Shake off the rust!
All-American Rejects will kick off 2012 with the release of "Beekeeper's Daughter" — the multi-platinum rock band's first single since "Gives You Hell" became the No. 1 most-played song of 2009 at Top 40 radio. Written by Rejects' lead singer, lyricist, and bassist Tyson Ritter and guitarist Nick Wheeler, the potent pop-rock "Beekeeper's Daughter," available digitally on Jan. 24, captures a tumultuous time while Ritter was living in Los Angeles after wrapping two years of touring behind the band's 2008 album When the World Comes Down.
"'Beekeeper's Daughter' is a story about a guy who thinks he can get away with anything and always have a girl there waiting for him," Ritter says. "He never backs down from that opinion. At the end of it, he's even stronger and more snide and thinks he's invincible no matter what. He's an asshole, but at that point in my life, I was kind of an asshole. As we were making Kids in the Street, I went from that to being a completely humbled guy who's looking at his reflection saying, ‘Wow, what have I done?' It may make me not seem very likeable, but it was important that I be truthful and really open up on this album about what I've been through.'"
