Poor old All Time Low. This month’s cover stars signed a major label deal and have since had to sit patiently and watch their new album ‘Dirty Work’ slowly creep backwards on the label’s release schedule. Our cover was planned way in advance and the album was still slipping as we put the issue together. Finally, though, it looks like the date has settled and you should be getting your mitts on it come June. This means that our feature is a little early, but hey, we’re sure that’s not a big issue for all you ATL fans. Sometimes shit like this happens, in fact, in the music industry it happens a lot. It’s dirty work, but someone’s got to do it, right? Darren Taylor, Editor
