All Time Low Performs “Monsters” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
- American rock band All Time Low appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform “Monsters”.
The band share on social media, “Monsters on The Ellen DeGeneres Show! Any opportunity we've had to perform over this last difficult year has felt so incredibly special, glad we could play this one.”
The song was released from their eighth studio album “Wake Up, Sunshine” last April, written by FRND, Kevin Fisher, Jack Barakat, Alex Gaskarth, and Blackbear.
The original version of the song features American rapper blackbear. But last December, the band re-released the song with American singer-songwriter Demi Lovato.
The song is their first number one on the Billboard Alternative Airplay chart.
- Frontman Alex Gaskarth told Kerrang about the song, “This was done in Palm Springs, in the later part of the process. We knew once we'd written it that we had something special; there was an energy that felt like it was going to be one of the standout songs on the record. Andrew [Goldstein, songwriter] had been working with blackbear on his new music, and as we were listening back to everything, he spoke up and said, 'It would be really cool if we sent this to blackbear!' We had never thought of that before, but he was really into it, and he sent back this thing to Andrew saying, 'This is kind of the headspace I'm in at the moment anyway, so I already feel like I could write something for this.' It really elevated the song, and took it to this new, refreshing place that we had never properly explored before. We've never really collaborated with someone in rap or hip-hop, and this brought a lot more energy to the song. It was a fun one to do!”
