This is the story of Allstar Weekend, formerly known as Allstar, and formerly-formerly known (or not-so-known) as Outerspace Politicians. The story goes something like this…
Zach and Cameron met in Middle School in the San Diego suburb of Poway, California. Zach taught Cameron how to not be socially awkward, although recently, those roles seemed to have reversed. In High School, Zach started a band and put some jamz up on Myspace. The songs caught the attention of brother and sister team / owners of the independent, influential, trend-setting, and world-renowned label Drive-Thru Records, Stefanie Reines & Richard Reines. Zach convinced Cam to learn to play bass, and their friend Michael Martinez emailed the band asking if they needed a drummer…they did! The band now complete, the two teams joined forces – band and management – and set out to change the world and/or have some fun and make music.
The legendary story continues with the guys handing out flyers at the premiere for the JoBro 3D movie and getting “discovered” by a casting agent at Disney. She told the program director at Radio Disney about the band, and they were added last minute to the first-ever “Next Big Thing” contest. They lost. Boo. They wound up getting signed to Hollywood Records. Yay!
And so began the “Hollywood Years.” Singles, videos, photo shoots, ep, album, extended ep, youtube videos, good stuff, bad stuff, fun stuff, not so fun stuff, cool people, not so cool people, ups, downs, highs, lows…whew! The outcome: an amazing fanbase who we love & cherish, some lifelong friends, and an album that we are still very proud of (All The Way) with the exception of a certain song (hint: it includes an ellipsis in the title).
Welcome to present day A-Dub. The songs we’re writing now we are more proud of than anything we’ve ever written. This August we launched a Kickstarter and reached our funding goal in 24 hours! With the support of our fans, we are able to begin recording our third full-length record Dec 10 in Nashville with Producer Jason Lehning. A handful of these new songs will be debuted on our Headlining Tour, which starts in Anaheim, CA at the House of Blues on January 19, 2013. Joining us on tour is Cute Is What We Aim For and Tiffany Alvord.
Life is short and the last thing we want to do is waste your time. By now, you already know the myriad feats Cute Is What We Aim For have accomplished since forming in 2005. The band’s 2006 debut The Same Old Blood Rush With A New Touch spent countless months on the Billboard Top 200 Charts; the group successfully headlined Alternative Press’ Bands You Need To Know tour (and graced the cover of the magazine) and Cute Is What We Aim For were named one of Rolling Stones’ 10 Artists To Watch—all while the group were still teenagers living in the dreary blue-collar town of Buffalo, New York.
