Tyson Ritter, the frontman of The All-American Rejects is just about one of the verses of "Mona Lisa" to sing for the 29th time. "All right, good try," the voice commented behind the glass. "Have some really good moments here." Producer Eric Valentine sitting behind the mixing desk in his Barefoot Studios in Hollywood and are nonchalant his two cents, while next door a couple of buddies from Oklahoma are in the room, one record their third album live. Welcome to the musical womb, where melodies and ideas merge, be frozen and preserved riffs, voices and lives are changed, molts and transformations take place and everything is given for it to write another chapter in a success story. Nevertheless, one has to say that the way that The All-American Rejects have chosen to, their third album to create "When the World Comes Down", was anything but flat and straight.
"With this album we had plenty of headwinds," Nick admits with a wry grin. "After the success of` Move Along' we wanted to face new challenges. And we wanted to animate our fans to grow with us. Last time were all songs already when we went into the studio. Everything was prepared and perfectly rehearsed. We had just come into the studio, our Parts import, while Howard Benson, our producer, some regulators moved - and so everything was just six weeks in the box. The new LP shows clearly where we are currently as people - not only as a musician. It shows the here and now. That's why we had the bus rides take, so we had to lock in secluded huts and live through the torment of earlier again, the pain from a time in which we have not known. "
Bus rides? Secluded cabins? Anguish and pain? How glorious the potholes are located on the creative path that no one else does? "When we as worked on the song `Real World', by our standards a fairly aggressive rock song, we were just in a room together, got started, and the result was really bad," Mike recalls. "So I flew with Chris to Florida, we visited Nick and Ty on the Gulf Coast and hung there from for a month. Ty has Drums and so a really shitty little amplifier. We hunted the drums by the amplifier and have worked the song. As for the cottage and the bus trip across the country, you have to Ty and ask Nick. "
"` Breakin'' was on the bus, "says Ty. "I wrote the chorus in Eric's studio, but after a few weeks when I tried to put the piece finished, I had a nervous breakdown and was claustrophobic; I just do not know what to do. It was as if I fall into an abyss would and a few things with me into the deep tear would. I was depressed and was worse that I could not let up - what an artist as sooner or later has to be definitely doomed. So took Nick and I the next bus and simply drove on Interstate 10 eastbound, just like that, with no fixed destination. Well, as already indicated was `Breakin'' go while I sat back with Nick on the bus and worked on chord sequences and text passages. The song is for us definitely atypical. He is different and kind of strange. "
"Ty and I have known so well that two weeks in the rear seats of a bus just does not suffice all personal to light to carry," says Nick. "We're doing this together. I've known him since I'm 14. We discussed About insecurities but accepted nevertheless, the direction in which things developed. We knew we were getting bigger as a band. During their stay in the cottage in Rabun County, Georgia, where they have the film `Deliverance of Erste' rotated, we had written to the four songs, two of which ended up on the album,` Damn Girl 'and `Falling Apart'. It has the twelfth day have been when Ty told me: `One day yet, only one day, then have wir's.' And then he put on his headphones and played something on the keyboard while I from another a guitar part Pieces played until he suddenly said, `Okay, I hab's.' and then he played me the chorus of` Mona Lisa', and I found the once awesome, but when we grossed the idea with the other guys, voted nevertheless something is. Somehow it sounded for an alternative version of Southern Country Rock, where the chords are played too close together. We were completely at the end and played in front of the Demo Eric, and only said: `What on this demo version does not? You have it so play 'And then it worked - we recorded the song on the spot live and now we find it was amazing. One thing that the creation of this LP appeared During repeatedly, was the question `What did you say the idea for this song? 'And every time there was such that less was ultimately more."
AAR are more than one band; there are four friends who have found each other and experiencing what is commonly called the "American Dream". Tyson and Nick founded the band and released the EP "Same Girl, New Songs" in the summer of 2001. The next year, Mike and Chris joined the band, and in October 2002 the quartet released the eponymous debut album, which is already the first single "Swing Swing "turned out to be a commercial success. Then they completed a tour to the other and submitted in july 2005, "Move Along", on the next to the homonymous hymn two more smash hits were represented, "Dirty Little Secret" and "It Ends Tonight". So the native Southern Boys avancierten gradually become real rock stars - the plate was certified platinum - and presented with their grandiose melodies even the pop sector upside down.
While many bands success sooner or later brings also problems, the Rejects came nearer only. It's probably a question of character and education. "I was originally enrolled at the University of Central Oklahoma, because I wanted to be doctor," says Chris. "Until I then the call from Ty got; I threw everything at once, and waited for the band. I love to sit behind the drums - I could make from morning to evening. The more I play, the happier I am, and the less frequently I get into trouble. Even as we earned $ 50 per concert and I needed no other job more, I had the feeling to have won the lottery. Success is relative. When we received our first Gold Award, I thought that all this for a while might work. The recordings for `When the World Comes Down 'definitely have bound us together even more. Tyson has developed incredibly in the past year. And we all with him. "
make songs like "Believe", with which they commemorate a deceased friend and Facts About the meaning of life (and about what comes next), the ambitious "Another Heart Calls", the first duet of AAR for which you two sisters from Alabama (the Pierces) have worked, the rearing and punchy "Hope it Gives You Hell", which was on a trip to Vancouver, the show incredibly vibrant "Falling Apart" or provided with a huge hook "Damn Girl" impressively how well designed and catchy their compositions are. Rounding of a classic sound, a lot of energy and courage to experiment, it is already clear that the fanbase of Rejects will grow again thanks to this board ...
"I want this record is not only good for us; they must be more: good for our fans namely "Ty concludes. "Ultimately, we are just a band, a few good friends that what they are doing, means a lot. When you have cleared all the nonsense only out of the way, all that remains is love. I'm not a rock star yet the hero of my hometown. I'm just a nobody. So finally it is also said in the song, `you're nobody 'til somebody loves you'."
