All Time Low have announced a UK tour for early next year.

The US pop punk band will play 15 dates across the UK starting in Glasgow on 14 January.

The group, who played at last weekend's Sonisphere and T in the Park festivals, will finish at London's Hammersmith Apollo.

All Time Low performed in Radio 1's Live Lounge last month on Fearne Cotton's show and also released their fourth album, Dirty Work, in June.

Speaking at Sonisphere, Essex-born lead singer Alex Gaskarth said their new tracks had been getting a good reaction at concerts.

You're always coming out of the gates really hard and trying to win everybody over and make sure everyone's having a good time

"It's been going over really well, especially over here, thanks to you guys," he said. "We've just added Forget About It to the set and that's been going over great."

The band, from Baltimore, are also playing an extensive US tour this summer before heading to Japan and Australia.

Alex Gaskarth says the band doesn't like sitting around in hotel rooms and enjoys the festival atmosphere.

"You're playing for such a dynamic crowd every day, you don't know who necessarily they're there to see," he said.

"You're always coming out of the gates really hard and trying to win everybody over and make sure everyone's having a good time."

Lead guitarist Jack Barakat added: "There seems to be a lot more nudity at the festivals.

"Then they go back to work the next day, everything's normal and they're in suits and ties."

All Time Low will be supported by US bands The Maine and We Are The In Crowd.
