THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS Celebrate Reissue of Self-Titled Debut Album Out August 25th via UMe

“In 2002 the band enjoyed near immediate mainstream success when their self-titled debut album climbed the charts mere months after the boys graduated high school. From there, The All-American Rejects continued releasing popular, punk rock music. Their songs were party anthems, breakup chants, and pub-crawl playlists toppers.” – The Aquarian

Featuring some of the band’s most famous songs, The All-American Rejects contains such breakthrough singles like the addictive “Swing, Swing” (peaked at #8 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks in the United States”), the explosive “My Paper Heart,” and the punk-fueled “The Last Song.” As a bonus, the reissue will include a special 7” with two new versions of classic songs: “The Cigarette Song (Acoustic Version)” and “Don’t Leave Me (Demo).” 

“A lot of our contemporaries make a big deal to break up, and we get it; it’s probably good for their psyche to draw a line in the sand, but we’re never gonna do that,” lead vocalist Tyson Ritter says. “As much as we might have going on in our lives, the one thing that we can all agree on with The All-American Rejects is that we’re never gonna stop doing this.” 

Founded in 1999 out of Stillwater, Oklahoma, the band has released four albums, countless hit singles, like “Move Along,” “Dirty Little Secret” and “Swing, Swing,” and has toured alongside legendary rock bands such as Blink 182 and Bon Jovi. Starting as teenagers, their self-titled album was a defining moment for the band, which ignited the fire of indelible pop-rock  hooks. Released in 2002, the big wave of pop-punk music exploded, with Fuse, MTV, and TRL leading the charge. The band gained momentum with their debut album, never afraid to expose their honest thoughts and genuine selves, making songs relatable to teenagers across the globe.
