ALL TIME LOW will ring in 2009 with a live performance on MTV’s annual New Year’s Eve special, with host Miley Cyrus and additional performances by Metro Station, The Academy Is… and Kevin Rudolph. The special will air live on Wednesday, December 31st from 8-9:30pm ET, with an encore presentation at 10:30pm ET featuring a live countdown from Times Square.
Signed to Hopeless while still in high school, ALL TIME LOW released its Put Up or Shut Up EP in 2006, which quickly lodged itself on the Billboard Charts. Its breakthrough full-length So Wrong It’s Right came out in 2007 launching the hits “Dear Maria (Count Me In)” and “Poppin’”, helping to further cement the band’s standing as pop-punk favorites. With a new album tentatively set for release this summer and continued support from fans and media outlets such as MTV/mtvU, Alternative Press, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Absolutepunk.net to name a few, 2009 looks to be another stellar year for ALL TIME LOW.
