OUR ALBUM NEOTHEATER:
🌻 by Post Malone and Swae Lee
Last night someone came up to us in the meet and greet and showed us something we tweeted 3 years ago: “We want to make big beautiful things.” Well 3 years have passed, and we haven’t changed a bit. 📷 @austinroa
It’s a great day when your dog finally gets her cone off...
It may be time to start writing songs again 😎 this pic is unrelated, just wanted to show off that I still play with my fidget spinner

There are very few moments in life like this. For our entire career, all we heard from our Dad was “you’ll know you made it when you SELL OUT RED ROCKS.” I think there are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality. And then there are those who turn one into the other.
THE ENTERTAINMENT’S HERE AT RED ROCKS 🌵
Hey panini, don’t you be a meanie
Love you guys
A lot of anxiety comes with trying to get people’s attention. It’s why so many celebrities are fucked up. In this world where SO many musicians are competing for audience’s attention, it tends to be that the loudest and grossest and most controversial voices get the most followers and the most streams. So we decided, about 3 years ago, that would never be AJR’s goal. Our goal is to create great art, that confuses and stretches people’s minds. That gets you through shitty times and lets you escape the world for little moments. And I can tell you honestly, it’s a MUCH HAPPIER EXISTENCE. To any smaller musicians out there, I hope you can feel what we’re feeling: don’t care about being LOUD or FAMOUS. Those things will be forgotten by next year, I promise you.
Some strange unspoken magic clicked on stage last night. The first show of the Neotheater World Tour. Kinda felt like the first show we’ve ever played in our life. Cannot wait to share this with you. 📹 @austinroa
“Ryan, just hop the fence. It’ll be easy”
A dad showed up in the sickest homemade t-shirt tonight.
REHEARSALS HAVE BEGUN. Damn it, so tempted to post a teaser of one of the cool crazy things in the show... but I’ll refrain. You gotta see it in person.
KARMA IN HAWAII 🌺
Last vacation before the rehearsals begin, who’s excited
Every week we get ticket counts for this tour, and every week we smile a little bigger. Ready to welcome so many people to the Neotheater. Just added a Moscow date!
A great song has ups and downs. A great song makes you smile, then wonder why on earth you smiled, then smile again for doubting your smile in the first place. A great song kicks your butt. Hope any budding/future songwriters can relate : ) 📷 @estersegrettophotography
After filming content all day in Cincinnati yesterday, our flight got canceled, so we jumped on a private plane, slept 3 hours to make it just in time. 😅 Dear Winter on @goodmorningamerica
People want shirts with the band name on it.
It’s been a long time since we’ve been nervous for a show. But being backstage looking out at 30,000 people, our whole team kind of freaked out haha. But damn it LOLLA, that was possibly the most fun we’ve ever had playing a show. THANK YOU. 🎥 @austinroa
As you know, we like to constantly make tweaks and changes to make the show as good as it can be. Made a big change for Lollapalooza today.
HOW WE MADE “BIRTHDAY PARTY”. Which song do you want us to do next?
This is how open I am to being the next feature they decide to add to Old Town Road
Please prepare yourself for something very weird. Something that you’re gonna tell your friends “I can’t really describe it, you had to be there.” New Chicago and 2nd Philly date are now on sale!
‘Wow, I’m Not Crazy’ in Moscow
Can’t believe how cool this job is. We can travel halfway across the world and hear our songs sung back to us twice as loud. Thank you Moscow 🎻
HOW WE MADE: NEXT UP FOREVER
She got so big while we were away 😳
But I gotta go so much bigger, so they can never shut me down. 📷 @rollingstone
Biggest crowd we’ve ever played for. They told us it was something like 30,000 people that came to watch us. BONNAROO you were spectacular. 🎥 @austinroa
2 years since the album that put us on the map. Haven’t stopped following the click since.
4th times the charm.
About a month ago, we put out an album called Neotheater. It was about a fictional magical world we went into in our minds to escape the pressures of growing up. I hope it made you think, but I really hope it made you smile.
Can’t believe these venues you guys are allowing us to play. Radio City Music Hall, Red Rocks. We’re doing a bunch of arenas on this tour. Arenas. This thing is becoming the BIGGEST best kept secret.
THANK YOU BOTTLEROCK. What a way to start off festival season 🌤
Woah, Taylor Swift is an AJR fan, this is pretty cool 👀 Thanks @taylorswift , glad you like the 100 Bad Days lyrics so much!
To anyone that writes to us saying stuff like “stick to music, stay out of politics”... we write our truth. It would be untruthful to put on blinders and pretend we don’t know what’s going on in the world, just so we can keep more fans. That’s lame. We’re always gonna write our truth.
London wow. Went across the pond and found something real special
HOW WE MADE: DON’T THROW OUT MY LEGOS
