On the "Dirty Work Tour" with All Time Low, Yellowcard, Hey Monday, and the Summer Set, pop-punk is the flavor of choice. All Time Low's 2011 album, Dirty Work, is where the tour title comes from, and all of the bands involved have done plenty of "dirty work" lately. That is, if we're talking about a lot of long hours of recording and preparing to upstage previous albums and performances.
You've got vets of the scene Yellowcard back stronger with a new album, When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes, and West Palm Beach's Hey Monday Candles EP was recently used on an episode of Glee. Add the tireless Summer Set, which sounds keen to music of the '80s with an innovative spark based on songs like "Chelsea" and "Young."
