive since the band's stint on the Vans' Warped Tour last year. They are quickly preparing recording for their fourth full-length album after writing new material for nearly a year.

In the meantime, frontman Tyson Ritter started an organization "Don't Hate on Haiti", designed to help provide relief to victims of the recent natural disasters that have taken place. Ritter has launched a contest, when you donate, you are eligible to win prizes from the band all while doing something good. Read the full press release below and check out this link for more info.

So, we have been writing relentlessly for the last year and are hitting the studio to lay down the tracks for our fourth record soon. My last year has been devoted to music and my charity, So far, we have donated about $25,000 to Charity:Water, a true not-for-profit organization that builds clean water projects across the world. Every $5,000 we generate builds a clean water well in Haiti.

To coincide with our going into the studio the band and I have decided to have a contest to help maximize our efforts to generate cash for the cause. So here's the idea:

Whoever raises the most money for by April 1st of this year will win the following sweet ass prizes.

1. A one-on-one skype session with you and the band in the studio to talk about tunes, the charity, what you ate for lunch, whatever you want!!

2. A guitar signed by the band

3. A Don’t Hate On Haiti shirt signed by the band

All you have to do to win is spread the love and raise as much dough as you can. Once we have all the monies counted and collected, we will announce the winner on all our our social networking outlets.

Send all contributions to:

c/o Dont Hate On Haiti
P.O. Box 4084
Santa Monica, CA 90411

Attach your contact information so we can reach you if you're the lucky winner!!

Good luck!!!
