Everyone has a dirty little secret. If yours is that you privately enjoy the pop alternative rock stylings of The All-American Rejects, you’re in luck.
The group is set to play Track 29 on Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 8 p.m. as part of the Shaking Off the Rust tour, which began in California this January.
Unlike artists who release albums in quick succession, The All-American Rejects have made a career of long pauses in between albums. Their debut record earned radio play with the single “Swing, Swing” in 2003.
Their sophomore effort followed in 2005 and helped the group become a recognizable mainstream music name with the singles “It Ends Tonight,” “Dirty Little Secret” and “Move Along,” all of which rose to the top 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
It was another three years until the All-American Rejects released the album that would launch them into international fame: “Gives You Hell,” the noisy track designed to wake the neighbors, reached No. 4 in the U.S. and topped charts in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Ireland and Slovakia.
The band’s current tour-“Kids in the Street”-took another four years to materialize, hitting iTunes in March 2012.
Despite the waiting periods fans have had to endure, The All-American Rejects have earned their place in music history. With more than 10 million albums sold worldwide, the band was listed No. 73 on the Billboard Hot 100 Artists of the 2000s.
The show at Track 29 is open to all ages. Tickets are now available for $20. Day-of tickets will be $22.
