You could call it a homecoming of sorts. Wilkes-Barre, PA’s favorite sons, Breaking Benjamin, armed with a brand new record in stores, Dark Before Dawn—their first in 6 years—celebrated its arrival by paying a visit to Wilkes-Barre’s Gallery of Sound record store for an informal fan meet and greet last weekend.

Over 400 strong lined the building on a sunny summer Saturday and had almost anything and everything signed by the band.

TVD Live Shots: All Time Low in-store at Gallery of Sound, 4/4

All Time Low released their sixth full-length album, Future Hearts on April 7th, debuting at number two in the USA and number one in the UK.

This is the first time the pop-punk band have achieved this kind of chart success. “This is a huge surprise! We didn’t expect this kind of reaction to the album and we couldn’t be happier. After so many years together, we never want to let our fans down, and this feels like a massive achievement on their part as much as ours.”

In preparation for the upcoming release, the band embarked on a mini record store tour, performing new songs and autographing items for fans. This six-city stop at local indie records stores was sold out, giving true hardcore fans an intimate experience with the band.

On April 4th, the band made a stop at record store Gallery of Sound in Wilkes Barre, PA, performing a short, sold out set in front of 300 lucky fans. Photographer Doug Seymour was there to capture moments both on and off stage.

All Time Low will embark on their Future Hearts Tour starting April 15th in Lowell, MA.
