Get Wired! with Arms Length Away

Arms Length Away is an up and coming band based out of Apex NC. Pulling from musical influences like Blink 182 and The Starting Line, their infectious pop-punk sound immediately grabs your attention and refuses to let go. I dare you to try and get “Call Me Superstitious” out of your head, ITS JUST NOT POSSIBLE! I have heard hundreds of thousands of new bands trying to push their music at everyone possible, but almost never does a band like Arms Length Away show up, with music that is too good to believe. With plans to record their sophomore EP in Baltimore with Paul Leavitt who has produced such mega bands as Senses Fail, you can expect big things to come from ALA.  If I were to bet on a single band that will reach All Time Low status in the next five years, I would without a doubt have to say ALA! Check out our band interview below, and be sure to download a TOTALLY FREE copy of their “Just My Luck” EP here, you would be absolutely stupid not to!
