All People Take “Moonsteps” with Punktastic

All People Due Out May 20th on Community Records

On Tour Now!

All People are excited to share “Moonsteps,” the latest DanielD-Ray” Ray led single from the band’s upcoming self-titled album. Due out on May 20th via Community Records, the New Orleans quartet premiered the single with Punktastic, offering a different look at the band’s expansive sound, a soaring mix of spaced out dream pop and punk. According to D-Ray, the song is about watching the TV show Friends and learning life lessons from his parents… standard punk stuff really.


All People’s initial concept was “All People Translate Pure Unfiltered Emotion”. The phrase described what the band would be for the members: a conduit for emotion and feeling. It’s a kind of mantra or spiritual belief that also touches on the idea that they wholeheartedly believe there is a pure and common energy connecting all of humanity. Music is All People’s method of self expression within this common energy, but each person has their unique way of expressing what’s in their hearts.

All People is the band’s third album and the most accurate representation of that concept. The record is a ‘soundtrack to youthful daydreams with fits of ecstasy and a preoccupation with the crushing drama of the small stuff’ — 27 minutes of dark and dreamy post-punk inspired by synth-driven bands of the ’80s and guitar-driven bands of the early ’90s and bound by introspective lyrics. Themes touch on mental illness and anxiety and incidents of death and suicide we experienced among our loved ones — all woven into their perception of human nature. These songs help the band stay positive and not succumb to depression. There is light at both ends of the tunnel.

All People is out Friday, May 20, 2016 on Community Records. The band and DIY label founded by All People’s own Daniel Ray and Greg Rodrigue are based in New Orleans, Louisiana.

“This music creates an introspective feeling both sonically and lyrically to explore the frustration that comes from having a lack of control.” – Stereogum

“The songs could easily represent teenage punk sensibilities, ennui and self deprecation, but the band mines darker experiences for the material on their latest album”Culture Collide
