Indie pop band All The Rest had became one of the most promising independent acts of the newcomers scene. With a long series of pop bangers, the project gained attention from both tastemakers and dsps. Then 2020 arrived and the band announced an indefinite hiatus.
Frontmen/singers Caleb Smith and Baylee Waller, at the beginning of 2021, realized All The Rest were still alive.
Today we’re finally able to listen to their brand-new single titled ‘Heat Sweat‘, the first song off of their upcoming self-titled sophomore EP, which will be released later this year.
Speaking about their new formation and the comeback single, they explained: “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”
