Interview: Mike Martin of ALL THAT REMAINS

Antihero Magazine‘s James Geiser spoke to guitarist Mike Martin of All That Remains.

With eight studio albums under their belt, Massachusetts-based hard rock juggernauts All That Remains show no signs of slowing down. Their album Madness dropped on April 28th via Razor & Tie Records to an overwhelmingly positive response hitting #1 US Top Hard Rock Albums and #9 US Top Rock Albums charts. The band has already toured heavily in support of the project, hitting major summer festivals like Carolina Rebellion and Montebello Rockfest, among others. They also hit the road on a headlining run, catching up with a few friends including Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, and Motionless in White. The band still has a few announced performance dates left and will continue touring throughout the remainder of 2017, look for new tour info coming soon.

In the meantime they’re keeping things moving, today All That Remains has given new life to an unexpected cover of Garth Brooks hit single “Thunder Rolls.” Their take on the Country star’s award-winning tune, (one of singer Phil Labonte‘s favorites) is compelling, reworking the song in an epic way and making it their own. In an interview with Billboard, Labonte discussed the unexpected cover choice, sharing, “We’re continuing to push what people’s notion of what All That Remains is and what we’re allowed to do and what we’re willing to do, in what ways we’re willing to go and experiment… That’s always our point — How can we reach out to new people?”

8/19 – Illinois State Fair – Springfield, IL

8/20 – Moonstock Festival – Carterville, IL

9/1 – Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – Sioux City, IA*
