In a far-ranging interview with Alternative Press, All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth revealed that the alt-rock powers have jumped out of the major label waters and back into the indie waters, resigning with Hopeless Records in the process. 

As revealed to AP’s Matthew Colwell by Gaskarth as to how it happened:

"It was a process that came naturally. Having worked quite a good ways through the record independently, [we] started reaching out to various labels to see what the prospect was of us signing with different companies. It was a good situation in the sense that it was the first time in a long time that we got to sit back and mull over a decision and make the decision that was absolutely, 100 percent what’s best for us. A lot of the time, especially when you’re a young band or when you’re already in a deal, as was the case Interscope, you have to make a few compromises because that’s the only way you’ll get it done. But, this time around, we were in [a] unique position where we were able to ask for exactly what we wanted and see who was willing to give [us] that.”

Also revealed in the interview are hints of their upcoming followup to “Dirty Work” and the recent vocal frustrations concerning their one and only major label record.  To see the the rest of the interview:  http://www.altpress.com/features/entry/interview_all_time_lows_alex_gaskarth_on_signing_with_hopeless
