All American Rejects Unveil Gritty Short Film for ‘Sweat’

"The film is a story about this functioning identity crisis and expectations on how we’re supposed to be in a public place."

All American Rejects have paired two new songs “Sweat” and “Close Your Eyes” for an epic 11-minute video starring frontman Tyson Ritter.

The short film finds Ritter battling with his own identity, which takes the form of businessman by day and prostitute by night. “The film is a story about this functioning identity crisis and expectations on how we’re supposed to be in a public place,” reflects Ritter.

Both songs are available now as a 2-track EP, titled SWEAT.
