All Time Low‘s Alex Gaskarth has been pretty busy with his side project Simple Creatures alongside Mark Hoppus. However, guitarist Jack Barakat has been keeping pretty busy himself.

Barakat surprised fans earlier this month by making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with Bryce Vine. Now, it looks like the ATL guitarist may be teasing a side project of his own.

Check out the cryptic teaser below!

Back in April, Gaskarth and Barakat sat down with KROQ to discuss when we could expect new ATL jams, during which, Barakat revealed he was working on a little something himself.

“Alex is doing Simple Creatures, I’m working on a little somethin’, somethin’,” Barakat says in the interview.

You can view the full interview below.

Now, the ATL guitarist has taken to Instagram to tease “WhoHurtYou 6/21” along with a cryptic video.

Could this be that little “somethin’, something'” he’s been working on?

We have so many questions, but it looks like we’ll have to wait until Friday for some answers.

What do you think Barakat is up to? Do you think this is the guitarist’s side project? Could we get a new song on Friday? Sound off your theories in the comments below!

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
