The official video for ‘Madness’, the title track of the eighth studio album from Massachusetts metallers All That Remains, can be seen below. The disc will be released on April 28 via Razor & Tie in the U.S. and Eleven Seven Music in Europe.

“Madness” was recorded at West Valley Studios in Woodland Hills, California with producer Howard Benson, who has previously worked with such acts as Motörhead, Papa Roach, Three Days Grace, Flyleaf, P.O.D. and Halestorm.

All That Remains singer Phil Labonte told Revolver magazine about the band’s approach on the new disc: “We wanted to mix it up a little bit and write from a vocal perspective this time. So I went to L.A. and came up with vocal ideas and melodies and then sent those chord progressions back to Oli and he wrote riffs in response to that. [Doing it this way] turned the record into a vocal album as opposed to a guitar album. And that affected some things. Like, there might be less intricacy in the riffs because they were written in response to my voice.”

Labonte added that the majority of the newAll That Remains songs feature “significant programming and electronic sounds. And that’s something we wanted to have flowing through the entire record. So you’re gonna hear that kind of influence on most of the tracks.”

Asked by Ryan Daniels of of Rock 105.5, Carolina’s Pure Rock radio station, about the “sellout” accusations that have been leveled at All That Remains for the more radio-friendly sound of the album’s first single, “Madness”, Labonte said: “If you’re doing something — making music — and specifically catering to an audience that you have catered to or that has found something to attach to, is it a sellout to try and change and do something different? Or is it a sellout to be, like, ‘Okay, this is the safe play where I know I can make my money?’ It’s, like, I know I that I can cater to this narrow group of people, and if we don’t stray, these people will keep buying our records, these people will keep coming to our shows. Is it a sellout to be, like, ‘I’m gonna try something different?'”

He continued: “People have been saying ‘sellout’ about us since 2006, since we put out ‘The Fall Of Ideals’. We started doing clean choruses, and people were, like, ‘Oh, sellout!’ And it’s, like, gimme a fucking break. We’ve always tried to push [the envelope] and change.”
