Warning: This is not just an announcement for this brand new video from All Time Low. Watch the video before going on or else you will have most of the video spoiled for you! You do not want to have that happen, not with this one. Watch it before continuing on.
On March 9, 2015, All Time Low released a brand new song, "Kids In The Dark", and it actually got us wondering a bit if Alex is alright. With this song, he appears to be speaking not only for thousands of people who feel alone, and possibly broken -but for himself as well.
On March 10, they released the music video for this new song, and its a powerful video that reminds you just how much of a release a concert can be. We see a girl, who looks a lot like a YouTuber, Alexis G Zall, hiding and looking distressed as her parents argue. A letter shows up through her mail slot, much like the Hogwarts letters in Harry Potter, and she walks out. She meets a woman with blue hair and she takes her to a rave, that appears to be at an All Time Low concert.
If you have someone in your life that doesn't quite understand how music can be an escape, show them this video. It may just drive the message home for them, if you tell them to pay attention to the video and listen to the lyrics. This is a rarity, but the video goes along with the song perfectly. This is one of the best videos All Time Low has ever released, and the song really is awesome as well.
Almost everyone could relate to it, because we've all felt like we've been alone and left in the dark. "They left us alone, the kids in the dark, to burn out forever or light up a spark. We come together, state of the art. We’ll never surrender the kids in the dark. So let the world sing!"
It tells the story of feeling alone, and finally finding some relief. It talks of bringing people together, and its just beautiful. Even if you are not an All Time Low fan, give this song (and the music video) a chance. They may impress you.
"Kids In The Dark" is available now on iTunes, and it will be on All Time Low's brand new album, Future Hearts. The album comes out April 7 -get excited for it.
Never surrender -and let the world sing.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
