Jack on Blink-182
Jack recently gave an interview to Alternative Press where he got to talk about his favourite band of all time, Blink-182, and what it means to be touring North America with them. You can read the article below.
Jack Barakat, guitarist for All Time Low, is a longtime fan of pop-punk legends Blink-182—ATL have even commented that they were originally a Blink-182 cover band. The first time he saw Blink was at Hershey Park venue in 2002. Tonight, he’ll play that venue—opening for the very band that inspired him to be a musician. In this exclusive with AP, he shares the experience from that first show and what it means to tour with his idols.
May 23, 2002.
The first actual tour I ever attended, I was 13 years old, about to graduate 8th grade and my mom had to give me her credit card. Blink-182 and Green Day were going on the Pop Disaster Tour, and I wasn't going to miss it. To be honest, at the time I was purely going to see Blink, even though Dookie was the first album I ever got, thanks to my brother. I was a big Green Day fan, but I was a Blink-182 fanatic. I pierced my ear because Mark did it. I analyzed the Enema Of The State and Take Off Your Pants And Jacket cd booklets through and through. I was as diehard as you could possibly be.
I went to the show with my buddy John, who I started playing music with. He is also the man I attribute to helping me start a band—without him, there would be no All Time Low. Ironically, we ended up kicking John out because he couldn't play the solo from “Rollercoaster” by Blink and Rian could (teenagers can be vicious).
We went as bandmates but mostly we went as best friends. My mom took us because we were young as shit. As soon as we got to Hershey Park Stadium, we noticed they weren't checking wristbands to get down into the GA section. We asked my mom if we could go down there and join the pit. My mom obliged "as long as we checked in every so often."
We watched Green Day's set with our eyes wide open. It was a crazy experience watching one of our favorite bands, and one of the world's biggest rock bands, perform. (Turns out that years later I would tour Europe with this band, as incredible as that experience was, it wouldn't come close to feeling as good as what was to come.) Green Day's energy was unparalleled to anything we had seen. Also, the smell of weed was rolling through the air, and we were stoked.
After a short changeover, the lights dimmed. I remember the butterflies in my stomach before Blink came out. This was a band I had studied: videos, CDs, pictures, websites. To me, they didn't exist outside music videos and DVD footage. I had done all my research. I didn't just love the music; I loved the lifestyle. I was balls deep at this point.
Anyways, I can't remember whether it was a kabuki drop or curtain opening. But I remember the snare roll and the guitar beginning “Anthem Part 2.” I don't remember a lot of the details, but I remember feeling numb, kinda floating. It was an out-of-body experience. It was that moment I remember looking at my drummer/best friend John and saying, "This is what we need to do."
I think about that night every time I walk on stage. It's the reason why I play music. It's the reason why I continued pushing my friends to join and start bands. I never was big into writing songs—I always help a little when I can. We have three other guys who are exceptional at it and always have been. My thing has always been performing and that has never changed.
Today we will take the stage at the same venue, opening up for the same band that brought me here all those years ago. I realize that we won't have the curtains, light show, pyro and crowd that Blink had that night. But even being mentioned in the same sentence as them has made this all worth it.
We have been on tour with Blink for a few weeks now, and all I can say is that we have never been treated better on a tour. The guys have been so great to us. They have set an example for how all headliners should treat the openers, and it makes me want to follow it.
Needless to say, hanging out with your idols is nuts. Fuck man. Dreams don't always come true, I won't lie and say they do. But when they do, nothing can prepare you for how great it is.

Wantagh review and more pictures
On the second date of the Blink-182 summer tour, All Time Low played at Jones Beach in Wantagh, NY. The website Cryptic Rock, which attended the show, posted a review online.
You can read the article below.
The second performer of the night was Maryland Pop Punk sensations All Time Low. Formed in 2003, at the peak of Pop Punk hype, All Time Low has become one of the most successful bands in the genre with six studio albums, including their 2015 effort, Future Hearts. Currently signed to Hopeless Records, the band is made up of Lead Vocalist and Rhythm Guitarist Alex Gaskarth, Lead Guitarist and Backing Vocalist Jack Barakat, Bass Guitarist Zack Merrick, and Percussionist Rian Dawson. All original members, they are joined by touring players; Rhythm Guitarists Bryan Donahue and Matt Colussy, and Backing Vocalist Matt Flyzik. With a list of chart-topping hits to their name, it was evident by the hoard of spectators, sporting All Time Low t-shirts, that they had their own dedicated fanbase in the house.
Eager for their set to begin, once the cartoonish skull and cross bones insignia with the band name draped across stage, everyone clapped and cheered in anticipation. Shortly after, All Time Low took to the platform with immense energy, waving back to the audience and taking their places. Forever inappropriately hilarious, Lead Singer Gaskarth addressed his bandmates, stating, “Holy shit, I am aroused guys. Let’s sing a song about being aroused,” to which he was met with peals of laughter from the crowd. In the dimming light, All Time Low introduced themselves, asking Jones Beach how they were feeling. The result was hooting and hollering, causing all band members to laugh and dive into their first song of the night, “Lost in Stereo.” With the stage dowsed in purple lights and the setting sun lighting up the audience, they continued with the catchy “A Love Like War,” followed by “Dancing With a Wolf,” and “Kids in the Dark.” Ever the entertainers, they went on to re-introduce their band as The All-American Rejects, and in homage to their summer tour mates they played an opening chord from hit song “Move Along.”
Continuing to be playful, they said, “We’re also A Day to Remember and Blink 182. We’re your favorite cover band! We were made in a lab to be their genetic superiors. Feel bad for us, we have no parents!” Provoking more laughs, the band plowed forward through the rest of their upbeat, yet emotionally invocative set list, playing “Backseat Serenade,” “Something’s Gotta Give,” and “Missing You.” Arousing the audience, in a musical way, they rounded out with hit song “Weightless,” and ended it off with iconic “Dear Maria, Count Me In.”
Still cracking jokes to the end, they said, “That last song was about a stripper we went to high school with,” before thanking the audience and saying good night. Unadulterated fun, All Time Low deserved all the wild cheers they received as they exited a now much fuller venue.

Syracuse show review and pictures
Yesterday, on the Blink-182 summer tour, All Time Low played in Syracuse, NY. The website NYS Music attended the show and reviewed it. You can read the article about All Time Low's performance below.
The show opened with Maryland natives All Time Low who gave a performance that left fans in awe. During their opening song, “Lost In Stereo,” guitarist Jack Barakat ran off stage and into the audience surprising hundreds of fans with pictures and high-fives.
Barakat went out of his way to hit every part of the venue from the floor seats, to out past the lawn, while continuing to perform “Lost In Stereo.” As exciting as it was to watch, Barakat should have expected the fans that ran after him in droves trying to get his attention.
“I grabbed some dude’s hand and he grabbed my ass,” said Barakat after he returned to the stage from being in the crowd. When returning, they played what was their best song of the night, “Weightless,” which showed off the most energy and excitement from the crowd.
As an opener, All Time Low expressed their incomparable joy for being asked to be a part of the tour with Blink-182. Frontman Alex Gaskarth opened up to the crowd about how they started playing music in high school, and found their influence from bands like Blink-182.
“We started this band when we were just in high school and we had just found out about bands like NOFX, Blink-182 and Green Day, and all of those bands are basically the reason we are a band,” said Gaskarth.
With some vocal issues to start off the night, Gaskarth stabilized his voice when singing the acoustic song, “Missing You,” which showed off his rich tonal quality, and less strain in his vocals.
As excited as fans were to see Barakat out-and-about in the venue, during All Time Low’s closing song, “Dear Maria, Count Me In,” Gaskarth followed the trend by running with his microphone up the halls of the amphitheater and ending against the barricade of the lawn.
Like every All Time Low performance, by the end of their set, the stage and their mic stands showed off a rainbow assortment of bras thrown on stage by young fans.
Many pictures from last night, which were also taken for their website, have been added in our gallery. Check them out!
