Herbert played on all nine albums in the band’s discography and was especially proud of the new album, Victim of the New Disease, which is out today, via Eleven Seven Music.The album is both a tour de force and a testament to Herbert’s legacy.
All That Remains — PhilipLabonte [lead vocals], Mike Martin [guitar], Jason Costa [drums], and Aaron Patrick[bass, backing vocals] — plan to further honour the passion that Herbert felt for both the album and the band by continuing on.
The band will embark on the 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. All current tour dates are below, with more touring plans in North America being announced soon.
“Losing Oli has been a tremendous blow to the core of ATR”, says vocalist Phil 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”.
Prior to the album’s release, the band shared an epic trifecta of new tracks ‘Fuck Love’, ‘Wasteland’ and ‘Everything’s Wrong’. The songs were met with near-universal acclaim and genuine excitement from the rock and metal communities.
Critical gatekeepers like MetalSucks enthused that ‘Fuck Love’ was "easily the heaviest thing they've released in years (maybe ever??)", while Loudwire proclaimed that the track is a "straight-forward brutalizer centered around a beefy pendular rhythm, making it an instant pit-starter when it eventually sees the stage". Anti-Hero weighed in, calling the tracks “pit perfect”.
Labonte offered this insight into the album, saying, "We decided to throw a curveball… and do the heaviest record since For We Are Many in 2010! It was the perfect way to follow-up Madness, where we did some different styles and songs and even covered a country song. People might've expected something more experimental, but throwing curveballs is what we do".
Victim of the New Disease also features a vocal cameo from Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop on ‘Just Tell Me Something’.
In other All That Remains news, the band is pleased to announce that the single ‘Two Weeks’ from the band’s album Overcome has been RIAA Certified Gold.
