All The Rest were firing up the media, Hype Machine #1s, and Spotify playlists with their music in 2019. You could say they were the promising newcomers who were shooting up the charts and media exponentially. Until the pandemic happened and shit went down. The band – like many of us – had a rough year of dealing with personal crisis, changes, uncertainty, and on top of that, a fucking global pandemic. They even announced an indefinite hiatus last summer. But this year, they’re back in full force with newfound creativity. Their comeback single “Heat Sweat” is a blood-pumping, alternative pop treat that captures the pains of being stuck in the friendzone. It’s exhilarating and has that All The Rest magical spark that makes us wanna sing along and dance even though we may not have memorized the lyrics:
Regarding their latest release, the band shared: “We are incredibly excited to release ‘Heat Sweat’ as our first single in over a year. As for most, 2020 brought it’s fair share of challenges for us as both individuals and a band. Last summer we announced All The Rest would be on an indefinite hiatus. Covid alone may have been enough to kill off a lot of our pier’s bands, but for us it went a little bit deeper than music. None of us were in a great place and there was a lot of internal resentment. Somewhere along the way we let our passions undermine our personal relationships. Then life got crazy. From rehab and recovery, to major breakups and family crises. It was a hell of a year but it was a time we desperately needed to focus on ourselves. Flash forward to 2021, all in a much better place, but still asking ourselves ‘Are we really done? Is that all we have to say?’ For some of us, sadly, its true, but All The Rest still has music to write and a story to tell. We’ve always poured our hearts into our music and we believe this new song is nothing short of that. ‘Heat Sweat’ is a song for anyone who’s ever been stuck in the friend zone. We hope you love it”
The track is from their upcoming self-titled EP, which will be out later this year.
