Billboard: Jack to write music with actor Tyler Posey
Billboard recently interviewed actor Tyler Posey to talk about his upcoming career in music. Last year, he went on stage with All Time Low at the MTV Fandom Awards, and now, he is collaborating with Jack and other artists for an upcoming project. Read what he had to say below:
Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey is working with Jack Barakat from Maryland punk-pop band All Time Low on a new project. The MTV actor, who spent years in a punk band in his native California, has a ready-made fanbase, a couple of million followers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and isn’t interested in signing a record deal.
“It’s about to get big,” Posey told Billboard in an exclusive interview in Toronto, while in town to present an award at the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards. “The collaborators are big, and my music career is about to take off.
“It’s so early in the works, but Jack from All Time Low, he and I have become really good friends over the past year, and just recently we talked about producing something with each other and writing music with each other. So we’re about to do something really big and, hopefully, do a collab with a bunch of other punk guys. It’s all punk. My whole life is punk. That’s all I want to do is be performing punk onstage, so it’s going to happen. Within the next year, I guarantee you.”
In the July 2015 video post, he reveals he was at Comic-Con when All Time Low invited him onstage to sing with them. “I didn’t know that was going to happen,” he says, adding that in one of his podcasts he mentioned that “a fantasy of mine is being pulled up onstage by one of my favorite bands and singing or playing an instrument with them. And it happened. I almost cried; it was so cool.”

He was asked if he was going to join the band and sing this song with them on their summer tour together. You can read his reply below.
CDM: You worked with All Time Low on 'Tidal Waves' last year and you’re about to head out on tour with them. Do you plan to play it live together at all?
MARK: I don’t know that we’ll play it live, I don’t think that I’ll go out and sing with them before I sing with Blink, but they’re a great band - I was glad to be part of their album.

5th of July 2016
Alex tweeted a picture of a white bird on a black background with the date 5th of July 2016 written in American English. The design, quite similar to Mark Hoppus' brand Atticus, could make us think that Alex is about to release a new clothing line. Besides, on his Instagram post, he tagged Glamour Kills on the picture.
We will find out more in two weeks.

Pictures: Grand Opening of The Riff
On 17 June, Jack opened his brand new bar The Riff, this time in Los Angeles, CA. Before the grand opening, he answered a few questions on Alternative Press. You can read a few excerpts below.
You opened The Rockwell, a scene-oriented bar in Baltimore, a few years ago. What made you want to get this one in LA started?A few hours ago, pictures from the grand opening appeared on the web. You can find them in our gallery!
JACK BARAKAT: I started the Rockwell because of a buddy who owns an old record store in Baltimore, one of the oldest record stores still around in the East Coast, called Soundgarden. There are so many bars in Baltimore that are just, you know, you just go in and drink. Some of them have like open mics and some of them are just sports bars. There wasn't anything like a theme bar, where people wanted to hear good rock music and early-2000s emo/pop punk go. We would tour England, and they had tons of places like this. It's so common over there to see that, and I was like, "Why isn't that over here in the U.S.?" There are just as many fans of this style of music in this genre of music in the States. I think it's slowly starting to make its way to the U.S., you know, with things like Emo Night out in LA, and then there's one in Brooklyn. They have it all over now. After going to see Emo Night and seeing how all these bands need a place to hang out, not only for Taking Back Tuesdays, which is only one night a month, but just having a spot to kind of go to on the weekends as well.
We had so much success with the Rockwell in Baltimore. It's a bar where you don't care. No one is too cool to dance or rock out—just kind of like, lose their shit. There's no judgement. It's kind of a place for everyone to be themselves, and I think that's what we want to do in LA. When I first moved out to LA when I was 21, Angels and Kings was about to open up. Pete Wentz asked me and Alex if we wanted to be investors, so we had a hand in the opening of Angels and Kings out there. It was an unbelievable setting for us to have. When you're 21, you're young, you just moved to a new city, and here you go, you have this bar where tons of fans are hanging out and people your age, and everyone kind of has the same mentality. There's nothing like that in LA right now, and I miss that.
I’m in a partnership with Jon Nichols. He's a really big part of this. He's the one that brought this to me.
Why can't someone miss going to The Riff? What do you think will be the thing that gets people in the door?
I think the atmosphere is going to be amazing. First of all, it's pretty fucking packed. It's a really big bar, so it's a cool place to throw parties because there's enough room where in one of the rooms, we can have a live acoustic band set-up, so if a band has an album release party, or they have just anything they want to do, any kind of event, there's just so much room. It's going to be music-themed. There are going to be instruments all over the place, and band pictures of your favorite bands from live shows. It's just going to be very music inspired and driven. We kind of want to do what we did with the Rockwell in Baltimore and create a space where you can be yourself with no judgement and just listen to what you want to listen to. It's not to say that it'll only be rock music played there. There's going to be something for everyone. But that's going to be a majority of it.
