Massachusetts' ALL THAT REMAINS has been confirmed for the Loudpark 07 festival, set to take place October 20-21 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama City, Japan. The festival billing is shaping up as follows:
ALL THAT REMAINS
AS I LAY DYING
HEAVEN AND HELL
Commented ALL THAT REMAINS frontman Phil Labonte: "We are heading to Japan! This year, the organizers of the Loudpark 2007 festival have invited ATR to be a part of the fest. So later this fall, ATR is gonna head across the mighty pacific and deliver some live ATR insanity. We are excited more than I can tell you; we have some friends in Japan and hope to make even more. Get ready Japan, and get into it!"
In other news, Joe's Podhole recently posted an interview with Labonte from last summer's Ozzfest, featuring hilarious clips from Labonte, UNEARTH's Slo and STRAPPING YOUNG LAD's Devin Townsend. Download the poadcast at this location.
ALL THAT REMAINS recently reached a major milestone — the group's third album "The Fall of Ideals" surpassed the 100,000 mark in U.S. sales.
ALL THAT REMAINS will soon experience another first: the release of a live concert DVD in October. The DVD will feature live performances from the band's recent show at Theater of the Living Arts in Philadelphia, as well as from their upcoming show in Baltimore at The Recher Theatre on July 12. ATR fans will also be treated to tons of bonus goodies on the new DVD, including behind-the-scenes footage, band and fan interviews, a live photo slideshow and all of the band's videos.
In other ALL THAT REMAINS news, July will find the hard-working band filming a video for the third single from "The Fall of Ideals", "Not Alone", in between tour dates. Director Soren will handle the shoot, having already produced videos for UNEARTH and LIGHT THIS CITY. After a handful of domestic tour dates (including a special appearance on the Sounds of the Underground tour), the band heads to Mexico and then Europe through August, where they will play several major festivals including the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany.
