Kids in the Dark

Album: Future Hearts (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Alex Gaskarth (from Kerrang!) "This song is the opposite side of 'Kicking & Screaming.' If people are going to leave us alone and let us do our thing, then we're going to make the most of it. It's also a song for anyone that's had people turn their backs on them. It's almost throwing it back in our faces."
  • All Time Low called on their fan club to help them with the video. Guitarist Jack Barakat explained to UK newspaper The Sun: "When you're filming a video, you want to have the most genuine reaction from fans. You don't want actors dancing and jumping so it's cool to have people who know and love the songs to be in the video."
