The All-American Rejects return to the road this spring with an extensive six-week North American tour to promote their new album the Kids in the Street.
The All-American Rejects -- with lead singer, bassist, and lyricist Tyson Ritter and his long-time friend guitarist Nick Wheeler -- formed as teenagers in Stillwater, Okla., before being joined by guitarist Mike Kennerty and drummer Chris Gaylor.
The band's second album, Move Along (2005), brought the band mainstream success. The album produced three hit singles: "It Ends Tonight,” "Dirty Little Secret" and "Move Along,” all of which charted in the top-15 on the Billboard Hot-100 chart.
Their third album, 2008’s When The World Comes Down, played to ecstatic audiences across the globe, thanks to scoring their first international hit, “Gives You Hell,” which also spent four weeks at number one at Top-40 Radio, became the number-one most-played song of 2009 of the format, and went on to sell four million copies in the U.S. alone.
