The band was speaking about their upcoming dates, and said: “We’ve been trying to get out on the road in a proper way for the last few years. We finally realized after playing When We Were Young that the world was ready to pull out of their ‘guilty pleasure chest’ and celebrate the soundtrack of their youth. When New Found Glory, The Starting Line, Motion City Soundtrack and The Get Up Kids signed on, the feeling was ‘This is a celebration of summers gone by.’ It’s time to embrace the cumulative joy of growing up. First we got you to “Swing Swing,” then we became your “Dirty Little Secret,” and you thought “It Would End Tonight” so we could “Move Along,” then we “Gave You Hell” for denying the fact that we’re the band you listened to your entire lives, whether you liked it or not.” The All-American Rejects took part in the ‘When We Were Young Festival’ along with headliners Paramore and My Chemical Romance, way back in October last year, over three dates.

When the Earth Comes Down, their third studio album, was released in 2008 and was soon after certified gold by the RIAA.
