All That Remains: Temporary Fill-In for Late Guitarist Oli Herbert Announced


All That Remains have announced that they will not cancel any of their previously-scheduled European tour dates with Sevendust next month, despite the recent death of guitarist Oli Herbert.

Herbert died last month in an accident at home at age 44. Although passing away at such a relatively young age would be tragic regardless of the circumstances, Herbert’s case had the extra sting of occurring just before today’s release of Victim of the New Disease, the band’s ninth studio album, and a record of which the band says “Herbert was especially proud.”

Jason Richardson (Born of Osiris, All Shall Perish, Chelsea Grin) will fill-in for these dates, “with more touring plans in North America being announced soon,” according to a press release.

Says vocalist Phil Labonte in a statement:

“Losing Oli has been a tremendous blow to the core of ATR. But I 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.”
