On the twelfthÂ day of Christmas, idobi gave to me All Time at Six.
Â Dear All Time Low and You Me At Six,
Hey guys. Long time fan, first time letter-writer.
I want to start off with saying youâ€™re all amazing. No, seriously. Iâ€™ve listened to both of your bands for years, have seen you multiple times, and generally just flail around when people mention any of you. Itâ€™s been an honor being your fan, and I look forward to many more years of screaming along at your shows.
However, I do have one tiny request for you, my Christmas wish for this year: Can you please collaborate on something?
Look, I know youâ€™ve been on the same tours before. But Iâ€™m trying to forgive and forget that both times you toured together, you skipped Canada. Iâ€™m not sure why. We have poutine, for crying out loud! Do you know how much Iâ€™d pay to see a special episode of Max and Mattâ€™s Munchies (with special guest Jack Barakat) as they try Smokeâ€™s Poutinerie? A lot. Iâ€™d pay a lot. Plus, we have a handful of Nandoâ€™s locations, if any of you British boys are feeling homesick.
But I know that touring can be expensive and whatever, so if you canâ€™t make it to Canada, thatâ€™s fine–you win some, you lose some, I guess. What you can do instead is the thing that you all do best: make beautiful music. Together, obviously. Remember how much fun it was to make a video for â€œA Love Like Warâ€ with Vic Fuentes, or â€œBite My Tongueâ€ with Oli Sykes? And Alex, remember how fangirls-and-boys the world over screamed when you joined YMAS on stage for â€œFresh Start Feverâ€ at Reading in 2014? I canâ€™t be the only one who would cry into their breakfast if you recorded a collab like that.
All Iâ€™m saying is that you both already have songs with the word â€œrecklessâ€ in it, so you should be brave enough to put it together as a party song or a medley or something? Make this foolâ€™s holiday perfect with a collaboration. Iâ€™ll let you decide all the details.
