All That Remains fans can rejoice. The band is set to begin recording the follow up to 2008’s Overcome, their biggest-selling release to date. Pre-production begins this week at Zing Studios in Westfield, MA on the as-yet-untitled album. Returning to the producer’s chair is Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam D who previously helmed the band’s 2006 release The Fall Of Ideals as well as 2004’s This Darkened Heart.
The band is obviously stoked about getting back to work with their buddy. “So I’m home from six weeks filling in on vocals for Killswitch, get to our practice space, and there’s Adam D again!!! FUGG!!!” joked ATR’s lead singer Phil Labonte exclusively to Noisecreep.com. “We’re in ‘time to make the donuts’ mode, and the donuts are metal tunes! We’re pumped to be working with Adam again. Nothin’ like making music in the spring with good friends in Massachusetts.”
“Like I haven’t had my ‘Phil’ of Phil from ATR as he was ‘Philling’ in on the last K$E tour,” said Adam D to Noisecreep.com. “When they asked me to do the new record I GLADLY accepted. Although their practice space reeks of stale beer, Burger King farts, and ‘Chicopee tears’, I’ve heard some of their new stuff and it sounds like it’s gonna be pretty sweet! Expect blazing leads, Greek chugs, some female bottom, a good amount of eastern Mass kicks, and big vocals from a little man. Har har har!”
All That Remains is targeting a fall release for the new album. The band is also planning a coinciding headline tour in support of it.
