All That Remains addresses future of band

Friday, November 9, 2018 8:54 AM PT / 6,867 views

Official press release: Last month, All That Remains suffered a tragic and incredibly painful loss when their globally renowned, highly respected, and immeasurably talented lead guitarist and founding member Oli Herbert, who played on all nine albums in the band's discography, unexpectedly passed away. Herbert was especially proud of the band's new album, Victim of the New Disease, which arrived in stores and at digital service providers today, November 9, via Razor & Tie. The album is both a tour de force and a testament to Herbert's legacy. All That Remains — Philip Labonte [lead vocals], Mike Martin [guitar], Jason Costa [drums], and Aaron Patrick [bass, backing vocals] — plan to further honor the passion that Herbert felt for both the album and the band by continuing on. The band will embark on its previously scheduled European tour with Sevendust this December. Guitar virtuoso and YouTube personality Jason Richardson (All Shall Perish, Chelsea Grin, Born of Osiris) has come on board and will fill in on the upcoming trek. "Losing Oli has been a tremendous blow to the core of ATR," says vocalist Labonte. "But I know he wouldn't want anything other than for us to continue. He loved this record so much — it's some of our best work. We look forward to sharing the music with everyone — seeing our fans from the stage. From where Oli loved most. It'll be cathartic. We'll need it to be."

"We didn't drown in a pond. We know how to swim. Why should we quit and suffer?"

La Bonte should play nothing but Shadows Fall covers from when he was a piece of previously written band-Somber Eyes To The Sky:Songs

^ above commenter is Phil labonte hyping up and throwing shade to brian friar. Obviously fans of Shadows Fall would want to a "of One blood" 18th year 20th anniv vs that. Or they could do a double thing and make both super alpha metalcore giants sing their songs with 2 different bands playing shadows falls songs at once.

Tim Lambesis is a very multi-talented individual... a philanthropist, singer, vocalist, wife killer, guitarist, drummer, innovative inventor of downward fist punch manoeuvre's... etc... should have offered him the job before getting a talentless hack
