    Matt and Eric are BFFs, and 98% of their friendship is based on All Time Low songs. That is not meant to be a joke but it does kind of sound like one.

    Matt lives in Austin, Texas and works as a market research analyst, which is exactly as exciting as it sounds. He is a self-proclaimed musicphile and aspires to one day write, create, and produce his own music, just like Owl City but not horrible. He enjoys guitar and bass, University of Texas sports, and medium-length walks on the beach. Also Twitter. Perfect mixtape: Brand New, Jay-Z, Led Zeppelin, Old Crow Medicine Show, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Naked and Famous, Reckless Kelly, and anything with Jack White. He is not huge on Vampire Weekend but vigorously defends the use of the Oxford comma.

    Eric is back home in Austin, Texas, after a brief period of living in Virginia to find himself, and also to have a job. He is a nocturnal copy editor and page designer at the Austin American-Statesman and an aspiring pop culture essayist, if he plays his cards right. He has always wanted to front a pan-genre dance-punk band but has no musical talent to speak of, except the ability to play the French horn. He also tweets on the reg. Perfect mixtape: Relient K, Kanye West, Vampire Weekend, Robyn, Death Cab for Cutie, Owen, the Smiths, the Avett Brothers, Fleetwood Mac and Bing Crosby.
