All That Remains Vows To Continue Following The Death Of Guitarist Oli Herbert

Last month, All That Remains suffered a tragic and incredibly painful loss when their globally renowned, highly respected, and immeasurably talented lead guitarist and founding member Oli Herbert, unexpectedly passed away.

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 — Philip Labonte [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”.

Sonata Arctica Begins Recording New Album, Announces Acoustic Tour

It’s been very silent in the camp of Finnish melodic metal titans Sonata Arctica recently. But this break hasn’t been wasted – the band have entered the studio to kick off the recording process for their tenth studio album, due in 2019 through Nuclear Blast. But before their new record will see the light of day, Sonata Arctica are pleased to announce that they will embark on a special journey; their very first acoustic tour outside of Finland! The run will take them to London’s Islington Assembly Hall on 19th March 2019, as part of a larger European run. Support will be provided by special guests, Los Angeles CA based metallers Witherfall. Further details can be found below.

Keyboardist Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg comments, “We’ve been locked up in the studio since the end of the summer working on our next studio album and decided we needed to take a break and go out and play some shows. In the summer of 2016 we did an acoustic summer tour in Finland which was a lot of fun for both us and our fans; in fact it was so great that we wanted to do it again and this time we’re not settling for just Finland – but taking this show all around Europe for the first time ever. Now is a unique chance to hear our music in a completely different setting and we’re sure these evenings will be something really special. Our set will also include some stuff we’ve never played live before, and who knows maybe even a new song from the upcoming album. See you at the shows!”
