Prosthetic Records recording artists ALL THAT REMAINS have reached a major milestone — their third album "The Fall of Ideals" has surpassed the 100,000 mark in U.S. sales.
"Just shy of a year ago we put out a record called 'The Fall of Ideals' and ever since that first week we have been amazed at the reaction people have had," ALL THAT REMAINS frontman Phil Labonte says. "This week we hit a milestone in ATR's career with 100,000 copies sold! We have been working towards this goal for a long time. I think HATEBREED was the first band that I was actually friends with that broke that number with 'Satisfaction...' I remember thinking how huge it seemed and it still seems enormous, especially in today's musical climate.
"Thank you to everyone who picked up the disc, who told their friends, who sent us love on MySpace, who posts on our message board, who started fan sites, and everyone who came out to shows to hang out and support ATR. We are gonna hit a few new places this year and lots of places we've been before. So come out, say what's up, and get into it!"
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.
