Up All Night

Album: not on an album (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • "Up All Night" is about partying the night away. In our interview with the group's bass player Todd Harrell, he explained that 7dayBinge allowed him to delve into darker songwriting areas that he was unable to explore with his other band, 3 Doors Down: "We definitely like to rock it out and let our hair down a little bit. The songs we write in 7day are fun songs, just songs we like to jam to, and it's fun doing that. I get to do things with 7day that I don't get to do with 3 Doors. So the songs we write there are songs that probably wouldn't make it on a 3 Doors record, but it's also things that I love to do… It's just things that we probably wouldn't write in 3 Doors. We keep it orientated for kids to listen to in 3 Doors, and 7day is definitely a darker and more party-based band, I guess you could say."
