Clinging to airtight songcraft, knifepoint precise metallic instrumentation, and stadium-size hard rock hooks, All That Remains are cutting right to the chase on their ninth full-length album,“Victim of the New Disease”. The album arrives on November 9 via Eleven Seven Music.
The quintet – Philip Labonte (lead vocals), Oli Herbert (lead guitar), Mike Martin (rhythm guitar), Jason Costa (drums) and Aaron Patrick (bass, backing vocals) – has shared the punishing and patently pummeling new track “Fuck Love”. The song leaked a week ahead of schedule, with critical gate keepers like MetalSucks enthusing that the track is “easily the heaviest thing they’ve released in years (maybe ever??)” and Loudwire proclaiming that it’s a “straight-forward brutalizer centered around a beefy pendular rhythm, making it an instant pit-starter when it eventually sees the stage”.
Labonte offered this insight into the album, saying
“We decided to throw a curveball… And do the heaviest record since ‘For We Are Many’ in 2010! It was the perfect way to follow-up ‘Madness’, where we did some different styles and songs and even covered a country song. People might’ve expected something more experimental, but throwing curveballs is what we do”.
