It’s been a while since fans have heard from The All American Rejects, but that’s about to change. The band will be releasing two new songs titled “Sweat” and “Close Your Eyes” on July 7, and they’ve also confirmed that a new album is on the way.
Tyson Ritter recently spoke to Billboard and confirmed that so far six songs have been recorded for the new album.
“We’ve got six tracks on wax. This pairing, “Close Your Eyes” and “Sweat,” is a tasting. This is the sauvignon blanc and this is the cabernet. It’s not going to be the same Rejects record because it never is, if you’ve listened to one of our records. This time, to me, the visual offering is so important. The last five years of learning my craft as an actor and really developing that side of being a visual artist in that way has made me realize how important that really is — to put the eyes to the ears. This is going to be more of a visual experience. This record is going to be about your eyes and the headphones.”
