Jack Barakat and members of the pop-punk band All Time Low spoke out on Monday to call recent allegations of sexual abuse “absolutely and unequivocally false.”

The band denied claims of “inappropriate behavior” that surfaced on TikTok over the weekend in a joint statement signed by lead singer Alex Gaskarth, guitarist Jack Barakat, drummer Rian Dawson and bassist Zack Merrick. Despite refusing to signal out any member, Jack Barakat, 33, was reported to be the band member in question for sexual misconduct.

“We have to state with outright certainty that what is being said about us is completely and utterly false,” the band’s statement read. “We are investigating further the source of these false accusations, and will be seeking legal recourse as we take these allegations very seriously.”

The since-removed TikTok video, which reportedly featured a woman claiming that the band invited her on their tour bus when she was 13 years old, did not include any specific All Time Low members. According to USA Today, another deleted account also contained a “lengthy claim” that guitarist Jack Barakat solicited nude images, sexually assaulted, and groomed an underage fan.

All Time Low, in responding to the allegations, said that “when a TikTok video gained traction a few weeks ago alluding to inappropriate behavior within our camp, we choose not to respond because of the glaring inconsistencies in the story, and the apparent reluctance to mention us by name.”

“We have only ever wanted to cultivate and nurture a culture around our shows and band that is welcoming, healthy, and safe,” the statement read. “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.”

“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 the truth,” the band concluded.

According to USA Today, the alleged victim said that when she was invited onto the band’s tour bus at the age of 13, everyone at the time said that it was “so nice of them.”

All Time Low did not address the poster of the video specifically, or her claims of the tour bus incident, other than to deny the allegations outright.

Rolling Stone reported that the woman who laid claims of sexual misconduct with a minor against Jack Barakat said that the incidents started during their 2011 tour, and the abuse continued for five years into 2016.

The alleged victim said that she was 15 when the abusive relationship started, and that in 2016, another one of the band’s members had even witnessed her being sexually assaulted by Barakat. The last occurrence, she claimed, was when she was 21.

“I now realize that I was being manipulated by a man who groomed me during a time when I was an emotionally vulnerable child,” she wrote in a long, since-deleted Twitter thread. “If you’ve had any experience even remotely similar to what I and others have had, I encourage you to find the courage to speak about this. It’s not an easy thing to talk about, but it is a story that needs to be shared.”

The alleged victims have not commented on why the posts were deleted, or if they were taken down by the users themselves. According to TikTok and Twitter’s conduct policies, the posts should not have been removed, but neither site has commented on the posts subsequent removals.

Jack Barakat later Tweeted separately, sharing the band’s statement and writing that, “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.”
