ALL THAT REMAINS Announce Album Title, Release Date

ALL THAT REMAINS, the Massachusetts-based act featuring former SHADOWS FALL vocalist Philip Labonte, have set "The Fall of Ideals" as the title of their new album, due on July 11 via Prosthetic Records. The follow-up to 2004's "This Darkened Heart" was recorded at Zing Recording Studios in Westfield, Massachusetts with Adam Dutkiewicz (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE) and Peter Wichers (ex-SOILWORK). The album artwork was created by renowned artist Travis Smith (OPETH, ICED EARTH). The band has set up an in-studio photo blog to keep fans updated on the progress of the new record.

"We've got 11 new tracks, and we're going to go ahead and redo a track from our first release [2002's 'Behind Silence and Solitude'] called 'Follow'," Labonte recently told "We're going to take a fresh look at an old song. I'm not sure if that will be on the U.S. release — it could end up being an import track.

"We've got that blazing double-bass, that fast metal drumming and there will be a significant increase in vocal variety," Labonte added. "We're going to have more singing, but there's also going to be more of that death-metal, Cookie Monster growl — that old CANNIBAL CORPSE, 'Tomb of the Mutilated' stuff. There's going to be more of that shout, like THE HAUNTED.

"There's a bunch of different things I want to try on this record," he continued. "It won't be just more singing, because singing sells records. It's more variety — there's a bunch of stuff we like that I can do. I'm sort of a master of none — I don't have the highest highs or the cleanest cleans, and I'm not the best singer in the world, but I can cover a lot of bases and do it well. We're also just trying to solidify what the ALL THAT REMAINS sound is — it's just going to be more of what we did last time."

Coinciding with the release date, the band will make its first appearance on the illustrious Ozzfest tour throughout the United States in July and August.
