The four-piece consisting of Alex Gaskarth (vocals and rhythm guitar), Jack Barakat (lead guitar and backing vocals), Zachary Merrick (bass and backing vocals), and Rian Dawson (drums) have been rocking out since they were in high school.

Review: ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Soundtrack

By Madyson McGill Please stay and be my guest as I proudly present my review of the live action Beauty and the Beast soundtrack.
