Dirty Work is the fourth studio album by American rock band All Time Low. Following the success of Nothing Personal, the band signed to major label Interscope Records in late 2009. After spending sometime writing material in Los Angeles, the band started recording with Mike Green in March 2010. Over the following months the band recorded songs with John Fields, Butch Walker, Matt Squire, David Kahne and U4L. In between sessions, the band embarked on the Bamboozle Roadshow tour. Neal Avron mixed the majority of the album's recordings while Green, Mark Trombino and Chris Lord-Alge each mixed a song. Vocalist/guitarist Alex Gaskarth co-write the album's songs with a variety of people, including those who produced a few of the songs. While recording, the album was planned for release in 2010. It was delayed to January 2011, and then to spring. Further recording sessions then took place in November 2010, as well as in January 2011.
Following these extra sessions, the album was then slated for release in March 2011. Between March and May, the band went on tours of the UK and the US. While on the tour, "I Feel Like Dancin'" was released as a single, and the album was reportedly going to be released in June. Dirty Work was eventually released on June 7. In July, the band appeared at the Sonisphere and Oxegen UK festivals and embarked on a North America tour, which lasted into August. During the tour, "Forget About It" was released as a single. The band went on a US tour in October and November, as well as appearing on Conan. After the tour's conclusion, music videos were released for "Time-Bomb" and "Merry Christmas, Kiss My Ass" in November and December, respectively. "Time-Bomb" was released as a single in January 2012, before the band went on a UK tour, which ran into February. A Canadian tour followed shortly afterwards and "Guts" was released as a single.
Dirty Work received a mixed-to-positive reception from critics. It was projected to sell 50–55,000 copies in its first week and chart within the top 10 of the Billboard 200, before eventually selling 43,000 copies and reaching number six. The album charted highly on a number of Billboard charts, even reaching number one on both the Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. It also charted at various positions in Australia, Canada, UK, Ireland, Japan, the Netherlands and Belgium. "I Feel Like Dancin'" and "Time-Bomb" both reached the top 40 on several Billboard charts.
