ALL THAT REMAINS Singer Slams 'Spineless' Frontmen Who 'Hide Behind' Their Bands

Vocalist Philip Labonte of Massachusetts metallers ALL THAT REMAINS has posted the following message on his Facebook page:

"Got a [Facebook] email that said 'random metal blog' said you hide behind Facebook. I submit that MOST (not all) frontmen hide behind their own band. Not willing to be honest, they're just spineless and won't really divulge their opinion in the fear that it may affect their band or record sales. Now, there are a lot of honest people who really don't have an opinion about most things, and that's cool. I'm not here to judge them. But for those who have an opinion and won't say what it is 'cause they are afraid of the possibility of negative effects, I say FUCK THAT. I'm just as much a normal guy as any of you are. I am worth no more, and no less, than any of you reading this. So let the blogs talk shit, while they take money from labels, to promote the records, by the bands who they shit on, while they profit from talking shit about them. That's the system, and fuck the system."

ALL THAT REMAINS recently completed tracking its new studio album, "A War You Can Not Win", for a September release via Razor & Tie/Prosthetic. The CD sees the band reunited with longtime producer Adam Dutkiewicz (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, AS I LAY DYING, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE). The record is the culmination of an intense writing period for the group that began shortly after their 18-month tour in support of "For We Are Many".

Dutkiewicz previously helmed ALL THAT REMAINS' 2010 album, "For We Are Many", as well as 2004's "This Darkened Heart" and 2006's "The Fall of Ideals".
