Speaking to Artisan News at SESAC’s 18th annual Pop Awards at The New York Public Library on Monday, May 5, Herbert said: “We’re currently working on our new album. It’ll be our seventh release. And hopefully we’ll be in the studio soon and the album should be out later this year.”

Pressed for more information about how the new All That Remains music is shaping up, Herbert said: “I can’t really disclose any details. We’re just writing right now, so… It’s a painstaking process filled with, ‘Oh, this is great,’ and then the next day, ‘Uh, no, this isn’t so good.'”

Asked how the songwriting process works in All That Remains , Herbert said: “Usually, I write a lot of the guitar parts. A lot of times Mike [Martin, guitar] will have an idea or Jason [Costa, drums] will have some good drum ideas. You know, we bounce things off each other and arrangements come together. Phil [Labonte, vocals] takes care of all the lyrics. And there you go.” Continue reading »
