Allstar Weekend is a pop band based in Poway, California. The band gained its popularity from the Disney Channel television network. The band originally consisted of lead singer Zachary Porter, bassist Cameron Quiseng, guitarist Nathan Darmody, and drummer Michael Martinez. As of September 17, 2011, Darmody is no longer in the band.
Their debut album Suddenly Yours was released in October 2010 and peaked at number 197 on the Billboard 200. In September 2011, Zach, Cameron, and Michael released their second studio album entitled All The Way. All The Way peaked at 49 on the Billboard 200, a considerable improvement from their first album. The band's third studio album is expected to be released in February 2013. On May 20, 2011, they announced their new album, All the Way, would be released on July 19, but it was moved to September 27, 2011. On July 25, 2011, they announced that their second single from All the Way would be "Blame It on September" and it will be released on August 16, 2011. With a successful first week, All the Way debuted at number 49 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. It was announced on June 20, 2011, via the band's Facebook, that Darmody would not be touring with the band on their tour with Selena Gomez & The Scene, due to personal issues. On July 13, Allstar Weekend stated that a guitarist named Eric Nicolau would be filling in for Nathan Darmody on their tour with Selena Gomez & the Scene.
On September 17, 2011, it was announced via TwitLonger that Darmody had left the band. The band announced that they would not release the details of Darmody's departure in a statement made to their fans. In the same statement, they also announced that they would be beginning their search for the next permanent member of Allstar Weekend, and currently have a live memeber taking place. Since leaving the band, Darmody has continued his career as a solo artist under the title of IWXO (which stands for "I'm With Love"). The band guest starred on Sonny with a Chance in the episode "A So Random Halloween Special" to perform "Come Down with Love" which is also featured on the show's soundtrack. They have appeared on Lopez Tonight and Rachel Ray, also performing "Come Down with Love". On February 26, 2012, they were featured on MTV's 10 on Top. They were the "One to Watch". They talked about their days when they were a garage band compared to their lives now and how they're living the dream.
They also talked about their pre-show rituals. On March 19, 2011, they were again in 10 on Top, ranking number 4 due to their new music video "Not Your Birthday". The song is featured in Disney's feature film Prom. They have also been on MTV's The Seven twice. The second time was on May 13, 2011, and they ranked in at number two. The very first time they performed "Not Your Birthday" live on television was on MuchMusic's New.Music.Live. in Toronto, Canada. They again performed it on Live with Regis and Kelly on May 30, 2011.
