In an interview with Billboard, All Time Low‘s Alex Gaskarth (vocalist/guitarist) talked about President Trump’s Immigration Ban – relating excerpts can be read below.
“All four of us were in different places, texting back and forth going, ‘Manm, how unreal is this? This is scary and crazy”
“A lot of us did a lot of reading and brushing up, which is important to do at times like this. I think it’s really important when these certain situations come up in life and in the world, it’s good to ty to educate yourself to know what exactly what’s going on.”
“All four of us felt like in general it’s wrong. It’s wrong to make sweeping judgements on large groups of people. It’s just wrong, in this case it’s blatantly racist and xenophobic.”
ICYDK: Two members of All Time Low were born outside of the United States – Jack Barakat’s parents still live in the Middle East.
The band recently launched a limited edition t-shirt with all sales being donated to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
