The All-American Rejects Release Long Awaited New Single “Beekeeper’s Daughter”! New Album On The Way
Alternative/Rock group The All-American Rejects are making a return in 2012 with a brand new album. The group, known for such radio hits as “Gives You Hell”, “Move Along”, and “Dirty Little Secret” has not released an LP since December of 2008. (When The World Comes Down) The new project titled Kids In The Street is set to be released March 27, 2012 from DGC/Interscope Records. The entire album was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Greg Wells, who is known for his work with Adele, Katy Perry, and OneRepublic, among many others
The first single for the new album “Beekeeper’s Daughter” has been released to radio after it was first leaked. It is set for release for purchase on Tuesday (1/31/12). The song contains the same mixture of pop and rock elements that have proven so successful for the band in the past. AAR’s Tyson Ritter explains how the song actually is based on a time while Ritter was living in Los Angeles after wrapping two years of touring behind the band’s 2008 album When The World Comes Down.
“Beekeeper’s Daughter’ is a story about a guy who thinks he can get away with anything and always have a girl there waiting for him,” Ritter told Thronebuzz.com “He never backs down from that opinion. At the end of it, he’s even stronger and more snide and thinks he’s invincible no matter what. He’s an assh****, but at that point in my life, I was kind of an assh****. As we were making Kids in the Street, I went from that to being a completely humbled guy who’s looking at his reflection saying, ‘Wow, what have I done?’ It may make me not seem very likeable, but it was important that I be truthful and really open up on this album about what I’ve been through.’”
To go along with the new album, Kids In The Street, as well as the new single, The All-American Rejects have also recently released a list of brand new tour dates. The dates and venues are listed on the bands website at http://www.allamericanrejects.com/events/
