ALL THAT REMAINS COMPLETES NEW ALBUM
All That Remains has finished work on its new studio album, which will follow up 2012's A War You Cannot Win. The yet-to-be-titled disc does not yet have a release date. Singer Phil Labonte posted his thoughts on the project at Facebook, writing that the band's goal is to "release something that challenges what All That Remains is and can do."
More controversially, Labonte also commented on the recent dissolution of a number of metal acts that came up at the same time as All That Remains, such as Bleeding Through and God Forbid. He remarked, "I’m so glad ATR have transcended 'metal' and have become 'musicians.' Labonte later walked back his comments after some negative backlash online, saying, "That last post was about 'metal' and it wasn’t about the quality of the bands mentioned. It was a reflection on how arbitrary and fickle 'metal' fans are. Stop lookin for hate."
All That Remains had a Number Two single on the rock radio chart earlier this year with "What If I Was Nothing," which marked a stylistic departure for the band.
A previous single from A War You Cannot Win, "Stand Up," spent three weeks at Number One, making it the band's first -ever chart-topper fifth consecutive Top 10 rock single.
A War You Cannot Win debuted at Number 13 on the Billboard album chart and has sold over 115,000 copies to date.
