All Time Low is an American pop punk band from Baltimore, Maryland, formed in 2003. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Alex Gaskarth, guitarist Jack Barakat, bassist Zack Merrick, and drummer Rian Dawson. The name All Time Low is taken from lyrics in the song “Head on Collision” by New Found Glory.
Forming whilst in high school, All Time Low started out covering pop punk bands such as Green Day and Blink-182. They signed their first record deal with Emerald Moon Records in 2004 and released their first EP, titled The Three Words to Remember in Dealing with the End. Their first studio album was released in 2005, titled The Party Scene. Before graduating high school in 2006, All Time Low signed a record deal with Hopeless Records. They then re-recorded songs from their debut album and included two new songs for their EP Put Up or Shut Up. The EP entered both the Top Independent Albums and Top Heatseekers charts, illustrating their growing popularity.
