Valiant Watches and The All-American Rejects’ lead singer Tyson Ritter launched a partnership campaign this week in support of Ritter’s charity Don’t Hate on Haiti, along with a touching video about the campaign. Twenty-five percent of proceeds from sales of Valiant’s featured BE.REAL Watch, as well as from sales using promotional code DHOH, will be donated to the organization, which is dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to remote communities in Haiti.

“I’m so fortunate to have Valiant Watches partner with me to keep up awareness for those doing without in Haiti,” said Ritter, who confirms that 100% of donated funds go directly to building clean water projects for the people of Haiti. Every $5,000 raised translates into a clean water well built in Haiti. In addition to supporting DHOH, Valiant customers who purchase the featured watch or use the promo code will be entered for a chance to win a guitar signed by The All-American Rejects.

“Valiant is honored to be partnering with Tyson Ritter to benefit Don’t Hate on Haiti,” said co-founder Tracy Franco. “Our hope is to give support to those who need it most.”

The All-American Rejects are out with the music video to their new single ‘Kids In The Street’, the second release and title track from the Stillwater, Oklahoma rock band’s fourth studio album, out now on Interscope Records.

“This song is the theme of the record. It’s this callback to a moment in your life where you were so dumb, but so smart at the same time,” Tyson Ritter said about the track he wrote with bandmate Nick Wheeler. “The candle of naivety was burning down like that, but the candle of cynicism was yet to be lit.”

The All-American Rejects New Single ‘Beekeeper’s Daughter’ Out January 24th

The All-American Rejects will kick off 2012 with the release of ‘Beekeeper’s Daughter’ – the band’s first single since ‘Gives You Hell’ became the No. 1 most-played song of 2009 at Top 40 radio. Written by Rejects’ lead singer, lyricist, and bassist Tyson Ritter and guitarist Nick Wheeler, the track, available digitally on January 24th, captures a tumultuous time while Ritter was living in Los Angeles after wrapping two years of touring behind the band’s 2008 album ‘When The World Comes Down’.

“‘Beekeeper’s Daughter’ is a story about a guy who thinks he can get away with anything and always have a girl there waiting for him,” Ritter said. “He never backs down from that opinion. At the end of it, he’s even stronger and more snide and thinks he’s invincible no matter what. He’s an a-hole, but at that point in my life, I was kind of an a-hole. As we were making ‘Kids in the Street’, I went from that to being a completely humbled guy who’s looking at his reflection saying, ‘Wow, what have I done?’ It may make me not seem very likeable, but it was important that I be truthful and really open up on this album about what I’ve been through.'”

‘Beekeeper’s Daughter’, along with the rest of the tracks on ‘Kids In The Street’, was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Greg Wells, who is known for his work with Adele, Katy Perry, and OneRepublic, among many others. “Greg was the first producer we’ve worked with who really spoke my language, which translated into the sound of the album,” Ritter explained. “If you really want to know what ‘Kids In The Street’ sounds like, it sounds like The All-American Rejects finally got their sh** together and wrote a record that was going to keep them around.”
