The All-Time Low Band is recently in limelight because of facing a sexual assault allegation. Here’s everything you need to know about the band.
All Time Low is a Towson, Maryland-based American rock band that formed in 2003. Alex Gaskarth (lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist), Jack Barakat (lead guitarist), Zack Merrick (bassist/backing vocals), and Rian Dawson (drummer) make up the band.
The band drew their name from the lyrics of New Found Glory’s song “Head on Collision.” The band has done year-long tours, headlined multiple tours, and performed at major festivals such as Warped Tour, Reading & Leeds, and Soundwave.
Recently, there is s Twitter drama going on with the band after assault allegations that have lately surfaced on the internet, notably on TikTok, alleging that musician Jack Barakat sexually abused them as youngsters.
What Are All-Time Low Allegations?
People were directed to All Time Low after a girl posted a video on TikTok saying she’d been on their tour bus when she was 13, although she didn’t mention them precisely. The video has subsequently been removed from the internet.
A female complainant accused the singer of sexual assault while she was under the age of 18, saying that previous attempts to share her tale were met with “outpourings of hostility from the crowd.”
She stated that she thought there had been a shift with the #MeToo movement and that she would attempt again to share her tale. However, her story’s Twitter account has been suspended, and the tweets are no longer accessible.
The all time low allegations are so unsurprising. We need to stop expecting grown ass men who all act /make music like theyre still 17, in an industry saturated with starry eyed young fans with adults who dont give a shit about them, to not abuse minors. I’m tired of the surprise
