Meet Allstar Weekend, a band who you might call a mix between Blink 182 and the Jonas Brothers, preparing to unleash their debut, full-length album this summer. This Hollywood Records quartet may be young, but they have the talent, nerve and off-the-chart charm needed to go all the way. Beyond their exceptional musicianship and stage presence, these guys write great pop songs: melodic, smart and edgy. Moreover, they wield a mature craftsmanship beyond their years.
Currently Allstar Weekend is in the studio working the likes of Howard Benson, Eddie Galan, Charlotte Caffey, John Feldman and Dave Bassett. But long before that, San Diego bands homegrown demos were good enough to wow siblings Richard and Stefanie Reines, founders of Drive-Thru Records, and now managers of the band. “We don’t freak out about bands too often, and we never insist every band we work with is destined for Top 40 success,” says Stefanie. “Allstar Weekend is one of those rare instances where we just know theyre going to be huge.”
So far, they’ve racked up more than 2.5 million Myspace plays and 50,000 YouTube plays for their video of “Journey To The End Of My Life.” In concert, Allstar Weekend has shared the stage with bands like Justin Bieber, The Maine, Forever The Sickest Kids, and Selena Gomez.
Stay tuned for the premiere of the band’s new single “A Different Side Of Me” on February 19 and forthcoming video on February 21. Visit AllstarWeekendRocks.com for more info.
