All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert passed away on October 16 in what is being described as "an accident at home." The band's new album Victims Of The New Disease is out today and All That Remains has announced they will tour on the record, with ex-Born Of Osiris guitarist Jason Richardson filling in for Herbert live.
“Losing Oli has been a tremendous blow to the core of ATR, but we know he wouldn’t want anything other than for us to continue. He loved this record so much – it’s some of our best work. We look forward to sharing the music with everyone – seeing our fans from the stage. From where Oli loved most. It’ll be cathartic. We’ll need it to be. We all worked very hard, and are very proud to share ‘Victim Of A New Disease’ with you. Please buy / stream / consume any way you choose: http://geni.us/atrvictimall.
If you are particularly inspired, we welcome you to submit tributes, covers, riffs, photos, stories, or a good old fashioned video air guitar with us, via the submission page at http://allthatremainsonline.com/site/rememberingoli/…Oli loved seeing people take a shot at his riffs, and we loved watching him enjoy them.
Thanks for being with us. We are all, All That Remains.
Phil, Mike, Jason, and Aaron“
