All Time Low        

Pop Punk Band; "Dear Maria, Count Me In" and "Damned If I Do Ya (Damned If I Don't)"

The pop punk band All Time Low formed in Maryland in 2003. Lead vocalist Alex Gaskarth and guitarist Jack Barakat put the group together and recruited drummer Rian Dawson and bassist Zack Merrick. The band's name came from a line in the song "Head On Collision" by the band New Found Glory. Early on All Time Low mostly performed covers of songs by bands Green Day, Blink-182 and New Found Glory.

All Time Low's first recording contract came with indie label Emerald Moon in 2004. Their first release was an EP titled The Three Words to Remember in Dealing with the End. A full-length album The Party Scene followed in 2005. It was produced by Paul Leavitt.

Just months before band members graduated from high school, All Time Low signed to national indie label Hopeless Records in 2006. Their first release was an EP titled Put Up or Shut Up, which included mostly re-recorded versions of songs from their Emerald Moon album. With the release of the album So Wrong, It's Right in 2007 and extensive touring, All Time Low began rising in the ranks of national pop punk bands. The group received strong support from MTV and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live in the spring of 2008.

All Time Low have made their name largely through extensive touring and their fun, energetic performance style. In 2007 All Time Low joined the annual Vans Warped Tour. In 2008 they toured with bands such as Cobra Starship and Mayday Parade. All Time Low joined the Vans Warped Tour again in 2008. The group joined Fall Out Boy as an opening act on the 2009 The Believers Never Die Part Deux tour. All Time Low performed in the Vans Warped Tour again in 2009.

All Time Low first broke into national charts when the EP Put Up or Shut Up broke into the Indie top 20 in 2006. The following album So Wrong, It's Right broke into the top 100 of the overall album chart in 2007. It included "Dear Maria, Count Me In," the band's first song to reach the pop singles chart. The band has released two singles from the upcoming album Nothing Personal. The second "Damned If I Do Ya (Damned If I Don't)" is All Time Low's first single to hit the Billboard Hot 100.

The band released their first live album, Straight to DVD, in 2010. While recording a fourth album, the group contributed the song "Painting Flowers" to the Almost Alice soundtrack. Dirty Work became the band's fourth album, released in 2011 as the band's major label Interscope debut. It reached No. 6 on the Billboard 200 with 45,000 first week sales. Dirty Work has sold 107,000 copies in the US as of October 2012 and was eventually certified Silver by the BPI in the UK for 60,000 shipments. Its lead single "I Feel Like Dancin'" reached No. 113 in the US. The group again toured all year long in support of it.

In May 2012, All Time Low announced their departure from Interscope, and put up "The Reckless and the Brave" on their website for a free download. The group's fifth studio album, titled Don't Panic, was released on October 9 through Hopeless Records, as is similarly supported with year-round tours.
