Every year, I get one email from one person asking me to make a post on AP.net about their birthday. That person is Gunz from The Gunz Show and today is his birthday. Today is also Jack Barakat's birthday, and he got an early birthday present this year when All Time Low's Future Hearts was the best-selling album in the world, so you shouldn't feel the need to go shopping for him now. Good job to both of these people for surviving one more year.

"I eventually after freaking out.. starting to get suicidal about things.. I started to see a therapist and started seeing about medication and stuff and just being like I need to figure this out – whatever’s going on with me… I can’t keep suffering… I need to sort out the things that are missing me out… I eventually found out I suffer from PTSD from childhood things that happened… but I’ve realized that it’s okay that you’re damaged and It’s been a lesson in learning and that’s sort of what this whole EP is about…”

"We have some new music coming up. We have a whole new project that’s done. I don’t know when it’s coming out, but when it does I think that’s really going to be the “Oh shit!” moment….It’s something that us 5 wrote on the road. No studio. We recorded straight onto the computer, all ourselves. It’s us now, which is a little bit different. But I’m more proud of it than anything we put out in a long time. "

Here's what I'll say, there are no details or anything set in stone. But I actually was with Tom a few days ago and earlier this year we wrote quite a bit of music, 7 songs. More than half an album worth of material... He's been busy doing, who knows what he's doing...
Every year I try to convince Midtown. In my perfect world this year’s headliners would have been Fall Out Boy and Midtown. I’m going to get them – I think it will be next year or 2015. Every year I go after them first and then Jay-Z, and as soon as they say no I know that it’s a normal year. Midtown know when the right time will be. It has to be a mutual thing.
