‘Wasteland’, a brand new song from Massachusetts metallers All That Remains, can be streamed below. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming ninth full-length album, “Victim Of The New Disease”, which will be released on November 9. The disc was produced by The Acacia Strain guitarist Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz. The cover artwork for the follow-up to last year’s “Madness” can be seen below.

“This disc is everything All That Remains is,” said singer Philip Labonte. “When it’s heavy, it’s really heavy. When it’s not, it’s tender and emotive. But when it’s not emotive, it’s heavy as hell.”

All That Remains has already performed ‘Wasteland’ and another new song, ‘Fuck Love’, at some of the band’s recent live shows. Continue reading »

Fans of Alter Bridge will be happy to hear that the group has announced a new tour! The band will be gigging through America this November and December, as they hit up some great venues across the country. Their trek will also feature All That Remains, who will bring a good mix of straight metal to things on the upcoming tour.

Alter Bridge’s live show has been making some waves as of late. Recently the group released their new “Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities” collection, showcasing a recent performance at the legendary London venue. The 19-song set demonstrated the intensity and excitement the guys bring to each live performance, and why they’ve been such an enduring act after all these years.

All That Remains have been keeping active these past couple of months as well. Back in August, they released their cover for Garth Brooks’ ‘The Thunder Rolls.’ It’s all a part of Phil Labonte‘s plan to never let All That Remains become formulaic, as he said in our recent interview with him. “That’s something that I don’t want to happen with All That Remains. I don’t want to be a formula band, I don’t want people to think that they know what the next All That Remains album is gonna sound like,” explained the vocalist. Continue reading »

The original song, which was a No. 1 Hot Country Songs hit during the spring of 1991, was written “about somebody who’s cheating on his wife, and every time he does it, the thunder rolls,” according to Brooks.

All That Remains‘s version of “The Thunder Rolls” appears on the band’s latest album, “Madness” which was recorded at West Valley Studios in Woodland Hills, California with producer Howard Benson, who has previously worked with such acts as MotörheadPapa RoachThree Days GraceFlyleafP.O.D. and Halestorm.

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.” Continue reading »
