    The All-American Rejects are teasing a new single called “Sweat.” Lead singer Tyson Ritter sat down with Billboard to talk about the band’s upcoming album and what’s next for the band:


    That’s all about to change. A pair of new songs — “Sweat” and “Close Your Eyes” — are due July 7, with their fifth full-length looming in the fall. We hopped on the phone with Ritter to get all the details: the benefits of pressing pause and ignoring outside pressures on your art, learning to love writing again, and returning to the project you’ve been wielding since adolescence.

    And:


    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.

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    I'm in. I wonder what direction they'll head to with this release.

    Might be Spider-Man...

    Guessing it'll be electronic heavy? Also, this and Homecoming on the same day? WOOH

    Keep the formula going and make each album better than the last. I love the last one so much so it'll be hard

    That's great he want to focus on visuals, but if the music isn't good it won't really matter...

    I feel like KITS would make for a really good "visual" album. All the synths and sounds and different moods brought a lot of cool mental images, which were different for each song. I hope this lives up to what he's saying.

    Typically I wouldn't be too excited for a visual album, but that trailer has got me stoked! Plus Tyson and co. are a talented bunch of peeps, so I have a lot of faith in this.

    No no, it's a good record. I'm referring to that "DGAF" song or whatever from last summer

    I am surprised it didn't end up as a single. It was catchy as hell live. I wonder if they are hoping for large radio play.
