After rocking a sold out show at the House of Blues earlier this month, All Time Low have revealed plans for a return visit to Boston this summer. As part of their “Gimme Summer Ya Love” tour, the band will play Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion on Sunday, July 31. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $20 to $30, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. The Starting Line and Mayday Parade will open the show.

The Baltimore-based punk pop group’s summer tour is in support of their forthcoming album, Dirty Work. The album, their fourth studio effort and first since 2009’s Nothing Personal, is scheduled for a June 7 release through Interscope Records. The band worked with a handful of acclaimed producers on the album, including Mike Green (Paramore, Boys Like Girls), Matt Squire (Panic at the Disco, Taking Back Sunday) and Butch Walker (Pink, Dashboard Confessional).

“In a lot of ways, this is the perfect summer record,” declared drummer Rian Dawson in a press release. “The songs are really loud and will get you to roll the windows down. It’s just a fun record all around.”

Last month, the band debuted Dirty Works lead single, “I Feel Like Dancin'”, which was co-written by Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo. A music video fro the single is expected to be released in June, just before the album release.

“I just threw it out there that we wanted to work with him as a shot in the dark,” explained lead vocalist Alex Gaskarth of the experience. “But he was really into the idea and it was such a rad experience. I went to his house, chilled on the floor, and we talked about our favorite bands. I think we knocked that song out in an hour.”

In a recent interview with MTV News, Gaskarth explained how Dirty Work represents a shift in the band’s sound. “You have these songs about the good times, and then there are also these songs about, ‘Wow, because of these good times, everything else is completely burning,'” he said. “And ‘dirty work’ was the first set of words that came to mind to define what I had been doing for the past two years.”

Following their Boston gig, All Time Low will head north for a show at New Hampshire’s Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom on Monday, August 1. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $23.
