The statement was posted on the band's socials.



All Time Low
have released a statement following online allegations of misconduct against members of the band. 

You can read it in full below:

"The allegations being brought against us are absolutely and unequivocally false. When a TikTok video gained traction a few weeks ago alluding to inappropriate behaviour within our camp, we chose not to respond because of the glaring inconsistencies in the story, and the apparent reluctance to mention us by name. We felt that a response would have elevated and escalated an outright lie, and in doing so, robbed actual victims of abuse of their very real and very important collective voice. We believe victims. We stand with victims. We have only ever wanted to cultivate and nurture a culture around our shows and band that is welcoming, healthy and safe.

It is with that in mind that we have to state with outright certainty, that what is being said about us is completely and utterly false. We are investigating further the source of these false accusations, and we will be seeking legal recourse as we take these allegations very seriously. With that in mind, we want to say again, we stand with victims and always wish to amplify the voices and statures of those who have suffered abuse and trauma. But we cannot and will not fuel or amplify lies that only cloud and distort the true stories of those who need to be heard and represented.

We appreciate, and truly never take for granted the platform that you have granted us by supporting our band and us as individuals over the years. We cannot overstate how much we respect and cherish the sanctity of this fanbase and the connections we’ve made with you through the years. With every year that goes by, every show we play, every individual we meet along the way, we are so thankful for the growth that stems from this connection. We have only ever sought positivity and wellness for those who have ever crossed our path. Throughout our nearly two-decade spanning career, we are so fortunate to learn and grow alongside all of you. We will continue to listen and to do everything in our power to nurture and support a healthy and safe environment around All Time Low. It is difficult and disheartening to have to make this statement knowing that the allegations against our camp are completely unfounded and false, but at this point, it is of the upmost importance to us that you know we hear you, we stand with victims, and we stand collectively for truth.

Sincerely and with love,

Alex, Jack, Rian & Zack"

 


Guitarist Jack Barakat also quote tweeted the statement and added:

"While the four of us wrote this statement together, I feel the need to personally refute the claims being made against me and us, as they are 100% false."
