Timonium-bred pop-punkers All Time Low have a new music video for the song “For Baltimore,” (watch it above) an ode to the band’s hometown.
Set in the pages of a cartoon-animated high school yearbook, the clip follows lead singer Alex Gaskarth on a quest to catch up with his blue-haired crush, Zoey (think "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" without the evil exes).
As Gaskarth rushes around, we see some great shots of Baltimore staples, from the Inner Harbor skyline to East Mount Vernon Place to Rams Head Live masquerading as “Bulls Head Live.” He eventually sees himself as the guitarist on stage at a concert there, which is no stretch of the imagination.
All Time Low started when its members were in high school at Dulaney and Towson; the video shows how far they’ve come but also how much they credit their hometown for their growth.
The second single off the band’s latest album, “For Baltimore” is the 10th track on "Don’t Panic," which was released on Oct. 9 by Hopeless Records. (Read Wesley Case's review of the album here.) All Time Low plays Rams Head Live Nov. 23 with the Summer Set, Hit the Lights and Downtown Fiction.
Watch the video below.
