Massachusetts metallers ALL THAT REMAINS will release their seventh studio album, titled "The Order Of Things", on February 24, 2015 via Razor & Tie. The new disc follows up 2012's "A War You Cannot Win" and marks the first time that singer Phil Labonte collaborated on his lyrics, in this case with producer Josh Wilbur. Labonte told The Pulse Of Radio how that worked out. "He's the first guy that I collaborated lyrically with," he said. "It's always been a situation where we'll come up with vocal ideas, maybe cadences, and I'll come up with the ideas and words that go into it. So this record has really been vocally the most collaboration I've ever had from a producer/writer, working with, you know, the songs we came up with."
The band has already issued a new song from the album called "No Knock".
Although Labonte said in a recent interview that he thought "A War You Cannot Win" "sucked," it did yield the hit singles "Stand Up" and "What If I Was Nothing", which got to No. 1 and No. 2 respectively on the rock radio airplay chart.
Labonte said about the music on the new disc, "Personally, I think we have a lot of songs that are better."
The outspoken frontman also hinted at tension with the band's record label, explaining, "One of the label guys was, like, 'Are you okay with these lyrics?' And he wasn't asking me, he was asking Josh… I'm like, 'So you're going to criticize my art? Go fuck yourself. Now, not only am I not interested in what you're going to say about this song — I'm not interested in what you're going to say about anything else.'"
ALL THAT REMAINS has yet to announce tour plans behind the new disc.
