It looks like All Time Low’s sixth studio album, Future Hearts, is in for quite a ride. Industry forecasters believe the thirteen track album, which dropped April 3rd, will sell over sixty thousand copies by the end of this Sunday. If the album sells as it’s predicated to, Future Hearts should chart at number two on Billboard 200 when its new top ten is revealed on April 15th. Future Hearts was produced by John Feldmann, Mike Green, and band-members Alex Gaskarth and Rian Dawson and if all goes well, will be the band’s most successful album yet. The band have already released two of the album’s singles, “Something’s Gotta Give,” and “Kids in the Dark” the former being favorably compared to Yellowcard. The album itself, which boasts collaborations with Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus and Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden, has so far received generally positive reviews. When talking about Future Hearts and the evolution the band has tried to achieve on the album, Gaskarth said “We’ve certainly tried some new things, but I don’t think it’s necessarily going to alienate anyone or push people away that loved the last record. There’s a lot of stuff that’s in line with Don’t Panic, but there’s a lot of stuff that’s a logical next step from it, too.”
Previously, the band’s third studio album, Nothing Personal, was the groups highest charting album, with first week sales reaching sixty-three thousand copies. It was originally predicted to sell sixty thousand to seventy-five thousand copies, guaranteeing it place in the top ten. Though it did not sell quite as many as predicated it did debut at number four on Billboard 200 and became one of the bestselling rock albums of the year.
