The All-American Rejects

The All-American Rejects gearing up to release new music in 2012

Multiplatnium rock band, fronted by Tyson Ritter, will release brand new single "Beekeeper's Daughter"

The Shaking Off The Rust Tour Kicks Off January 18th In San Luis Obispo

DGC/Interscope recording artists The All-American Rejects will kick off 2012 with the release of "Beekeeper's Daughter" - the multi-platinum rock band's first single since "Gives You Hell" became the No. 1 most-played song of 2009 at Top 40 radio.

Written by Rejects' lead singer, lyricist, and bassist Tyson Ritter and guitarist Nick Wheeler, the potent pop-rock "Beekeeper's Daughter," available digitally on January 24th, captures a tumultuous time while Ritter was living in Los Angeles after wrapping two years of touring behind the band's 2008 album When The World Comes Down.

"Beekeeper's Daughter is a story about a guy who thinks he can get away with anything and always have a girl there waiting for him," Ritter says. "He never backs down from that opinion. At the end of it, he's even stronger and more snide and thinks he's invincible no matter what. He's an asshole, but at that point in my life, I was kind of an asshole. As we were making Kids in the Street, I went from that to being a completely humbled guy who's looking at his reflection saying, 'Wow, what have I done?' It may make me not seem very likeable, but it was important that I be truthful and really open up on this album about what I've been through."

"Beekeeper's Daughter," along with the rest of the tracks on Kids In The Street, was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Greg Wells, who is known for his work with Adele, Katy Perry, and OneRepublic, among many others.

"Greg was the first producer we've worked with who really spoke my language, which translated into the sound of the album," Ritter says. "If you really want to know what Kids In The Street sounds like, it sounds like The All-American Rejects finally got their shit together and wrote a record that was going to keep them around."

Since forming in Stillwater, Oklahoma in 1999, The All-American Rejects have released three studio albums: their platinum self-titled debut, featuring the breakthrough hit "Swing Swing," followed by 2005's double-platinum Move Along, which spawned the Top 10 hits "It Ends Tonight," "Dirty Little Secret," and "Move Along," as well as the gold-certified When The World Comes Down, featuring the 4-million seller "Gives You Hell," which spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Top 40 charts, and more than 13 weeks in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The All-American Rejects, which also includes rhythm guitarist Mike Kennerty and drummer Chris Gaylor, have sold more than 4 million albums and 16 million singles worldwide.
